Do not have a personal computer so have been using my work computer for new job search activities like updating my resume and sending networking emails (using my personal email). When it comes to scheduling zoom interviews, do I just take them on my company laptop?

I know that they have the ability to track all of this and maybe they are…but I feel like I don’t care enough to shell out the money for a personal computer. Also feel like for interviews, I don’t want to use a new device that I am not comfortable with. Am I painfully naive? Is seeing that I’m in the job market grounds for termination? They definitely don’t seem to track my activity too closely to date, but I am worried that having zoom meetings with people outside my organization probably triggers a red flag in the system

Please don’t use your work computer for zoom interviews. That sounds like a really bad idea. If you really don’t want to get a new computer, you could zoom interview from your phone. Get a phone stand and practice the set up beforehand to make sure you are well framed. Or do you have a tablet you could use?

What is your why ? PE / Growth / HF jobs are super hard, demanding, stressful, long hours.

Am in the middle of interview process for quite a big job, and wondering what drives me… I’m competitive but beyond that I don’t see much.

Hi all - so I had an interview with salesforce in the sales strategy and ops group. Had the final round about a couple weeks and haven’t heard anything.
