I'm the Deputy Head at an international school. I was shortlisted for a Head Teacher job with a rival school in the same small town. I declined the interview but now I am apprehensive about my boss finding out. Snowflakes inside! [more inside]
I'm a Canadian who got a job in the US and is moving to New York. I need to open an account at an American bank. What's a good American bank? Any to avoid? Is there a difference or are they all the same? (Alas, for those tempted to say TD, it actually confers no advantages to those from Toronto OR the Dominion.)
I want to be a journalist, but I'm not sure how to get there from where I am now. Looking for any advice, tips, or resources anybody can offer me. [more inside]
I am interested in a vehicle that is being sold by a private seller that is 3 1/2 hours away and in a different state. The asking price is $7500, which is a lot of cash to be carrying, especially after all those stories in the news about the cops being tipped off by the bank and just taking your money. [more inside]
I am interested in getting into corporate ethnography/ doing ethnographic research for market research, particularly as a freelancer for now. Tell me what you know about how/who/where. [more inside]

I have worked for the federal government for five years (2 on Capitol Hill and 3 in SLC) and also for a well respected local nonprofit here in Salt Lake City, UT for the past two years. I'm Associate Director and things are good. However, unless I become Exec. Director there isn't much upward mobility. Plus, I wrote another question earlier this year about avoiding burnout, which is a problem with nonprofits, long hours, small staffs, etc. What I'm saying is I can't see working in the nonprofit world long term. I don't really see myself transferring to another nonprofit in town either. [more inside]
Should I change my job, and if so, to what? *Or is it a symptom of something else, and how should I address it? I have my own office on campus, with software I require, challenging and interesting work, huge flexibility, variety, good pay (with 25% casual loading, 9% superannuation) and respect. But it's not that simple. [more inside]
What questions should I ask to evalualate a job offer with salary and stock options in Silicon Valley? [more inside]
I just got my MFA! Hooray! I just saw my student loans! Oh no! Here's the skinny: I owe about $117,000 with an average interest rate of 6.5%. But! I got a great job that pays about $85k, so we'll call it even on the risk/reward front. What're the best policies for paying back student loans? Are there tips and tricks? Things I should be doing now as opposed to later? What's the deal with refinancing? Is there such a thing as private financing (i.e., you agree to pay all my loans and then I pay you at like 3%?) for student loans? This whole field is kind of a mystery and while I intend to pay my loans in full, I want to make sure I'm being as smart about it as possible. Given my salary and average living cost, I can afford to put in about 40k a year.
I have a MLS from 1993. I have a MS Education in Counseling from 2000. I do not have my license to practice counseling, and it is probably far too late to get it. I never used my MLS either. (My undergrad is in Religious Studies.) [more inside]
I am a new boss at a small company and our business model recently changed. I have to hire about 10 new people — and layoff about 10 current staffers. The moves are to bring on the new skills we need for this new era. How can I do this kindly, respectfully, and in a way that sets up the team members who are staying with us for success after this rough period? [more inside]
I work at a small music school where we hold raffles at fairs for a big giveaway. We pick the winner fairly and proceed to contact others who participated by offering a free lesson. I'd like to contact non winners only after the winner has claimed their prize but it was suggested to contact everyone regardless if the winner claims prize. What's the best protocol when dealing with raffle giveaways?
I recently took some disability-related work accomodations and time off. This pissed off a coworker of mine, who doesn't think I should get accomodations for a disability she doesn't think is that serious. Since then, she's been treating me badly at work and taking passive-aggressive action against me. What do I do? [more inside]
Don't want to bother the recruiter, but at a loss for what to do [more inside]
I'm thinking of offering a temporary discount on rent to get someone to take over my less-than-ideal room in an awesome apartment--is this a viable marketing strategy or will such an unorthodox move scare off potential renters? [more inside]
My boss's birthday is coming up and our small team always gives gifts. I am struggling with what to buy her. I know her well, but I don't want something too personal. Here is some background: We work in mental health crisis. She also lives on a hobby farm where she takes in animals who are in crisis (sick, dying, or on their way to the slaughter house) and has a heart of gold. She loves her chickens and horses. She is a soon to be empty nester. She also enjoys cooking and baking. So far, my only thought is a magazine subscription to the Modern Farmer, but I am not 100% on it. Any thoughts or suggestions?
I have my own business, but I can't work with my business partner much longer. For various reasons, my exit plans keep shifting back. [more inside]
I'm at a point in my life where progress has stopped and I need to make some decisions about how to move forward. I can't keep doing what I've been doing and I could use some advice on new things to try. Difficulty level: late 30s emotional wreck in need of new direction. As ever, special snowflake details and apologetic wall of text inside. [more inside]
