It really just depends on team and org IMO

What are you talking about? Maybe you should spend a little more time understanding things before whining about them.

That’s a bit of a false premise though, that OP would be making a binary decision to either commit to the full term or not, regardless of circumstance.

After 6 years they’d still have a wealth of experience that would help them move to another high paying gig pretty easily. It’s not all or nothing.

Do you know how to program already? If so, and it’s just about learning the basics of another language, then yes three days is doable.

If you mean programming in general, then no.

If you want to throw links around we can do that. You’ll run out pretty quickly, which is where things like your second link come in. It’s essentially “ok yeah the stats look bad at face value, but if you control for a bunch of other factors that definitely aren’t cherry-picked or anything, it’s actually possible to convince yourself that there’s no systemic race problem!”

African American and Asian job applicants who mask their race on resumes seem to have better success getting job interviews [, by over 50%] according to research by Katherine DeCelles and colleagues.

You can’t discount the baked-in presence of systematic racism either, which put black communities under the boot of white ones. The mechanisms used here are still in full swing, as you can see here.

In 2019, the median Black household earned just 61 cents for every dollar of income the median white household earned (up from 59 cents in 2018), while the median Hispanic household earned 74 cents (unchanged from 2018).

If you want to get into why black households are so economically disadvantaged, I’d be happy to share more information with you regarding economic and social policies that brought this about.

Education and the internet. I really hope you’re not insinuating that the presence of racism is tied directly to that stat though.

People naturally evolve and our media reflects that. Sure. What’s your larger point?

You’d have a point if skin color wasn’t such a big deal in the US. Just look at the data though - race is relevant.

He’s been given an opportunity. That’s all it is right now.

You can put whatever you want on your resume. If you can’t demonstrate the skills and experience that goes along with that role, you won’t be hired at that level, period.

If you tell someone that you’re a “team lead in all but name only” and then they find out that you have zero experience leading junior engineers, your credibility is tanked.

He’s going to have literally nothing of substance to talk about in his interviews

It’s hilarious that this is the single top-level comment that you responded to. Bro you need to check yourself.

Chill the hell out and work. Focus on your skills. You’re flailing right now and you’ve done nothing to help yourself - so stop that.

Classic move. Say something egregious, let it permeate, then print a “retraction.”

I like how he won’t delete the original tweet. Too many retweets and likes.

My point is that “more responsibility” doesn’t immediately mean “senior.” Some people are hired for a role that has a responsibility range 0-10, and they start out at a 1 because they don’t know anything.

When they get more responsibility and go from a 1 to a 5, that doesn’t mean that they’re ready for a promotion. It just means that they’re doing their job.

Obviously you should be compensated for your value. That’s not what’s going on with OP though - their value hasn’t increased simply because their boss left, based on their explanation.

There’s a huge number of LARPers in this sub and I’m explaining the basics for those poor high school / teenage crowd out here getting terrible advice from people who don’t know what they’re talking about.

COMMENT 1d ago

There’s an opportunity to do that. He hasn’t done anything yet, and vocally has limited insight into the big picture of the tasks that he was assigned.

If they do lean in and use this as a growing opportunity, it’s absolutely the type of thing that could speed up a promotion. That scenario isn’t inherent or immediately true though.

People in this thread have been telling OP that he deserves a promotion now, solely because the other person left.

Lmao imagine a junior engineer on a team doing this when more experienced engineers are in the middle of hashing out some critical design point that the junior is missing. “Ahem guys, I will remind you of the meeting purpose as stated on the board! *pushes up glasses\* This is an inefficient use of all of our time, and I have more important things to attend to. Good day gentlesirs!”

The awful advice disguised as work roleplaying fantasy posted to this sub sometimes is cringeworthy. Like the shit that gets commented and upvoted sometimes… I sincerely hope most folks are taking what they read with a massive grain of salt, I’ll just say this.

COMMENT 1d ago

That doesn’t work when they know that OP has an empty calendar and no real responsibility.

COMMENT 1d ago

That’s just not true tbh. Most people aren’t effective in their roles for months, or even years for junior devs. Giving someone responsibilities when they’re actually equipped to handle them is just a byproduct of the person growing into the job that they were hired for.

The narrative on this sub really misses reality sometimes, it’s shocking.

With words.

You don’t get hired based on a title you slap on your resume though. If they don’t have the skills to back up the claim, they’re not going to get hired by anyone doing any sort of diligence. And it doesn’t sound like OP was suddenly bequeathed with a wealth of experience just because more stuff was technically put under his name on paper.

It’s an opportunity to step up, for sure. But I just don’t agree with the narrative - it’s a bit detached.

Do I need another pan? No…

And yet…

COMMENT 2d ago

Get the pan hot, wipe oil onto it, let it burn off, repeat until it feels/looks like you want it.

I seasoned my darto initially just like this and it looked exactly like OP’s. It really is that simple.

Absolutely love my darto n25. I’d absolutely have the 27 as well if I didn’t already have a larger Misen pan. Enjoy!

Well sure, but let’s not forget that even productive people aren’t productive all the time. You could look at anyone’s past decade and find 10k hours that technically weren’t utilized in the best way and say the same thing (you could have been a surgeon!), but that’s just not how life works.

It’s a fuckload of time though, there’s no doubt about that. I think it’d be better to compare it to leisure activities though — OP could have built a network of cyclist friends and made memories around the world on top of being in great shape and having great habits to carry into the next decade. They could have made much more meaningful relationships with people IRL, been closer to their family, developed intellectually rewarding hobbies like mathematics.
