I have built social media and influencer programs for starts up for the last 8 years. I recently had a very unprofessional experience recently going through an interview process. I had 3 rounds of interviews already, did an amazing case, my last interview was scheduled with the CMO, the day before the interview I am told that the CMO wants someone who has big brand experience like Taco Bell or Nike. It blew my mind because this is a start-up too & that my qualifications don’t even matter.
I have an interview coming up for BirchStreet Systems as a technical account manager - anyone have any tips they can share on what to expect?

Hello! I have 9 years total of healthcare experience and 5 years of that I was a Residential supervisor for a brain injury rehabilitation. I don’t have a degree only college credits I’m trying to obtain a Psychology degree. I’ve been applying to countless jobs on Indeed and barely get an call backs for an interview.

Hey All. I had my 2nd round interviews for a Lead Solution Engineer role at Salesforce on Monday (2 days ago). It was w/ 2 separate SEs, and I thought both interviews went very well. Have yet to hear from the recruiter, though, which seems odd. Especially given how responsive the recruiter's been prior to this.
Is that normal? Do I just need to be patient or should I mentally prepare for a rejection? Thanks!
So I was a municipal attorney for approximately 3 years and I did a lot of contracts, I see a lot of contracts counsel/contracts manager attorney positions. Am I out of my mind for applying to these? I have the general contract negotiation process pretty down, and I'm open to learning more about contract negotiation and such.
I recently got interviewed at Salesforce for position of Lead Automation Solutions Engineer and they extended an offer. FYI,I did some initial negotiation and the package looks like this;
Total Pkg - 255K(Base - 136K,MBO - 9K,Commision - 49K,RSU - 60K/4year).
Is there any room for negotiation or did I already hit the roofline?
Appreciate the insights. Thanks.

Imagine you're looking for a remote job at a large company with a sophisticated marketing function, strong manager, and room for growth. Making good traction, but then you're contacted by a company in a niche that FASCINATES you...like you read books about this subject for fun, you'd probably love this job. It's remote, the salary is good, the manager is nice, but you'd be the most senior marketing person; the company is about 200 people. What would you do?

Hi! I’m looking to make a career pivot and found the perfect internal position to transfer to, but my company’s HR team won’t release me until I’ve been in my current position for 1 yr.

Does anyone find it sad that it’s on the news more about students committing suicide from not being able to attend school then from students who are being bullied to the point they commit suicide?

My company will be doing holiday party this year! It’s been three years since I went to a legit holiday party 🤣 I have been spoiled by past parties at the wardolf Astoria or tavern on the green and my last employer had really bad parties - think crappy dinner at a chain restaurant or white elephant exchange in the office. I am not making sense …
I worked as a Treasury Payment Coordinator for 5.5 years, my WPM is over 66 with no errors and I can consistently answer over 200 emails a day, with great KPI scores. In August I was let go with no warning, citing “budget cutbacks” but they kept my teammate with low scores on everything. I’m looking for something new now but all I come across online is scam job posts. How do I apply with a legitimate company, how do I protect myself from spam?
Any ladies work in FinTech? Interested in what your salary is. I work for an insurance carrier but manage our relationships with our platform partners, manage firm relationships to leverage those FinTech partners, do training/webinars, create marketing, develop strategy, collaborate across multiple internal business partners to create opportunities while also being the SME for the platforms. My job is so new and so random? That it is hard for me to determine what my true worth is.
Would you say this was unprofessional, or would you have done the same? I was called out to present on a call mon night on which I got humiliated with questions: such as why are you telling us this, what even is this that you are sharing, kept getting cut off to explain myself. I was of course the only woman in the meeting. I literally cried after that’s how awful I felt. So today, similar call was scheduled, I just rejected, said I had something urgent come up and didn’t go.

I quit my job at a bank call center (MF dealer) didn’t give out a 2 weeks. I’m finishing up my licenses and school starts in 2 weeks. I’m 22 with 3 years of banking experience, 1.5 years of investment associate experience. Do you think that leaving without giving a notice will follow me in the future? It’s a call center, and I was not able to control my schedule so we always got it 2-3 weeks in advance but couldn’t plan ahead. Will school/scheduling be a good excuse if my next employer asks?

Do you have experience? Education alone doesnt cut it for Toronto, it’s very competitive. Asset management means you would either require IFIC, CSC/CPH, CIM or CFA as you’d have to do trading as an assistant or associate. There are a lot of opportunities but you’re probably going to start with an entry level job if you have less than 2-3 years of relevant experience.
Also, What would be the best way to network/ talk to people in the industry? And what value could a newcomer possibly provide that would warrant the connection?
