Cover letters to tech companies. Worth it? Starting to prepare for my exit and wanted to know if fellow 🐠 have an opinion. As a hiring manager in consulting, I don't read them, but don't want to bar the possiblity.

I’ve never wrote one for tech and got interviews. But it’s a must in consulting/banking to even get your app read. Different standards

This is a good question. I myself have never used a cover letter and also curious if it has any value...

Hi All, I need some career guidance. 7+ YOE - 3 in tech support role (after BE) and 4+ in BA & PM role (after MBA). Worked on RPA and process improvement projects for 2 yrs. Currently working on internal tool implementation projects - PMO, UAT, change strategy, etc. I want to switch to a product company in a PM/TPM role, and I am planning to learn something new which has a great future scope, pays well, and aligns with my profile. Any recommendation would really help me take a right call.

I don’t think I could make this up. Interviewed with a recruiter, hiring manager, in house counsel, legal staff. I was told I was in final and was asked to supply half a dozen references who all submitted written recs. No decision so I was asked to interview with in house clients. Company still can’t make a decision so I am being asked to submit my final overall desired comp package. Mind you - this is not an AGC, DGC, or GC role, and not even F500 company. Thoughts? Is this normal now?

How much of your portfolio is spec work? I have an advertising background but am looking to move into a product role but a lot of the work I have isn’t relevant. My current title might be relevant as I’m trying to not take a step down in position.

(We all do user research and journey mapping, no UX person on the team so that responsibility falls on me, etc).

How would you all handle? It's currently unclear whether I will get to work my notice period due to the nature of my role.
