I got what was considered to be my ~dream entry level position~, at a company I really wanted to work for, and I’m 6-months in and am miserable. Team morale is so low, and 5 people have quit on my team since I started…

A dream job is a pipe dream. They dont really exist. But you can find a job you like enough and that provides the comp to live a good private life. That’s what people really need to find.

Are you me? Only difference is I’m not entry level. My plan is to stick this out for at least a year, then look for a jump. I’ve had crap jobs before and I know warning signs, but I’ve also stuck out crap for one year stints and companies and teams can improve. One year is my rule, then I actively look. Best of luck and know you aren’t alone!

I found an open role last night with an application deadline of today. The application requires proof of bar membership. The only way I know to do that is a Certificate of Good Standing, which I can’t get in a day. Other ideas? I do happen to have a certificate from a district court I was just admitted to, although it’s over 30 days old. TIA!

For those of you hiring in tech, how has it been looking for talent and filling roles? From what I’ve heard, entry level roles seem easy to fill but experienced roles are still really difficult to find talent for…..is that what everyone else is seeing?

Hello Fishes,

In QSC, HR told that the grade and the designation are similar world wide, so after 2-3 year I will be promoted to Senior Software role. QSC is offering 11% more salary then Siemens.

So beyond frustrated with this job market! Had an owner reach out about a CFO role last month, went through his ridiculous interview process spending ~10 hrs total. Only to be turned down due to “not enough experience”

He contacts me again weeks later - his Controller left during the search for CFO and now he has no finance dept. We talked and he wanted to extend an offer by EOW. Followed up after a week and he’d been introduced to another candidate, decided to go with her instead. What gives!?

For reference i chose the industry role over the MBB role, so i think I’d have a good shot at getting it again. Current hours and pay are great (new parent), but I’ve felt FOMO ever since and all the typical industry frustrations are present in my current role.
