After reading my Monday post about my own career change, a reader asked: “What gave you the confidence to make those changes and help change your mindset?” 1. Daily meditation & writing about fears, gratitude, forgiveness, and wins shifted my perspectives. 2. Clarity on what my 1-3 year life plan looked like gave me a blueprint. 3. Interviewing people in roles that fit my blueprint gave me confidence I was on target. You can do this yourself, but a coach will get you there faster.

I’m being interviewed for an Associate Partner position. I’ve already been through 3 interviews with positive feedbacks. The recruiter informed me that they are willing to schedule 2 more interviews. Is this normal in IBM? It seems a very vague and slow process in my opinion…
Ok be honest, candidates. I really love this set of questions, I’ve been considering shifting my current interview style to these questions - I think they really give you an idea of who this person would be within the work setting. But the questions almost feel too deep for a recruiter to ask. What would you think if a recruiter took a different path and asked these questions instead of the usual ones? https://blog.shrm.org/blog/9-interesting-interview-questions-that-actually-reveal-a-lot-about-candidat

I met someone through a slack group on a job posting. We chatted, shared info and this person offered to be a referral on the posting on his team.

I am currently interviewing for a new higher at my current employer however, I also got an offer for a different company. I probably won’t here back about the role at my current employer for a couple of weeks but I don’t want to miss out on the opportunity especially if I don’t get new role. Is it bad form to put my two weeks in for the other company without first hearing back about the role at my current job? Would that deter them from moving forward with me if I happened to be the top choice?

Does anyone have any insights to the new job?
I have been doing SAP consulting with 10 years of experience in big scale implementations. A recruiter from Google had reached to me. I had a phone interview and just heard back from them.

I don’t know what is holding me back. What is Google looking for while filling their SAP roles?

Also appreciate anyone at McKinsey who does interview’s opinions and thoughts. TIA!

How hard is it to get a tech cofounder? I want to change the way the world lends when crypto is used as collateral. MVP involves building out api end points, building a portal and decision engine. No front end apps or web portals. I have a deck and have had meaningful conversations with money but it’s too expensive to buy everything from scratch to get started. Perhaps an outside team commercializing and scaling a prototype will be much more economical. Feedback?

Are treadmill desks and cycle desks harder for data scientists to use than general consultants? I want one but I would have to forgo the second monitor and I wonder if it will be harder for me because I’m coding sometimes, which might need more control than when writing email. I might be overthinking this though.
