Anyone else live alone and single? Sometimes when I have a boring day/week I start feeling hopeless that the rest of my life could be just as mundane going forward unless I do something to change it. It usually passes, but I had hoped it would get better as the world is opening up more. I have hobbies that help and attended some therapy sessions earlier in the year, it’s just a lingering feeling. Does anyone else feel this way?
6 months pregnant and just laid off. And 40% of my severance was just taken in taxes .. I just spoke with paid family leave and I no longer qualify even though I had been paying into the program (thanks NY).. I already applied for unemployment but doctors are telling me I’ve got 10-14 weeks left in this pregnancy.. so stressed having twins and being unemployed, no maternity leave, no paychecks coming in, and I’ve been applying but not a single interview.. just ugh. 😭

Has anyone got any experience moving from London to Sydney/ Melbourne? Looking to understand how easy it is to get a role & visa without transferring internally (Associate Manager, Strategy)
What's the best way to answer the "tell me about yourself" question? It makes me so nervous... I never know where to start or what type of points to hit and then I lose confidence in the rest of the interview because I'm worried about how badly that answer went.
What would be a typical equivalent for a principal engagement manager role at AWS, when compared with consulting titles?
Is it similar to engagement manager or a bit more senior? The word principal is throwing me off :)
Why is it that every time I tell someone in a check in at Accenture that i'm happy in my role, on my project or in my team, they feel such a need to bring you down.
I joined in the last year and it feels like everyone has been endlessly pessimistic. Let me enjoy my job when it's good please!
First few weeks at my role: I tend to be very nervous prior to meetings, hence I haven't been putting up my best performance (although the team has been saying I am doing great). I just have so much to learn in order to be up to speed and it's stressing me out. Any advice on taking it easy and enjoying my life?
Is anyone else trying to break into that AE role sooner rather than later? Either externally or internally

I hold an offer of 18LPA from KPMG with joining date of 7th September. (Wfh)
I applied at Workday on 15th May and went through 7 technical rounds of interview and received a verbal offer letter of 21LPA (hybrid)
Now apparently their technical panel "forgot" about the interview and wants to have a discussion again as 8th technical interview. HR says their joining date will be 19th September.
Should i join KPMG?

How do you guys handle cover letters these days?
I’ve been a freelance copywriter for 11+ years. I have a client who prefers all their writer to charge per word. I typically charge $55-60/hour. Would $0.50 per word be a realistic rate.
I recently had to forfeit my portfolio and have to touch with new age publishers. What have you been doing? Do you cold outreach email editors and writers?

Has anyone done one of those wine bundles with points promotions (i.e. Vinesse Wines) where you get say 6 wines for $6.99 each and 10k miles for an airline (AA in this case)? Good/bad experiences with it? I keep getting emails. Obviously will be lower shelf wines but might as well get some miles vs just buying at my grocery store. Thanks all!

I need your help to sue a company I guess. Have you heard of this TV service provider Hellow tv. They (some desi folks) called my last year September and literally begged me to try their service for a month with a 30 day money back guarantee. I obliged and they made me pay $300 for the set up box and the first month of service. After I got the box I did not like the channels offered or the quality of display. After a week of trying to get issues resolved I decided to cancel the service. I called

