I currently lead a non-Tech team at a Tech F500 as a VP but can't get any FAANG/growth Tech interviews. I've been targeting Google L5/L6 equivalent given the tendency to downlevel, but no luck even with referrals. I can get Microsoft equivalent type companies but not any of the hot ones. Are FAANGs only targeting candidates from other FAANGs? How do I get my foot in the door?

Hi! I'm currently in a dilemma. I recently got an offer from a company that wants me to give a final answer by Friday AM but I am simultaneously interviewing with KPMG and in the final round waiting for my call with the partner. KPMG is my top choice, but if I don't get hired by KPMG, I don't want to lose this offer. Have any of you accepted an offer and then got an offer from another company that you wanted to work at and left the job that you just started? What other advice do you guys have?

Unexpectedly leaving consulting for industry. Background isn’t in apparel but got an offer to join a large international apparel company as a product director and decided to make the jump. Current TC is $183k with annual bonus between 10-20%. New TC will be $200k, $50k signing, annual bonus of 15-40%, and progression path to VP. Will also be managing teams around the world, so opportunity to travel internationally, which is a perk in my book.

In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/26/science/reopen-schools-safety-ventilation.html ￼￼￼￼￼

Finally went back to the office today and went to lunch with a couple colleagues with a client we are working to retain after the relationship partner retired. Great lunch, great conversation. As we were wrapping up client asked me about my due date (I am very obviously pregnant), so I let him know - Sept. 26. He proceeded to let me know he knew I had some fun at New Year’s… like what? Can we not? I just laughed it off bc how else do you respond in front of colleagues and a client? Blech.
