At the start of the month, I spoke to a CD about a spot at his agency, an agency I really want to be a part of. He said my salary request was a bit high & told me his limit. Fine, still interested. After a couple of weeks of nothing, their recruiter calls me on Thursday to tell me more about the role and the agency. Then says the salary parameters and it’s $5k less than what he said. I told her the number he gave & she said she’d talk to him. Did I just tryin my shot? And when should i follow up

I should add, my dilemma is I interviewed with another place last week on the same day and they have already requested a second interview for this week. I’d much rather go to the other shop and I’m trying to see if there is still interest from them before this place offers me something.

If you plan to leave your firm and your manager asks you why you're leaving, what do you say? I have a legitimate non-bridge-burning reason unrelated to comp or simply "big tech is better" reason. I have asked for more client facing exposure and haven't gotten it cause weird reasons, which was the factor that caused me to look for exits in the first place. But I'm not sure if I should bring this up. Should I just be vague and say "looking for a new chapter"?

I suck at case interviews. :( Engineering undergrad and currently in a tech consulting role. Feel like I lack general business knowledge. Had an interview today for a Strategy position and feeling discouraged. I am great at setting up a framework but I struggle with progressing the case (anticipating what’s next) and the math. What resources can I use that don’t require spending $200-400 on a course? Or, if it really is a matter of taking a course, which one should I take?

Reviewing resumes and I see more and more frequent that people last one year or less at a job and move on to the next. Is that the new norm? I’m a millennial but my last job I was with for over 4 years. Can I ask in the interview why they’ve moved around so much? Or find a nicer way of asking that. I’m definitely looking for longevity not a hopper.
