My boss is not a true leader…

How do you handle your own boss who thinks you went behind their back to your own HR director? They tell you they don’t like it but you wanted another HR opinion on a topic and now they are upset about the entire situation.

Looking for referrals.

Boyfriend just got a reject from AWS :( I referred him and personally, I think they marked him as overqualified for the role he was applying to because he used my exact template to interview but was a military officer in addition to 5ish years of tech sales experience.

Looking for companies that values vets (even ones more than 18 months out from their discharge) hiring for jr sales, inside sales, or account manager/ client success.

I am struggling with the fact that I have 13 years of HR experience in one capacity or another, along with a bachelors degree and my PHR designation yet companies say “I’m not qualified or they ghost me when I apply for HR openings. I am experienced in all aspects of HR. How are people with little to no experience coming right out of college obtaining higher level roles than I have currently? It makes my passion for the field just go away.

A month ago I received my annual review/ merit increase, which was a little higher than the 3% for market adjustment. I’m still underpaid and not happy. I accepted the review at the time because I needed time to digest it. I still haven’t had a 1:1 with her yet but plan to ask when we do. Is it too late to ask? Any tips for asking for a raise? She’s also giving me more responsibility, more work, having me take more ownership over things her and someone else used to. Im so nervous about asking

Need some help regarding sales quotas. Can management increase your quota solely because you’re doing well and exceeding it? I’ve been here less than a year, and have since established my capabilities with sales, and my numbers now put me in at number 3 highest selling sales rep of the entire company. My quota has now been changed 3 times since being here, with the latest increase being a jump of 2x what my previous quota was, just because I had a good month. Is this normal/fair?

Hi folks. I'm a Senior Account Manager at Microsoft, 10 YOE working with board level stakeholders to onboard workloads. AWS approached me for a Customer Solutions Manager role which is exactly what I do for Microsoft. The hiring manager sent a team member who turned my interview into a technical deep dive. I'm not a Cloud Solutions Architect! Question... Is it normal for AWS to send the tech police to non tech interviews? The guy might as well been a robot.

I think one of the underrated reasons the market is trading is algorithms and sentiment analysis. People say they’ve never seen a market like this which is true but tech plays a bigger role than we expect. Many firms literally pick up Bloomberg terminal headlines and electronically buy or sell as a result. This creates higher volume in the market and leads to higher equity prices

Hi guys.

I have seen some persons pivot from a tax manager/partner role to a C Suite level role (one went from Senior Tax Manager to CEO of a SMB; one went from Tax Partner to starting her own CFO outsourcing business; and one went from M&A Tax Manager at Big 4 to Finance Director, then CFO of a large corp).

I'm done 4 years in public in audit & tax. But I'm wondering what in their tax experience prepared them for those roles.
