Do recruiters or interviewers typically outright ask where else you are interviewing? Or is that out of the norm?

They’ll ask so have an answer ready. My go to is “I’m not necessarily looking to leave my current job, but looking for an excellent opportunity. I knew I had to apply for this position because blah blah blah”

Hahaha I like this answer, stealing it

I tell them yes I am looking , even if I’m not looking. This gives me leverage when negotiating, I can say “ this company offered me $$ or I have a pending offer can you hurry up and make a decision “

Be careful with that, it’s a small industry if you’re BSing pretty east to find out.

I’d just be straight up, I just wouldn’t disclose “feel comfortable sharing” with who exactly. Always go into a situation with bargaining chips on the table.

Makes sense… I wasn’t sure how to take that. Thanks!

Alright so there’s a thing called reclaim my status. If you had a reason why you lost status in the last year or two like COVID, baby, new job, etc. You need to submit some basic documentation and they give you that status for 3 months with a DRASTICALLY lower threshold to make the status permanent and even higher tiers are much easier to obtain during those 3 months. Google “reclaim my status Delta”

Planing on moving to NYC in the next 3 years with my husband.

If I stay at my current job, I’ll be manager by the time I leave for NYC or should I make the jump to B4 soon? Does “B4 preferred” outweigh my chances even if I’m a manager when comes down to it?
