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. Educational Sales Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Varsity Tutors (United States)

    Interview

    Filled out the app online. Completed a prerecorded video interview. Was given two chances to record each answer. They followed up about 4 days later with a phone interview with a recruiter. It lasted about 15-20 minutes and was pretty casual. About a week later I was given the offer. Training began a month later and was paid at the $18/hour rate, and it lasted a week.

    Pros:
    - quick process
    - casual interview

    Cons:
    - long time before starting
    Interview

    They asked typical sales questions.
