        Everyone is there to support one another in a growing and exciting business. The pay and benefits are very good and the work is interesting. Every employee has the trust and autonomy to make a positive difference. Work life balances are respected and there has been positive steps forward for diversity and inclusion.


        The speed of decision making is very slow, even for an enterprise organisation. The culture promotes meritocracy which is great for involving everyone, but it does slow everything down.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      Do you have to interview again if you didn’t get the job the first time but the HM wants you to apply to the additional positions that opened up a few months after?


      Marketing Operations Coordinator

      I made changes to my resume and would like some feedback and/or constructive criticism. Please don’t be mean… the job search is hard enough already (ex- “this resume sucks” is not helpful 😂). I applied to 40 jobs today using this version (adding/removing key words, technology platforms, and phrases to match job descriptions, but overall the same resume) 😬 Really hoping to see an uptick in interview requests soon. 🤞🏻

      I am having the most important interview of my life in a few hours. High-end position. But I am stressed because my situation doesn't allow me to lose this chance. Does anyone have tips about what to say when they ask you how you process in sales to seal deals? I personally love the spin method but it is so instinctive for me that I struggle to describe it in a correct way for an interview and I lose my words...
