Promotions reduced due to covid and found out I’m being held back on my senior promotion (Canada). I’ve been on the fence about leaving for a while, and this may be it. Do you think it makes sense to take my accounting experience over to an FP&A role in terms of transferability? I feel like a lot of the analysis and excel / ppt skills transfer over, but it is a lit of tax knowledge to just leave behind.
I don’t care a ton about tax subject matter though
Approached for a role at Twitter as an L6. Non technical, more like a Senior Manager in Operations. Can’t seem to find L6 salary ranges anywhere. Any insight is appreciated!
I feel conflicted. For the entirety of last fiscal year I had been fighting for a fast track at DUSI even though I have been working exceptionally since day 30 in firm (~1.9Y), feel burned out nw. I was lowballed during hiring, market correction <10%, and emotionally exhausted fighting for fast track while working on a high visibility project. Finally, I got a promo and hike (40% + <10%) yet i don’t feel happy coz it seems overdue. Coworkers are ❤️ but feel greedy not as grateful as I should
I have an interview with Accenture India on Monday for a testing role. Can anyone help me with expected questions. I have 4 YoE.

Has anyone applied for a job where they have evidently not met the required years of experience but reading the responsibilities they feel they are capable of accomplishing them?
Currently looking at a position that I am 1 year of direct experience away from and 3 years of generalised experience in the field. I think my education and previous “touch on” experience shows my capability in the role/field but my current role I am in doesn’t align to this job at all.
Any stories or resume tips?
I have overdelivered the agreed results of 2021 my entire year. 100% of my stakeholder gave increasingly great feedback in my 360, includding my peers.
Yesterday I've learned that my "rating" was "meets expectation" and my promotion was refused, and immediately learned that a colleague with "ok" performance (based on stakeholder feedback) got the role... I'm 2years in this role and thinking about resign, I don't think I'll grow here anymore. 😪Johnson & Johnson
Hi Fishes, How is Eurofins IT Solutions India Pvt. Ltd for career growth,work life balance,increments and exit opportunities? I can see mixed reviews in Glassdoor and Ambition Box.... This is my first switch and I am planning to stay for atleast 4 years(P.S. This is the first product based firm in my career)
One thing I struggle to remind myself of is you can only lose so much from a bad investment but gains from a good investment are (sorta) unlimited. If your starting position is $10,000 and the value halves, you're down $5,000. But if the value of a separate position doubles, you're now up a total of $5,000.
I think learning this will help me reach my FIRE goals by eliminating a lot of emotion and impulse in my investment decisions.
What other "life lessons" do any of you have?
Hi everyone! I’m really passionate about 3 UX positions, one at AllTrails, one at Bright Cellars, and one at Mercari. Does anyone know of anyone that can get me a referral at any of those?
Hi fishes! Looking for a referral for PwC for some Senior Coms Associate or Coms Manager roles. 5 years of experience, 2 years of big agency experience, + extra writing credentials. Based in Detroit & looking to make the jump from agency life to in-house. Thank you!
Hello Respected Novartis fishes,
I don't want to sound repetitive but do we have any updates on the hiring process re-opening?
My offer letter is still stuck into it and I am not able to get to a decision.
Having around 2.5 Exp as Business Analyst. Looking for better opportunity. If anyone could share any openings or referrals that would be great!
Has anyone made the jump from full time to contract and can advise on what to look out and advocate for? Recruiter has a role that seems to be a good fit with Capital One but it’s a 6mo contract.
Why do firms care about diversity and inclusion from a business / marketing perspective? Aside from (1) keeping in line with public/market tenor, (2) recruiting summers, and (3) ticking off the D&I requirements of certain clients vis a vis their service providers, is there anything else I'm missing?

Recommendations for firms to look into in South FL? I'm in Ft. Lauderdale but am open to Boca or Miami. I'm a first year associate in ID (coverage issues) but really would prefer transactional work. More importantly though, I'm looking for companies who pay relatively well (doesn't necessarily have to be market), are open to remote/hybrid work, aren't sweatshops. I'd settle for insurance work if theres good WLB & $$$ lol

Random question on health insurance and retirement if anyone has experience or input to offer.

I really like my mentor at work but I am getting a few strange vibes from him. He seems to remember everything I mention about my private life, when we do career catch ups he just wants to talk about what’s been happening with me life wise/ we never get onto anything serious, and he seems oddly preoccupied with my workout regime (I mentioned I go paddle boarding sometimes and he now asks me whether I have been paddle boarding routinely). I don’t know if it’s because he’s awkward, but it’s odd

Joined Industry few months back, been doing Global PMO work ever since. Work has been super chill but not stimulating at all, meaning all I do every day is to adjust formats, propose trackers and collaborate with stakeholders, I have no direct authority over anyone. I just received an offer from FAANG with much more challenging work, but it might translate to worse WLB. Should I make the move?

Looking for a strategy exit in Europe. 🐠🐟 in Europe - any recruiters you have found success working with?
FYI - 8 YoE total, half in Tier2 Strat house, half in corporate strategy, not an EU citizen.
Got laid off for pretty f’ing questionable reasons. Hard not to take it personally when I invested so much blood sweat & tears into the clients and the D&I culture. Ah well - off to bigger & better!

Does an offer letter need to be countersigned by the employer? I got the copy back with my signature but when I reached out to HR they mentioned the signature line is assigned to employees only. Is this normal practice since it’s employment at will in the US?
Would any of you choose Amazon over other FAANG or even tier 2 tech? all my friends working there hate it and seems like comp lags behind other FAANG unless you account for stock appreciation.
