A recruiter texted me “ Hi (name) ! I’m hoping to get your references done today or first thing in the morning. Once these are completed we hope to present you an offer” am I reading this right? Is this a good sign?

Thank you! they just asked me if I had a potential start date in mind so I think things are moving along :)

Of course it's a good sign. Says so in the message - you're getting an offer unless one of your references screws you. Good luck! 🍀

Try to ask recruiter what sort of reference they will be doing or what references should expect to touch on. prep your references on the same based on what you get .

Good Morning all,

Since I pivoted into TA (from the Wild West known as Finance) Tech Recruiting has always been the goal. But I’m having a hard time finding a way to get into that space (I do understand there’s a hiring crisis). Nevertheless, does anyone know of tech companies that are hiring? I may be low on the experience side so I’m willing to look at contract/ entry roles as well. Also, any advice will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
