Any tips for someone who discounts good feedback but heavily focuses on the opportunities to improve? So much that I have a fear of getting fired despite receiving overall good feedback. I started a new job earlier this year. The function of the role and industry is new to me. My manager told me he generally has higher expectations than the rest of the organization. Originally, I viewed this as a great learning opportunity but can't help to think I'm not cut out for this and fear the worst.
I feel that my healthcare data science experience is hurting my tech profile. I was being approached by FAANG recruiters previously, but now, i get interview requests from some random consultants. How do i change this? I am also looking to exit the healthcare industry.

W+K is in hot water in Brazil — another instance of ads going wrong because of little empowered-to-speak-up diversity at the table at any stage of the concepting, pitching, greenlighting, production, post-production, finishing, final approval and distribution?
