Hi all! I have been interviewing for new roles. I have been getting interviews, however in multiple interviews I have gotten negative feed back because I was a police officer for about 3 years. I have investment banking, finance, private equity, startup, and sales experience. For whatever reason, I have had multiple recruiters/hiring managers say they were not comfortable with my experience as a member of law enforcement. I awards / accommodation for my time as an officer. Any tips to overcome?

I recently interviewed with a large bank and the recruiter gave me a call 2 days ago to confirm my salary to put into the offer and asked who I will be bringing with me to relocate (so they can estimate my relocation expense I think).

Thanks for any help.

My firm’s policy requires a minimum tenure in current role before interviewing and switching to another internal role. I’m in interview processes with other firms for the role I want, but would prefer to do that role at my firm. Is there a way to negotiate with HR about this?
