Competitive people pleaser seeks self-identity.

I have a deeply ingrained habit of being both a people pleaser and caring a lot about accomplishments, winning prizes, receiving accolades, getting praise and recognition from others. However, so much so that it clouds what I really want to do in terms of my career. Was this you? Did you recover from it? How did you sort it out? [more inside]

I have substantial savings but no job. How to get someone to rent to me?

I have ended a long-term relationship where we both had mental health issues (bipolar depression in my case). I haven't worked since 2005 but am a graduate (was back in 1991 though, I'm 44 now) and have about 12 years of work experience. I believe I could work again if given the opportunity, and am willing to do the work either on myself or in terms of learning marketable skills to become employable. I also have about £50,000 ($70,000 I guess?) remaining from an inheritance, which I'm using to live on. It's actually possible to buy a modest apartment where I live for that money, but then I would not be eligible for out-of-work benefits, hence the need to rent. I have never rented before, I lived in my parents house until age 36 and then with my partner in her mother's house until age 44. So I have no references to offer as a previous renter, and am quite socially isolated due to shyness so not sure about finding character references either. My credit score is great due to only modestly using a credit card for 10 years and paying it off each month, and not getting into debt during that time. How can I best sell myself to a letting agency as someone their landlords might want to rent to, and what concessions would I need to make for renting to be a possibility - pay a big deposit? rent in advance? money in escrow account?

Any Melbourne tech companies that use a "Stripe"-like interview process?

I tend to have bad experiences with traditional job interviews. I'm interested in finding out whether there are any tech companies based in Melbourne, Australia, that use an interview process similar to the one used by Stripe.com. Simply, Stripe gets candidates to work on a simulated project (http://www.quora.com/Stripe-company/What-is-the-engineering-interview-process-like-at-Stripe) rather than, say, writing code on a whiteboard.

Working in Rutherford, NJ. Where should I live? Can I live in NYC?

I'm a single, college-educated, mid-twenties male who will very likely be relocating from the West Coast to the Tri-State area in a few months for a full-time desk job in Rutherford, New Jersey. I'd love to know your recommendations for affordable rooms, apartments, studios, etc. in safe and convenient neighborhoods. [N.B. I grew up in and lived in South Brooklyn for many years, so I'm familiar with the NYC area, but I've never lived in NJ nor ever considered living there in the past.] [more inside]

Place on the internet to commiserate and get support about crappy jobs.

As the title says, I was just wondering if there's some place on the internet where people unhappy with their jobs can congregate, rant, commiserate, get advice, get support, support others, feel accepted and not alone, etc. It should preferably be an active place, not a forum that gets a single new post every few days or weeks. I know it's not healthy to just rage and complain all the time about a situation. Sometimes, however, you've just got to get something off your chest and know that someone is listening. And girlfriends and parents can only take so much of this, productive or not, because they're so much closer to you. This is more about just meeting people that are experiencing similar difficulties in life and having an active, understanding support group. [more inside]

I want to move my career in a different direction.

I graduated with an M.A. in English and through luck, contracting, and family connections, came to work in nuclear power. My administrative role has changed to field work. I prefer office work, especially writing reports etc. My area in nuclear is very specialized, and due to downsizing in the industry, I feel a real need to get familiar with my prospects for other jobs and diversify my skills. However, I have no idea how to begin, research being one of my weak points. Long explanation + details inside. [more inside]

How can I apply for a different position internally?

I work in web development at my day job. Traditionally, I have done a combination of back-end and front-end work, leaning more toward front-end work, but I have a CS/math background, so I have gotten quite good at JavaScript and building interactive clients. Now I feel like I've hit a wall where I need to move down the stack in order to be happy at work. [more inside]

If I could just care less about my work, I'd do a better job.

I'm the kind of person who gets worried enough they'll do their work not well, or make a mistake, that they end up either not starting or working too slowly and filled with dread. Last week, I had to work late on a project. I had two beers in the process, found I cared less about the anxiety and dread and perfectionism, and just did a better, less stressful job. I want to do this without drinking. [more inside]

Technical writing... by robots?

I saw a somewhat blogspammy news article the other day (regrettably, I cannot remember where, and google is failing me) which listed the top ten or twenty professions that would be eliminated by automation in the next twenty years. Among them were ones I would expect: telemarketing, retail sales, etc. Nothing surprising there. And then they threw technical writing into the mix. My question is, how could software automate technical writing? [more inside]

Transitioning from profit to not-for-profit at 40: what's negotiable?

After a decade in for-profit marketing in a secondary city, I'm being seriously considered for something close to a dream job in Toronto. The main issue is that there'd be a major salary drop -- from CAD$75,000 a year to sub-CAD$50,000, and I'd be moving from a place where the cost of living is low, and my house is mortgage-free and paid off, to, well, Toronto. My current location is not commutable to Toronto. What can I negotiate with my (hopeful) employer to help make up the difference? [more inside]

Should I ask about 2nd interview after phone interview a while back?

I had a phone interview with a HR recruiter of a company three weeks ago. We both acknowledged that the company won't fill the full time position until at least a month later while I remain working as a freelancer. Now, I am about to finish this project and I wonder if I should call to let the recruiter know that I will be free in the following weeks. The reason being that the company is located out of state so it won't be easy to take a personal leave for it if I am on a new project. I understand that the recruiter would call back if I am moved on to the next step but since my status on their career site is still "in progress" and I am on the "take the next project or not" situation. Do you think it would be appropriate to call and ask about a in-person interview? Thanks for your help.
