I am an associate hairstylist and on Sunday me and a group of associates will be discussing a pay raise with our boss. Even though we work over full time and have licensing and excel in our careers we’re making bellow poverty wages. The goal is to get our hourly pay up to $15/hour since it’s currently at $9/hour. I have pulled up research on inflation ratings and compiled them neatly into a slide show. What would you recommend I do? I’m also getting job offers matching $15/hour, the market value
Hi all, hope you’re having a wonderful Friday. I’m looking for advice on how to pivot from my current job in finance consulting to something a little closer to my bachelor studies, biosciences. Academia wasn’t for me, so I ended up working in finance and transformation due to my STEM background. I miss the intellectual challenge and the clear purpose associated with the work I used to do in research, is there a way I can combine my corporate skillset with my love for nature, and earn a living? 🙏🏻
For those actively applying I’m wondering how responsive companies have been. I’ve applied to some jobs and have heard nothing for close to a month now. Not sure if most companies will send you a denial email or not even reach out at all. I’ve had two frequent scenarios. The position I apply to closes, I get denied but the role reposts. The position I apply to closes, I don’t hear any response but the role reposts. Would love to hear anyone’s thoughts or experiences.

Hey everybody, new here. But after reading through some of the post , I see that I am not the only one in the same boat. I’m in my 2 year as a teacher, currently a middle school math teacher. It was never my intention to begin with and I don’t mind it. I just know that’s not where my heart is. Anybody have similar experiences moving from teaching into another career such as something in finance. How would I even begin to break into the field with a degree in something not particularly related.
I applied to a new job recently and the Glassdoor salary estimate is 68-100k. So I put 90k in requested salary as I currently make 74k and I wanted to aim high with room to come down (this is what i did for my last job, they offered 8k lower which was fine). However I then saw on Indeed they guessed the job range to be 58-68k. This is so confusing and annoying. I’m in Southern California so that factors into salary.
Did I put too high? Should I follow up and say salary negotiable?
I will be interviewing for @KPMG – Global Infrastructure Advisory Team this week.

Seeking to transition out of the current industry into cloud computing. Spent the last 2+ years learning and acquiring experience in AWS, CI/CD, Jenkins, AWS Pipeline, GitHub, and Terraform.

Copywriter considering a pivot into product management. Has anyone made the switch? What’s the best way to make inroads?

Regarding an application follow up: I applied to an entry-mid level sales job at a hospitality tech company and want to follow up. The only person I can see on LinkedIn with the #hiring banner is the VP of sales but its for a far more senior position. Do I go through them to find out who the hiring manager is and have them connect me? Or do I treat them like the hiring manager with my follow up? Trying to respect everyone's time and not reach out to the wrong people
Hi guys, just started a new job (Jan) for more money than I’ve had before. Problem is so far I’m being trained almost as a personal assistant. I thought my manager was just doing thorough onboarding but now, a month in I’ve realised my manager is a micro manager and I don’t know what to do about it. Should I look for a new job or try to have a conversation about it?

I feel almost depleted from the demanding tech career I've had for the past 8 years. I thought my recent switch to EdTech would help but no. I've been a project manager slaving away, working insane hours, and being completely overwhelmed on most days. I'm trying to assess if recruiting is a better fit for my skills since I have some experience working in Talent Acquisition and truly enjoying helping people. Have any project or program managers made this switch and found more work-life balance?
I want to get into data analyzing/data science. Any tips on classes I can take to boost my skills and make myself marketable? Currently in business analyzing but recently took a SQL class and am great with Excel
