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?

Any suggestions on how to continue helping a new employee in our dept when they do not take notes? I am always willing to help, but it is becoming frustrating to constantly go over the same thing. I have expressed that because our dept does so many things that it is good to take notes over the things we are going over. When our MGR was out of town I spent a large amount of time being patient and helping her all throughout the day. It is now taking time from the task that I need to work on.

Two offers. Is it best to choose the company that is most stable because it’s larger but lacks a clear product offering and entering a new sector or the company that is more in growth phase but has clearer product offering?

bases are off by 20k, haven’t countered yet. OTE sounds comparable but have more faith in the clearer product offering.

POV: 2 and s half months into a new job: position internal sales support. Request of SM to find all potential customers in 2 main areas of sales and send them the information of companies name as well as contact name and sort the info from most important company to least, all from scratch.
The SM knows I am new to the industry and have no previous experience in it.
Is this something normal to ask to have done? Is it normal to give a few days to hand in the requested information?

Hello hello,

Had my induction today at my new company (asset manager). Really liked HR girl who led the meeting, chatted a bit after, loved her smile.
