  • Are 7 references excessive for an entry-level position?
    by /u/randomkid1 on July 29, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    I have applied and interviewed for an entry-level engineering position, but I need 7 references due to it being a government position with an extensive background check. Currently, I only have 4 from my previous co-op, which I think is plenty, however, HR will not move forward with my application […]

    I (28F) am currently working full time at a small nonprofit. When i took this job almost two years ago, i knew i was signing up for a lot, but especially recently (actually for the past year or more i guess) I have felt overwhelmed with my job and it’s gotten to the point to where both my […]

    by /u/terricottasb on July 29, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    I’m going to be a college freshman this year. I want to take advantage of college as a time with no expenses to build wealth. I know numerous college students who have started college consulting businesses earning six figures a year. My goal is to do the same. I want to start a college […]

  • How to deal with being disliked at the workplace?
    by /u/loafclub on July 29, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    I know I probably seem thin-skinned for asking this question, and maybe I am. I just recently started a new job and I feel like my trainer doesn’t really like me. I struggle with lots of anxiety regarding being disliked especially at the workplace. How do you deal with this? Just kind of just […]

  • What should I be looking out for when being hired by a contracting company? What should I be sure to ask before accepting the position?
    by /u/evilpotato1121 on July 29, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    TL;DR There's a contract offer that I'm fairly certain I'll get after this final interview. After finding out about the severe lack of (or at least subpar) benefits, it's making me think I'm missing out on other things that I'm not thinking about. Are there other things I should be asking about for […]

  • Should I accept my new offer to pursue Engineering Consulting or stick with my current to do a Tech Dev program?
    by /u/stef99ane19 on July 29, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    I graduated in May with an electrical and computer engineering degree, and I received an offer with a banking company a while back into their Technology dev program in another city. But I recently interviewed with a company to be an engineer consulting at a small company with less than 200 people, […]

  • A job I like or money?
    by /u/polaricecub on July 29, 2021 at 8:24 pm

    I've been working remotely for a while for a company that is far from where I live. It has been going great and I'm really enjoying the job and working from home. And there's some really interesting things we going to start to be doing. Unfortunately since the UK is now open, my company has […]

  • Please share stories of how you started vs where you are now?
    by /u/beyondtravel on July 29, 2021 at 8:18 pm

    I’m 30yo and probably having a 1/3 life crisis. In college I was pretty optimistic. Then I got my first job, nearly cried every day from the shock of ‘is this really my life’ but stayed for 2yrs because everyone was in my ear about showing you’re a committed/ good employee bull… then I […]

  • Is my email weird?
    by /u/MellowMoos3 on July 29, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    So recently I had to change my personal email to a more secure email platform due to constant spam, fraudulent emails, and data breaching. It was simply annoying me to be honest lol. I went from Gmail to Proton Mail, and I am already highly pleased with Proton's dedication to email security. I […]

  • Starting a writing side-gig with full-time job?
    by /u/dothejoy on July 29, 2021 at 8:08 pm

    Hello, internet people! I'm 28, M, and I've been working in a govt admin role for 2+ years now. I'm finding the work to be quite monotonous and unchallengening (mostly data entry), so I'm sort of snooping around for potential side-gigs that might eventually lead to new career paths (not in a […]
