What is the LGA taxi/ride share like these days for arrivals? Last time I flew in (summer 2017) I stood in a taxi line for 40 minutes.

Any advice? Besides avoid LGA ;)

How did everyone here get into sales? Would love to hear your stories!

I was getting out of the military, had no directly transferable work skills, and needed to make a living in an expensive city (San Diego). Started looking at my options and found that I could do menial labor for just above minimum wage OR I could learn to get people to buy things and make this wonderful thing called commission! Took a job in insurance sales and the rest is history! Been in sales for about 15 years now ❤️

This might be a stupid question - how do you get talking to a recruiter? I’ve put in a couple of applications but not had anything back - I’m pretty self aware but genuinely think I’m a very good fit (on paper at least), and feel like talking to a recruiter would help either concretely explain why im perhaps not a good fit, or actually give me a fighting chance amidst a sea of resumes. Any help welcome!

Hey Everyone.
Applied through the GS jobs portal on 10/5 for the early careers program in SLC, one position in trade and transaction management, the other in client services/sales support.
Heard back through the recruiter on 10/8 and just got my HireVue last night (10/13) and completed it today 10/14. Both of the positions are currently saying “Resume Under Review”

Any insight to this at all? How long it’s taken to get a super day invite back? How soon after did you get a rejection or offer?

1. Marrakech itinerary recommendations? Best way to get there from DC? Seems flying home takes overnight layover unless I take Royal Air Maroc or possibly TAP. How do these airlines compare to BA, AA, UA, Lufthansa, Swissair? If you had to do an overnight layover what are convenient cities to get into town (London, Geneva, Lisbon, Madrid, Frankfurt seem like the options)? Also how impractical is it to transfer from LGW to LHR if I want to spend a day or two in London anyway.
