The Power of Personality Workshop

I wear my emotions on my sleeve, which I think is ultimately a good thing, but as a guy, I worry that I'll seem weak if I show too much emotion, positive or negative. Any tips on how to embrace this part of my personality in the professional setting?

Interview questions: it’s been a LONG time since I interviewed for a role. What’s a great question to ask the interviewer (besides the usual job specs and details)? I never know what to say...

Some of these posts are ridiculous. They’re like just exited consulting to FAANG/Niche Startup with $150k base and $400k TC with 6 months of experience,you can do it too! Then they ghost or explain that they are a former SWE 😬 coming from MBB. Going to some super Niche role that people with crazy backgrounds are recruited for. Congrats, but not everyone has that background

Have been working to land an FDD role for a little over 3 months. Now, I have a big network both internally and externally but haven’t even landed an interview yet. Any suggestions or advice on how to finally breakthrough to interviews and a transition? Seems like FDD hiring is slowly coming around...

Need advice, moms. My son is almost 2. I quit D to take a PM job at a client that I’m quite good at but it’s not totally satisfying - reason was really that I just needed time to be at home (contd)
