I have been approached for a new job opportunity. Its a good company & normally I would definitely go ahead with the next step but I just found out that one of my ex-colleagues is in the same team that I'm being approached for. It would be at the same level. This person was a really bad employee & really ruined the team culture.. The only good thing I can say about this person is that they were smart enough to quit before being fired. I'm apprehensive to even try & interview here. Any advice?
When is promotion day at Deloitte?
Interviewed for a senior technical position at a startup (about 50 employees). During the interview the CEO spent about 20 minutes answering my questions. There was no discussion about my technical skills or experience. They emailed that they are working on an offer. Is the interview process a redflag? The only technical screening that happened was the HR lead's 10 minute phone call.

Hi, anyone has experience with Forte On demand? Thinking if it is worth to sign up to for additional resources and application fees waiver if I’m applying to at least three schools in the list. TIA
Hi Friends, I need urgent help. Suppose in experience letter my designation is test specialist but in candidate form of EY I gave senior test specialist. Will it be problem? Actually after getting promotion I thought I became senior test specialist so gave senior test specialist in EY form. As next band is for senior people and I wrote as senior test specialist. But later I saw it was test specialist designation in my current company. Will that create problem in verification?
What is your go to end of interview question?
I make low 60k (plaintiffs PI), and I’m a third year attorney, if I ask for a 10% raise this year am I crazy? (I grew a ton in last year, took on new tasks and was given more responsibility in cases). Tips? Advice?
I advanced another round in the interview process after thinking I did horribly for a role that seems like such a good fit! Still only 20% to the offer but just wanted to share my joy with my fellow🐠
Anyone threatened to straight up quit with nothing else lined up as a way to negotiate a raise?

To all consultants out there: I am rather introvert and quite confcall - how did you learn to boost your confidence? Culturally I come from a region where self promotion is seen negatively. You always down-play.

Currently interviewing for PM role at a marketing tech company. Is it a bad proxy if this company's product mgrs and software engineers all come from non top 50 undergrads and have no brand name employment history? Or is tech related stuff just different vs. strategy
had a miscarriage recently and am having hard time not to think or worry about what happened. It’s been 3 weeks and my husband just yelled at me saying 1. I should be grateful for the kid I have 2. We didn’t plan so I can’t worry about it. 3. That he is done caring for our toddler in the mornings( he wakes up pretty early in the morning due to daylight savings) and i am unable to sleep at night, end up sleeping in the morning. Does anyone go to therapy for miscarriage? Does it help?

I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?
I currently work in a hybrid sales/marketing role. However, I would love more experience in marketing specifically so I can move in to a marketing specific role. Does anyone have a suggestion of books or articles, podcasts, organizations to follow that will allow me to stay up to date on the latest trends but also help prepare for a marketing centric role? Thank you
The senior and SM on my project (both guys) have worked together before, and seem to be very close. The SM started involving the senior in meetings that I wasn’t even aware about to divide and conquer. I am a newly promoted Manager, and have tried not to make a big deal about it. The client asked for an extension, but the SM doesn’t want to include me to keep costs low. I’ve provided feedback to the senior on deliverables, and often times he responds “let’s ask SM”.
