Looking to exit to a tech company - has anyone ever approached a DEI person at the company you are applying to on LinkedIn? Is this something worth pursuing or should I just apply directly?

I think having a referral or talking to the DEI person does help, but everything else should also be a fit. I would definitely reach out to the DEI or someone in the Latinx Professional Network to see if you can get a referral. with that said, I attempted that with Google and while there was an initial conversation there was no interview. Mucha suerte!

Hi, I have been in the business where I am for over 15 years. Even after I became a MD, there’s always few who undermines my skill sets and knowledge. Similar to the other posts I’m tired of this (whack a mole game, squid game) and I still have 3 years prior to vest my pension. I’m debating losing my sanity vs. losing good pension. To be honest unless I can move laterally to another role, I’m bored with what I’m doing right now.

With two years of consulting experience, I’m scared of looking for jobs. You may laugh at my imposter syndrome, but I developed an interview phobia.

How much of practice would bring me back to proficiency? 3-4 mos?
