Former recruiter here. You can make a lot of money at a boutique firm doing retained or contingent search. That said, you can also start out as an analyst grunt at a larger firm and not make a lot of money until you get into the at-risk compensation schemes (senior levels) Extroverts with amazing networking skills-only field – I self-selected out because even though I could clear 15 to 20,000 per month pre-tax In good months I could also make zero if the candidates were not there, and at the time I did not have much of a network. Extremely competitive and you gotta sell sell sell.

Pros - they seem to have a good work life balance, finger on the pulse of what’s out there, relatively low stress, possibility of high pay since most work on commission Cons - possibility of low pay if you don’t place enough people, I’d imagine it’s hard to go back to industry / consulting in a non-HR role

I am one one of those laid off from Deloitte on H1-b (stamped) visa. My question is, if I join a consultancy and initiate H1-b transfer with them, then in one month I find full time job outside. Can the consultancy stop me from joining the full time role? I have heard couple of instances where consultancies not releasing the i797 approval document. If the consultancy does not release my i797, can my transfer process with the full time job happen? Please help - I have 40 days left to find new job

Hello 🐠 - I’m a consultant (5 yoe in consulting) trying to exit into tech roles at midsized tech companies into consulting friendly functions (BizOps, some PMM). Have found the process to be incredibly draining and not getting any traction given my background. I’m not an expert in the industry and having a hard time positioning myself for success. Anyone open to talking about their journey (short call or email) for advice? Would love to learn what more I can do! Thanks.
