4 months, 7 interviews, all done and dusted, numerous congratulations mails and messages and now they say they can’t offer the job. Weird flex, but not okay 🤬 IBM, you shithole.
Might be a paranoid mom question - my 16 month old is starting daycare next week. So far, I’ve had virtual interviews/meet and greet sessions with the daycare staff. Today we went in for our in-person orientation and I noticed that my child is the only non-white kid in his class of 8. Not entirely shocking, but in my head (and having seen pictures in their catalog) I was hoping there would be a little more diversity. Should I be worried about my kid feeling left out because he looks different?
Interviewed with Citi Bank twice, was told to expect a response in the next week or so. It’s been almost two weeks since the last interview, is it reasonable to follow up?

Any tips for getting interviews/job offers? I don’t have too many people in my network but I’m trying to switch to another big 4 in tech.

After a few long interview processes, I've learned that prior CPG experience is highly valued when entering any CPG industry (even in low- to mid-level roles). Can someone with experience recruiting in the space help explain the importance of the experience? Alternatively, would love to be able to "spin" my resume to help fill in the gaps that this lack of experience leaves.
I’m an Analytics Consultant looking for industry roles as a data analyst/BI Developer. I’ve had a few recruiters and job postings ask directly for a dashboard sample. I obviously can’t give them anything I’ve worked on because of client’s proprietary data and NDAs. Has anyone run into this problem before? Did you end up making a dashboard with public data solely for industry interviews?

I’ve been told by my firm that I need to get a corporate amex card. I’m new to consulting- can I still use my own credit card to get the points and expense that way? If it’s the corporate card can I still get points for it also or does it only go to EYP? Curious to know if a corporate amex is even a good thing or the benefits for it. Thanks!
I wish my company cared less about “optics” and just valued good work. Literally had some one tell me it’s bad optics to WFH right now. It’s not like there’s a pandemic or anything 🙄
When you resign and you happen to be on the bench at that time. After giving two week notice, so you start to tell colleagues that you are leaving and schedule time to catch up with them in groups/ 1:1 (since you have time); or just wait until your last to send out farewell email to inform all the people you’ve interacted with at work?
What is your typical schedule like? Are companies outside the tech world more flexible with remote work or are you going in regularly?
Been with my current company just under 6 months and about to put in my notice because I received an Offer in Product Management that was an absolute dream role and company.
