I've never told my recruiter, usually they just fall off

Have you figured out who the hiring manager is?

I’m familiar with it, but I am a young, fledgling salesperson and I haven’t had the opportunity to use it as of yet. Thanks for the tip!

Ah, sick! Now they have sent me an email to set up multiple times, where i can take a one hour video interview, and they’ll “coordinate with our team”. I can’t imagine doing this another 4 times…

I have interviewed with Kainos, Alight Solutions and OneSource Virtual Inc for a payroll consultant position, currently have 1.5 YOE in Workday. If you had to pick, which one would be your top 2 choice? They’re all paying same amount and it’s a 41% increase. Also, I will be getting married and starting a family soon if that makes a difference. Thank you
