The netflix college admissions scandle, how much does this happen when it comes to those graduates getting their first job?

I mean, how often are captains of industries that pay hundreds of thousands, if not millions to get their kids into college, also paying to get their kids jobs & careers?


I often come across people & think to myself, how the fuck did you get past the interview?

In sales? Almost never.Β 

in other industries like finance, law enforcement c etc, it’s more rife than the college scandalΒ

I feel like sales is more, friends of friends helping each other out or helping friends kids get their first job. I'm sure in the next 5-10 years, there will be CRO's out there known as king makers- work for this CRO and you'll be a millionaire inΒ  x number of years, or some shit like that.

100% in other industries. If I'm a senior exec paying retainers to law firms, you best believe that law firm is picking my kid if they want to work there.

I would say it doesn’t happen as much in our industry, but I’d say law firms, architecture, Etc. nepotism is rampant.Β

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
"I often come across people & think to myself, how the fuck did you get past the interview?" That's excellent.

This is a really good point. One of daddy's friends is gonna hire these kids anyway, so why do illegal shit?

Who went to college knowing they would get into sales?

I was hired at a really good start up about 4 months ago for a SDR role that I was told I wouldn’t be in for very long. They’re gonna go public in the next year, but Zoom Info reached out to me about an Account exec position. Now I’m wondering if I should take the guaranteed route to AE or let my shares vest and get to AE at the place that took me. Usually I wouldn’t consider jumping so quickly, but AE is AE.
