So, I’m currently interviewing for new job, and market is not bad, but I’m anxious and I am interviewing for every opportunity that comes my way (director/vp level, tech). Today, September 30 I received an invite for an initial interview for another opportunity. So I applied to this opportunity through networking on August 10 (!). It looks like a red flag for me and I’m thinking thankyounext, but again it’s covid time... Thoughts?

I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?

2 YOE at big4 consulting. Was offered a data science role at FAANG. It was definitely a bit of a long shot and it kinda seems like a dream come. The one problem they’re down leveling me to a campus hire. My reasoning is in the long run a 2 year down level will be offset from the gain in prestige and experience. Even still, it’s a higher overall salary. Thoughts on if I should take it or keep recruiting?
