Hello Everyone,

I'm currently a civil design engineer, and trying to switch to real estate as a Program Manager. I have an interview in a week where they tell me I will have to work on ( for about 3-4 hours ) on an operational case study.

The job is located in Paris and the job is in French .

Does anyone here have any case studies in Real estate that they can share ? and if they're from France, that would be even better.

Thank you in advance !

I am working on a job posting for a remote tax senior role. I am seeing salaries on here mentioned everywhere from 80k to 110k for big 4. I am assuming these jobs posting require massive overtime.

We are a small firm under 10 people that prioritizes work life balance. We have a 35 to 40 hour cap during tax season and 30 to 35 hours during the off-season. My gut was going to post it at a salary of $55,000 and bonuses of $20,000 but now I am hesitant.

Thoughts?

I applied & interviewed at a small firm in JUNE. I thought it went well & the owner & I knew each other from previous cases we handled. They ghosted me so I moved on. Mid November comes & I get a call from the paralegal “are you still looking for a job?” I thought that ship sailed but let’s see what they offer. It’s the holidays & I’ve got time off already scheduled. They’ve made a tempting offer but are not flexible on the time off & seem desperate. Like they want someone to put out fires.
