I'm the one who was fired from a job seven weeks after starting. I saw today they reposted my job. I feel very depressed and like I'm going thru the mourning process again. How do I move on?

Has anyone worked with “Executive Career Upgrades” for their next opportunity? Is it worth it? I came across their profile through an advertisement. Any feedback is welcome, Thank you.

I'm struggling with asking for reimbursement I am properly owed.
I work with a very small non-profit. We don't have a corporate credit card, and probably never will. There is plenty of money in the budget for me to be reimbursed for incidental expenses on a monthly basis. I have all documentation and never spend outside what is allowed. And yet somehow, I feel guilty every time I submit expenses. It leaves me feeling almost paralyzed for no legitimate reason. Any ideas?

Has anyone been successful in advocating for neutral paid parental leave policies regardless of whether the employee is the birthing parent, adoptive parent, "primary" parent/caregiver or gender at their employer or their partner/spouses employer?
I'm looking for resources and successful case studies/examples of implementing this change.

Seasoned EA here that’s been out of work since March. I’m burned out from the profession as a whole because of toxic executives, crappy office environments, or being significantly underpaid compared to other EAs I’ve worked with (the good ol’ discrimination trope).
I want to transition out to operations. I thought a lot of my strong skills would be transferable, but so many of these jobs need folks with backgrounds in something super specific that I’ve never been exposed to (industry, special software, years in the field).
One interview I had said my resume was great but I lacked financial reporting (a task not required for an EA, so never exposed to it). In the mean time, EA interviews aren’t going well because they feel I’ll become bored once they see the work I’ve done on my resume.
I just feel like I’ve reached a brick wall in how to properly elevate myself.
I’m venting, but also fishing for advice. Thank you for my TED Talk.

Where is the best place to look for a job, in your opinion?
I have been using all the job boards and going directly through company sites and I am still having trouble getting someone to actually read my resume/application. I am constantly getting ghosted or rejected for jobs I am qualified for.

I just had a Monthly Review Meeting with my Director at the company I've been working at as a Contract employee for almost 6 months and she said she wants to extend my contract for another month but in the meantime she will be posting my position as a Full time, permanent position (which consists of helping out 5-6 different departments) as soon as it is approved.
I did ask her if it would be possible for me to telework 1-2 days a week on the days that everyone is in the office since there is an online software to answer the phones for the front desk and she told me the position im doing temporary work for is not eligible for telework & that the phone software is "for emergency use only." Also, i mentioned to her that the staffing agency i work for initially told me that i would be able to telework TWICE A WEEK. Its funny how everyone can telework besides me.
I know I'm going to get a phone call from the Recruiter at my staffing agency tomorrow asking me if I want to renew my contract and I really don't want to because I have NO work life balance, suffer from anxiety, am extremely burnt out and am tired of having to drop everything I'm doing at work to cover the phones at the front desk EVERYDAY while everyone else at my job gets to telework 2-3 days a week and I'm forbidden to do so. In addition, the company I'm working for REFUSES to give me an increase in pay ever since I took on multiple duties in different departments. Would it be wrong if I told my Recruiter/Contact person at the agency I work for that "I am no longer Interested in working where I work at now and that I would like to be reassigned to work someone else thT is a better fit for me?" I CANT TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!!?????
