@ronswansonluva Thank you for saying that! I just took part II of the CompassPoint training and highly recommend both!
@Marille More conferences should do that - that's an awesome idea.
@eemusings Yep, I've definitely done that!
@guenna77 Genius tip about social media.
@ChristinaMichelle I am the same way! Glad you tried some of these things. How did they work for you?
@Markovaa I agree that that pay was not unreasonable in that it was very much in line with what other non-profit jobs would have offered. What concerned me in particular was the lack of uncertainty around whether/how I would supplement my income - and the fear that it would make it very difficult for me to keep another job! Also, as I wrote, I'm pretty change averse. The possibility of ending up with only a part-time job, with no benefits and increased expenses, was too daunting for me.
@ronswansonluva Yeah, I believe it. That's dispiriting. And good sleuthing - it was indeed in Marin!
That's both simpler (because there's something measurable to point to and provide specific feedback about) and more complicated (because it's affecting the business directly). Do you and this person share a supervisor?
@sig sag great point about the subject line of the email!
@chickpeas akimbo I'm the same way. Whenever I've been approached for informational interviews - which has happened maybe half a dozen times - earnestness wins over generic/business-y. The worst is when they have absolutely no idea what you or your company do. Basic research, people.
