        I found severe unprofessionalism in HK local management/ collegues and supervisors ( specifically Data & AI team) and Account management team. I find it extremely disrespectful, disgraceful and unacceptable on how this company prioritizes "profit" over the employees' skill and expertise without regard for merit. No proper account planning , unrealistic industry solutions for Customer rather the company's sole focus is on making money( $$$) and how to meet the target regardless of obstacles faced Global policy wise very good including India / US teams are really helpful but local Management (HK) is really bad. so that very difficult to work this team

      hi , I’m new here 👋 I have an interview coming up and I’m struggling on how to answer the “tell me about yourself statement question.” I personally don’t like to talk about myself and have the tendency to start talking about me but then I end up talking about what’s on my resume 🤦‍♀️ any advice ?

      Hi, I applied for a job at a small business warehouse and I had a phone call with them about 1.5 weeks ago. It went well and a few days after, I got an email asking me when can I do an in person interview. I replied the following business day and gave them three dates. However, it’s been 4 days and they have not responded back to my email response. I even sent them a follow up and nothing. What does this mean and what should I do?

      Just finished an application to a university that required me to enter all my work experience twice. First under employer history then AGAIN under work history. I am hoping no one else is that persistent or stubborn and I will be the only applicant! Oh, and you had to attach your resume too.
