Has anyone used Toptal for job hunting? Their process seems time consuming so I want to know if it's worth it. Time is limited in my current season of life. Spouse and I both work and we have 2 littles at home. I'm miserable and have stagnated at my job and need a change.

Hi, I considered using them myself. I’ve reached out to them to learn more about their vetting process, did some research online about them and decided no to move forward. Their vetting process can take 2 to 5 weeks (other platforms take less time to vet their candidates) and I read once you join, their recruiters try hard to convince you not to charge more than the average being charged by other professionals in your area. I’m might re-consider them in the future but for now I’ll rather use LinkedIn.


It’s worth it. You get to secure good clients on long term projects on agreed upon terms and not deal with BS. If you’re looking for stability, this is the best platform. The whole thing about them telling people to lower their prices is BS.

Any white males on here dating Asian females, specifically Chinese? I’m a white male with a Chinese girlfriend and I’m a bit worried about meeting the parents (they are in China; we are in Australia). They’ve said to my girlfriend that they’d prefer her to date Chinese so they are able to communicate with her boyfriend, but other than that it seems ok. Does anyone have experience in this situation? How did it turn out?
