Had a final round interview with B4 consulting on Monday and spoke with a partner for 10 min. When is it okay to follow up with them about a final decision? Currently staffed and they wanted me to start in March. So wanted to give my team maximum time to backfill my position.
What are your thoughts on the chief of staff role at a startup? I want to get into tech startups but don’t have an “idea” yet and am not a “builder/engineer”. I read the JDs for this type of role and it sounds like a great role for a former management consultant/strategic advisor and a good way to get into startups and set yourself up to run your own startup some day…is my understanding correct or should I approach getting into startups a different way?

Heya!!! I’m interviewing next week for a Sr Account Manager role @ a digital mkt agency. The interviewer asked me to send in my salary expectation before we talk. This is a little bit challenging to me. Talk numbers. The position ask for at least 4 years experience. I have 6. I want to ask for a fair amount because I do think I can bring much value to the company. Also don’t want to compromise just because I’m out of work at the moment. Do you guys have a suggestion ? TIA!!!
Any male Asians , feel that they have been passed up for a role because they are Asian ? Feels like the Asian man dating effect spills over into corporate culture . Or am I alone n over thinking it?
How to get into cloud? I am stuck in a project that is not giving me the opportunity to learn more technologies. I do want to learn more cloud but only have the associate as dev cert and its expiring soon. I am looking for new opportunities and am curious if I should go for reach positions where cloud related tech is forefront vs positions where my main skill is forefront(java). For the main Java roles there are cloud related skills (at least in the requirements for position) there...thanks

Moved to a new role where I need to use excel a lot more than I previously have. Can anyone recommend good courses to sharpen up my skills/improve my speed?
Made M recently. Total 10 YOE industry (7) and consulting (3) combined. Based out of MCOL city. Found a Directory level exit opportunity that pays 200k base (20% increase over current) but requires me to relocate to a HCOL city. I'm not sure whether to bite. Company isn't all that sexy and I like where I live but the JD looks like it was written for me. If it was a job that I wouldn't need to relocate for, I might just take it. Does it make good career sense to take it? Got a family too.
Young 25 year old bilingual French in Security Sales as an SDR. Making 200% of my number on average. Company doesn’t have a clear path as a next step and I’ve been in the role for a year. I am hungry and continue to study and learn. Company has good culture, But 80k OTE sounds light for my investment. Currently speaking with upper-level management to create a path. Any advice?

Is it ok to ask the recruiter in initial phone screening for salary range? Does it make it seem like you’re less enthusiastic about the position? Also, if they revert with “what range are you looking for” and you respond with a range 20% higher, will they not move you onto the next round?
Currently at FAANG in a Client Solutions role. I’ve been here for 6 months, have the opportunity to potentially transition to BizOps or Product (in title, work is more implementation focused) in 6 months. Just got a Sales Strategy offer for a tech company but not FAANG. I like the team, pay is equal, and it’s remote with monthly travel. Scared of burning FAANG bridge with potential move out but also dislike my role because I hate sales and want to do strategy work. Thoughts?
I just spoke to someone at C3.ai about a Delivery Manager position. Is anyone here familiar with their recruiting process and culture/benefits? I got some information from their website but I’d appreciate some specifics.

Like my boobs don’t feel sore and don’t have intense food cravings.

Got an offer for an industry tax job. $15k bump in salary. But, because of timing differences, I’m going to lose out on the bonus from my current firm (I’m guessing 4-7k), but won’t be eligible for another year at the new place. Tips/advice to get a signing bonus or something to make up for that?
