I lost my brother a few days ago and everything in our family has turned upside down.
He owned a restaurant and my mom wants me to run that now. I was planning to start a pre-school. Now I am confused about which one to do. The restaurant is ready, I just need to start and on the other hand the pre-school has to be built up yet. What should I do?

I recently was laid off from my job of 7+ years.
I sort of fell into the role, and I'm not sure if it's what I want to continue doing. The issue is, it's fairly difficult to break into a new industry when all of my professional experience is in another field. I'm not even quite sure what direction I'd like to go in, but I'm really fed up with the corporate world, and would really like to explore other options. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I have an interview tomorrow and the place i am interviewing with wants me to fill out an "Acknowledgement of Education and Experience Verification" form that requires for me to select 1 of 2 options: 1) Yes, my current employer does know that I am interviewing and the agency's Human Resources office has my permission to verify my work, both performance and experience, with my current employer at this time OR 2) No, I do not wish to have the agency's Human Resources Office contact my present employer at this time.
If i am selected for a position and accept, I understand that my current employer will then be asked to verify my experience.
I currently work for a Temp agency and my Recruiter (contact at my agency) knows I am going to be interviewing tomorrow at the place I am interviewing at; however, the job I am on a Temporary assignment for does not know. Based on the form and options I have to choose from above, should I tell the company I am doing a Temporary assignment for that I am interviewing for the agency tomorrow? Apparently, they have to verify my work (consisting of performance and experience) with my current job. I don't want to have to worry about them telling me not to come back because they know I took off of work to interview for a job. Does anyone have any helpful advice?

I'm looking to make no less than $22/hr.
Should I still list that amount even if the job posting the pay is $25/hr?

It’s easier said than done to speak up at work—the irony.
This may feel especially true for women who need to navigate how to be assertive without worrying about appearing abrasive. After all, research suggests that women who use their voices at work (and break free from passive, people-pleasing gender role norms) can be labeled unlikable, which can take a toll on their careers. But keeping quiet can be even more damaging.
