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.

I kept missing her calls because I was at work and I would call her back later or e-mail her requesting that she simply set up a time in advance so I could clear my schedule.

She stopped trying and I wrote her on LinkedIn to see if the position was open and I was ghosted. This was almost two years ago, but I still think the whole exchange was very bizarre.
