I had a second round interview on 7/6 for a job that I really want. Immediately after the interview, I sent a thank you email to the two women from the department that I interviewed with.
After not hearing anything for two weeks, I followed up with HR on 7/19 asking for an update and when to expect to hear a decision. She said "my understanding is the team will be making a decision this week. I'll be in touch as soon as I have an update."
I expected to hear the decision last week since that's what she said, but it is now 7/27 and I still haven't heard anything.
When should I follow up with HR again? I don't want to be annoying especially since she said that she would be in touch as soon as she had an update. Or should I try to send a follow up to the two women who interviewed me? Not knowing is eating me alive and I really just want to know at this point so I could move on.
I also saw today that the role was just taken down on their website. I'm not sure if that's a bad sign.

Real Estate Internship
I am a college student, and I am looking for a real estate internship. I have the passion to learn more about the industry. I am majoring in engineering, but I think it will be great to explore both avenues. I love engineering, but I also think I need to dive deep into it since I am very passionate about real estate. I would appreciate it if anyone could direct me to any real estate internships or connect me with others who know about them.

It's been 9 months since I was laid off from my job.
I had worked for my last employer for about a year (after being unemployed for 2 years due to pandemic layoffs). I don't lack experience, I have about 15 years in my industry. Now I'm back in the unemployment cycle - I've been looking and applying for jobs, had some "networking" chats, and only 2 interviews. To keep busy I've been doing some volunteer work and teaching music part-time, which doesn't pay the bills but gives me some spending money.
At this point, I don't know how much longer my job search will take or what I should do. Applying to jobs in my field has resulted in no responses. Applying to jobs outside my field has resulted in no responses. Applying to jobs above my previous role has resulted in rejection emails that I don't have the experience the employer wants in a candidate. Applying for jobs below my previous role has resulted in no responses. I've spoken with career coaches and people who are working, and I'm told to keep trying. I'm fortunate to have the time now to practice my musicianship as it gives me something to do, but at some point, I need to start earning money again and soon.

I’m looking for an easy to read spreadsheet to track credit card expenses.
Pretty much just want to be able to break them down in categories without having to label everything individually. Example: office supplies(not what was bought), building utilities (not all listed separately) misc. expenses etc. Something that is easy for someone not very computer literate to read.

I am currently unemployed (a month and a half so far) and seeking a job in an accounting/financing/office field. I’ve been offered a position somewhere that would pay me decently well and fairly close to where I live. It would be great skill set wise with room for growth.
The only problem is that I’m not a fan of 40 hour workweeks, and this job is an 8-5 M-F. I’ve worked 40 hour weeks before and I felt miserable and guilty that I couldn’t spend times with my friends, family, and partner. I felt like all I did was work and had no time for myself. I also have a physical disability that, while it doesn’t stop me from working, completely drains me at the end of a working day. In my previous 9-5 job, I would be asleep by 7 pm and sleep 10+ hours easily.
I asked this company if I could have slightly less hours or a four day workweek and I was told it’s not possible. The company is a reputable state-wide business that I would be happy to work for, but those hours are making me have second thoughts. Any advice?

I'm looking to connect with a recruiter that's looking for a Mid-Level to director candidate.
I have over 15 years of leadership and strategy building experience. Looking for salary 90K - 120. I keep getting calls from companies that know I'm over qualified for. So I need to connect with someone that can weed out the spam.

I was recently terminated from Playing for a Church As A Musician, but was asked stay until they found someone else to replace me. I chose to not ever remain in that Particular atmosphere of denounced ongoing rejection. Yes the pay was somewhat ok, but it wasn't worth my Peace Of Mind, although I did post for other employment on Facebook, just for backup only,not with an intention to leave that Particular place of employment.,but as I already stated earlier, all of that negatively wasn't worth my Peace of Mind. Yes I still Love every one at that former Particular place of employment, whereas I did post on the group me page of that Particular former place of employment, after Praying and seeking GOD of what to say, I never mentioned my termination, but told each and every member of that Particular Congregation that I was no longer there due to lots of negative contentions. Sometimes a Person has to do what is necessary for the having of Peace of Mind, which can't be bought, nor negotiated. So I highly suggest that Sometimes when we seem to be at our worst of times,just remember that better times,and better days are ahead. So continue to be encouraged and always remember to Keep GOD 1st, in your lives, and things will always work out for the Good...
