About a month ago, I created an LLC for myself. I did this for tax and accounting purposes -- I became a contractor during the transition after the company for which I worked was sold.
Though I have been successfully interviewed by recruiters, I am excited to try this in a healthy headspace.
For the past month, I have monitored every dollar of our spending closely, I have talked to former clients and colleagues, I talked to my therapist, and I believe that I can do this.
My contract ends this week, so I am officially launching. I am excited and terrified.

I am working in an environment where I’m not utilizing my skills or growing.
This is making me rethink this position. I have over 36 years of administrative experience with the last several years at executive level. I have my bachelor’s degree in business administration and accounting. I want to do something else, but find that people who say let’s talk or say they’ll help don’t keep their word. I learned a while ago that I have to advocate for myself and my goals. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt when others don’t come thru.
If I want to shift to contract analyst or acquisitions, is there anyone here that can provide suggestions on what I need to do to get exposure?

Struggling to stay positive.
I have been out of work since the beginning of July. I have never been without a job for longer than a month and that was very early on in my career. I know to tailor my resume to each application but I feel like I am not getting through the ATS like I should. I am reaching out to people via LinkedIn who work at the companies and still nothing. I am so discouraged and I don't see how this will get any better with the projected job market for 2024. What else can I do?

My daughter accepted a job offer, her first since graduating college.
It's an entry level position at an university. After she accepted, she realized the parking pass she has the opportunity to purchase is more expensive than she realized.
I would appreciate advice on how to go back to them and ask for more money to make up for the significant parking cost.

Would you put this on your resume?
I left a job at a nonprofit in 2022 because the expectations of the job, as well as the way the organization was structured, made it impossible to actually work towards the mission. I laid out all of my concerns with the position when I left and let them know that was the reason I was leaving. I shared with them that the current structure was not set up for success.
After I left, they changed the structure of the whole organization, based on what I suggested. They eliminated the position that I had - because it wasn't working - and created three new roles, each with separate and distinct responsibilities. Before, we had three staff with identical job descriptions, responsible for different territories. I told them it was impossible to succeed that way, in this particular organization. Now on their socials they appear to be flourishing with this new format. Would you put the fact that they restructured based on your input on your resume?

Has anyone gone through a vocational evaluation process where they try to determine whether you are underemployed?
