It does not from a relocation cost perspective. It does from a network and being familiar with tech business perspective. Interviewed with Twitter and few other tech firms for a finance role in Bay Area. The interviews went really well. But they finally chose someone who has been at FAANG

Yes that’s the challenge I am facing. I am working in finance in a bank and moving to Bay Area in finance on tech seems to be an uphill task.

Yes and most certainly expect a question about your timetable for relocation.

What kind of role? Can you be a bit more specific?

Thanks

I’m from NYC and made the transition. One price of advice. CA employment law and how to manage CA’s hyper diverse workforce is something that many Californian’s have a as a bias. Consider including stories of managing/leading a diverse team and negotiating with people who are very different from your background-whatever that might be

Thanks!

I’ve been interviewing for Director of Product Marketing roles at late stage startups in hyper growth mode. In my last 2 hiring manager interviews, they’ve not asked me any questions outside of having me share a bit about myself. I was in the earlier days of a FAANG company, so perhaps there’s an assumption they already know how I’d build/lead a team or execute. Both have wanted to offer the time for me to ask them questions with little questions in return. Is this expected or lack of prep?

Hi Fishers, I am a Senior ETL Developer with 9+ YOE. I have offers from the below organisations with almost same compensation. I still have 45 days left of my Notice Period. Can you please help me here and let me know according to you which company should I join? 1. Luxoft India LLP (a DXC Company) 2. HCL Technologies 3. Cognizant Technology Solutions 4. Legato Health Technologies All these companies are giving me a Technical Lead role. I am looking for job security & work life balance. TIA!

I’m from one of the world’s most underdeveloped countries in Africa and all I want to do is leave. People keep telling me to stay and make it better and while I do agree to that in principle, at every single level, public or private, everyone here is either corrupt or incompetent. If I stay I’d just be harming myself and not helping anyone. Worst part is that there’s not a single PM role here, so when my overseas contract runs out I might be in a tough spot. Just wanted to get it off my chest

I get interrupted a lot at work now that we are virtual. I don't feel like this happens to everyone else in my team as much, meaning folks tend to let them talk longer. So I've reduced my contribution and talk less. But then others make the same point I'm thinking and would normally have said. So now I just look like a silent non-contributor or someone who gets interrupted a lot. Office/team culture is generally good, respectful and peaceful. How do I change this? What can I do differently?
