Like everyone said, the rounding up is not much of a big deal as the difference is relatively small. However, the bigger concern here is, the fact that we are all willing to provide a copy of a confidential document such as a payslip. Sharing payslips to hiring teams has been a widespread practice, but that doesn't necessarily make it right. You may politely refuse due to code of conduct and confidentiality concerns. You may even challenge the hiring team if they normally allow their employees sharing their payslip (am almost certain they would not want either). So rather than payslip, provide other means of proof like tax computation or salary credit bank statement. The hiring manager may even add integrity points to you for doing that :)

Hey! That was the same question I asked myself not too long ago. I think it mainly depends on your interest. I was interested in Growth Hacking, Tech and also Econs and Finance. From there you can go on and see where your area of interest lies and the skills required to get there. Here's an article with a compilation of courses and academies that can help. https://blog.seedly.sg/degree-jobs-practical-ways/ Cheers!!

Be honest. You can start off by asking if you can reply by Thursday, say, at 3 pm. They probably won't bother asking why if they are readily agreeable. By then you have finished your interview on Thursday and can guess whether you will like or be accepted by this alternate employer.

If you're in Quality Assurance and the like, a Lean Six Sigma will help you stand apart from those who don't. However, practical experience counts for more when you are applying for jobs, so don't be too fixated on the certification. Also, if you are going to get it, go all the way to black at least, to show that you are serious on persuing a specialized skill set in this area.

! I believe that many here working in high-stress jobs can relate to this! Personally, I have experienced it and have taken stress home, so much so that my loved ones can feel the tension once I get back from work, or meet them for dinner. - Why spread that negativity? What I have realised over time is to be kind to yourself and your loved ones. One useful way to do this is to constantly remind yourself that if work is already causing negativity in your life, it does not make sense for you to further spread that negativity to family. Of course, it helps if family members can identify that the reason why you are cold is not because of them, but because you are affected at work. - Compartmentalize. Some people are better at this than others. Some could even argue that men are better at it than women. Underlying this is basically the awareness that work is work, and your non-work relationships should be kept separate. - Get another perspective. Be open with your family members. It could even be helpful for you to talk to them about work issues in some cases - I find that some of my colleagues unwind by telling their spouses about their issues at work. Sometimes, it is very useful to have an alternate perspective on the issue. You might find that an issue that feels very troubling to you might actually not be when you consider it from another point of view. Underpinning all of this, is that your work is not your life . Allowing your job to affect your mood for weekends is probably not the way to go. Imagine if you're 80 and you look back on your life realizing you spent your weekends in misery because of that job/annoying boss/political colleagues - not such a great life to look back on, isn't it? Treasure your time :)

You absolutely should. Freelancers of a high professional operational level would typically have very specific forms that show that they've been paid so much for their work. You have to compile these, show dates and demonstrate that you're worth that much. I think a better way to negotiate what is basically a 33% raise, is to really show how much value you've brought to the startup. Talk to your boss about how things have changed for the work you've done and you'll have a better negotiating position.

I will always choose passion over income. Passion means your life is a bit more exciting. Do note that at your age, your idea of what sector/topic/degree/demand may be different from reality though. For example, I thought Business degree is useful, fun and full of interesting people. After finishing my studies, I found that business is not as fun as I thought. Really different perspective after entering it.

I honestly believe you have till 35 to figure it out. As long as during that time you keep searching instead of bumming around and you can be independent, keep finding that dream job. I'm sure at 24 you probably have very little commitments if any, and probably don't have dependents or major liabilities. Your career will take up more years than you have been alive, better make sure you enjoy it. Build skills, make connections, broaden your horizons, and try not to turn down opportunities along the way.

I would look at the job prospects and the team unless the lower pay job is paying significantly less. Given that you are saving for the upcoming wedding and family expenses, you should probably be looking at a job that 1) Allows you to expand your scope and rise up the ranks 2) Reasonable pay increment as you contribute more value 3) Longevity. You don't want to find yourself unemployed in the midst of having a baby and servicing your mortgage. Additionally, what is your future spouse's earning power, and how much flexibility does it give you in your job?
