Hey gang, when applying for a job, what’s the etiquette for connecting directly with the person who you would be reporting to through LinkedIn? Would it be considered creepy/ unprofessional? And if not, what’s the best way to approach it?
It’s a role that I’d be a good fit for, but it’s at a company that gets a lot of applicants so I’m looking for opportunities to get a leg up.
I have two mutuals with this person, but I barely know them so can’t really ask for an intro.
Is it a red flag when someone reaches out to schedule an interview on a Saturday? (On a holiday weekend to boot?)
Is that person just trying to get shit done, maybe forgot what day it is, or is that a sign that the company doesn’t respect work-life balance?
Are recruiters especially whack in this time or am I imagining? I’m in process of moving forward with technical interviews, but I can’t get a confirmed response on an agreed time. I just got a blank email message response- no joke. Like what. Where’s the sense of urgency in attracting qualified candidates?

Have my closing interview with Accenture next week. So far the Director and MD I have met with have both liked me and the recruiter has said that they have both given me a thumbs up and that the upcoming closing interview with the MD is just a conversation. From my research I’ve also read that it’s just a sanity check to make sure I’m not a nutcase. Of course anything can happen, but I’m expecting an offer. (Cont)

Did anyone else graduate law school and pass the bar right as pandemic started? Are you still unemployed? I have been applying since February 2020 and am trying not to give up because I am an amazing attorney and just need a chance to prove how great I am.

Any advice? Help?
Does anyone here have an insight to what it’s like working at Zoom and specifics about benefits? I’m currently in the process of interviewing for an IT position.

I left Audit at a midsize firm to join KPMG erp implementation consulting about 6 months ago. So far they seem to only want to staff me on projects with a heavy focus on technical accounting and audit. Spoke to a lot of others who have left and seems like being pigeonholed or staffed on projects not related to the actual core work of the practice is the common reason. I've been on the fence about whether I should stay and hope to be staffed on better projects in the future or leave soon...

What tf is up with the industry lately? I’ve never seen it this bad. Where are the jobs?
Guys and girls, let me tell you a theory.
It's dabur man theory.
Girls always fall for bad guys.
A topper girl always fall for a back bencher who barely passess an exam.
A good traditional girl always fall for a guy with all the bad habits in this world.
And guess what it's them, the honest and good guys and with good habits are left behind.
Girls in 18s want a good looking guy, and the same girls in 25s want a rich guy and the same girls in 30s want a good guy.
I asked for relocation to IBM after getting an offer.
I got new offer letter with preffed location.
But older one status is like no longer in under consideration.
Thank you for your interest in IBM. Unfortunately, your application is no longer being considered for this position. We appreciate your time and hope you consider other opportunities we have available.
For new one the status is offered.
Do I need to worry abt it?? Is that like the offer is cancelled??

My friends adopted a baby (who's now a toddler) and just found out that the mom passed. It was semi open and they saw her a few times during the first year but then she dropped off and has just now recently passed, father was unknown. They've saved the obit and the kid is 20mo rn so not really having full convos, is there anything else they should do in the moment? Maybe kids book recs on this?
I got offers from Capgemini and HCL with the highest CTC in HCL. I negotiated with Capgemini and they matched the HCL offer.
Now HCL is ready to revise offer again.
Please suggest Is it good idea to take HCL offer now after negotiating with Capigemini.
As far as I heard HCL is having good projects in my domain.
Question here - been at a new job for a bit and have discovered that the culture is extremely misogynistic. It’s been 6 months and I have had to go to HR twice. I want to leave, but don’t want to seem like a jumper - but then again, what does it say about a future employer if they judge me for leaving a bad work environment? Feeling conflicted. Thoughts ?
Cover letters for job applications... do you do one for every job? And if so what is the typical level of formality (i.e., standard 4 paragraph structure or just one super targeted paragraph about that company)?

I currently run my own marketing agency, but I’ve scaled down to only consulting and I’m considering going and working for a Big 4. I’d like to expand my connections, work for something greater than myself, and have a more secure stream of income. Can I get a thread with pros and cons of working for a big firm?

Don’t understand why would a big 4 hire someone and not assign a project/client directly, instead have to go through the bench process and then wait to be assigned.
Next year, I'm picking my bracket based on which coaches wear suits. (And yes, Belichicks cutoff hoodies are an atrocity.)
How badly do you have to screw up at a big 4 as a manager to be fired? I've heard of pips at staff/senior level. Would you get put on one at a manager level first or just get fired?
