What are realistic career paths for BDRs that do not want to be an account executive? I have been a BDR for 4 years now and looking to get out of sales but unsuccessful so far . I’ve interviewed for social media roles, BDR manager roles , always falling short on what they are looking for. Beginning to think I’ll just have to accept a career that I hate that brings me no passion and try for AE role. My ideal role would be in product marketing or social. Any advice?
In house interviews:
I finished a final round of interviews and was expecting a final decision after the interviews. Rather than yes or no, the recruiter told me that the feedback is positive but they need to interview one more candidate to compare since I am the first one interviewed. And they wanted to add one more meeting with their new team member starting next week. Is this common and what’s the best way to deal with this unexpected message? Thanks!
I’m sitting in Bryant Park if anyone wants to give me an impromptu interview or wants me to do some freelance writing for you.
Had a phone interview today and Hiring Manager was out for a walk. It was raining and I could hear cars passing by. She had the audacity to tell me it was hard to hear me. Like WTF.
I just finished a case study for a boutique restructuring consulting firm and it felt impossible. Is it me or it was designed to feel that way? Objective was 3 statement model, 2 years historical 3 years projected. Send in excel + ppt in 5 hours. I was given a 10k (which btw is NOTHING like the easy 3 statement models online). I saw accounts that I’ve never heard of. wtf do I do with forex, deferred income tax, amortization of deferred lease credits on the cash flows?? Background audit then FDD.

I have an interview with them for an associate manager role but they're saying starting salary is 75K which is fairly low for a role that requires 5+ years of experience and reports directly to the AVP, any idea what I could potentially negotiate to? Also what's the hybrid work policy at CTC and any idea on potential changes to it?

My interview process could not proceed because of the HR. Was expecting an update for my final round and upon following up couple times, I was finally told that they sent me an email which never went through. As a result, they proceeded with a new person (bc I didn’t reply back to them). I feel very disappointed. The HR did apologize but I am not sure what to do now. Thoughts?
It is normal for tech companies (Uber, Cisco etc. ) to ask for detailed analysis and presentations during initial rounds? Looks like the teams are either made up of former consultants who aren’t allowed to conduct case interviews or the teams just don’t trust the candidates enough to figure out things via conversations. Or am I missing something? I dropped out of interviews from a couple of companies because the number of rounds/materials they were asking was insane.

In just 6 weeks I’ve gone from a consistent top performer to probably being a borderline bottom-tier contributor. Hate what I’m doing, and my motivation has hit the floor after 3 internal interviews to change roles have fallen through. I’m in industry, not consulting anymore. Just venting, thanks for listing
Why didn’t someone have a case study round for a president rather than the stupid written speeches they give (written by someone else)... they should be tested for IQ, presence of mind & ability.
Hi All, My current employer is filing i140 which should be approved in 15 days with premium processing. However, I intend to change employer after it. It says that one should wait for at least 180 days once I 140 is approved. What happens if I change employer after 180 days and still my current employer revokes my approved I 140 ? Is this possible? What I should do in that case?
I feel like this chat is all dudes lol

Anyone else finds it annoying when you’re forced to work with a director that no-one else wants to work with?
Socially you get along with them and would consider them as a friend. Still, professionally they're a nightmare, they lack in substantial experience in delivery, and their knowledge is outdated and not relevant to the programme.

Fear of being laid off (at 50) is so all enveloping that it’s affecting my health and sleep, and probably my job performance. I have a pot in my stomach all the time. Sitting alone at home (single) knowing if I’m on the list I’ll never get hired again. And not enough savings for the next three years let alone forty. Fuck

Is Salesforce on a hiring freeze for all positions? I feel like I still see postings for openings going up?
I’m going to be making an exit soon to a company that’s working hard to recruit me in. I’m in an AE position. I’d be forfeiting $18k in RSUs vesting, President’s club, and $200k+ in pipeline if I do move. I’m inclined to leave because this would be a step up in a role and I really like the team.
My question is: is it reasonable to ask for a $40k sign on bonus to account for what I’m leaving here? How do you go about negotiating that?
