Same boat except I’m two years in (dont know how they still haven’t hired another women during that time 🤷🏼‍♀️). I think it just takes time to build rapport with your team, regardless of gender. Give it a few months. The growing pains of starting a new position are always awkward and painful, but they will pass.

You’re only 3 weeks in. Give it some time. It takes people a while to get used to the new team member. They are trying to determine what kind of stuff they can throw at you.

I work as an implementation consultant and my work is highly industry specific, utility billing for municipalities generally less than 20k accts.

As I look for other jobs (more just curious and not actively applying) I see that I am not a fit for much out there. I have no technical skills to accompany my IT degree because it’s been so long since I touched SQL. Have I siloed myself? Cont in comments.

Would love some advice—I’ve spent the last 2 yrs in sr level role doing policy work I enjoy. early on I discovered I was srsly underpaid & had to fight to fix it. Then leadership changed & things were good, until recently they dangled a promotion only to tell me it wouldn’t come with a raise for at least 6 mons. Then a diff agency asked me to apply for a role that pays a lot more but the work sounds so boring. Do I follow the money or do I keep doing work I like while feeling undervalued?

Need some advice: For context I’m an engineering student - I’ve gotten a role as a business analyst for a health tech startup that just raised their series A (10M) and is rapidly scaling.They brought me on part time until I finish up school in the spring. I negotiated to begin my vesting schedule now and I absolutely love the company and product-only problem is that I am losing all motivation for school…especially since it’s engineering. I’m going to finish-but how do I make it easier to balance
