This new role is very excel heavy - formulas, linking, updating . Maybe I’m just not being efficient but how do you stay focused ? Also, don’t burn out. I don’t mean to be overly dramatic but my brain 🧠 kinda went to mush at the end of today

What I would do:

Automatize it and have my own library of models that can do 95% of the job. After you have it and extract some results, either you can chill on your job or ask for differently activities for your boss - hopefully activities that a person above you should do. This may lead you to a promotion, and if not, well, you just learned to do your job (and several others) faster and more precise - so use it to get a new offer elsewhere

P.s.: I don't wanna be condescending or anything, but I'm going into this line because a model that requires "formulas, linking and updating" isn't excel-heavy - and if it's a repetitive job, you can probably built something that can do that for you

I mean mushy at the end of the day isn't terrible but if you find it unbearable for the week it's probably not the right field for you. Not sure what your work culture is like but I take breaks in the day to go to the gym and do a working lunch to compensate

that too

I would dig a little deeper as to why its difficult to focus - is the task difficult and you're struggling to figure it (like it should be easy but its not) or is it too easy and you're just doing repetitive tasks? Either way you need to embrace it and learn how to automate and be efficient with it OR if you actually don't like it, consider what else you may want to do. Both are okay.

Insert meme.

I got a call from the Google recruiter about my L7 em interview Google She said I did overwhelmingly good on all interviews except one had mixed feedback on a system design. No surprise because it was not a good interview. The recruiter said i had a choice to go to hiring committee, give referrals they could call about my system design or take another system design interview. I’m not confident about the system design because of the bad experience I had with the previous interviewer. What should I do?
