Resume gap: My position will be abruptly end in December (was informed this week). However, I won't be interview ready in the next 2 weeks. So how bad does a gap of 1-2 months appear to tech recruiters? Common knowledge is it is a disadvantage to the candidate from a salary negotiation process. I'm also told hiring decisions at places like AWS & GCP take time and it might be a few months before an offer letter is received.

When I interviewed, I literally said “EY is the place I want to retire at” (and I genuinely meant it). When I was staff, I thought I would quit after I make SM for a few years. Now as a Senior 3 everyday - “I hate my job. I won’t get promoted to Manager next year. I hate my life. When can I quit??”

Been getting a ton of recruiter outreach messages lately, and a lot of them are attractive roles that I would never even be on a shortlist for. I'm a mid-range analyst at best. Anyone else getting these messages too? Is the market really that thin? I find it a bit unbelievable because I spent two years unemployed and barely getting interviews prior to COVID.

I was interviewing for McKinsey in the defense and security industry (clearance needed) and thought I did absolutely great on the first business case. The second, however, was with a principal that had very different political views from my own (I’d done some research on her LinkedIn). The business case felt different from any others that I had studied and felt like an attempt to get political without directly doing so. I was quickly rejected following the 2nd interview. Should I try reapplying?
Expecting an offer from Microsoft federal consulting, but got a non specific answer about wlb (how often on client site) during the interview.

My wife has an e-tourist visa approved on Oct 22, and we have an Air India flight booked in a week from SF -> Delhi.

Deloitte 🐠 - Recruiter reached out to set up interviews and sent a link to another application system that asks if I’ve applied before. I did earlier this year (March) but didn’t get any response. Should I put this down and if so will it disqualify me?
Anyone have advice on how to get better at selling yourself? I've had quite a few interviews/job leads since losing my job in June, but I think I'm struggling to present myself as impressive. I'm slowly realizing my biggest weakness in this industry appears to be that I'm bad at PR-ing myself.
