Why is it that every time I try to take time off EVERY TEAM pops out of the woodwork for something to do before I leave? Even the quiet teams. It’s Monday and I’ve already logged 20 hours for the week.

Probably, but also some of these teams are huge. There are multiple mostly competent midlevels that can handle.

Pro tip- tell people you’re going to be out a day before you actually are. That way the dump comes on your 2nd to last day, and on your last day no one knows you’re there so you can quietly knock out those fires sent your way.

This is genius.

“Oh, yeah I was supposed to take off Thursday, but my traveling companion had a work emergency come up, and there’s just a ton to do here, that we pushed it back a day.” Look like a team player, free goodwill, and you can cut out early on your actual last day. I don’t do it every time, but anything longer than a 3 day weekend

I have been in sales even before college. I'm reaching a burn out. I feel like the expectations get higher the more work I put in and that ends with me putting on many hats to get done. I can't catch a break, let alone allowed a decent vacation without having to negotiate based on performance. I honestly don't want to be in sales forever. I'm versatile when it comes to any tasks due to the nature of wearing many hats. Any suggestions?

I need help. I'm dealing with multiple losses in the same week and having a hard time... I took some time off from work but I have no motivation to do anything. I don't want to go back to work and don't care about my work right now. I want to quit but I don't want to make a rash decision but need a long break. It's also not fair to my team that I can't give it my 100%. What can I do?

Trying to figure out holidays with extended family. My husband and I have young kids on the east coast. His sister and her husband live on the opposite coast.

Does it make sense to ask everyone to come to us for holidays given that we have young kids and limited vacation time? Is that fair?

Does anyone have regular flings? How do you keep it discreet?

But ever since I went on a vacation with friends and ended up having a hot make out session in a bathroom with some guy, I can’t stop thinking about it. I thought I feel guilty but I just want more.

Starting us off with an important tip: Your resume is a marketing document, not an autobiography. It should include relevant jobs, responsibilities, and perhaps most importantly, achievements. Where you can quantify an accomplishment or just talk up a major project you led at work or in an internship, do so. The point is to make the hiring manager think, “Wow, I need to talk to this person! They seem like a good fit!”
