No we just let expert networks do the sourcing for us. But we do conduct the interviews ourselves

It’s honestly pretty dumb, at least on the cases I’ve been on, a really small proportion of interviews come from our own sourcing. Vast majority of interviews (90%+) are expert sourced anyway, I don’t know why we spend so much Associate time on it.

We use expert networks, but if their findings need supplementing, we source ourselves via LinkedIn. One project we had, GLG couldn’t find someone that fit our needs, but I found a few using LinkedIn recruiter

the strategy part of ZS does alot of MR and we do interviews ourselves, so much to the point that idk if I'm a consultant or market researcher 😅 we don't do sourcing though, we have recruiters for that

All of my friends and seems like everyone around is looking for a job change as I see on a average, everyone is getting close to 100% hike in new company, is this just a bubble, because hiring and job is wfh, or this trend continue even next year once the physical offices open up? I'm going through a bad FOMO, seeing everyone change companies and getting double the pay. Tried giving interviews, but many rejected me just because of my 90days notice period. What should I do? YOE-2.5
