Is anyone else noticing an up-tick in no shows to meetings? I swear it’s worse when the client has booked with me vs the other way around.

I’m in investment sales, noticing the same thing. I’m attributing it to the craziness in the markets over the past few weeks. Even having multiple people who were ready to move forward back out at the last minute

Yes. Set up a session with our customer's lead executive for an upsell conversation and he ghosted on us.

Ugh that’s the worst

Yes. In my industry, it partly tax deadlines and partly that people are still taking vacation, if I had to guess.

Yes. I hate that feeling. Especially if they ghosted you without any valid reason.

Looking for advice on this conversation. First negotiation attempt ever! I’ve been in my role for 1 year. Promoted in from corporate recruiting, 5 years of experience there. No degree, just hard work and dedication.
1) A raise. Currently at $65K, which is about $10K lower than the bottom of the salary range.
2) Title change. My title is Global Total Rewards Project Manager. I design and manage our TR strategy for 17 different countries, and I feel like my title is a little misleading.
Thanks!

Hi all,

My joining is on 23rd may. What to expect on day 1 of onboarding. do we get project interview calls directly ?
My question is I have been interviewed for BA role and JD mentioned dynamics 365 but I don't have experience in that. i was interviewed about core BA concepts and my role in project. I have understood the concepts of dynamics 365 during my NP. so now project interviews will be based on previous experience in projects or this new one ? Please help me understand.

P1.Currently work as a sales associate who makes minimum wage in CA ($15) but is always available for more hours, I am always reliable to my job when needed. They soon asked me to be a key holder, temporarily with no pay raise. I would be opening and closing the store and registers as well as handling money in the safe. I would also still have my obligations as a sales associate. . After researching online, I asked for temporary pay raise of $2 which allowed my manager to negotiate if needed…

Side projects are one-liners on my resume. Should I use a given director title on one if I wasn't really a director? Got the title because we were incorporating and CEO wanted to formalize for the future. But only 3 part time reports, and even then we were all volunteers and very low effort.

Thinking of keeping it for the talking point, but using quotes to show that I know it was silly. The single resume line would read...

- Marketing "director" at XYZ. Did ABC with DEF.
