Yes. They like to keep you hot and get a list of ppl when they know they will have more business but haven’t finalized all the parts. If it seems like a good fit might be worth waiting a little bit but don’t hold your breath.

It’s like dating. Keep your expectations low and if it happens, it happens. You do your part and if it’s reciprocated you can appreciate it the way it should be. If not, grieve for a day or so and get back on the saddle.

Here’s my perspective - as someone that manages a large team and P&L - there are often a lot of stars that need to align to hire, unfortunately. It could be any number of factors: clients waffling on signing off on a new project, margins not lining up with projections, staggering onboarding new team members, etc. At the end of the day, it’s not a reflection on you and, honestly, is probably equally as frustrating to the hiring team.

Thank you for your perspective! I do have to remember to not take it so personal.

Hi guys! Had a call with a recruiter and they asked for my email to send me the link to apply. Haven’t heard since the initial call, thinking I might have failed the screening call. Would that deter you from applying online? For context, recruiter reached out first and the company was not on my radar before. After some research I got interested, but haven’t articulated that clearly enough on my call (didn’t expect I was going to be asked questions and thought I would just hear about openings).

Hi Fishes,

Can I use referals to apply before 6 months? Or should I wait for 6 more months?

I’m sure this varies but I’d be curious to hear a few takes: how formal of a “recommender packet” are you putting together?

Both of my recommenders have MBA backgrounds and currently work with me, so I don’t want to make this overkill but want to make sure I give sufficient info as well

Protip: If you're trying to get a referral/coffee chat at an obscure company or one that doesn't have a lot of Fishbowl user participation, you can "search" for the company name you're targeting, filter by "people," and now you see everyone on the app who works for that company. You can scroll down to the title most relevant to the position you're seeking, and cold message them for a referral. Just be extra polite, because you're reaching out to them, not the other way around. E.g., Starbucks:

While submitting a salary counter on a role I was offered, I listed valid points on why I deserved a higher sum for the responsibilities. Recruiter brought up my diversity being a key negotiator and awkwardly asked me “what are you” since the person making financial decisions will “want to know.” I am a “racially ambiguous” POC and while I answered in order to save face, this made me extremely uncomfortable. I accepted the job but can’t shake how inappropriate and dehumanizing this felt.
