4-5 years in, whatcha making?
Hello guys. Need your help please. How do you get calls from product based companies?. Do you apply for jobs on Naukri/LinkedIn? Or apply directly on their website? Or is there any other way?. Because I see so many openings and apply but no one ever responds. Please help.
Ladies, I am a 3rd year associate at a mid size law firm working on complex M&A transactions. I am trying to pull together a resume but have no idea what type of information I should share. Does anyone have good resources / samples of a legal resume they could pass along?
6 months in and I feel so undervalued by the how little opportunity I have gotten and how there seems to be no plan for my career there. What do I do to change my situation? I want to make something before I try to leave to somewhere else
would like to share my experience at Amazon Interview
Recently I have been interviewed at Amazon after 3 rounds completion waiting for a week today I have been told unfortunately rejected. When I have asked for the reason HR said Data Inputs - at Amazon we value data inputs, all 3 interview rounds were on behavioural and LP, whereever it was necessary I have given data inputs and as per me all 3 rounds went really well. Still not understood what went wrong here? Any insights if any

What’s the best cadence for sending nurture emails? I’m looking to re-engage partners who haven’t worked with us in X amount of days. The series will be 7 emails and just wondering if anyone has seen more success with emails once a week vs every other week. I typically send nurture emails once a week but curious what success others have found breaking it up. TYIA!
How is the EY IAM practice? Seeing some movement from Deloitte towards EY and was wondering if they also have those long, boring IAM implementation projects which is one of the main reasons people are leaving the Deloitte IAM practice. If not, it would be a good move to consider:)
Just accepted my first offer at B4. It’s my first year out of undergrad. TC is around 95k. I have around 70k in student loans and around 25k in stocks & crypto.
Job is remote (for now at least), so I’ll still be living rent free at my mama’s house for at least another year.
How should I attack my student loans? Should I just save up & pay it all in one check? Should I wait for Biden to forgive anything? How would you go about it?
what is the expected comp range for a first year manager, customer strategy & growth at kpmg?

Mens loafer sizing. Got a pair of ferragamo loafers and wanted to know how they break in. I was inbetween the 9 and 9.5. The 9.5 fit fine with some space but I was worried how they would break in and stretch over use and become loose. The 9 fit a tad too snug on the width end. Should I stick with the 9 or go 9.5?

I was told I couldn’t be burnt out at work because I’ve only been there for under 2 years… not like I’m doing the work of 10-15 people… alone
Have you ever felt as if one person at work has started “freezing you out”, ie become slightly different / cooler in their attitude to you suddenly? How did you approach the situation? Did you ever find out the reason for the change in that person’s attitude? (Not talking about your manager freezing you out - just someone on the team)
Remember when someone reclined their plane seat and it became a national issue. I miss that. Take me back.

Well I’ll add to the burnout discussions! I’ll start by saying I know I’m not the only one in this situation and also how very grateful I am for my job and would never minimize the fact that I do have a good job. I work in a lab and have been looking for a new position for 7 years. I’ve had interviews, even for my exact position, and also the supervisory role to my position, both in different organizations, and no offer. And oh boy I really can’t write much more so I’ll continue in the comments!
Anyone get anxiety when checking their work emails, and if so, how to y’all deal with it? I can’t even escape the outlook sound even in my dreams 😵💫

Worry about Omicron? Cases have increased by fivefold in the city I live just during thanksgiving, and nobody cares about it anymore. Everywhere is crowded with people. I feel like Americans are giving up themselves on this.
I like the job/ people/ company I’m with, but I ended up taking an interview and getting an offer for 40% salary increase, similar role. I would truly only be leaving for the money. We’re not struggling but this would make a big difference over a few years. Yes I plan to ask current employer to see what they can do but they won’t be able to come close… is only for the money the wrong reason to leave?
