I don’t think this is a downside at all - you’ve seen projects from all types of lenses. You can be a strategic advisor to a client not only from one angle but from multiple - phrase it with confidence this way in front of your interviewer. Not a one trick pony , which if your going into transformation helps a great deal as it’s a broader scope

I am currently looking to break into pre sales through a SE role. I’ve gone through a few interviews but am struggling to make traction, I think due to my lack of hard technical skills. I’m currently in IT management consulting and have been in the health IT space specifically for the past 8 years. Would love to connect with anyone they may have made a similar transition from management consulting to pre sales. I have 2 years of experience in SaaS sales but that was about 4 years ago. Thanks!

So for this company, I gave 3 rounds of interviews...the last round was with manager...he asked my exp salary, I said 10lpa. On further negotiation, he agreed for giving something between 9.5-10 including bonus n ol. Now, HR mailed me a proposed salary of 7lpa🥴. Over call she said the manager who agreed for 9.5+ is not from hr department and giving this much hike is against company policy. Later she said to add 50k JB and 100k RB. What should I do now? Current CTC: 6 lpa Yoe: 1

Hey guys, I have been interviewing with GCP for a TAM role and heard from the recruiter that the role I was interviewing for is filled up. However he said he’s on the lookout for other teams and managers to see if they are interested in hiring. Wanted to understand how much time does team match take and if currently GCP has any opportunities for TAM? The recruiter wasn’t sure of the timeline and when I could expect to hear from a team and I’m wondering what will happen next!

Hi Fishes A bit off topic but relevant. Did anyone hear abt TekFog & Persistent Systems Limited ? Did they develop it ? What's going on ?

Does anyone has any insights into it beyond the company blog post claiming they are not involved. Also how is the work culture there, are these sort things even believable for such company ?
