Wouldnt say it was a win but I negotiated sponsorship to professional organizations with my firm. However, they keep pushing it off. They say they still intend to do it but do not want to pay for any professional affiliations during COVID which is frustrating.

Which professional organization? Well played.

That's a great value add, but odd that they asked you to wait until after covid. How is that relevant?

Hi European 🐠 My company is currently looking for IT architects and tech consultants (any level).

What has been the best lesson you’ve ever taught?

My local zoo and park system is looking for an Internal Audit Manager. 5 years experience, CPA preferred. Salary range is $60-75k. Are they completely unrealistic about what someone would be willing to make for that position as a CPA??? Like I've been an auditor, CPA for 8 years now, been a supervisor and a lead. I'd want double.

How bad does it look to prospective employers to change jobs every 3 years? I've done this since college (12 years ago) and have tripled my salary as a result. Granted, I've switched between the same two companies each time, getting a big pay bump in the process. Now, the other company is looking at bringing me back again (3rd time). The pay bump won't be as big, but much better WLB, less travel, and I'll be able to do what I love. Opinions on this?

Got a bit too drunk at a work happy hour. Nothing embarrassing happened but I definitely blacked out and could’ve said stuff that I wouldn’t have said sober. Everyone else was also drinking quite a bit, so it was fine but not ideal and I’ve just been ashamed. Lesson learned. This happen to anyone? How do you get over the shame/anxiety of “what happened?”

How would you go about telling a company you don’t want to do anymore interviews? I was originally told probably two or three, then “one last one”, and now “potentially two more”. In each interview, they talk like I have the role and keep asking how much notice I would need to give as if they’re in a rush to get me in, but then schedule another round of interviews. Honestly the interviews seem more like meet and greets. Cont.

While everyone’s situation is unique, it appears to me that there is a general (and substantive) difference between the mindset of senior execs/partners (Gen Xers) and the Gen Z/Millennial troops as to the need to head back to the office. There is a world of difference between “the office” as code for “client lunches, rounds of golf” vs “needless commuting time that will eat into a working day that is already unsustainable”. Do you feel your organization is in touch with where you are?
