Am I being too sensitive? Interviewed for a Corporate Strategy Manager position at a F50 today and one of the ladies was a White Woman. We get through the interviews and I ask her about the culture. She then proceeded to tell me how it’s really good and even have programs to provide consulting services to NPO that serves impoverished minorities communities and my views and life experiences would definitely bring a good perspective. It honestly made me a little uncomfortable about their culture.

Have two different company job interviews atm. One I’m meeting CMO on Monday as a final round after meeting the whole team and second I’ve just had a first conversation with the hiring manager and they want me to meet rest of the team, etc. 2nd company I’m more interested in but earlier in interview process. Any tips on how to delay 1st company if they make me an offer?

Had a final round interview (3 1-on-1s and one panel presentation) with a healthcare marketing company today for a manager position. Was asked about why I’ve left previous jobs every 1.5-2 years and how they could know that I would stay longer this time. I addressed my past and why this new position interested me, but wondering how others have dealt with this question? The way the question was positioned rubbed me the wrong way but I’d decided to just see how far I could get in the process.

Would you take a manager role when exiting with <2 YOE? Backstory: I gave a high salary range for a company I was interviewing with and during negotiation they couldn’t hit it at the senior associate band so they offered a manager title instead. I turned it down because I thought it’d be foolish and short sighted to take a role like that so early in my career. Interested in hearing other thoughts and personal experiences!

Hello fellow account folks! Hoping to get your advice on this 🙏🏻 I’ve been asked by a hiring manager to submit a separate portfolio on top of my CV. Honestly I’ve never really done that for my past interviews, seeing my ‘portfolio’ usually makes up my CV. Was wondering if there’s a good platform/ website that you’ve used to house your portfolio? Or is there any tips on this? Thank you!

When do you stop interviewing after getting a verbal offer that you verbally accepted (it may not be the dream job but checks right boxes—comp, benefits, good company), but you haven’t received the formal offer letter? Two other companies want to move me forward in the interview process. I already told one that I’ve received an offer and they are trying to move up an interview with the hiring manager. The other knew I was expecting an offer and just asked if I can do a 2nd interview this week.

So I have been interviewing/ got an offer last week. We’ve been going back and forth negotiating ( Took about a week to talk to my family, review my noncompete) Spoke to them yesterday, suggested a start date of Jan 1, which I feel is fair considering the holidays, plus offloading a team. I’m a manager at a large company, and certainly didn’t want to leave my team at year end. They emailed me yesterday saying they want me to start 2 weeks from Monday. That’s not even 2 weeks. What do I do?

Hi fam, I need some advice. I have an offer to leave consulting to go to a “startup” I’m really excited about.

No room to negotiate TC so that’s off the table. I’ve interviewed for a few FAANG roles (which didn’t work out for a mix of reasons) with TC much higher than...
