This is beautiful. I love that this trip let your friends and family support your writing in a tangible way.

On Getting Feedback After a Job Rejection

I don't answer that question from candidates. If they're not qualified they don't make it to interviews, and if they don't get the job 9 times out of 10 it's personality fit with the particular hiring team. That's not easy to say and not constructive to hear.

On Everything About Being An Assistant Is Awful

Here in finance, at least at my firm, career administrative assistants are incredibly skilled, well-paid, given full benefits, deeply appreciated and valued, and have great if somewhat flat career mobility options (they can switch industries or teams but there is a cap to salary/job growth). Most are parents whose benefits, salary, and 9-to-5 work hours suit their family's needs. Many corporate real estate, law, accounting, and consulting firms operate the same way. The old guard of Wall Street execs are retiring, and with them the practice of having your admin run your personal life. I've only encountered extremely competent career admins in my years in finance so far.

On Monday Check-in

@Marille I always recommend support groups. Every group and every meeting is different, but in my experience they have been so wonderful for meeting/forging relationships with peers. I didn't think I needed to go, but I tried one anyway, and I've healed and felt heard and exercised more empathy than I could ever imagine. < Steps down from soapbox >
