I had an interview scheduled on Friday 2nd Dec for Teradata developer. I completed my technical interview. Interviewer told me he would connect with me soon. I wanted to know how many rounds of interview would be there?

What's London agency life like? Currently based in Amsterdam. I have the ambition to grow career wise and hear it happens faster in LDN.
I feel like the associates that I work with are redundant, adding little to no value to the work being done. Anyone else feel similarly?
So I have an Associates in CS from the now defunct ITT Tech (I was young and dumb fresh out of high school when I enrolled) and now I'm at the point that I want to earn my bachelor's. But of course enrolling back at my previous school is no longer an option. So I'm stuck on either seeing if my transcript will be accepted at a Devry type for-profit, or starting over entirely. I'm just trying to get some thoughts on what others would do in this type of situation.
Im not from Computer science. I did mechanical engineering but and currently working in telecom industry with 4 yoe. I see a lot of opportunities in IT industry. Can anyone suggest any good tech that can be learned to get into IT industry and will there be any scope since im changing domain from totally different industry? And will it be difficult to land a job?
Setting aside dry January (for those who partake), how many days per week do you consume alcohol? What day (before today) was the last day you consumed zero alcohol? For those working from home, what is the earliest you have started drinking on a work day? (Any difference on Fridays?)

Been passed over for promotion twice before and this year was the 3rd time. Luckily, I got it. Was in a dark space since I’m single, there’s covid and firm said “may not promote bc of covid” so went to therapy also because, single and cheated. Mentioned to coach(counselor) that I was nervous and anxious and had to take therapy. He said I should learn not to take things to heart. Ever since, started regretting mentioning about therapy. Should I have handled this a different way?
How long does your kids Daycare stay close if a Covid case is detected?
Ours in NYC closes down for 5 days in addition to the requirement to show a negative test after Day 3.
I've been working in a manufacturing start-up for the last 6 years and currently the Plant General Manager. I've worn a lot of hats within operations here including inventory management, onboarding new suppliers, logistics, importing, and purchasing. I would like to leverage my experience to get into Supply Chain management. What are the skills and experience I should show and discuss in interviews to make the pivot? Also, in your experience, is this something I could do and work from Asia?
Mom and daughter date to center city to see the nutcracker on Saturday. Early dinner recommendations?
New billing year, new me! 🎉
Cushman & Wakefield Interested in a Sales Associate position at Cushman & Wakefield. I have experience as a government analyst for 7 years but nothing related to commercial real estate. I want to become a more competitive applicant but not sure where to start. Are there any certificates, skills, or knowledge that I should be learning in my free time?
A2. Many folks are leaving my group, more recently As who’ve been here for <1 yr and went for startups. For those searching, at what point did you seriously start looking for exit ops? Signs to leave?

BEST or WORST ECD/CCO in London? GO! 👏🏽
Any idea why Campaign hasn't featured any articles about D&AD or One Show? First I thought it might be against awards this year, but they're making a big fuzz about their own Campaign awards —which no one cares about.
Legit question. How many people end up poor and old working on advertising? I mean what happens to the over 50s not on the C suite
Top 15 Agency (billings wise). Our CCO has told the creative dept the North Star for 2022 is awards. More specifically, Cannes. Forget New Business, client growth, client needs, sustainability, purpose. It’s silverware we need. For any accounts or strategy person, this is the shite we have to put up with. That’s how our careers grow and progress. So the next time we push for something ‘creative’ that’s why. Your career isn’t dependent on superficial crap. Ours is.
Are there any London agencies that have work/life balance? Eg normal hours. In the flip side, who are the worst offenders?
I’m an American based in New York with big and small agency experience, and have a UK passport through my dad. Lately I’ve been considering a move to the UK or Europe in general.
Are there any headhunter recos for that sort of thing? The one I’m working with now keeps sending me to startups 😬

What would you do / what are my rights ?
Been at an agency for over a year , survived a major round of redundancies last year but now being let go . The thing that confuse/grates me is that they claim it's a performance issue but all my written feedback was glowing. Is that even legal ?
Are there any good agencies with OK work-life balance? I recently had a child and don’t want to go back to nights and weekends.
What’s BMB like to work at?
Strategists. Anyone else feeling like the job as they knew it is extinct and we just make powerpoints and placate clients? All the interesting stuff about the role has gone.
