Then they weren’t nice to begin with. Hold your head up above fake bitches, because they turn on everyone, and they’re in every agency. Speak up for yourself respectfully in meetings. Shine through it with a smile and keep your distance. Remind everyone its the work that matters.

Hi,
What should be my salary expectations from Credit Suisse AVP role at credit Risk Team.

YOE 8 years
Current 19 LPA
Offer In Hand 25 LPA

I have been on a job search for the last 6 months and getting nowhere. I have 15 years of experience in accounting and finance and then did a pivot for 7 years into procurement. I was looking to get back into finance and accounting and took a contract job as an analyst at a bank because I was being told by recruiters I need more relevant experience. Now I've been doing this for almost a year and can't get anywhere. I don't know what I am doing wrong. Any suggestions?

A major person in my professional field just asked to add me on LinkedIn. (I am not famous) I was in shock, excited for the notice, and of course accepted. Other than that, i thought it might be a good idea to drop him a note, so as to be remembered longer, and create a tighter connection, but am not sure what to say. Any one has ever done this or is it just stretching it too far? Any thoughts on what i could say?

I’ve recently come to realize, that while my boyfriend (or most men for that matter) maintain a network of people where they discuss their profession, economy, markets, emerging trends, job opportunities and pay scales, my own network of female friends has revolved around discussing fashion, men, kids, politics, work stress, health etc.
Has any one else felt this gap in their network, and what can be done to fill it?

I’ve been back in the office since April/May on a very limited basis, and what I’ve learned is that creatives and account people should not be placed in a covid-spaced conference room together for long periods of time. I’m not disparaging our account team - they are extremely smart and overall fantastic - but there’s a reason why one needs space from the other. It’s like putting two attack fish in a bowl.
