Curious if anyone knows how Spotify handles recruitment and hiring? Is it like agencies where you basically have to connect with recruiters? Or does their careers page actually churn out any responses?

I would imagine it’s impossible to get a job there without a strong internal referral. It’s got to be one of the most applied-to companies in the world.

Spotify recruiter cold emailed me once for a contract to perm role, so it does happen. Sounded like a cool gig but was surprisingly very low paying (like fresh out of school rate but they were looking for someone with 6yrs exp) so ultimately had to turn it down.

A friend applied for three different roles through the regular careers page over the course of a few years. First went into the void, second she made it to mid-stage interviews, third she got the offer ... turned it down because they wouldn’t match her salary, then they came back and said they’d match because they wanted her so much. All without internal references.

Married 1.5 years long distance. I took a job to be with him that pays twice what he earns now. I’ve been sharing every detail of my job hunt, interviews to salary negotiations. He has been very supportive but sometimes I feel guilty I’m rubbing it into his face and I have goals about going up the ladder fast, get/ experience the fanciest things and reaching a certain role/salary in life. I fear when I move in things may change, I’ll feel held back, may need to take low pay to feel we’re equal

Looking for some advice. I made 150k on GME but then lost 100k in the hype. Despite coming out net positive I feel like an idiot for being where I started after gaining so much. I recognize I broke a lot of my trading rules and I essentially was trading on emotion which lead to my loss. If it matters my portfolio is about 80k and I make about the same in salary. So this was the most money I’ve ever handled or even traded. Advice?
