I am an office coordinator at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and want to break into the field of research. MSK has research coordinator roles, however when I initially applied after graduating, I didn’t get any interviews. I have minimal experience with research from undergrad. I’m not sure if it is possible to switch roles within MSK. I also want to go back to school for an MPH. Anyone have any experience with this or any tips?

BUT they still want to work with me.

Any insights on FromYouFlowers? I interviewed for them, but they don't have a lot of online presence (Glassdoor reviews are all from Customer service) so it's been hard to research them.
What does it mean when you apply to a bunch of jobs for which I am a good fit and you hear nothing back for these jobs? For some applications, I'm approaching two weeks since submission. I did get a call back to the first position I applied to; however, after the lab manager saw how much experience I had he said to release me, far too overqualified, tell him he should be applying to Senior Research Associate positions. I have ten years lab experience.

Anyone else guilty of poisoning new hires viewpoints?? Some of em just asked me so many questions and I wanna be honest with them.
Like sorry Timmy pls don’t ask me “what happens when ‘politics’ come up in the work place” on a call of 30 other new hires next time so I don’t have to say that “we basically let our bosses say that we don’t talk about politics then he proceeds to talk about politics and then we talk about politics”.
(The hiring committee person literally cut me off after this 🤣)
Anyone with a Tesla in Austin, where did you guys go to register your car? The paper Tesla gave me says to go to the Department of Motor Vehicles but a review on their website says they had to go to a Tax Assessor office. I specifically asked for Tesla because Tesla is not a Legal Dealer in Texas and I don’t know if that makes a difference.
How’s the agency scene in SF, big or small shop? Have experience at both ends of the spectrum in NYC but looking for new opportunity and lifestyle change. Anyone from NYC make the switch?
In this terribly slow job market, would you accept an offer even if it is not a great offer (mediocre comp, benefits)? Then how bad is it to keep interviewing and accept another offer a few months into the job? I know it’s not an ideal thing to do and you will burn some bridges, but companies won’t hesitate to do the same to you, so you still gotta take care of yourself?
My mom died 6 years ago. For some reason this is the hardest Mother’s Day. Previous years didn’t really affect me as much.

Is it super petty of me to keep calling and generally bugging potential clients when they ghost me and refuse to respond? To be clear, this is a policy I reserve for people who get way deep into the process, let we’re about to sign contracts, and then they just vanish.
What's the minimum amount of time you should stay at a job before job hopping? (So it doesn't look bad on your resume)

For KPMG, it was pretty easy for audit associate interview, just typical behavior questions and ask you about your resume/background.
PwC has been diving more in technology and “tech-enabling” the audit. I would research more into that and probably ask about the direction of where audits are going.
Don’t do them.
I think the general trend of the big 4 audit is incorporating more offshore resources (service delivery centers in countries like India) to perform work. You can also pose a question as to how that will impact your role coming on as an audit professional as that’s was definitely a concern of PwC when I was there
You want to emphasize your talent and skills and why you would be a valuable team member (especially during busy season) but also show your personality a little. I had managers tell me they don’t want to hire someone with no personality
