You know what is kind of sad? I've now learned that this one SM I have looked up to for the last year is kind of a mess. Nobody is perfect. Time for a new role model. Oh well

Take the best parts of your mentors and try to emulate in your own way. Know they're human and so are you, too. The best people I've found as role models are those who strive for excellence for themselves and those around them, not those who think they are excellent.

Ugh, I kind of tried, but she tends to be kind of stubborn. She is now in another part of the company and I rarely see her. She once flat out said, "you should not look up to me." It was not in a humble way. I was like, hmm, wow, is that a red flag for her self esteem? I thought that she was a badass working mom! My husband always told me that she seemed immature and I now see it. Oh well. I will say that it is important for there to be female role models in the office.

I have had that happen to me. Looked upto to some dude and he turned out to be flat out psychopath. We live and learn and move on. My lesson was not to place my trust on people so easily. You actually have to go through stuff with people, before they are worthy of your trust and respect.

This is out of pure curiosity and no judgment at all! But I’m curious, if you knew you could afford it, how many of you would choose to be a stay at home mom? (Afford it meaning you would have to make financial sacrifices, but not necessarily worry about making ends meet). Give a “helpful” reaction for no, I’d rather work. Give a “smart” reaction for I’d rather be a SAHM

Does quitting a consulting company in about 6 to 7 months of joining earn a bad reputation especially if your next jump is to a client position (to be clear not being poached!!) ? Because the industry is small and niche - will this impact my career in a negative manner?

Maybe my company is a bit outdated, but we screen every resume that comes in. Our resumes are viewed in Kronos. Kronos does not hide any of them. How does Workday ’s system work? I know someone who was just rejected for a position at VMware and he had a great resume. Is it possible that there’s no one actually reviewing his resume and that Workday scans his resume and if it didn’t contain key words, he would receive an automated rejection? Does anyone have any insight about ATS in general?

Hey! Any UI/UX designers?! I'm just about to start doing some freelance work for a NYC based small design studio, and I need to give a hiring manager my hourly rate. I am new to UI/UX design. I have experience in graphic design, but I just completed a certificate in UI/UX design so other than school projects I don't have an extensive amount of experience. What would you suggest I should charge? I am more interested in gaining experience than needing the money, but want to be payed reasonably.
