F that. Don't hide who you are. If you are married or not or if you are "old" (according to 🐠 anyone over 40 is ancient - which is bullshit) or young. Be you and be awesome. This business is full of bullshitters we don't need more.

I've found that being who I am makes me a magnetic. Some are drawn to me in the same way one would be drawn into warching a train going off the tracks in an 800 foot fireball. And some are completely repelled. I'm fine with that. I don't wanna wear a mask at work.

It's not what, it's where. Hide in the hiring persons office under their desk and when they walk in and sit down pop up from between their legs and squeal 'hire me'. You want to make yourself memorable you know, the other candidates won't stand a chance.

Hiding anything gives marginal returns in the long run. If you get hired under false pretenses you or your agency or both will end up regretting the decision and then you're back where you're started looking for a place that works for YOU. Be honest and up front. If that doesn't get you the first available job, it's probably a good thing. Go for the right job.

What factors would you consider for staying back at your firm if they almost match the offer? Key differences - 1. New firm has a bigger brand value. Might open doors in the future for bigger firms. 2. Current firm has excellent WLB and culture. 3. New firm in Metro, current in non-metro. Significant rent increase in metro. 4. Hikes and growth not good in the new firm. If I stay back I’d have the same scenario in current firm as well.
