All these years my fellow humans and I have been communicating with each other the wrong way (non-human.. unhuman?)... Thank you advertising people for always reminding us to be “human-centric.”

How would someone coming from mostly retail wireless sales get into the tech sales industry? I have been a top performer in every sales job that I have had since I started my career almost 10 years ago. I don't have a degree which I feel might be keeping me from getting my foot in the door but I know I would be amazing in this field. I currently work out in the field selling to customers that have no idea I am coming and I consistently perform at the top of my market.

Hey all
Debating a project that’s rather long and uses pretty old coding language but high visibility. Thoughts?


After an interview this morning, I sent out what was SUPPOSED to be a thank you email. I really should have stepped away from my desk and put my full attention towards it, but instead I rushed through it and am now realizing I didn't even THANK HIM FOR HIS TIME OR THE OPPORTUNITY! Ugh.

Does it come off as entitled as I think it does?

Currently spiraling with panic attacks and constant anxiety. I billed over 300 hours last month, have worked every day for over 3 months, and every time I reach out to staffers I’m overwhelmed, I get a generic “it’s okay, you’ve got this!” I can’t even spend 10 minutes with my two young kids. Entering second year and could probably avoid working with these people once these deals are done. Is there any hope for me? How do I set boundaries? Should I, or can I, escape to in-house at this point?


Spoke with a recruiter about a role in Deloitte M&A Analytics, want to get a better sense of exit opportunities from a role like that. Trying to decide if the juice is worth the squeeze with hours reqs being the way they are. Anyone move on from there to something they like?


Anyone whose role is a Contract Analyst, how would you describe your experience learning the ins and outs of contract work? I come a litigation background and have an interview for a Contracts Analyst position that I’m interested in, but unsure of what to really expect from the role…I draft boilerplate pleadings regularly so I assume it’s similar? Any insight would be helpful! TIA!

Hi all, how far in advance of a hopeful start date should I be submitting applications for medical writing positions? I'm hoping to start 7/5 and am wondering if I'm being ghosted because I'm applying too early.

Also, when it comes to filling in the requested salary box (ugh), I've been shooting for the moon because I figure they'll just negotiate down anyways. Is this foolish and/or could it prevent my application from even being looked at?
