I had a recent loss in my immediate family. I feel like my boss does not believe me. He knew the family member had been in bad shape for weeks. Why do I feel the need to justify the loss to him?

I know things are crazy right now but have we all forgotten basic manners & business etiquette? I have had two recruiters connect in the last week asking for time to meet with no follow up from them.

Had interview last week for a role I am very qualified for but botched my phone interview with the hiring manager, did a poor job explaining my background, worth explaining this to internal recruiter?

Had a great phone interview with a recruiter a few weeks ago. Said recruiter left and the new one said they were behind in their process but would keep me posted. That was 2 weeks ago. How to proceed?

Why do recruiters do cold outreach to work email addresses? How could they not know that these emails are monitored and put the potential candidates at risk? Do they just not give any fucks?

Was supposed to have a call with an in house contract recruiter & they are completely MIA & haven’t responded to email. Is recruiting that broken that all human decency is gone?!

Why do independent recruiters ask which agencies you've sent your book to before they start sending it around? Genuinely curious

Do you recommend cold emailing at all? There's a few companies I'd love to work at but they don't have any positions open (that I could see on LinkedIn/their website). (cont)
