Has anyone ever been hired for a job you were definitely not qualified for? How did it go? I have been interviewing for a position with a higher title + different industry + different role than what I am doing today and somehow I keep moving on to the next round. Am I just imposter syndrome-ing myself or is this a bad idea?
Anyone could recommend me for a role as business analyst with WHOOP? Thank you in advance!
Got to final round interviews with a tech company back in March. They said they were very interested, but because of COVID they were closing the requisition with hopes of reopening it Sept. The position requires a lot of networking, conferences, and meetings, which would drive why the decided to put off the position. Have not heard anything from the company, is it a lost cause at this point?

Met a Wharton guy yesterday, he said I should change jobs at least once before applying since most of his classmates did more than 1 job. He recommended going to a startup for at least 1 year. I'm not sure since I feel like I've done many different "jobs" in consulting with different projects. Thoughts?

My entire career in HR has been on the job training and I have worked besides people with HR degrees doing the same things they do. What extra skills do you think your HR degree gives you that you wouldn't have without the degree?

Ladies - how do you make friends as you get older? My social circle has diminished over the years as people have gotten married, have kids and move to the suburbs. I’m the token single person and find it’s difficult to make new friends as an adult, especially with other women who are like minded - career, health and fitness oriented (& won’t revert to catty high school antics or drama).
