Generally, does it look bad on a resume to go from a from full-time job to freelance? If that’s what you want, I don’t think it should, but folks might think you got fired or randomly quit or something.

Not at all. I would probably question why someone jumped from job to job over a short period of time. Not b/c someone went freelance. It’s a lifestyle choice

If you’ve never been laid off in this business, you haven’t been in this business too long. No one really cares if you went from FT to FL. If I am asked, I tell them the truth: my former agency went after seniors with high salaries, which is typical in our business.

Hi, I'm planning to target a product based company for the position of a frontend developer. I am going through JS, ReactJS, NodeJS, Express, and networking concepts.

But, since I'll be aiming for a JS job, I'm not sure whether I should practice ds algo using Java or JS. Please help me decide. YOE=1, working on .net and sql maintenance project in Deloitte.

I’ve had radio silence from a small investment bank for about a week now. I’ve completed several rounds of interviews, but last Thursday the firm reposted the job I’ve been interviewing for. On Friday the headhunter said that they’re not sourcing new candidates and it’s probably just LinkedIn automatically refreshing the listing. She said they had a busy week last week but will make a final decision this week - is the delay and radio silence a bad sign or is this typical for experienced hiring?

I just had two of the weirdest interview. I was interviewing for a payroll systems mgmt role and the first guy was a finance mgr and he didn't ask me anything. I basically interviewed him. The 2nd interviewer was the hr systems lead. She had read my resume and was super weirded out that my current role is the same as hers. I think she thought I was interviewing to replace her. She kept asking me what I would be doing. Like dude, do you not know why you are even interviewing me? Hard pass.

Anyone have any idea when the hiring freeze might end within AWS ProServ? I’m currently at Amazon and have a TS clearance, PMP & CSM.
