For those who refinanced MBA loans, what kind of rates are you getting? I refinanced about a year ago while I had some CC debt and got a 10 year with a 5.36% for $150k (had some undergrad loans in that too). I have now paid off all CCs and am wondering if I can get a better rate. Probably will stick to a 7-10 year term as we are prioritizing other things first.
Got perm certification notification last week. Anyone knows how long does it take nowadays to submit i140, 485, 765, and 131 starting from now? I’ve heard it can take 4-5 months just to submit after your notification as they process perm, get a paper version etc. Is this similar to your experience?

Trying to negotiate a salary increase. Firm wants to hear of any examples of salaries at comparable Florida firms. I’m currently at an AM200 in Jacksonville, 4th year, $165k base + bonuses up to $37,500 based on hours. Last year I billed 2100 and got $30k in bonus. Anyone at a similar sized firm in a relatively comparable city (Jax/Tally/Orlando/Tampa?) that is willing to share salary and billable hour requirements?

You’re getting promoted but anticipating offer is going to be lower then expected and you want to negotiate (meeting has not happened yet). Would you bring up that the offer is lower than expected in the meeting or be thankful and excited during the meeting and set up a follow up to discuss compensation? I know it would need approval by more than just my boss anyway

Design question for my work from home ladies - how did you decorate around a standing desk, large monitors, etc?
I find that with a large monitor there’s not so much I can put on the wall without having the monitor partially cover it - especially when the desk moves.
I don’t mind if the decor is covered when I’m using it standing, but want it to look nice when it’s lower down. Also find that with the monitor/laptop another square on the wall is too much of the same shape - any inspiration?
What were some breaking points for you that made it clear it was time for a change in career?. I've been with my company for 10 years and I'm having a hard time with making this decision
It is only now in my early thirty's and after a couple of really tough years at work, do I recognize the benefit and need for a mentor. I do not think I have ever had one really, only 'okay' male bosses. As the only woman in my company (for 5+ years now) I'm not even sure how I can find a 'mentor' outside of my company or if that is even a thing? I see that my more 'successful' friends have had female bosses they rave about or appointed mentors at each level of their career. Any advice?
How can I encourage my boyfriend to be better with grooming? My partner is late 30s and is clean, but he doesn’t take care of his grooming sufficiently. Teeth: doesn’t use an electric toothbrush or floss, Skin: won’t use skincare or sunscreen, Feet: gnarly toenails, Hair: thinning and he’s sad about it but seems resigned to it instead of trying topical treatments, Ears: doesn’t qtip so they look gross. He’s otherwise handsome and takes care of himself with healthy eating and exercise.
Hi ladies! I feel I am ready to find a more managerial role: manager, supervisor, director, etc. I usually take positions I am over qualified for, which leaves me underpaid and not very challenged. However, I think not having previous manager experience holds me back as well. How does someone get manager roles without having manager experience? Someone has to yes in order to gain it, right?! Is there a way to phrase answers in an interview to get the positions?

Been offered a Sr. leadership position making significantly more money at a different company. I’m relatively new to this field, so I’m not sure I should take the leap. Also worth mentioning I do not get along with my current boss and my current role is newly created so they haven’t given much thought to what my career trajectory would look like . On the other hand I am learning a lot and I really like the company. Any opinions here?
Feedback a toxic male peer (that thinks he is above you)? This was our first call (+3ppl). His introduction round took 10/45min about himself and what he thought of the meeting topic (before I introduced myself). I was firm and polite to say we needed to keep time. He told me to “hold on” and continued talking. I let him finish his sentence and talk for ~3min. When done he says “sorry I was texting, could you pls repeat?”. This is someone I will have to work with. Should I address it now? Not?
Should I put down my race when applying for jobs? I’m black. I’ve been told by POC when they put white, they get more responses.
Leaving a toxic job that I’ve only been at for like 3 months, how would you phrase having a conversation to resign? I only resigned one other time and it was somewhere I enjoyed and was at for 4 years so no clue how to go about this.
I’m in talks with management about being a candidate for a new position, Project Manager. This would be a promotion for me; however, a member of my team indicated the company may not want to increase compensation for this role even though I would have more responsibilities. It was even stated that “They may even want to fire people who asked for more money.” I am staggered. Do you advice for me? Should I look elsewhere? Any referrals? Any insight/assistance appreciated.
My close group of friends (10 of us) are 28-30 & have really successful careers! (We’re all first Gen working women too!)
I have a new friend who is in her mid 30’s & doesn’t really have a career. She’s in a relationship & mostly relies on her partner.
I feel bad because my close girlfriends & I are always doing things (spa days, dinners, brunches, travel) and she can’t afford to go.
I always want to be inclusive and think of others - what would you do?

Depends on field. But you can’t beat a T15 MBA for placements into certain roles. Without context of your goals and career aspirations, hard to say what you should do.
