Do I need to have a strategy portfolio when I am applying to jobs? Most applications have an optional box to put a link, but I’d rather bring examples of my work to the interview

I’ve never submitted a portfolio because the work is all under NDA. My CV speaks to the work. And then I’ll show samples IRL.

Hi! I am in the interview process for a channel manager position internally with my company. Currently I am in outside sales and get a company vehicle that I use for personal use (gas, insurance and maintenance included with a small monthly fee). The new role would mean giving up the benefit. What % salary increase can I expect with the offer? I don't want to fall back financially. My rent has also increased 10%. I'd hate to think the added responsibilities would result in an income loss for me

Hi recruiters!
I recently quit my job at a big tech company with good name for a better job at a younger but still famous tech company. Now, 3 months later I’m not sure that the new role is as interesting as they sold it to me. I know I have to give it sometime and talk to my manager (I have shared my concerns with him), but precisely because of his answers, now I’m considering looking for another job. I truly want to be in a role with lots of impact. How should I apply to jobs? Cont in comment

Hello, I'm new here, I want to see opinions. Several days ago I was contacted by a hospital recruiter here in Florida. The position is patient financial rep. When I am in the interview, the salary part arrives. She asked me how much i earned at my current job and I innocently told her. I made a serious mistake, she only offered me 75 cents more than I made an hour at my current job which is temporary. My interview with the managers is this Wednesday. Do you think I should negotiate ?

Anyone here familiar with the hiring process of KPMG consulting in Van? Had a partner interview on Nov 21, thought the feedback was positive but haven't heard back yet (no rejection/offer). Is it something normal or the interview just didn't go as well as I thought?

It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.

Thanks in advance!
