Seen a lot of posts on tech relating to FAANG and unicorns recently regarding exit ops, interviews, and roles. Created this for sharing insights and general networking. Open to all, but I encourage those already in tech to join and help others out.
Drop the best questions for a phone interview with the hiring manager (second interview) for a PM role? I always default to questions about culture and I’m looking to shake things up a bit.
My query on Facebook (Meta) I have received an invite to schedule a call with recruiter. Any guidance for what to except and how to prepare for this call. My application is for HR Compensation role.
I was doing the hiring interview for an experienced hire last week, in our technology consulting practice. I discussed the career level, specialty group, type of work, etc. The candidate then said that they would only accept the offer if it allowed them to work from home, indefinitely. Have others encountered such a request? BTW, no offer was extended. I couldn’t commit to “indefinite WFH”, when clients often require us on-site and with out-of-town travel.
What is the practical, day-to-day difference between a Senior Strategist and a Strategy Director?

Cognizant Experience -
Last Wednesday, My HR round was completed and they said your offer letter will be released by next day(they asked me to fill cdf-2 form) then I kept waiting and waiting for the offer letter.
After multiple email chain and all, HR called me to say, we cannot move with your candidature as your experience is below 3 years. I said I already informed this to you before the interview, she said yes but we can not proceed. Very unprofessional.

How do interviews at Johnson work? Do you know who you’ll be interviewing with? I scheduled my interview but haven’t heard from anyone specifically.
I’m currently in between jobs as a nurse but I do have multiple interviews coming up and have received some offers. I recently moved from PA to Central Virginia but I’m at a loss for how much I should be asking for for an hourly rate. In PA, I was making close to $31/hr. I have 4 years experience as a nurse, 1.25 in the operating room and 3 in an outpatient clinic. Any advice would be appreciated greatly!
I started my career out of college at a big bank last year in their product rotation. Great pay and benefits, but it’s a bank. I’m applying to jobs right now and am moving forward in the process with a crypto-related startup. It’s <50 employees right now. For career development, do you think my current job will open more doors or the startup? For more context, the startup has only a director of product, and that is the only product role at the moment.
All else equal, is it easier to become direct admit PP rather than promoted to that role from SM or MD? Seems less obstacles. Thoughts?

What do you think that the education system needs to do, to get young people to be better prepared with challenges in life?

To me, these skills altogether prepped me with a lifelong ‘Swiss Army knife’! Anyone with children with ideas?

🐠 need your help - have a conversation with a CEO of a series A funded startup (50-100 employee). He reached out on LinkedIn to talk about a potential role. I have no insights into the role yet. From the broader company perspective, what kind of questions should I ask? First time talking to a startup CEO, so want to be asking relevant questions. Vision? Roadmap? Valuation?! Not sure. Thanks in advance.
