I'm trying to get into a SaaS or tech company for MOps/RevOps/SOps, but I think I'm having trouble getting interviews because I'm coming from a 7-year career in the public sector (fundraising).
The work I do is very similar and I feel my resume reflects that, the main difference is my tech stack. I've started certifications for tools like Hubspot, Marketo, and Salesforce - and am wrapping up an MBA - wondering if anyone has any other advice on how to score an interview? TIA!

What's one thing you wish you could tell your younger self before buying a house in Seattle?
Random rant: I absolutely despise the skinny townhomes for $800K that they keep building here. Every single one we’ve toured doesn’t even have a full kitchen but cost the price of a mansion. Who is buying those and why are you creating a market for them?
Can anyone recommend the olympic athletic club?
Favorite co-working space in Seattle? While I love the comfort and efficiency of working from home I feel like getting out of the house and having a small commute will be good for me. What co-working spaces (cafes, we work or others) have you tried / would recommend?
How do you feel about Seattle and would you recommend moving here? Considering from DC - primarily for family reasons, although my family isn’t in WA, but it’s the closest American city to them in western Canada. I’ve lived in DC, Boston, NY for a decade, and appreciate good transit, walkability, great and diverse restaurants, etc. I’m fearful that I won’t like Seattle because it’s car-dependent, a bit more homogenous, etc. I love the mountains and outdoor activities but not in winter (cont’d)

We’ve liked a property in Lynnwood that’s close to the Edmonds community college. The proximity to I-99 is the only negative aspect as it’s generally considered unsafe. Folks in Lynnwood, WA- any first hand experiences of living around this neighborhood? Would really appreciate inputs as we go about making our purchase decision.
27 F moving to Seattle in late July from DC and looking for some neighborhood recommendations?

What are you expecting the people of Puget Sound to do and what are they actually doing?
Not at all. It’s a question to evaluate your expectations and reality. You not answering and thinking it is a trick question leads me to believe that you may not have reasonable expectations or don’t even know what you mean by “welcoming”.
