If there are any shops in Chicago looking for an ACD AD, I’d very much appreciate getting my work in front of your eyeballs and taking you (Recruiter, CD and higher) out to lunch or coffee to talk.
I currently work for a not for profit in Australia, but have recently realised there is no room for career progression at my organisation (I was hired as an admin and was promoted to TA within two months but that's about as far as this organisation can take me). I have no qualifications in HR but was hoping my experience would get me a position in another company with growth opportunity.
What would be the best way to make a move?
If you really don't like an idea, don't present it, because you'll probably end up having to make it.
I'm wondering if anyone has implemented a performance management system where individuals are positioned to their strengths and evaluated and rewarded for them as opposed to a system that encourages employees to stretch across multiple areas and then ding them for weaknesses.
For example, current system expects client service, talent management and sales. If you don't sell, then you're not as good as someone who does all 3. But what if your strength is talent and we could leverage that.
What are some tangible goals I can discuss with my manger during our 1:1’s? Curious to hear what other people’s goals in tech sales are. Had anyone done a roadmap on career development ?

LinkedIn - What do people think of people connecting but then either not messaging or not messaging back? Has it become a connection collecting game? (You connect for a reason right?)
Ok I have an interview tomorrow and like to be prepared so I have a notebook where I’ve written relevant experiences and accomplishments. Would it look unprofessional to being my notes and reference them doing the interview? I can get so nervous and lose my train of thought so I just feel this will help keep my answers on track and focused on relevant information.
What are the little things that keep you going nowadays?
Mine: When my mom texts me photos of my dog 😅🐶
Has anyone bought/ done the HRCI Certificate in Diversity and Inclusion in HR Management? I already have my PHR, but I’m looking to gain more knowledge/skills and beef up my resume. Is it worth doing? The course is $239 and you get 12 Recert credits with it.
I still don’t know what Salesforce does
Does anyone know if Fivetran is doing a freeze on the hiring process?
Thank you all in advance!
Anyone have any advice on how to break into customer success? I've been a BDR for over 2 years now, and I've learned a lot from that role. My next step I feel is a CSM or CSA. I am more of a farmer than a hunter and I'm very customer-centric. I find my strengths are in CS but it seems like you need experience within CS to break into CS. Any tips or referrals? Thanks!

I used to think my hometown was boring, but after being deployed for six months, there's genuinely no other place I would rather be in. Does that happen often? I moved to my hometown again and feel happier and at peace.
Curious to see if people are interested in part-time entrepreneurship. There are a lot of folks who have the ability and skills to build a cool product on the side but there's just too much overhead with finding co-founders, worrying about ownership, managing a legal entity and whatnot. We're working on Ataeum to solve for a lot of this and looking for beta testers. Here's an explainer video: https://youtu.be/QmzkMM8T_a0
Let me know if you'd like to help us beta test on Ataeum.com
This July 4th was probably the wildest and most vibrant nighy that I've ever seen in this city...
At least I know in upper Brooklyn it felt like a non stop party / fireworks show.
How was it in your neighborhood?
Anyone work for Accenture FS Emerging Tech? Have a call with a third party recruiter. Wondering if someone could give me background on the practice?
Partners, I understand attention to detail is essential in our jobs. I have attention to detail, but I am not good at copying numbers from (e.g.) a PDF file into Excel or Word. It’s data entry, but I will inevitably flip a 54 and write it as 45 (I’m not dyslexic). Any suggestions on how to keep myself focused on something like this? I know this is not the typical partner question, but I am asking in case you developed any strategies for being focused while copying data.
