Offered consultant contract, can I lose severance payments?
My previous company is supposed to pay me 12 weeks of severance and even though it's been over 13 weeks that I have been laid off there are still 3 remaining payment cycles due to the processing by payroll, x number of days after executing the separation agreement etc. In the contract it states that if I obtain new work by the same corporate parent, than my severance payments will cease. I have been offered a freelance position by a sister company where I used to work to be paid hourly for hours worked. If the contract is dated now but payment wouldn't begin until later this month or even next month, would my severance payments be in jeopardy? Don't want to lose my money!

What is the SNARKY STUFF that is being posted here?
There was a thread yesterday that exploded into a fireball of hate, it was about a woman who's 29 weeks pregnant, and not sure she'll return after maternity leave.
I'm glad to see that many comments were deleted by admins, but my GAWD, the hate and snark and foul language that was running rampant is HURTING our community.
Please, everyone, think TWICE before you click "post" on these replies.

I am an executive in the health and wellness space looking for the next move in my career.
My expertise is in program development and execution, health coaching, strategic planning, community building, and partnership development.
Currently, I serve as the Co-Founder and Senior Director of Community Engagement at We Are Here, an AI-driven platform ensuring equitable access to resources for those impacted by cancer.
I am looking to remain in the health and wellness space. I get particularly excited about missions disrupting our current healthcare landscape and organizations committed to health equity.
If anyone has organizations and/or individuals in mind that are hiring or would be beneficial for me to speak with, can you let me know?
Thank you so much!

Culture of the VA?
I just got an email for an interview for an leadership/administrative role at the VA! My skills/experience seem like a match, but I'm a bit concerned about culture. My impression (based on little to nothing) is that the culture would be very structured, hierarchical, and formal. Has anyone made this transition? Any experiences to share? Questions specific to the VA I should ask? (I'm also reaching out to my local network to see if I can find folks to talk to.)

What are some good questions to ask in an interview?
Since interviews are a 2 way street, what other questions can I ask the person who is interviewing me? My go to questions are what is the company culture like, what would my day to day be like, are there any growth opportunities, what benefits do you offer. What are some other good questions that I can ask to stand out?
