Let’s face it, many of us believe our jobs are our primary sources of stress. With projects to keep up with, meetings to attend, and emails to write, there just isn’t enough time (or coffee) in a day. Many people end up taking their work home with them, if not physically then mentally, and fresh ideas and things to do become the main source of sleepless nights. That's why here at HubSpot we try to find small and easy ways to bring balance to employees' day-to-days.

How to Prep for a Technical Interview at HubSpot

By Logan Hotchkiss

It’s so important for the success of our teams to hire the right people.That's why we spend a lot of time thinking about the best ways to interview engineering and software development candidates. How can we assess a candidate's skills, but also their potential? And at the same time, how can we create a great candidate experience? Those are some of the questions we think about when iterating on our recruitment and interview processes at HubSpot, because we know that as much energy as we're putting in, you, the candidate, are likely spending a lot of time thinking about your upcoming interview, too.

What to Wear for a Tech Job Interview

By Devon Brown

My love affair with fashion started at the ripe age of five, when I started requesting clothes instead of toys for birthday and Christmas gifts. While I’d never consider myself a fashionista, putting together a “look” is a cause near and dear to my heart. And I’m not the only one: Most candidates I talk to during their recruiting process ask the pressing question, “What should I wear for my tech job interview?”

An Insider's Guide to Tackling Your First Week at a New Job

By Riley Stefano

I'm the newest member of the culture team here at HubSpot. (Yes, we have a team committed solely to making sure our employees love coming into work every day.) Not only am I new to the company, but I’m pretty new to the “real world”, too, having graduated college last May. So not surprisingly, I was nervous (to say the least) for my first day on the job. I triple set my alarms, I had my outfit all picked out, and I had my lunch packed and ready. But even after prepping, those butterflies were fluttering like crazy the entire morning as I got ready for this new journey.

How I Hit Over 100% of Quota My First Year in Sales

By Stephen Higgins

This week marks the one year anniversary of starting my first-ever sales job. I spent the 10 years prior as an out-and out-marketer. I went from buying HubSpot as a customer, to implementing it at that company, to then joining HubSpot as a Channel Consultant. A year later, I was looking for a new challenge and started talking to my managers about the world of sales.

Making Hard Conversations Easier: How to Say the Tough Stuff at Work

By Caitlin Mosca

I spend the majority of my day delivering good news. As a recruiting coordinator, saying things like “We’d like move you forward in the process,” “We’d like to bring you in to meet the team,” “You did a great job on your call, role play or presentation” is the best part of my job. It’s easy to send someone an email or get on the phone with them and say things that I know will make their day. It’s a lot harder to deliver bad news to candidates.

Difficult workplace conversations, however, span much more than just being rejected for a position or receiving constructive criticism from higher-ups. Making a big ask, pushing back on a manager, or realizing that the timing of an internal move might not align with your expectations are also difficult conversations to have, with yourself and with others.

How Employees Can Get an MBA at the Office

By Ellen Pratt

I’m a self-proclaimed nerd. I love school. Given the chance, I would spend all of my time in a classroom or with my nose in a book (or even better, a crossword puzzle). Almost three years ago to the day, I quit my job to get my MBA at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business. When I graduated, I had to leave my books behind to rejoin the “real” world, but, luckily, I found HubSpot.
