Fuck that. Interview for a position commensurate with your experience. Otherwise you are beginning negotiations at a disadvantage hoping to just get somewhere near your true worth

At what level are they making you do that bullshit

I'm a sr con now. The position is advertised at a lower level but I will be negotiating that for sure (they've already said they're open to negotiating).

Where are you interviewing? What do you do now?

@BAH1 - interviewing at ECG. I do analytics now. I'm fed tho. Interviewing for commercial. @EY4 - I'm fine where I'm at with BAH, so If they don't meet my terms during negotiations, I'll be walking out.

Not that I've seen. Solid shop, just small and specialized (healthcare).

Hi y’all. So I haven’t technically onboarded for my firm yet, I’m suppose to start in 3 weeks. One of the projects I’m going to be put on requested to have a little interview with people of the team so I had mine today. The “interviewer” didn’t really seem to think I was qualified for this project at the end of the conversation (agree to disagree with him on that). Regardless, am I in trouble for not fitting his criteria/selling myself enough…kinda worried on my manager’s response….

I had an interview where I was asked “what can an innovative project manager bring that a normal PM doesn’t?” When I asked for clarification, they said how would a PM in the finance industry different from one in the Internet industry? It felt like a bizarre question, what are you thoughts?

Recently got an MBB offer. Really excited about it but start date isn’t until mid-March. How long should I wait to give notice to my current employer? It’s a large, well-known tech company but our team is pretty small and my departure will definitely cause a bit of chaos in the short term. Don’t want to burn any bridges, but at the end of the day I also know they’ll be fine. Thoughts on giving standard 2-weeks vs a bit longer, say 4?
