Ghosting is just how recruiters say “they said no."

A creative saying it, just condones it.

Why are you wasting time with the middle guy? Shouldn’t you be a guru at landing jobs as a “connection director”? Just sayin

Because the role wasn’t posted online by the internal talent team until after I’d already interviewed with the recruiter. I don’t check job boards regularly as I’m in no rush to land a new role, so I just saw it yesterday when LI sent me an email with new job postings. I assume they posted it because they weren’t satisfied with what the recruiter sent them, so I wasn’t sure if I should even bother.

Submitted my resignation this week .. leaving consulting after very fulfilling 4.5 years. Though a lot of us dislike the long hours and demanding deadlines, I have to say that I learnt things that I would have never learned in the industry. Very happy to go through consulting in my career and having made some soild lifelong connections. Exiting to corporate strategy role. A big thank you to this community to help each other in so many ways.

Feeling left out of the great resignation. I’ve submitted applications around, but no call backs yet! I’m more of a “core consultant” and don’t have any specific tech skills or certs, so that could be a factor… but I’ve seen so many others who are regarded as mediocre core consultants leaving for pay. Any thoughts or genuine advice?
