Application at LEK still sitting at “Application Received” two weeks later … is that basically a no or are they slow for the holiday season? Do you recommend I reach out to the regional recruiting email on their website?

I know nothing about LEK but two weeks is barely any time, do you know how many applications firms receive and how few recruiters there are to deal with all of them?

UPDATE: For anyone curious, I just got a response back today from LEK recruiting stating that they have begun resume screening for full-time roles and one should expect to hear back within the next “few days” regarding next steps

Yeah for for an Associate role interview track, not interested anymore

I know this varies based on the company but besides project needs from the hiring manager, does anybody take multiple months between when your background check clears and you actually start? I don’t want to immediately jump from job to job but not sure if taking some time off is generally accepted.

Reminder to everyone: use your 2021 vacation time. Don’t let it pass you by just because you’re not traveling. Take a long weekend once a month to nap and eat chips in sweat pants all day. We all need to do our part to normalize self care, and sitting at home doing “nothing” is just as worthy of a vacation day as pina coladas on the beach.

I’ve been waiting for security clearance since July and just found out I’m pregnant after trying for a year. I’m hoping clearance will be granted in early spring 2021 and I can start work soon after. Thankfully taking unpaid time off isn’t a big issue (won’t be eligible for FMLA or parental leave), but worried about timing and telling HR & my supervisor. I’m planning to tell them once I start; know timing isn’t ideal and stressed about starting off on the wrong foot. Any advice?

Unless you’ll be committing malpractice by taking time off, here’s a reminder: you can’t take care of your clients if you’re burnt out. Turn your phone off, you don’t owe anyone an explanation.
