Will it be okay to take a break after 1 year of work experience to get some expertise in my tech domain?
Although I have a 3 month notice period, it will be difficult to grasp enough knowledge along with the office.

Yeah. It really depends upon you and your work dynamics.

I am a beginner and my current tech stack is J2EE, Spring boot and Microservices.
In my current organization, I don't see any growth opportunities such and not getting to learn much because of the support project.
Should I take the risk to resign?
I mean there are chances I might not get into any company even after job hunt in 3 months notice period

yes if you are intending to work in the industry and further develop your craft and become an asset, then honing your skills is a must. good luck to you!

What’s a good approach for dealing with account gatekeepers who are more flighty and indecisive than our client? I do hours proactive work on one direction only to have one account manager decide on a whim that they suddenly want something completely different same day as we present to client. The clients are easy but this account person changes their mind at the drop of a hat. Help.

Did my first ever negotiation. I received an offer on Friday that was 3k under the salary range I gave them. Sent off an email to initiate negotiation today. Offer letter stated I’d start in 2 weeks, but haven’t heard back. How long does it normally take? Because when I received my offer it also said my start date. Does that naturally change once negotiations are finalized?


I am currently a full-time product designer at a small agency in Toronto. A really good opportunity came up to work at a big corporate as a product designer as a contract 6+months they also offered to pay x2 my current salary. I don’t want to give up my full time job for a contract job (kind of risky for me) but I also don’t want to lose this opportunity. What should I do? Is it possible to take on both jobs for now?

Hi. I’m pregnant with my first baby (first trimester) and my team is returning to the office for the first time.

Any advice for dealing with the not-so-fun parts of pregnancy (morning sickness, exhaustion, etc.) while in the office?
