Background: I left my company and joined a new one but have recently discovered that I think I made the wrong choice.There are enough "red flags" that make it a NO for me.I have been interviewing and telling companies that I am still at my last company.Should I keep doing that or tell them I have been at a place that is not working out?The new place I am at is considered one of the best startups in the US
What’s the best way to resign from a job after accepting a job offer at a different company?
What's would be good salary for technical sales - business development Manager in Sydney?
I was recently let go from my job of 7 years with an organic egg company. We were purchased by private equity and I was the first to be let go by the new SVP of Sales. I worked my way up from Sales Admin to Trade Marketing Manager in a 5 year span. It’s been over a month and I don’t have any solid leads for a new role. I’m looking for a role in Category Management, Trade Management or just Sales in general. I am very competent and have valid credentials. Any help is appreciated.
I have my next and final (7th) interview for a TM position with the VP of sales coming up. Any suggestions for this scenario and closing the deal?
Hi everyone. Just looking for some advice.
I recently lost my job and my former employer notified me over a call, and the reason was that they’re just too busy to train me. I then applied for EI / unemployment but got told I wouldn’t be getting any money, because my employer said they had to let me go due to shortage of work. I know that’s not true because they hired 2 new people the following week.
What would be the appropriate steps to take in this situation? Thank you for any advice!
Does anyone have a sharable compensation model geared toward a Business Development Manager in the Building Services Industry?
Anyone in Core having issues working with Mule?
It seems like they always go solo and really don't want to be part of Salesforce, hence they often happily state "we are not Salesforce, we are Mulesoft". Would also like to have Mule folks view on this.
How do you know your value? Throughout my 10 yrs of being in a professional setting, I've had colleagues from various places of employment say, I don't think you know your worth. You're under valued, etc. What exercises/tools have helped you realize your worth and effectively advocate for it? TIA!
Hi! I am about to go through a background check with finger prints (located in NY). I have an arrest with no charge that comes up when I do fingerprints. I have a document stating that I was not charged. Should I wait until it’s flagged (if it will be) or should I be proactive and once I submit my fingerprint, explain my story and attach the appropriate documents. I’m nervous because I was wrongly arrested for theft a few years back and this job is for a financial institution. TIA :)
Sales people- what’s the longest you’ve been able to push out the start date of a new position you’ve been offered and how’d you do it? Curious since there tends to be a ton of urgency getting a new sales hire started. Especially helpful if you’re in tech sales but interested in hearing everyone’s experience.
What ATS do you use? Would you recommend it?
Hey Sales Community,
Would love to get a couple people to sit in on a demo call for a sales intelligence platform that shows you how more likely prospects will engage with you based on intent data,
We’ve seen an uptick in sales leaders revenue and pipeline generated based on our data..
So who is curious to check this demo out ? :)
My company is looking for a technical recruiter outside of Philadelphia. Good company, benefits and pay. Please contact me if interested!
Why do you think so many in their 20s and early 30s on here are so conservative with their money (e.g., putting money in HYSA/CDs, building 6-12 month cash emergency funds, renting instead of buying a home)? It reminds me a little of the depression era mindset my grandparents had. Seems like a sure fire way of decreasing long term returns. On the bright side, maybe it will have the long term effect of decreasing wealth inequality.
As a new hire, what’s the better approach? Go around looking (begging) for billable hours or sit tight at my desk for 8 hours a day and study for the CPA exam?
Where can I find proper pay rate for my job?
Hi ladies, i have my mid year “growth” discussion and I’m not sure what to ask for. I manage programs and partnerships and I am finding hard to navigate my self assessment.
One of the questions will be how my manager can support me. I’d appreciate any experience, ideas, recommendations.

What firms tax department are more innovative with technology? Preferably a culture that praises innovation.
My current firm is a little slow. The national level loves speaking about innovation, but the office is so slow and wants everything to be the same. We use CCH Axcess, but our workpapers are extremely heavy data entry dependent. No one tries to utilize any software to ease the data entry.
I’ve been helping my girlfriend with job hunting for entry level graphic designer roles. It’s been rough with media companies experiencing hiring freezes. So I was wondering if anyone has any tips for getting your foot in the door for this type of role?
