My partner and I have been getting contacted be recruiters and beginning to set up interviews. Truthfully, we don’t want to leave and want to continue doing the fun stuff we’re doing. Our reviews are coming up in a few weeks. Has anyone tried to be upfront with their managers about this in hopes of getting closer to the increase we’d get jumping ship? Or do you need an offer in hand to negotiate?

With the exception of 2 internships in my 10 year career, all of my jobs were acquired from referrals. I was qualified for all of the jobs I applied for, and had edited/tailored the resume to fit the job description for every application submitted. The only difference between getting an interview and not was the fact that I knew someone. It’s quite disheartening to think that background/experience and high performance didn’t matter when I applied without a referral

I followed up a week after my second interview at a mid size law firm and immediately received a response saying “everyone who spoke to me was duly impressed”. They want to ask me to come for a third interview. Although a 3rd interview is a good sign, it’s not a job offer. I would love to get your guys’s feedback, advice and suggestions for the interview. Like what to expect? Who and how many partners will be present? Type of Qs? Thank you in advance!

I currently work in house at a company with a fairly large legal group.

Just wanted to share a story here. I’ve been wanting to work for BCG since I was a junior in college. I never managed to even get an interview in undergrad. A year ago, I finally got an interview and I thought it was God opening a door for me. I practiced all day long for several weeks; I meditated and tried as hard as I possibly could. I got rejected and felt devastated. A year later, I interviewed again, but this time I just prayed “thy will be done” before the interview. Today, I got my offer

I interviewed for a full-time role (remote) but it was later revealed it would require relocation. I am not wanting to do that and they said I could come on as a contractor. The vendor I would go through provides benefits (medical, dental, PTO). What would be a realistic hourly rate to request/negotiate? I want to get as high as possible but also don’t want to settle for less than what I have to. For context, I am at 165k right now and the role would have been a pay cut to 135k (full-time).
