I am currently with VMWARE as a digital sales rep. I have another offer in hand with Confluent. The comp is lucrative as compared to the current one but I am sceptical if the move is worth. The next role is of Commercial account executive. How is Confluent as a company, is the move from VMware to there worth given the situation at VMWARE post broadcom acquisition.

I have a call on Monday for an in house job where I’d be drafting, reviewing, and negotiating contracts in areas that I’m not familiar with. I applied to the job because it’s in an industry I’d like to break into and at a company I adore. To note, I’m currently a first year lit associate. What questions should I be prepared for regarding transferability of my skills? Is there anything else I should be aware of?

Hey guys, I’m a freelance broadcast producer and I’ve spent most of my career working for larger agencies. I’m doing something for a smaller agency and they want the production company to hide costs in their bid and then have production bill the client the inflated amount directly and pay the hidden costs to the agency. The agency is calling it a “consultation fee” but client just thinks production costs more. Is that common and I just haven’t experienced it before? Or is this a big red flag?
