Joining competitor, boss was shocked and didn't expect to lose me to competitor. I stated reasons as step-up opportunity, project focus, pay but boss is not convinced. Competitor has similar branding, more niche focus. Getting promoted to one level up is the key reason for me. Am I missing any thought process?

Hello 🐠, I have been on a project that I do not like, has absolutely obliterated my work life balance, and put me under a lot of stress. Not to say this doesn’t happen a lot in our job, but I have an opportunity to go back to an old client that I loved. My current project leadership knows the date I’m set to roll off, but have been hinting they won’t let me leave because I’m good at my job. I am so desperate to leave and have been advised by multiple colleagues to do so. What do I do??

In-House legal/talent recruiters completely ghosting during the interview process-- What gives? It's happened a disturbing number of times during my job hunt. They ghost after requesting an initial interview. They canceled an interview 10 minutes beforehand and then ghosted. They ghosted after saying I'd interview with the hiring manager. I get that the position was either filled or there were changed circumstances, but maybe some courtesy/professionalism toward the applicants? Be better.
