I just started a new job last week (yay!) and am feeling alternately excited and stressed by all of the new things I have to learn before I feel like I know what I'm doing again. Any tips/tricks from your experiences for how to navigate these transitions successfully and get off to a good start?
Hi All, After graduating college I got a job in a field that I thought I might like, however about 3 months in I realized that I really don’t like it and started to look for other postitions. That was over a year ago. My problem is that have no idea what I want to do and I’ve been applying to jobs with really ... Read more
Hi everyone -- I would say I'm at the mid-level of my career in higher ed, but I'm thinking about a switch to an entirely different field. Actually, I'm considering a drastic change that would mean moving back to my home state and opening up a hospitality business.

Trust my guts and keep applying, hoping at some point it will pay off
I’d like to transition out of the restaurant business but I don’t know how to translate my skill set to another career. I’m single & can't afford a lower wage. Which direction should I head towards?
Stay
Just jump out there & try something
I work remote and love the idea of my job. The challenge is the company I work for cannot live up to the deliverables they promise. I report into the CEO, and he is dismissive and non responsive to my needs in order to execute partnerships and down right verbally abusive. I am left defeated and unfulfilled but am terrified to leave because I ... Read more
Should I stay?
Or Should I go?
How do I get his attention to focus on delivering on his promises?
Need a gut-check on this. I JUST found out I'm pregnant, and I've JUST thrown my name into the ring for a newly-created, higher-level position at my company. Seems silly, but...when should I tell them?
As soon as possible
Wait as long as you can
Never tell them 😈
