Hey FishBowl Friends, so I’m currently trying to break into tech sales/FinTech and I feel that due to my previous work history, I might not look like the ideal candidate on paper but I’m an extremely fast learner and very coachable. I’ve been a manger at a gym, got my degree in finance, worked as a client advisor at a top 3 auto dealer in the nation and now I’m a project manager at a solar company. I really want something that’s remote and steady, any recommendations on how to spruce myself up?

Boss1 (American): “Because it just complicates things! Why do you have to go and throw a spanner in the wheel?!”

What happens when you literally CANNOT get tasks or assignments done because of other tasks or assignments? For context I’m out of town for work, had three 14 hour days with the client/ product, now have two different decks due today and am traveling home by air until 10pm. My bosses attitude is like “well why not?” about this whole scenario. Trying to work on deck in my downtime but also need to like…eat…and sleep.
