On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Should you be searching for a new job when you're in extended treatment for a serious medical issue? Is it fair to your current or potential future employer?
  • After time off from your relationship to finish grad school, you're back with your significant other. But how can you get over the retroactive jealousy you feel?
  • When you're the parent of a junior high schooler, how can you create opportunities for your kid to build social skills with adults?
  • When your mentally ill mother gave your estranged sister her house -- from which she was then kicked out -- do you have a legal claim to at least part of that house?
  • How do you retain clients -- without bashing your old employer -- when it's time to move on to a job that will be a better fit in your small, gossipy industry?
  • Do you take on a higher paying, riskier job with a long commute to boost your debt repayments, or stay where you are where the growth is slow but more secure?
  • You fired one contractor for shoddy remodeling work and had to hire others to fix it. What are your legal obligations regarding unfinished payment and equipment left behind?
  • What can you do to keep an intrusive, abusive ex out of your life forever -- especially when they move into your house and claim squatter's rights when you try to kick them out?
  • Life Pro Tip: If you're a student planning your career, look up postings for your entry-level dream job, find the skills and qualifications you'll need, then work backwards from there.
  • Recommendation of the Week: I Am Mother
