Loved jumping rope as a kid, and I just stumbled on one at my parent's. So... WFH hack! Keep a jump rope next to your desk. It's a perfect 2 minute (or more) activity and/or distraction.

I have a wonderful coworker (Supervisor) that I have worked with for 2 years.
She is a hard worker, never calls in and always goes above and beyond to get the job done. She has amazing performance reviews and has never had an issue with management or other employees.
Our company requires a background check before an employee can start. Apparently our old General Manager did not process her background check and just allowed her to start. She had a run in with the law in 2011 and was convicted in 2018. Once she was allowed to work she assumed the company didn't care about the conviction. There was not a question asking "have you ever been convicted of a felony", so she did not falsify any information. She turned her paperwork in like she was supposed to.
Fast-forward to the current day.... the company realized that her background was never processed and she is now awaiting the results. Her fear is that the background check could cause her to lose her job.
Isn't it the companies responsibility to make sure all of the employees background checks are processed? Should the burden fall back on the employee? ANY advice for her would be helpful.

I would like to rebuild my work confidence and resume my professional experience, but struggle with imposter syndrome and doubts about my abilities and expertise.
I am in my mid-late 20s and I get constant anxiety attacks and panic regarding my career, I recently lived and worked abroad (The UK), but returned back home due to mental health reasons (mainly work related). I have never experienced this and I would like to get back on track and resume my career building as I have always been a great employee and professional and I enjoy working. I would like to return to the UK (I am an EU national and have rights to reside and work there as I have permanent settled status), but I experience constant doubts regarding my skills, expertise and I was wondering if anyone had any advice, or has been in a similar situation, where they doubt their abilities and have a hard time finding how to retrieve their work confidence and believe in their value as a professional again.

I used a word in the wrong context in a meeting and the sentence didn’t make sense .
I’m literally embarrassed wondering what others are thinking about me after this meeting, especially my bosses . I was stumbling on words and didn’t make sense .
I have some health issues and experience severe Brain fog fr time to time . I can go from speaking eloquently to sounding like I never attended high school . They don’t know this of course and part of my job is driving project meetings so I’m concerned , but perhaps over analyzing
should I be worried or just move on and hope they forget lol ????

My Coworker is Leaving....
Hi Friends! I lost my job in February, got a new job in March that I love ( great people, leadership, etc.) but my coworker who just recently got her masters is leaving. I am super excited for her, but super sad that she is leaving me. Her role is more intense, and she has been coaching/showing me how to do things, so when she leaves nothing will be left behind. Her role will be open, and I told her I was planning on applying for her role. Even though I am 2 months in, I feel I have done everything she does in previous roles ( the other admins here do not even do Power points for the executives), etc. She told me she is going to make it known that I want to take the job, but I also don't want to step on toes of people who have been here longer!
Do I take the plunge and apply??

I am really struggling now. Its been a whole year and a half applying to jobs and I have quite literally gotten nowhere. Only one interview which put me on a reserve list.
I am at my wits end. I can't handle all these rejections without getting feedback to understand where I am even remotely going wrong. I've applied to over 500 jobs now and just nothing (I would appreciate it kindly if you please don't say 500 is impossible, it is). I've quantified and tailored, kept it short and to the point with use of bullet points with a summary.
I have no option but to keep going but I'm about to become homeless (currently sofa surfing) but I would love some guidance - what did you do to even get an interview? Could someone kindly review my resume? Any thoughts aprreciated
