I guess you could try connecting with more people and hope that you’re lucky enough to find someone willing to help.

I would try to connect with some people on Linked in. I have had great success that way.

Hello. I have been offered a job opportunity as SME (subject matter expert), although I have previous experience in account coordination, training, HR, etc. I had never heard of that professional category, does someone have experience in that position to give me a little more information on what tools can help you to be a good SME? Thanks!

I’m really torn about my current role. On the one hand recruiters have been aggressive and there are some really compelling opportunities (both role & salary)…On the other hand I’m invested in my product. It’s a real dog w/6yrs of false starts before I took it over in January. I’ve just cleared a reset window and want to see if we can deliver against new targets. I think my best bet is to time-box and re-evaluate in a couple of months but my anxiety around missed opportunities is driving me mad.

Hello everyone!

I recently accepted a job offer with a new company. My base pay went from 124k to 125k. The new role also has a guaranteed 7% annual bonus. I put my notice in one Friday that I'd be leaving and my current employer countered with 134k. While that's not enough to make me stay, I want to leverage that offer to renegotiate my new role. I don't start until next month so there's a window where it's still possible to renegotiate.

How do I not come across as greedy?
