    shopping is pretty solid. ads org generally good in terms of mgmt as it provides the lifeblood. talent generally good for related reasons. the work is not earth shattering at this point but interesting problems. easy to measure/show impact. visibility pretty good. shopping is more nascent vs rest of ads so good combination of scale (it is very large business) and growth (still a substantive growth vehicle).

    what are you looking for in team/role?

      looking for good impact and interesting work. I focused a lot on cloud transformation and big data at scotiabank, and wanted to stay within that but google shopping seemed interesting as well.

      I’m looking for a program manager role that’s more focused on strategic influence and programs and less operations.

    What do you mean by a fit call? I was mentioned that they scheduled team match call with manager tomorrow. Does it mean I am picked by that team? Or is this just an informational call and the manager will pick me after the call?
