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?

Approves of CEO


- positive people who seem really motivated - environment that encourages learning and continually advancing skills - discussions focus on the impact of work first, rather than on first aiming to


- not really a con, but big goals can require big resilience as we encounter roadblocks and must find repeatedly find ways around them (if you hate it when yearly or multi-year goals change

  1. Sales Development Representative (SDR) Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Personio (Sweden)


    Three interviews on different areas such as sales and values. Initially sounded like a lot but makes perfect sense according to their operating principles and values. The interviews mostly consists of open questions and scenarios you are asked to describe. One of the three interviews included a mock sales call that felt very relaxed and open. Overall very professional and well structured, you can tell that this company literally personi(o)fies HR and know what they’re doing.

    There was also a sense of friendlyness, inclusivity and genuinity that I have found is a rare thing to notice so early on in the process. It gave me an idea of how they work and value their employees, since that was my impression throughout the entire interview process. Every step of the way there was personal contact and help, insisting on me reaching out if I had any questions. Overall a great experience.

    Describe a situation where you worked with a colleague that was hard to please and how you handled it.
