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?

  1. User Experience Designer Interview

    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Smashing Boxes (Raleigh, NC)

    Interview

    Two interviews, one general interview and a design presentation for take home design challenge.

    Seemed like an interesting place to work. I was told that they are looking for designers to help build up their design team to take on more projects.

    Only negative part about this experience was the untimely responses I got from the hiring manager. Other than that, the interview process was fairly simple and not very challenging.
