Hi everyone! I’m a young CPA, relocating to Raleigh. I made the decision to transition into sales after realizing that I want to bring more fun into my career. I’m currently reading sales books, watching Keenan’s YouTube channel, and learning all I can. I’m relentlessly applying for SDR positions but I’m having trouble landing interviews (been applying through LinkedIn). I would appreciate advice from anyone who transitioned from another industry into sales. How did you break the barrier?
I am in a pretty much pigeonholed group for tax at B4. I was wondering for people who were/are in a similar situation how do you handle interviews for more general tax roles? Also any success stories are greatly appreciated as well! Need some motivation…
I have been interviewing a lot for the past 2 months and while the B4 experience gets me interviews, I’ve yet to receive an offer. It has been really hard for me, so any advice is appreciated.

Interviewing for Manager in tech strategy, anyone have insights on interview format and /or willing to chat?
My partner had an interview where a full naked body (either from a roommate or s/o?) was exposed on the interviewers side of their Zoom background. No apology or acknowledgement towards the situation was ever expressed during/after the interview. She decided to bring it up to HR and they completely brushed it off as well. She is emotionally scarred and in such a slump by the situation and job search in general. Is this normal agency behavior, especially from HR?! So grossed out by the response.
I'm trying to get a job from past 7 months but nothing is working out and now I'm losing hope. I have interviewed at few companies but never got the response back. I would be really greatful if you'll could help me with same.
I'm looking for a job in creative field, Marketing, Branding or Design.
