What is the appropriate amount of time to follow up with a company after they've verbally told you they would be giving you an offer? I don't want to look desperate as I know that's not great for salary negotiation but it's been a week and I really want to follow up!
I know this isn’t exactly an investment question, but when student loans unfreeze, should I pay down a chunk of my high-interest (>7%) loans before refinancing or just go straight for the refinance? Will paying some of them down hell me secure a better rate? Any other tips? For background I have $125k in loans from undergrad and law school but am making biglaw salary Thanks in advance!

I work at a small shop, and my salary was cut 20% bc.. 2020. The shop has sustained, but not making as much as projected. I love my job and the people, I’m closely connected to leadership and know they genuinely would love to bring my salary back, and more if they were in a financial spot to do so. I don’t want to leave, so considering what my options to make it work. Maybe asking for an extra day off so I can freelance, other ideas? Advice on how to approach the conversation?
I wanted to flag so others can know, I live in mcol and I just received an offer for 120k base and a 15k signing bonus. I have three years of experience. I asked for a signing bonus and a 110k salary. If you are a senior, you should definitely be applying and just see what comes up. Crazy the market for seniors right now

Speaking of Glassdoor, how helpful do you find their salary estimates? How else do you gauge a good salary?
Received a job offer that was same title and pay. After hearing more about the position, I felt that it was more senior. Asked if they were open to bringing me on as a senior, and they happily agreed….. except when I got the new offer, it was still the original salary lol. I don’t want to come off as greedy, but this feels odd. I really love the place and the people I’ve met, but this gives me doubts
A recruiter reached out to me directly from IBM Canada to interview for a Cloud Support Senior Program Manager role. I’ve got just under 10 years of professional work experience - 2 and half as a PM and have worked vendor before. I also have my PMP and disciplined agile certs. Can anyone give me insight on this role and what could be comp? I’m in Toronto and also wanted to know the culture and crowd.
Have an offer in industry. It’s a relatively new company that is growing fast and lots of opportunity to move up quickly and make a difference. Salary increase wouldn’t be large but enough to make a difference. My heart wants to do it but there is risk involved - not as much stability as the Big 4 company I work for and I’m supporting a family. What do I do? Follow my passion or stay in the safe zone given things are still up in the air with Covid? I appreciate your opinion fishes!
If you could make the same salary you do now doing something mindless, like waiting tables, would you do it?

Hi fish need some advice. I want to get a job in the finance industry, specifically in quant. I don’t know many people outside of consulting so I’ve been applying blindly without a referral which hasn’t worked. What are some tips to help expand my network?
I’ll be having a convo next with where I tell my manager I got another offer, how do I ask for a counter offer without demanding one? All the things I’m looking for (WFH, title change) are things I’ve been asking for. For example,I’ve been doing the EP role for a year without the promotion.
So I was given x$ for relocation and was asked to submit receipts. Can I expense my security deposit towards this?
Has WFH improved your love, married life?
Ex-Consulant here that now works for a big name Real Estate Investment Trust. Saw on LinkedIn that EY has an America’s REIT Leader. Didn’t know that much attention was paid to the REIT space. Are there really consulting teams dedicated to the REIT space in the Big 4? Love working for a REIT and would love to jump back to consulting if there were teams dedicated to the industry.
Why do recruiters/team members not pass over feedback. Thought I absolutely crushed the interviews but got turned away. Just trying to improve...

My SM passed my idea off as his on… failed epically at the execution and didn’t have information for the client. He then attempted to blame me for his failure in front of the client. How do you deal with this
Folks who’ve done their MS here (not MBA) - With 2-3 yrs of experience do you think a 1 page CV works or does one elaborate into 2 pages atleast. Also looking for perspective from folks who handle tech recruiting.
