What skills do I need to have to get a job working for a company in the technology/software industry? G/L Accounting should be similar everywhere but seems like technology companies are looking for something specific and I would like to know what that is so I can work towards it.

I work in tech/software industry. Nobody in GL accounting has any special skills. But many are from big4 and have a CPA. Good luck.

In the Bay Area. How hard is it to go from an individual contributor role to managerial? No upward mobility at current firm. Wondering if I should move to another individual contributor role at a larger tech company (FAANG) which might open up more opportunities? Or, aim high for a head of talent role somewhere else.

Hi everybody,

Looking for some insight/curious to hear how others would handle this situation:

I have an offer I want to accept; I was trying to negotiate for a signing bonus… but they’re not budging.

The issue is, the start date is in a month and I’m up for a promotion in a week at my current company. I would like to leave before I get promoted, I think it would be pretty low of me to accept and promptly quit.

Not the new employer’s problem? Or can/should I try to leverage this?
