Any of my lady bosses ever experience any apprehension or anxiety when applying for a position that is outside your current scope? I recently was contacted by a internationally known corporation for a senior level position, but I am currently only in an entry level position. I’ve been experiencing a great deal of anxiety when thinking about transitioning into that role. Even though I KNOW I would thrive with the company, my anxiety is really getting the best of me at the moment. Any advice?

Anxiety means living in the future - try living in the now. You can try doing something physical whenever the anxiety gets the best of you - such as taking a walk. doing some wall push-ups. getting into child’s pose on the floor…things like that


The impostor syndrome is common in women. Think that most men will jump right into it even when significantly less qualified. The fact they are interested signals a strong fit, so go for it and don’t look back. Know that you are capable and what you don’t know you’ll learn and figure out.


Have you gone through the interview process yet? I’d take that time to practice, learn, ask questions, get a sense of the role and team and that may help you move forward.

Anyone move from accounting advisory to more of a financial analyst role?

It’s very discouraging to continuously receive these rejection emails. With 9 years of supply chain experience, I am not sure why I would not be able to at least get an interview for entry level roles that require no experience. Not just this one pictured but others as well. I’ve applied to maybe 60 positions since May, both mid level and “entry” and no interviews. I’ve had my resume professionally re-written twice. Not sure where the disconnect is. Anyone else going through this same thing?

This Friday is my last day at my current role, I have 5 interviews for recruiting positions / office assistant jobs! I don’t want to be out of work for more than a week because of bills ofcourse, so would it be best for me to accept my first job offer, or to take on a temp receptionist role with an agency while continuing to look for a solid job offer? I would feel bad working somewhere for 1 week.


How do you talk about your failures when asked in an interview? I don't want to seem like I'm BS-ing my answer but I also don't want to sabotage my chances.

So is it just us on this bowl. Totally fine if it is. This evening we had a rose. It’s from sojourn, one of my favorite boutique wineries. They had a promotion where a case was 30% off so I had to do it. After discount but plus tax was $26 a bottle which is expensive for a rose in general but for a Rose of Pinot noir was a good price. Paired it with Dover sole dusted in flour and fried in butter. Made a reduction with the rose, capers and lemon juice end up bit salty but was ok since we had wine

Started a new job back in January. Creative Director, a team of 7. Went back & fourth in negotiating. Offered 110k. Asked for 120k, settled on 115k. I even threw in that I was taking a hit with benefits, needing to pay 5k more as compared to my position I was leaving. That’s how I got it to 115k. At my annual I plan to address again, in partnership with the impact this position will have made this past year. What do other creative directors earn, if you don’t mind sharing? Industry av says 136k
