Hi folks, I’m wish to break into tech sales as marketer. Have got consultative, training and prospecting experience in my own business but need to get back to traditional work. I’m based in Toronto and interviewed with a US SaaS company recently, open to networking with anyone in this area over a virtual hang! If you’re part of any exclusive “women in sales” groups please offer me an invite!
I was contacted by a Facebook recruiter for a Data Scientist interview, but I'm not ready to take a new job right now. Should I take the interview for the practice or would that look bad if I want to seriously apply next year?

Anyone laid off from Deloitte been getting interviews? (Not for tech roles but more finance) im getting traction from head hunters but not much from firm website applications
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
How do you prepare for case interviews with industry companies? I imagine the best way to understand their background is looking at the platform, their monetization strategies, earnings reports etc etc. What kind of possible questions could be asked in the case scenario?
Has anyone successfully relocated for a job and have some tips? I am currently applying (3 yoe) but having trouble getting interest from recruiters outside my state.
I’m interviewing for a role that is open to both remote and in-office (when it’s safe) work. Should I give salary expectations based on cost of living in the city where the office is located or based on where I’d live working remotely? Cost of living in the office location is a lot higher than where I’d live but since they are also considering in-person candidates, I know the budget is there.
Has anyone gone through the interview process for PWC or Accenture recently? Should I prepare for case studies?
Is it okay to apply for another role with a company when already in interview process? Finished onsite for a FAANG role and recruiter mentioned I had positive feedback, but they are interviewing other folks before deciding and might take another couple of weeks. I saw another opportunity that aligns well with my experience posted. Should I go ahead and apply because this one might not come through? Or better to wait till I hear a Yes/No
Do people at Junior Levels not lead meetings in industry? I just got asked if I had that experience during an interview. I have to lead a meeting/lead a portion almost everyday. So it’s weird that I would get asked this question.
I know M&A has a terrible rep, but if there’s anyone who enjoys it (or at least doesn’t completely hate it), could you please say what you like about the practice? Interviewing for an M&A position and really do want to love the job, at least for a year. FYI, I’m retooling from lit, and no, staying at my current firm isn’t an option.
I suck at case interviews. :( Engineering undergrad and currently in a tech consulting role. Feel like I lack general business knowledge. Had an interview today for a Strategy position and feeling discouraged. I am great at setting up a framework but I struggle with progressing the case (anticipating what’s next) and the math. What resources can I use that don’t require spending $200-400 on a course? Or, if it really is a matter of taking a course, which one should I take?
Reviewing resumes and I see more and more frequent that people last one year or less at a job and move on to the next. Is that the new norm? I’m a millennial but my last job I was with for over 4 years. Can I ask in the interview why they’ve moved around so much? Or find a nicer way of asking that. I’m definitely looking for longevity not a hopper.
Any 🐠 have subscriptions with IGD (retail analytics) or similar? Need help w downloading couple of reports that I can use to prep for an upcoming interview. Will buy you 🌮 and/or 🍸 for help.

I recently attended an Indian (zoom) wedding wherein the bride’s mother used intelligent before beautiful and kind to describe the bride. First time ever did I hear such a thing. Can’t wait for the day when this becomes the business-as-usual. Women are more than their looks.
People who have had confidence knocks: how did you get it back? I was laid off, 6M out of work, had therapy, now freelancing but I’m slow af. It’s like my brain only works in 2nd gear now.
*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid). I shared my target salary /lateral move & at the negotiation point, they came up slightly by way of qtrly bonus structure but also outlined path for growth incl. expected salary increases at said points. Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??
I have a huge crush on an recently-hired intern. I’m married and twice as old. I would never act on it. But.... swoon

How do you keep your convos in slack organized? I struggle with finding a specific discussion, even when I save it to my ‘saved items folder.’ I find it easier to keep track of emails. So what’s the best way of finding a specific convo within a channel?

Next week I’m having my first lateral interview as a junior associate. I’m very nervous because the group with whom I’m interviewing works with life science/tech clients and the attorneys have strong science/tech backgrounds; and I do not. However, I am very, very interested in transitioning to this practice. And I reaaally want this job because it’s at my dream firm. How would you recommend preparing for the lateral interview?
Anyone go through intense anxiety (shaking legs, sweaty palms)? I’ve been facing that for two years and feel intense pressure of smallest of tasks and lack of self worth about not getting a promotion
