Why do some companies ask for 8+ YoE + MBA for mid-management positions (Manager, Sr. manager, Associate, Sr. Associate). At 8 YoE the super talented people would probably be looking for director level roles. Wouldn’t it be better to get them at like 3-5YoE?

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications

Any tips on how to figure out what one *really* want to do for their career? I know consulting isn’t it, but I’m having a hard time finding a role or company or even another type of career (e.g., law or education) that really speaks to me and seems fulfilling or exciting or at least worth the effort to switch into. Any tips for introspection or how to navigate this weirdly defeating feeling are very welcomed :)

Hey my ADHD peeps, serious question. I was diagnosed in my early 40s which explains A LOT of my life's failures (i.e. changing college majors, multiple job changes/getting fired, bad with time management). None of that pales in comparison than getting divorced. Is it worth it to reach out to my ex to let him know what I learned? I don't want to get back with him. We are complete opposites and I think that telling him can possibly provide solace for both of us. Thoughts?

Lately, for some reason, I feel like I’ve really hit a wall. I feel no motivation to do anything and constantly procrastinate until the last minute to work on an assignment. Then, I’d stress about doing a bad job and getting fired. This is a vicious cycle and I know that I should seek counseling. But beyond that, what else should I do? Has anyone experienced this before, and how did you get out of this cycle?
