I have given my final round of interview in Akamai with hiring manager who is from US on 6th July. How long should i wait before I reach out to my HR team for status ?
The MCK Recruiter had me apply for a EM job and got me signed up for the 'Interviewing at MCK' session. It was supposed to follow with the first round but after telling her i was ready i haven't heard for over 3 weeks. Any thoughts on what could be happening? Prioritizing other candidates? Or delay in hiring? I know they lost a couple projects/clients in the line of work i applied for.

I have an opportunity to go into the private sector side, as well a second interview for another municipality doing same job. Private sector job will pay 35,000 more but will be 3 hrs away my husband is in law enforcement and can’t leave due to his position. Concerns are: private sector and when recession hits, it’s construction, away from hubby

Have you thought about why PM interview experience is totally different than the actual PM job ?

I’m applying to B schools and MBB / other jobs all together this year and wondering if mentioning that I’m LGBT and involved in my company’s Out network makes sense. Is that something that will looked upon favourably? Chance of it backfiring?
I have a job offer I'm considering and everyone I've spoken to in interviews has been great. But the recruitment process itself was clunky, slow, and not applicant-friendly. Does that indicate my experience working there will be bad? Or is it more important to look at the actual content of the interviews, which was good? For context, the company is owned by an equity firm and it seems like some of the bureaucracy is coming from them.

Hello! I'm currently working at a retail store as my primary source of income. I'm trying to leave for a career that I had been working on as a side job. I'm a social media manager and a content creator, which includes being a self-published author. I'm trying to find a job that is similar to what I do. I feel like my retail experience is holding me back. I've revamped my resume and created a portfolio. What do I need to do to get that interview and potentially get hired?
Trying to decide if it's worthwhile to take a job at Google in the bay area. I didn't research anything about levels before hand. I have 15+ years. Started off the phone screen as L5 (which went horrible), after which they said I can do the onsite as L4 (which went great). But again they said they will only now consider me as L3. First team interview went well.
Should I relocate for effectively the same base pay but more expensive city? Is it likely I'll get promoted to L5 eventually?

Red flags in a portfolio?
Do you think you’re any good? Find it interesting that some creatives think they’re the best while others think they’re god awful. Why do we do that?
Hi, I have a potentially ignorant question: do you have to be black to work as a music writer at BET?
Portfolio question- have you shown pitch work, especially if your concept got sold in (and regardless of how it then evolved to the final product)?
Asking as I’ve been pitching more than launching lately and still wanting to show ability/accomplishments for this time. Thanks.
I love Anselmo Ramos. His advice on LinkedIn feels spot-on with the current trend in advertising. Has anybody worked for him? What is he like as a person? Thoughts on him as a creative?
If you get your hands at a CC you will be able to use it the same way you use the CS6. The biggest difference is that adobe messed up a few shortcuts. For instance proportional scale is now the default on photoshop and you have to hold shift for non-proportional but on indesign and illustrator is different. Who knows why they did that but you can manually change your shortcuts anyways.
But I highly recommend you to figure out all the new tools and improvements ASAP because you are really missing out, photoshop selection by subject for instance really speeds the workflow.
Pick a trial version and go over all the major changes since CS6.
That’s good to know. Thank you. I will push my manager to get the CC, if not I will have to pay it for myself on my personal laptop. I don’t want keep falling behind..:/
Will you ever have to exchange files back and forth? For editing (premiere) I have to be up to date because often times we need to give projects back and forth and they aren’t compatible. This hasn’t ever come up in an interview but I wouldn’t actually be able to do my job with CS6.
I truly feel Adobe makes file formats incompatible with older versions on purpose, to force people into their subscription-only business model.
It won’t be an issue. Some things have gotten easier but most of the “new” features as far as a designer goes I have turned off, especially anything cloud-based. They’re a nuisance IMO.
Been using Adobe products for over 27 years straight. I kept my CS6 on an older home machine because I refuse to pay a subscription. I use CC at work. The new CC versions are 95% the same as CS6. Adobe got LAZY once they went subscription-only. You’ll be fine. The majority of new features are really just rehashes of older features that you already know. They’re something you can learn in a few minutes. But most of the new little features you don’t even really need to learn anyway. The bulk of what you need to know have been around for literally decades.
The only truly new thing that wasn’t there before is Adobe XD. If you know Sketch or Figma, you’re already halfway there. I’d do a crash course on XD then.
As others mentioned, it’s not significantly different and there’s always Google! You’ll be fine, I don’t see how an employer would ever know.
Also, CC does a free week trial if you wanna play around with it for a week before and get used to the adjustments
