I just found out this week that half of my job is being given to someone else in the organization.

My boss swears I'm not going anywhere, but I honestly don't see why they would keep me around full time at this point. I found a job online (virtual job) that I really think I want. It's with a huge organization and I'm sure my resume looks like 100s of others they see for the position. I sent an email to someone in the organization who is in a leadership position in the same department the job is open in. I told her I wanted to introduce myself and didn't want to just be another resume. She thanked me but quickly stated the hiring manager will be in touch if they want to pursue talking to me. I took the hint - she doesn't want me contacting her. Any other ideas on how to stand out among other applicants? I've connected with several individuals from the organization on LinkedIn, but I'm hesitant to reach out to them. All I know is I see a job loss in the near future and I want to move on. Thanks for any tips and advice!

Does checking have or had a disability impact you negatively?
I had cancer previously but am currently cancer free. As a job seeker, when filling out the application, I have been checking yes on the application that I have or have had a disability previously. It looks like this is just some sort of designation that each company can use to say they employ a certain % of people that have had or currently have disabilities. However, I’m curious, does anyone have insight on this question. Could it be used by employers to deselect from consideration? Will this information be shared with a hiring manager within the company? Thanks!!

I've been with my company for 3 years and I LOVE my job! I've taken on many new projects and volunteered for extra duties. My review last month was very positive but the problem is the salary increase level. Last year, with also a very positive review, the increase was 2%. This year it was 2.5%. With the rate of inflation let alone my performance, this is disappointing. Our company is rather transparent about financials so I do not think this is a budgetary concern. My suggestions that my position be reviewed for a "bump" since my responsibilities are at a higher level than when I began and assumed from those at the next level up have resulted in brief conversations but not taken seriously. What coiuld be the issue and how do I move up? What is a good next step in addressing these concerns?

Hi, does anyone know how to adjust into an in office 9-6 job whilst keeping up with good/healthy habits i.e.
exercising, yoga/meditation, at least 7hrs of sleep, healthy meals? I've been trying and my methods seem a bit off with my schedule, not having enough time and feeling tired.
Just checking if any other professional has a different method I could try out.
In my mid 20s, no kids, don't party at all (I just moved so no friends yet lol) just for reference

3rd round interviews
I have been on several interviews each reaching the third round stage for Executive Assistant roles. My feedback has been excellent, but then they pass on me. I'm not sure if I'm asking the right questions, or if this market is just really challenging. Has this been happening to anyone else, and do you have any recommendations? This has really been a blow to me during my search.

Long story short
I got a job way below my pay range and experience because I was laid off. I’ve been working there for 7 months and I’m miserable. I hate the job, my tasks, everything is so manual. I can’t take it. I find myself procrastinating a lot, and not wanting to do the work. ?
I really think I’m depressed ?
