I am sure this is an unpopular opinion but when did Linkedin become the place to share that you just had your third child?!

I mean can we keep nothing professional?? And no, announcing you spent the last 9-10 months growing a person is not part of your professional portfolio. And believe me I am all for the equalizing of the sexes in the workplace and I know a bias exists in the world where women aren't promoted because of the possibility of her leaving once she has a child, etc. I am sure all this was meant to do was maybe 'bridge some conversation' who the heck knows. It came from a VP, so way to come down on high there so the rest of us common folk feel this is a safe space. It just seemed so weird and all of the 'congratulations' - its the third one, we get it, you an procreate. You would never see a dude posting about having a kid on Linkedin and maybe this is why these stereotypes continue. Like I said 'unpopular opinion' but this felt like a post that was better suited for your Facebook page.

Do people respond to your thank you notes after an interview?
I’m in the middle of a job search, and send thank you notes after each interview to everyone I meet with. However, for the first time in my career, I have people responding back to my thank you notes, which is lovely but it makes me wonder is this now an uncommon practice and that’s why people are responding? Even if it is outdated, I’m pretty sure I’m going to continue doing so if only out of habit.

Any advice to someone looking to get a job internationally in the next year or two years?
I've always wanted to live abroad and gain international experience. How do I find people to network with in other countries? For background, I have about 5.5 years of professional experience in engineering. Curious to hear about those of you who have done it!

Five years ago today, I filed for unemployment compensation.
It was one of the hardest things I've done, professionally. I had been let go with very little warning by a supervisor who just couldn't be pleased. The organization offered no constructive feedback, no mentoring, and no work/life balance. The days immediately after that were a mix of fear and relief that I was out of that awful environment. I won't lie. I spent six very hard, discouraging months looking for a role and being rejected before I took a "survival job." I spent about 18 months there until a position in the agency where I had always wanted to work opened. I got it and just celebrated my third anniversary here. I've even been promoted and am now in the position I wanted most. I shared this in the hope that someone who is facing the same thing right now will read it and know that things won't always be as hard as they are today. In the meantime, take care of yourself and your family, and remember that work is what you do, not who you are. You are worthy and valuable, no matter where you do (or don't) work.
