My RP did that to be promoted to partner. Then left anyway. Genius

Yeah, you better be ready to leave if you do that. It's rare that we will match an offer for people below a Senior 3 though. We wish them well and hire someone in their place.

Worked for me....twice. Neither time did I ask for or expect it. Was just trying to make financially driven decisions.

Just be prepped to leave when they don't try to give a raise/promo. It looks bad if you come back and stay if they don't match your competing offer

You can only do it once. A partner told me that someone tried it twice and pissed him off - he fired the guy instead.

Is senior 3 a first year senior? Or a 3rd year senior?

Tried once and got matched. Next time I am definitely leaving.

Transition to the big 4 or very small boutique firm? Looking to move due to being pigeonholed in BA work, low pay compared to the industry, and just generally needing a change. I passed all interviews for a boutique, 30 person company. They are preparing a formal offer and final call for this Tuesday. At my lowest ask, it’s a 15% pay increase. And I will be able to stay more of a generalist, doing more senior work. I have a Deloitte interview tomorrow for a SC position. Continued

Hi, has anyone else been having difficulty securing a good job after graduating, and if so, how did you over come that challenge? I’m graduating in 2 weeks with a Poli Sci degree and I have had two separate interviews, the first being a very demanding law job that would have paid me almost 50% less than the pay rate of someone with experience—and the other a dead end because the interviewer felt my Poli Sci degree didn’t qualify me for a government job.
