Do recruiters tend to ignore emails if they have no update for you? I’d prefer for them to tell me that rather than coming back out of nowhere with an “update”

During Rona, I've seen that to be the case.

Ghosted by one recruiter in March halfway through the interview process for a position and she ignores my two follow-up emails, just for her to reach out to me this week saying that position was canceled due to the economy.

Ghosted by another recruiter after the final round of interviews in February, and after she said they wanted to make an offer but a hiring freeze was being put into place and that she'd reach out to keep me updated. I've emailed her every 3-4 weeks since and no response.

At least with the first recruiter, she never said she'd keep me up to date... 🙄

Hi, anyone know anything about Sales Capture at Accenture? I’be been offered a role as sales enabler (role title is still unclear). The reason behind this is that I applied for a different job (SC) before the summer but didn’t get it, now they ask if I want to go into this role and they want to secure it soon. I know nothing about this role other than what the MD have described. They don’t have an ad for the position so I don’t know what I should think. Is it a good role or is it like a PA role?

Hi fishes. Wanting to teach myself some coding languages and would like advice on the benefits of starting with R vs Python? For context, I just find that I enjoy the quantitative work the most, and am pretty proficient today in SQL, Alteryx, tools at that level, so trying to expand a bit. Would love insights on what lends itself better to working in more data oriented roles in tech. Thanks!

I’ve just went through a very tough interview process at a top BB - the hiring MD wants to call me tomorrow. Is this a good sign?

Additionally, I’m also recruiting for a top PE shop. If given the chance, I’d perhaps take the PE offer, but am afraid that if I receive an offer from the BB, it may expire before I finish the process at the PE shop.

How should I respond to a (hopeful) offer given by the BB tomorrow?

Any advice would be much appreciated.
