I’m not happy where I’m at, my abilities aren’t being maximized as I’m spread thin, and I know I’m being undervalued. Recently graduated and in property management w/ 3-4 years sales experience. Currently on the hunt for Sales/Account Management roles leaning more towards consumer goods, then tech. Any advice?
Has anyone gone from sales at a larger, well-established/known company to a startup? What are some key differences in your role and WLB, and how did you like the change? Any must-ask questions in the interview process? I have a final interview coming up.
To those who have several years of experience ion TA: Do you think staying in the campus recruiting space limits you? Should one try to get exposure to other HR areas for the long run?
Any strategies or resources you could recommend for getting rid of the dreaded annual performance review (or at least lessening the dread) and creating a more effective year round performance feedback system? Our review is currently tied to our end of year bonuses and merit increases, so not sure I could get rid of it entirely. This would be for hourly and management employees, all working on-site.
One of my executives thinks he is being endearing by calling women "Baby" "Gorgeous" "Sweetie" and he calls men "handsome". I have had multiple complaints against him from female employees and vendors. Does anyone know of any good training courses or advice that can help in this scenario?
Are you folks happy with your decision to make a career in sales? I’m young working in tech sales, but also have my bachelors in psychology, and could see my self happily going for my masters maybe even PHD and being a counselor.
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Hey guys! Our teammate is going through a pretty tough time, I wasn’t sure if this would be appropriate to post, but seeing as though this is a sales group, and my man Braxton is a sales beast... I thought I could try posting and apologize later. If you can give please do, if you can share please, if you can pray please, please do. We’re so close to getting his expenses covered, and after all he’s done to show up to our team.. I’m trying to show up to him in my fullest capacity. Thank you!!

Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)

Is it appropriate for junior consultants to connect on LinkedIn with senior clients from a project? I’m about to roll off my project and want to keep in touch with these clients given they work in my dream exit job. For context, the client is senior in title but relatively young (mid 30s) so not like retirement aged executive who may find my networking too forward. We had great interactions throughout but no explicit invite to connect on LinkedIn. TIA!
I’m a second year associate at mid market firm, did my first year at a big 4 but got laid off last year due to covid. I’m motivated to return to big 4 but I’m concerned with how that looks, switching firms pretty quickly. Would it do me any favors to explain to future employers that exiting my first firm was involuntary? Is it challenging to crack into big 4 as an experienced hire but one that doesn’t have a lot of senior experience yet? Appreciate any insight!
Just wanted to give a big virtual hug and thank you to this group! About a week ago I asked for advice on contacting a client about her very interesting work. Just wanted to say that because of everyone's advice and support, I emailed her.... and it was AWESOME! We had an hour zoom chat and she is just super cool! 😊 So thank you ladies for giving me the confidence to just do it!
Not currently in BigLaw but looking to lateral to a remote securities/cap markets position (live in a secondary market) from a boutique. Non-traditional older associate, billed 2000 hours last year and received a 2.5% raise and $1,000 bonus (other associates received $20k). Performance was not terrible, but less supervision so definitely made mistakes. Now finding out I am undervalued after getting interest from firms in the range of 50-60% more than my current salary. Anyone hiring?
Is it possible Fauci is lying to us about needing a “cure” when he already acknowledged we had one for SARS / novel coronavirus back in 2005? HCQ + Azithromycin + zinc function as both a cure and a vaccine. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1232869/ https://onenewsnow.com/perspectives/bryan-fischer/2020/04/27/fauci-knew-about-hcq-in-2005-nobody-needed-to-die

Just got word I got my 3rd raise of the year (2.5 YOE, 24). Started 2020 making $60K, starting 2021 making $78.5K. I know this isn't a lot comparatively to other posts, but holy shit. Unless I was wildly underpaid to begin with, why am I able to have 3 raises in one year?
