What does a healthy team member-supervisor relationship look like?

After several years working for a boss who's also a friend, I've made a move to a new career and and a much more impersonal manager.

How do I value personal and household effects for customs purposes?

I am shipping a container of household effects from the United States to Ireland, where I am a resident.

Took a sick day on my first week of a new job

Hi, everyone. So it's only been my third day of a new job and I had to call in sick. I feel absolutely mortified and really worried about what my manager thinks of me now. I would have still gone if it was just the death-like flu symptoms, but I was also vomiting and I knew I wouldn't have been able to make it there, let alone the rest of the day. On top of that, my wallet was stolen at the doctor's office which had the employee security badge to enter the building inside it, so I'm going to have to ask for a replacement for that as well - in my first week! Talk about bad luck... I called in to let my manager know, and she did say that she would rather not have me come in and spread germs in the office and it was best that I stayed home.Still, I'm very worried about the impression I may have given to her about my reliability. I don't want her to think I'm flaky and not fit for the position. My mind is so fuzzy right now, please help me figure out what I can to assure her that this was a one-time thing and she can be confident that she can trust me to be a reliable employee... Thanks in advance, guys.

Was there a happy ending, being the old person in that college class?

I've been working through a career change decision and it involves going back to school. Did you change careers in your 30s and go back to school? Did it work out? (More details/specifics, but I'm interested in eventually practicing Clinical Psychology). [more inside]

Is the Johnson O'Conner Aptiude Test worth taking in your 30s?

I've never really known what I want to be when I grow up, and now that I'm a proper adult in my thirties, I'd like to figure it out. I'm planning on taking a few tests (Meyer Briggs and Strong Interest Inventory), and came across the Johnson O'Conner aptitude test. It looks like a great tool for choosing a college major, but is it worth taking this late in the game? [more inside]

Figuring out next steps in IT career or change?

Have a general bachelor's degree and coming up on 10 years as a Helpdesk technician. I work for local government and make pretty good money (for a Helpdesk field tech guy... Probably 5 bucks more an hour than industry standard). However, I'm bored out of my mind and my motivation is definitely waning. Thinking of programming but not sure whether I would benefit more from an Associates or a dev bootcamp. [more inside]
