Going to get my MBA this December. I have over 10 years experience implementing software. Why do I only get contacted for analyst positions? Management has been my goal, what do I tell these recruiters? Thanks!

Reach out to recruiters before they reach out to you and tell them what type of position you are interested in. That's what I would do.

I'd do the same– or associate yourself with people or an environment that can help you reach this position. Make friends and start gathering referrals for management.

Maybe your resume needs to be optimized. I was having similar issues and I hired someone on Upwork. Made a huge difference.

I recommend getting your resume edited by a professional and letting them know that you aim for a management position. www.prsnbranding.com does a great job with resumes.

Hi all
Looking for advice for one of my friends
She is about to get an offer from a company but she lied to that company about the notice period.
Actual: 3months
Told to company: 2months
She had to do such a thing as she wasn’t getting any interviews whenever she mentioned 3months notice period.
Now to get an offer letter the company has asked for current company’s offer letter before sending the their offer letter.
So should she forge the document to say 2months or should she tell the truth?
