Companies promote women but sometimes do promote less competent women while there are more competent women that are overlooked.

As Promoting Gender diversity is in vogue and all companies have an agenda to promote women and a KRA for the men leaders to ensure that they promote a certain amount of women to leadership pronto :). And due to this.... This is interesting, if not majority but quite commonplace too, that I see less competent women, who hardly know much get promoted, put on a leadership track vis a vis more competent women.
It’s ensured that women who dumb it down are successful and meet their goals without putting much hard work. The women who dumb it down, (and I think it’s a great strategy), are sweet and obedient are universally loved and fawned on by the men in leadership ; have lot of sympathy as some can be knight in shining armour for the helpless damsel in distress. While women who are competent, strong, work hard, assertive, speak up( some dumb it down and that’s a great strategy) .... are not preferred or promoted as they are seen as a threat and a b....! So is playing dumb a good strategy to get ahead? When one is a leader then one can go ahead and show how smart and assertive they are, in any case once a leader not much is needed in the trenches which needs competence and can then stop playing dumb...food for thought!!!

Please share your success networking stories - if you found a job through networking how did you do it?
How many people did you call? Did you find contacts on LinkedIn and approach?
I am having hard time with it. I was given notice and emailed/ texted people just to connect and talked. Very few even responded. I know it is a numbers game, but it is so lonely and discouraging - like begging for a job...
But they say it is still more effective than applying on the web.

I saw how my colleagues were freaking out and then I heard about this concept. So I did what I thought was quietly quitting - I just did the minimum required of me. Then we got our monthly numbers and I was ahead of plan!
Give it a shot!

Once someone signs an offer letter, is it generally okay to give notice to your present employer?
(Basically, it's a contract, yes?)

Is it discrimination to let the oldest employee work all nights and weekends when a younger inexperienced person is taken into a position?
We did have fair scheduling until this person came into the group, she says she can not get a baby sitter. So another employee and myself have all the nights, except one. He gets a couple of days during the week, I sometimes get one on the weekend?

Searching the internet
I was looking through job postings that are in my field just to see what's out there and I'm finding an increasing number of employers requiring a master's degree and at least 5 years of experience with salaries in the 40k range...you have got to be kidding me.
This isn't so much about me but I find that offensive. A master's degree to be paid less than the national average in the US...got it. I'm also shocked because when I started in this field about 2 years ago in an entry-level position with a bachelor's degree that was the salary range with the requirements being a bachelor's degree in a related field and no experience with the specific job required but other general skills related to it. I feel I got extremely lucky but I'm also wondering if you can move up salary-wise in this field with experience alone.
The way the goalposts are constantly being moved is outrageous.
