In this podcast episode, I interview Alan Stein, founder of Kadima Careers and former employee of top companies like Google, Facebook, Salesforce, and American Express. We talk about navigating internal politics, job loss, and transparency in the workplace. Alan shares his experiences getting hired at Google and emphasizes the importance of having someone open the door for you. He also talks about the importance of understanding power centers within an organization and building relationships with people who have decision-making ability. And of course, we talk all things layoffs and how they have been handled by big tech companies.
Finally, Alan gives advice on how to navigate the job search process and negotiate job offers.
If you're deep in job search, you simply cannot afford to miss this episode!
