How do I get a job as an HR Generalist in a tech company? I’ve been applying for full remote jobs for tech companies but all I get is daily rejections emails. My current and past HR experience are in aerospace, restaurant group and mobile retailer. Is there anything I can change on my resume that lets them know I can transition well into the tech industry as an HR professional?

Your industry probably isn’t the problem. It may be how you’ve structured your job duties on the resume. Look at the JD and grab keywords to make you stand out. Also, look at smaller companies, it’s harder to get in the bigger companies. Many have said that once you’ve had certain companies on your resume, they’ll start reaching out to you. Maybe even reach out and connect with HR people on LI at the companies you’re targeting.

Agree with this… align your experience and achievements to more progressive disciplines of HR to secure a match for tech.

Idealy: HR degree and relevant masters. Or Business undergrad with HR masters. You will then walk in with a maybe 2 years experience.
Alternatively, you can start as a HR admin and HR Coordinator with 3 or 4 years experience with a small certificate in HR and that could work.

Don't go Facebook , they are culty and souless.

What’s also helpful is to search for alumni on LinkedIn that current work at your dream employer. Reach out to them to learn a bit more of the culture and to provide any pointers for attaining an opportunity and they’ll perhaps extend a referral for you.

Had my L-1A blanket interview last week in Dubai. I-129 was stamped, approved and returned, but DS-160 status shows Admin Processing. It has technically been only 2-3 business days because of the Eid holiday last week, but any idea if there is cause for concern? The officer said visa is approved and I should have my passport back this week. Wondering if AP is just their placeholder status or is there anything that could be wrong? Any advice from people who had a similar experience would be great

I’m a senior with over 8 YoE, I have been doing SQL, python and tableau. Was managing engagements sometimes as a junior product manager and sometimes as a team lead. I want to move out of consulting but the whole interview process intimidates me and I feel I don’t know anything or have no skills. I’m feeling listless and depressed with my current job. Anyone who moved out as a product manager or a data scientist/engineer/analyst? Looking for someone who can guide me! Thank you!

Let me know If anyone is interested or has questions about Secure On-Set Remote Video Streaming or the new On-Set Protocols that I experienced on the 3 commercials I’ve just finished in Los Angeles. I’ve been doing On-Set Remote Streaming for 3 years, and Video Playback (VTR) for 19 years mostly on Commercials in LA. The new norm is quite different.

Those of you who have returned to working in the office, do you notice your motivation and overall liking of your job going back to normal? Or did WFH just help you realize you didn’t like your job?

I started at a V40 firm around the beginning of the year, and it’s quickly become clear that meaningful, substantive opportunities aren’t available to the associates because the partners are hoarding all the work. The people are nice, but I’m concerned that spending too much time at this firm without getting any competitive experience will end up hurting me in the long run. When is too soon for me to consider looking for another opportunity?

Just promoted to M1 in Michigan. Base salary is now $88,300 (+4% bonus of $3k for total of $91,300). Wondering how this compares to others out there, and if I should be happy or disappointed, lol.

A company I just got a verbal offer from gave me numbers. The total comp did not include stock/RSU so was under my base salary. When they asked me for my comp, I went for my base + avg year bonus with a 15% kicker.

Mentioned that was too high, won't be able to go there but will circle back. Then ended with this:

"We have other candidates with great feedback so offer may not be there..."

That sounded like bad faith negotiation to me. What would you recommend I do?
