Can I disclose a public sector client if it's public knowledge to an interviewer? As in our contract was published and reported on, is it ok for me to say I work on it?

How long would you wait before following up with a recruiter after a phone interview if you haven’t heard back? Everything in this process has gone so quickly until now and I don’t know whether I should reach out or not.

The turnaround time has been less than 24 hours for everything but now it’s been radio silence and I’m starting to get anxious.

Nightmare situation today at my first Zoom trial. On Friday, the court said trial would begin at 1:30 PM on Monday. We informed our clients and all our witnesses to be ready at that time. Never got a Zoom link, figured it would show up Monday morning. At 9:01 AM on Monday, we get an email saying, among other things, “Defense counsel has not appeared for trial.” Then, another email came immediately after that, with a Zoom link included. It’s just me and the paralegal in the office at this point.

Been at Facebook for a month in a BizOps role. However, I just got a (very delayed) offer to be a Marvel product manager at Disney Streaming. Love facebook but my end goal is product management and it looks near impossible to switch internally since I’m in one of their HQ offices and most of the roles are sales. Should I switch?

Question for people with nannies/home child care in NYC…how much are you paying them? Any benefits being offered to them? Sick days? Paid holidays? Vacation? First time Mom and the range I am getting from candidates seems so high not sure what is fair in this field.
