I usually ask about the team logistics, so if I will be working independently or with a set of people and how many, also how many more people do they expect to add

I'm going through a layoff at my job. I was a programmer many years ago and have gradually moved to a Project Management role over the years. I don't really like that kind of work and see an opportunity here to reskill a bit. What are thoughts on microdegrees or certificates from the like of Coursera? I have good tech acumen, just wondering if someone would hire in the area of Data Science with one of these degrees. For info: 40s, 20+ years experience, and BBA in Computer Info Systems.

Average salary for an associate level healthcare consultant at small to mid-size firms? (3-4 years consulting experience). Making a career move soon, and want to be prepared to value myself for when the topic of compensation comes up in an interview. Currently believe I am underpaid from the research I’ve done, so would love some insight from FB!

Firm i am interviewing with is a midsize firm. I have 3 years of complex lit experience, they do simple property law. They need me for pre-lit only. No interviewers were able to discuss compensation, so they set me up with a phone call with the owner today. Owner never called. Part of me wants to send a passive agressive email telling them no thanks because they do not respect my time and another part of me wants to be understanding. What do i do?

Can someone explain the difference between FB’s Partner Solutions Manager and the Strategic Partner Manager? From an initial recruiter call, it seems the SPM provides the consultative product recs while the PSM onboards the client onto that product and tracks performance to provide actionable recs as needed. Anyone know career growth and salary for these two? I don’t want a sales heavy/only lateral growth role like their client solutions manager roles so these seem like good compromises?
