I have an interview next week for a position on a team that is located in Copenhagen in Denmark.
March 1,2023 at 5:22PM UTC
I would be the only member of the team in the US. What do I need to know about Danish people and how they think that can help me out? I have been doing some research on my own, but I figured I would check here and see if anyone had any knowledge or tips.

Cansomeon someone please explain profit sharing on a rudimentary level?
I am interviewing and they said, in lieu of bonuses, they do profit sharing of about 3-4% after a year of employment. So, is that something you are paid or is that used as an alternative to a 401k? They didn't mention a separate retirement. I didn't want to look like an idiot and frankly, there are so many different explanations on Google that now, I definitely feel like one.
The pay in this job is 30k lower than what I was making and they used the profit share as a selling point. I would pass altogether but we're hiring for money.

I'm working on my orientation for The National Society of Leadership & Success.
Would anyone like to start a virtual SNT group? We can meet new people and help each other along the way. I think 4-5 people to join is good. Looking forward to connecting!

So grateful tonight to Jesus Christ as I relax at home, to have a warm home, good food to eat, and no stress or troubles plaguing my mind, and no health issues.
Sometimes, these little things are precious. Join me and count your blessings tonight if you're alive and healthy and have a home and a steady job.

I'm an older employee coordinating events for a university program in international studies.
I got very ill lately and was out for a few weeks on medical leave. Our admin claims she updated my event planning spreadsheet while I was out. When I returned, I checked the spreadsheet and didn't see any changes. I asked her about it and it baffles me that she would make that claim when I know I meticulously entered data she claims to have entered. Internally I'm calling bs but I didn't say anything. Similarly, our boss wants me now to cc her and the admin for all communications regarding new events - our practice has been to copy the main email address for our unit so anyone could if need be, find information (and on the planning spreadsheet). The fact is that it is already mid-semester, and there are no new events. It's gaslighting and micromanaging. I maintain my calm and good will but I no longer feel invested and am working for the insurance coverage. Once I can get onto Medicare part B, I will leave. Or that's what I'm thinking. I don't feel inspired and I'm not used to that. I'm very mission oriented.

I am experiencing wage compression.
New hires are being brought in for $4-$6/hr more than tenured employees. My director says there is nothing that can be done and it’s out of her hands. Employees are leaving one after another, and she is unphased, saying that we’ll all just have to cross train to pick up the slack until a new person can be hired. I’m responding with my feet and looking for other work, but I’m curious how common this is and how it has played out for others. Is leadership trying to get rid of employees that they don’t favor? Hiring new employees at the higher rate is no problem for them and it just seems fishy.

I gruaduated with BS in Accounting in 2020, since then all firms require some sort of experience to hire me, all other applicants have at least one year experience in accounting, I don't, 4 years passed, I worked side jobs like wellness coach and so forth, no company has hired me.
I have kids so I need something with pay. I can't do anything for free. so if no one hires anyone with no experience or unless they know them, how can a person like who knows no one in the field nor have experience in accounting find a job and start building a career? note that I graduated with HONOR meaning I studied my a** and graduated with all A pluses.. but what's the point?? Can someone help me? I need a remote job to start with as well.
