Technical Account Manager
Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Barcodes Inc (Chicago, IL) in Mar 2022
InterviewRecruiter of their HR was nice and informative, we discussed my previous experience and the job duties that come with their Account Executive role. She informed me that it comes with a book of business without having to cold-call. Had a video interview with 2 sales managers (1 declined to show on video). They let me know it'd be A LOT of cold-calling. I felt a cold vibe once it commenced. They did not discuss the exact prior role I had but did focus on me having a merely 'administrative' job 11 years ago on my resume, although I wouldn't deem it administrative by any means and I was newly out of college at the time, I guess they thought it was beneath them while the job I was hearing about seemed more entry-level anyway. My last role was both inside and outside sales with great track record but somehow they focused on a job they didnt like I had over a decade ago. Also had attitude because I had a gap in my resume, asked me what I was exactly doing in all that time. Unprofessional and disrespectful. I went ahead and took myself out of the running the next morning so I wasn't offered a job or another round or interview but I declined to be considered further.
Why did you have an administrative job 11 years ago? Why was the company you were last at such a good agency for clients? Why is there a gap in your resume?1 Answers
