Any one else having a really hard time communicating with recruiters during the interview process lately? I’m getting ghosted, ignored and/or given misinformation about timelines and next steps. I’ve been on the hiring manager side and know that things change and are equally frustrating but just shocked at how I’m being treated as a candidate for roles I’m being strongly considered for.

I got contacted by a recruiter about a role at an agency. It’s a lateral title move (maybe a salary bump) and I’m not unhappy at my job, but I generally have a rule of taking every call. I’m 4 interviews in - at the assignment / offer stage and I’m increasingly uneasy. Culture feels a little toxic, the work isn’t super exciting, lots of turnover etc. Thinking I should pull out as to no waste time. Any reason not to that I’m missing (aside from bridge burning?)

To the hiring manager asking me to complete a written assignment that includes case studies of my best work; my point of view on what makes a successful campaign; examples of brands that are getting it right and why; examples of brands that are getting it wrong and what I’d change; plus, a proposed timeline, staffing plan, budget breakdown, and strategy outline for a fictitious client: Who hurt you? To other people going through something similar: I see you and promise to never do this.

How do I quit a job after 3 months delicately/professionally? Never been in this situation before, I started a new agency job in March and have pretty much been miserable since. While my boss senses that I am not be too happy in the role, we’ve never been able to openly discuss it in depth. Anyway, I just got offered a new role that seems like a better fit. When I give my notice, should I refuse to tell my current boss where I’m going out of fear of retaliation?

Left an in house UX job a few months ago after nearly five years and see the ‘updated’ requisition for backfill was turned into a junior role (used to be Sr. Manager). Why don’t companies see the value of design leadership?! It totally reinforced that going back agency side was the right move. I’m baffled so many folks view in house as this amazing sanctuary, I had the opposite experience.

Converting on a freelance-to-perm role, and the agency offered $10k less than my low range. I like the people but don’t love the client, and I’ve got enough cushion for a month or two. Do I: a) feel grateful for a full-time offer during an uncertain time, and just accept? b) counter with an argument about my existing value to the account, knowing that they probably won’t come up the full $10k? c) stand firm on my range and tell them I’m prepared to walk if it doesn’t work for them?
