In a sticky situation where I have to disclose my interviews to my current company as I'm interviewing with a contracted partner. Been with my company for slightly over 3 years, and in my current role for 4 months so I don't have the full rapport to not feel like I'm burning the bridge by telling them I'm fielding offers elsewhere. Anyone been in a similar situation and willing to discuss how it went, or any advice/learnings?
I have been referred in Deloitte USI recently (a week back)! Thanks to the gentleman who referred me. I have got few positions that I could apply for. However, there are no further update regarding the interview schedule/screening process etc.. Is this normal?
This “resume writer” expert swears my resume layout is what’s preventing me from landing interviews. How about I get a 2nd set of eyes from here for feedback instead? I’m a copywriter and I know the portfolio can be more valuable than the resume. I’ll drop you a link. TIA. 🙏🏼

Had my final interview (Loop interview with 4 people) yesterday and I feel it went great but I’m still so anxious!! I’ve read lots of people saying they didn’t hear back until Day 5. Will they wait until Day 5 even if they aren’t offering you the job? Or is it a good sign if you don’t hear back immediately? Trying to read between the lines here…

Trying to break into big tech/FAANG. 3 YOE particularly in the GRC space of InfoSec. However I’m also technical and have learned a lot and proven myself to be a top performer. Granted, I know I’m extremely young, but what are the best strategies to deploy? I feel as if my applications go into the void every time I apply for a perfect position. Thanks I’m advance for the advice :D
Why do FAANG companies pay above market not just for Eng talent but other non-core functions? Like HR or other functions that are largely similar anywhere else

Hi all, looking for advice on whether to seek a CS degree. I’m an older guy about to successfully make a career shift in to SWE. I graduated bootcamp last may and I’m about to start my first jr. engineering role at Oracle OCI. I’m in my late 30’s with a couple of kids. Is it worth it for me to seek a CS degree at this time? I’m not afraid of the extra work, but wondering if the eventual payoff would worth the effort. Also I’m concerned about having the skills needed to get Sr. quicker.

Hi, looking for advice. Got a phone screen for a Level 65 role at Microsoft in Cloud Operations. What is the best way to prepare? I have done similar for Amazon in the past and they test against Leadership Principles.. I will search online but checking what specific prep to do for a role at this level. And is it fair to think that a Level 65 Director at Microsoft is similar to a L8 at Amazon? As context am L7 at AWS…
