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?

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Lightspeed (Toronto, ON) in Aug 2021

    Interview

    I received 3 Interviews

    First one was with a very professional, & passionate recruiter name “Natalie “
    She ran the interview very smoothly, clarified all aspects regarding the job, asked powerful questions to qualify me for the role to ensure I’m a good fit for the position
    Natalie gave me amazing first impression about Lightspeed which increased my passion to be part of a great team

    Second interview was with 2 lovely, professional, and detailed oriented managers, took me an hour

    Last interview was with sales manager and HR as both were very kind and nice
    They asked me Behavioural questions and how to act towards specific situations

    My overall was amazing, I feel I’m super looking lucky to be part of a big company and be part of a great team
    Interview

    - Behavioural questions - previous KPI’s - long term goal - how to organize time - latest project I participated in - funny things to do
