I’ve been trying to get an HR Generalist role but I keep getting pigeonholed inTalent Acquisition roles because of my recruiting background. How can I get myself out of recruiting and into a generalist role? (I was an HR Coordinator for a few years).
For anyone in FP&A / Business Partner roles- what keeps you motivated/ engaged in the role when you’re basically a support team and rarely get the final say in decisions or are plainly an input provider ? I’ve been in FP&A for 4-5 years but failing to see when it gets interesting outside of the occasional valuation projects(again usually following the matrix structure so you don’t own the full end to end)
I have moved on to the next phase of my interview. I will be interviewing with a corporate trainer and a vp of finance and strategy.

Hey! Am wondering if anyone has a change and comms template they could help me with for my role? Thanks!
I've been emailing back and forth with a recruiter. The last email was regarding scheduling a time for a phone interview. I responded soon after, but the correspondence has gone cold. I don't get it.
Hey, reaching out for advice. My husband has spent the bulk of his life in the restaurant industry as a beverage director and then most recently had owned a professional services company. He is thinking of getting into sales and is looking for a dynamic work environment and a place that would be willing to see his entrepreneurship as at least some relevant experience. Maybe entry level plus room for growth. Anyone have any ideas for good companies to target?
Has anyone transitioned from direct sales to indirect (channel, solutions consulting, etc.)? I’m an Enterprise AM currently (6+ years of total closing experience in SaaS) but looking to make a change sometime in the next 18-24 months. Certainly expecting to sacrifice financial upside but growing tired of the grind.
Is it so wrong to want to specialize in a certain area of corp fin after reaching a comfortable point in your career? Being on the "CFO track" and avoiding "pidgeon-holing" are terms used by management to pressure employees into taking roles they don't have an interest in. I get the theory behind it, but it's not a one-size fits all. I think ideally it can cultivate a finance leader for the future, but more realistically/frequently it leads to disassociation and burnout.

The Salary Trap - Gift or a Curse
Could a great pay and benefit package be a cleverly placed trap?
Experimented with some interviews at different companies to see what a senior role would pay out. Pretty much in line with what I make now and most of the companies pay less. The company I work at is pretty great with a good team.
What would it take for someone to take a risk with a new employer, if there is going to be no salary increase?
Work BURNOUT… LET’S TALK ABOUT IT. So a little back story. I am 38 a full full time single mom. I work about 60 hours per week. I do not get child support. My employer currently expects me to bring in 15 new customers & 100 existing every month… minimum. I have realized with my upcoming paid time off that I am burnt out. I recently have had no motivation to produce because I so desperately need a break. I sell internet and am the 2nd top producing rep in the region. Opinions to get my mojo back.
So my company has slowly been pulling back on the WFH policy. And for the past six months, we’ve been offering a hybrid schedule, however; the higher-ups decided this week that we are to enforce a full return to the office by the beginning of Q4. This is not going to go over well, how do I soften the blow when explaining the new policy to the team?
To sleep or not to sleep? That is the question... that I’m contemplating right now. At what point is sleep the better choice in the middle of a very busy week? Will I be more productive tomorrow if I call it quits and actually get a full 8 hours tonight? Or do I keep churning out half-assed work product until the wee hours of the night in hopes of catching up, since I’m already two days behind where I need to be?
I recently applied and completed the assessments for Bain & Company and I’ve just received an email saying my application is currently under review and I have been asked to provide a summary voice over for leaving my current firm in favour of a competitor. Has anybody come across this before? If so, any tips would be really helpful right now! Many thanks in advance!
I have been having a lot of trouble connecting with people the past couple of years. I try but haven’t made a good friend in years and many I had moved away or drifted apart. Not sure if this has anything to do with medication or just the direction I am heading in life. Has medication made anyone feel socially isolated/alienated?
My best friend of 20 years just came out to me this weekend. I've always thought there was a small chance he was gay, but never thought anything if it. More of a running joke between us and our friends.
What's the best way to show my support? I've def made a few distasteful jokes in our 20 years of friendship and looking bad I feel so stupid. I just want him to know I love him and fully support him.

Hey Fishes!!! Any idea, how many days would it take for TechM to process the offer letter from the date of Letter of Intent? I have received the LOI last week and i have submitted all documentations the same day. The HR messaged me saying that my offer is in process. Just curious to know the offer process period(days) and why would it take more than 3 days when the LOI has all band, role and salary breakup which means i presume that there are no approval delays. Can some HR enlighten us
Does anyone else feel disappointed by dating and just constantly not getting your needs met. Losing hope and just needed to share. ❤️
For those of you who build websites, how do you display your built sites on your portfolio site? Do you have a page where you mock up the site or do you do a direct link? I currently have both. I’m just trying to figure out the best way for me. Here is my site for reference. The links for the sites are in the menu and below in the gallery. Sarahbellestudios.com
Went through a terrible breakup last night. Barely got any sleep and feel terrible. Work requires me to go into the office every day, but I can’t imagine sitting there, trying to get anything done. I’ve already put in my two weeks at my firm so I’m just wrapping up a few assignments. Should I go in and try to get stuff done? Or should I just let my boss know I’m dealing with personal issues and take the day?
For those of us who don’t think we’ll be shooting for PPMD, what level SM do you think is the ideal jumping off point into a different job? What types of jobs and salary increase would you expect?
