Until I have an interview…. I don’t even consider it in contention

Honestly it depends on the organization. The bigger the org/company the longer I will wait to hear back. In my experience the more people the process has to include the slower it moves. However if it's an independent practice or something I usually give it max 10 days. I try to be accommodating but you've also got to move on with your life.

I wait a week for the first follow-up and another week for the second. I'm sure it's a bit much for some places, but others have appreciated what they see as enthusiasm for the role. Like others said, though, considering the size and nature of the organization is crucial, too.

Depends - I know some places have had hiring freezes, others have been hiring non-stop. It seems like it varies but I usually expect to wait up to a month before I hear anything

I usually wait like 10-14 business days

I wait about 2 weeks total. However, if I haven't been offered at least a phone screen after a week I pretty much know that's not the position for me.

helpful

Exactly, tbh I just stop expecting stuff after the first call and am pleasantly surprised when something comes through

I would say two weeks max. Sometimes I follow up with the hiring manager to see if the position has been filled.

A few weeks. I'm a recruiter hiring PTs. What state are you from?

IQVIA took 1 year for them to give me an offer. They would use Aston Carter who would send a WhatsApp message once in 3 months. Wasted a year with this then said to the manager at the final interview "I'm a fresher and so i will not be able to answer such questions".. i aced the test rounds 🤣 i regret nothing.

Any tips on how you start networking after mat leave and just join the company aka newbie? Esp to get local project assignment or find opportunities for internal role.

In my late 20's, but I've lived in my current city (nonUS) my whole life.
I was really looking forward to moving to NYC and landed a job there earlier this year although I'm still WFH and not in the US yet.

A recruiter reached out to me for a new role but it would be in my old city.

I'd be pretty fine with both roles themselves.
But the NYC one would pay about 140$ TC (not sure about bonus yet, this is a guess), and the non-NYC one would be maybe $25-30 more. Is the $ worth the city sacrifice?

31 years old and stuck in a team and role currently that is not growing. I came from the industry and joined consulting at 25. Six years later I feel I have stagnated while people who went to school with me and even those who are younger are now senior managers and directors.

I know comparison is the thief of joy but how do I cope with this embarrassing situation and feeling of failure. I am looking for exits but this mental pressure is bearing down heavily.
