Do people at Junior Levels not lead meetings in industry? I just got asked if I had that experience during an interview. I have to lead a meeting/lead a portion almost everyday. So it’s weird that I would get asked this question.

I didn’t even get invited to meetings in industry. They were for the important people only.

No. Vast majority of companies, unless you’re a manager or senior manager (industry titles) you’ll either be invited to observe only or won’t be in the room at all.

Had presented to client CIOs and was leading engagement with startups. This was when I was working as an analyst (with 1 YOE) with a German conglomerate, which is traditionally very bureacratic.

Eh it depends. Used to work in industry and i went to more meetings, face time and interaction with the business than i do now.

I had a major client interview scheduled for today with a very sr client for potential job- it has taken forever to book. An hour before the meeting my Internet went out. I live in a remote area so I don’t have cell service (my husband was out running errands so no car to drive anywhere). I missed the interview and had to followup when it got back on. We rescheduled for wed but I’m pretty horrified. Sent apologies with weak explanation of Internet. How to handle when we finally speak?

Hi Ladies! I’m transitioning to a manager of a team I’ve been leading. There’s been a lot of turnover with the team and I feel like I’m having a hard time getting the team to see me more as an authoritative figure. For example, when I ask for volunteers on a simple task, no one replies. Should I just resort to assigning rather than asking? Also are there leadership books you suggest that I could read up on? Thank you!
