Had an interview via Zoom w/DM & I could tell by the tone of the conversation that I got the job. I get a call from her for a 2nd interview. This time w/ someone in the same position I was applying for. In the middle of the interview, the manager says she’s looking for an assistant. Now…I didn’t apply for that role-I applied for a role similar to hers & my experience & skills make me qualified for it. Although I could tell I nailed the interview…I’m not interested in an assistant. What do I do?

2) What's comp in the long term compared to consulting?
3) At McK I'm working 70-80h/week. How's wlb in PE Ops?

Hey HR/Copywriters...what do you say about workshopping a resume from the heart.

No jargon. Brutally human. Slightly colorful.
The English language is so much better than the 500-lame-word ball and chain that resumes have been subjected to.

I’m a square peg in a round hole type of person anyway. DM me and I’ll have the jargon version and a first go at the colorful version ready to go. Let’s try it with yours also.
