Received an offer from a top 15 firm to join their TAS practice, but have a rotation opportunity at B4. I know B4 typically looks better, but is there really that big of a difference in potential exit ops? Trying to decide which route to take.
I’m working as a Senior PM in a third company in a row (moved from seed stage to scale up to big tech). Those were great moves, but each time I feel I need to prove the exact same point about my competence. The move upwards seems impossible. There were 2 separate events in which I could’ve jumped up to a GPM/principal role, in both I got turned down despite stellar feedback and practically performing the role in the interim. How not to get burned out by that?
I interviewed with the hiring manager on Monday and she really liked me and I liked her. On Tuesday I interviewed with the VP who is my bosses boss. That same day, I interviewed with the CMO. I was very tired at that point since it was 8:30 pm and then had been interviewing all day with this company and several others. The thing that threw me off was that the CMO seemed cold and she wouldn’t take off her her COVID mask. Not sure why since she was the only one in the room. Is this a red flag?
Has anyone accepted an offer only a few of weeks after starting a new role? How did you hand in your notice? Keen to do so and not burn any bridges in case I want to join again in a few years

Reposting from HR bowl: I’ve heard there is a hiring boom, especially for L&D roles. I was let go recently from a toxic environment (removed the company from everything) after only 4 days of work. I’m actively job searching but not receiving ideal hits. I see a lot of senior level L&D roles but not as many for specialist roles, specifically in tech. I have 5.5 years of experience. Any advice for me? I’m also seeking therapy for the trauma & coping, now ready for securing that next role!
