Any tips on how to do a stealth job search while at a firm? Trying to relocate to a different market but have a demanding BigLaw job in NYC. Bad idea to request interviews by videoconference?

Video conference is 100% reasonable to ask for until you’re later in the process (final full day interview stage).

like

Typically firms don’t request in-person for first rounds unless you’re in the market already. Most firms do phone or video conferences before flying candidates in for a 2nd round in-person interview. I’ve been able to coordinate candidates’ travel with 2-3 firms, where the candidate meets with a few firms on one trip, with shared costs between firms anonymously.

Also, should I update my LinkedIn so that recruiters know I’m open for work?

Interview went well, Total 7 ppl interviewed me. I accepted offer verbally. Then I got promoted and I shared that to recruiter and my current compensation and offer are same. I shared my difficulty to recruiter as it will be a lateral move. He said he will get back to me in 1 day. Its been a week I haven't heard back.

It’s very discouraging to continuously receive these rejection emails. With 9 years of supply chain experience, I am not sure why I would not be able to at least get an interview for entry level roles that require no experience. Not just this one pictured but others as well. I’ve applied to maybe 60 positions since May, both mid level and “entry” and no interviews. I’ve had my resume professionally re-written twice. Not sure where the disconnect is. Anyone else going through this same thing?