Any recommendations to avoid feeling sleep towards the end of the work day? 3-5 PM I start doing the famous head bob if you know what I mean 🤣
I have been with my current company for the last 14 years. Straight commission position. Since 2013 hey have been trying to rebuild this store. Since working for them we’ve gone through 3 CFO’s and I am on my third BM who will being leaving the company only after a year. There is a new Area leader which is causing bad karma among the team. Strong arm tactics and now we are losing good people again. Ideas on how to deal with this very uncomfortable situation. Stuck between a rock and hard place.
Best way to answer the following question on an online resume submission:
What qualifications did we not ask you about that you wish we had in considering you for this role?
How large is your referral bonus if you refer someone and they get hired at your company?
My company is recruiting me for a “Assistant sales manager” position. My question is what do you think I should negotiate as a base pay? Anyone currently in that position?
Any suggestions on how to get around the “gatekeeper?” My job relies on calling and visiting cold leads and getting past the gatekeeper and speaking to someone who can make a decision is becoming nearly impossible.
Since starting at this company in January 2022, they’ve increased my base pay from 75k to 85k. Moved me in a desirable territory to maximize sales. allowed me to speak and train reps for what has been working. Given me the freedom to work strategies that work for me.
I absolutely love this company so far. I know my worth is higher than 85k base but sheesh. The way they value me and treat their employees right. Maybe it’s worth the lesser pay?
Enterprise SaaS reps- are most of your opportunities coming from inbound (MQLs) or mostly outbound opportunities?
Does anyone here use LinkedIn for prospecting, and have success with it? I have Premium, and I send dozens of messages per week, and if I’m lucky one person will respond. And most of the people I message work for companies that are already purchasing from us, but there’s no business relationship. Super frustrating.
The other question is: how many of you receive unsolicited messages on LinkedIn and just ignore them?
Hi everyone! Letting you know fishbowl helped me get a job with one of the biggest software companies! I finally got into the SaaS industry which has been my goal for a year now. Just started this week :) :).
I received a job offer with a probationary period that requires targets are met to obtain the full salary I requested. While this is not a pure sales role, biz dev and revenue are part of the responsibility of managing a 30pp department in this role.
One target requires I increase team revenue by 20% in 6 months. They haven't shared current revenue info yet, but 20% on ANY number seems really high, especially in the first 6 months.
What are some reasonable revenue increase goals you've had?
So my company got acquired by a large corporation. Things are getting weird, and even though I have 4 years at my company this larger company doesn't seem to have much opportunity for growth until the next year minimum. I got a job offer paying 54k more in base, while selling a more superior solution in the same industry. Would you leave your job for more money and enterprise experience or stay where you have tenure and ride it out the acquisition longer? I am selling into smb and mid market now
If you’ve got the experience, stats, and the resume to attract a first interview but can’t make it past that then I would say the issue is the way you are either conducting or communicating yourself in the interview.
How much do you know about their culture, their values, the average personality on their team? Are you humble? Are you positive? Do you speak highly about others you’ve worked with in the past?
Take a step back and look at what your subliminal message might be. How would someone on the outside view you as a person?
Thank you for the insight, it is truly appreciated. I feel as though I have come along way from where I started in my current position. I need to be aware of my accomplishments and allow myself to celebrate them. As well as accept the shortcomings I’ve dealt with.
a concise, compelling and executive level summary of your experience and how you tell the story is important. i can tell you are overly focused on the exact break down of the numbers, etc.
This is sooooo true. How you tell the story is very iimportant.
Just joined Amazon as an AE few months ago. Definitely a challenging interviewing process end to end. Happy to do mock interviews with you, if you’d like.
Congrats on that role! I would like to do mock interviews too!
Are you married to Amazon or Uber? Maybe those just aren't a great fit for you right now. Plenty of other great opportunities out there if you're willing to consider them. As for getting past the first interview, I'd recommend getting a mentor and/or interview coach who can help you hone your interview skills and become more comfortable/confident. I did this a few years ago and it really accelerated my career trajectory.
Thank you! I’ve tried to look for a interview coach, but I’ve yet to find one that I liked. As for married to either those companies, not necessarily. But I am ready to make a career change as the auto industry moves towards electric vehicles, basically no chemicals involved in electric vehicles and HEV
It is incredibly difficult to break into companies like Amazon and Uber so I would not be discouraged. Automotive chemicals is likely not the exact industry they are looking for. As a hiring manager for a tech company, that would not be an ideal fit for me. Try breaking into another tech company to get more tech sales experience, and apply again in a year or two.
I totally get that which is why I was a bit confessed when they were the ones to reach out to me. I would had figured I would have needed some type of experience in tech. That being said, do you think the a good path for me would be to take certification courses they offer?
I’m currently signed up with the sales leadership certification course at Salesforce in the hopes to increase my chances.
I would suggest getting a personal referral. That is how I got into Amazon. I kept trying and then getting a referral is what helped me the most.
The competition to get into Amazon and Uber is really tough. I'd suggest you find a referral. Do your know any recruiters/referrals around your area?
Ohhh. That's so horrible. This is very common, especially with Amazon recruiters. They just ghost applicants for no reason.
