Thoughts on GLG? Offer in business development team. GLG not finance but need reach!! Got 24 hours to respond. I am a finance analyst but offered a job in the team and wondering how hard do they go in on sales? They said no financial targets until year 2 but I’m sceptical. I’ve never done sales before either and the job involves prospect and account mapping. I was offered the job due to my transferable skills. I will be in a small team of 4 but my role is the only business development position.

I was at GLG for 5 years, happy to chat!

That’s great thank you! Unfortunately I’m new here so haven’t got enough points to direct message you. I’ll try sort it out. I’m just intrigued about how much pressure there is on the sales side of things

Question, when you know you made it to the final round and have had nothing but glowing feedback from the interviewers. How long do you expect to wait for an offer, rejection, follow up? This is a mid-senior management position which I am well qualified for. I am just new to the tech space. Side note, we talked compensation and start date already.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
