Completed all interviews for a program manager role. All feedback was positive and they want to go ahead but with a different role. The new role is Project and process manager in Payroll.

Have you had a fit call with the hiring manager? How does it differ from your overall goals? Your first six months at Google are largely learning the job, company, processes, culture, etc. You wouldn’t be ill served to join and do a transfer in due time. The interviews must have showed you have operational expertise and you’d succeed more highly in this role. If you still have a fit call and hiring committee to get through, take more information before deciding.

I think you’re on track. Not sure what office (Bay area or NYC or another location) but keep in mind headcount is usually slim for PgM.

You can ask always the recruiter about the role and how it is different.

+1 for learning more about he role and potentially accepting it. Once you're in, you can look for other roles after a year or so if you don't enjoy the work after all.

Cont. The new role is less aligned with what I’m looking for than the original one. On the one hand, it still seems like a great opportunity, on the other hand, it’s not what I was looking for and sounds less exciting. How should I play it or reframe in my mind? What is the difference between PgM and Project and process manager?

Hi everyone! I’ve applied for a junior designer position at Sid Lee Toronto. I’ve also Inmailed the recruiter, and emailed the creative director 😅 But haven’t gotten a response.

Very young professional here - what is the etiquette for interviewing for jobs during the work day? Every place I look only offers times during working hours. I’m not sure if this is just normal / the way it is - how should I maneuver things respectfully?

Is anyone currently on the job hunt? What has your experience been like? I still don’t see a ton of agency side media jobs their mostly client side and it seems super competitive given the current state of unemployment. I get everyone is still remote but I feel like things should be getting better on the job front given things have relatively opened up here.

I interviewed for a BB during junior year, and declined an offer to a BB. A recruiter at the firm that I declined reached out to me. Will it negatively impact me, seriously thinking about a switch.

Had a networking call with a partner that said they won’t be interviewing until 2021 for lateral hires. Friend said that’s not entirely true, and to try networking with others in that same office. Don’t want to come across as pushy. If a Partner really liked me, couldn’t they make a push to interview me? 🤔

Looking to travel to Lisbon and Greece this July for my honeymoon(we’ve delayed it due to Covid). They’re currently the only two open European countries that makes sense for this sort of trip, but curious if this crowd has any recommendations. My flights are taken care of, but also curious if there are any Bonvoy or Chase point hacks/deals that make sense for these countries.

Me not buying a word of this propaganda on the compensation calls. They do realize who they’re trying to fool, don’t they? We invented smoke and mirrors. Don’t try it with us.
