Currently looking for a job opportunity specific to Talent Acquisition/Recruiting, as I want to get out of the Generalist realm.
From the employers I've recently interviewed with, they average 15-20 reqs at a time.

Any tips for transitioning from slow recruiting (around 4 at a time) in the generalist role to a high number of reqs?
This is the way I want my career to transition but I think it may be a challenging adjustment.

Get organised, use the ATS, learn to prioritise, and build relationships with stakeholders. Do what you say you will do and always go above and beyond. Pick up tips and tricks from successful TA colleagues around you. If you’re interested in a fast paced TA role, with great candidate experience and a high touch service, send me a message. Good luck!


I think in today’s climate you’d be lucky to stay around 15-20 reqs. From what I’ve seen large organizations are around 40-50. Myself and many of my colleagues have been over 100 the last few years.


So, I’d say in many mature Talent orgs the old standard of 20-30 reqs isn’t done. At all. I have no more than 10 at a time which gives the ability to properly source, consult, and efficiently run then entire Talent process. This newer practice has actually made filling roles much faster and improved candidate experience. This coming from newer top tech companies.

Stay organized, stay communicative and build good relationships w managers! Spreadsheets will be your friend.


Agency recruiting would give you that exp


I started out in an agency and it was the best thing that could’ve happened. Learned fundamentals and properly prioritize. Previous colleagues that didn’t come from an agency background struggled tremendously and had more difficult time becoming a trusted Talent partner with product groups.

This might have been already asked so apologies in advance, but has anyone gone back to public/advisory from industry? I know there are a lot of boomerangs out there but I mean more specifically advisory or due diligence? Currently in Assurance and want to experience private industry as either a Senior Accountant or SEC reporting role but don’t want to shut myself from these other opportunities? Or should I persue advisory first and then private accounting if it doesn’t seem like a good fit?


Physician Assistant salaries in the Chicago Area? I’ve practiced at an AMC for 5.5 years and make around 116k salary. Outpatient surgical sub specialty, but the same salary “formula” as my previous role in urgent care in the same system. Another AMC offered me 124k 9 months ago for a similar role - which I turned down due to some red flags during interviews. Recently got a 10k retention bonus when I voiced my intent to leave but still feel underpaid as I’m literally keeping my practice afloat.

Hey everyone please consider this as my Hail Mary.
My notice period got over a month ago.
I resigned from the service based company i was working in because at the time I had an offer. They later mentioned that the offer is contingent on the fact that I get an early release from the 90 days NP, which didn't happen and they ghosted me.
I feel utterly helpless. I have been applying and getting shortlisted almost everywhere but nothing has panned out.
