Business on the top, some form of pants on the bottom. I mean, I don’t wear blazers, but putting on a nice sweater, a light layer of makeup, and trying to be more cheerful than usual has worked well for me during COVID-era interviews.

Do you guys ever just tell recruiters that the process is taking too long and withdraw your application? This guy made contact with me 2 weeks ago, said he’d get an interview set up with internal HR, then ghosted me, then appeared out of nowhere and told me I had a call with internal HR the next. There’s 4 more steps after this. It’s just too much. I know that’s a normal timeline, but the point is it just takes too long now.

Hi Dance Teachers! What have been your favorite “get to know you activities” over zoom on the first few days of school?

HR / Recruiters specifically - can you guys just please try to be honest with candidates and say its going to be a while before they hear back!! I dont know whats going on but interviewing with several major companies and having to chase down recruiters all day after they say they will follow/up on this or that day and then I dont hear from them for 3-4 days. I am trying to time my interviews/potential offers but they keep getting promises of follow-up on next steps and not hearing back

I'm applying for a job and there's a line item where they ask for desired compensation. Since the job posting doesn't include one & that role in particular doesn't appear on Glassdoor, is it ok to write something like "negotiable" or "based on budget allocated for this position"? Or should I just include a range? I don't want to ruin a chance at a higher salary range by selling myself short off the bat. I haven't applied to jobs in years so any advice you all could provide would be appreciated!

She went in 2017 with lymphoma. Not our first rodeo, but cancer sucks! Hug your pup.
