I met the best head hunters. They never gave me shit. All my career, I got hired by my own. They are useless.


Fake news. Learn how to use your people better. 2 major agency roles early on in my career. Coach those "sound bites." Be flexible about freelance to full time. The more personable you are to your head hunter, the more ruthless they will be for you.


Trust me. I had good relationship and I met wonderful people on my career. Still I always landed a job when I connected straight with the agency. Also, I never really looked for work. But head hunter always contacted me and still mothing ever happened

Any 🐠 who have experienced the Indian passport office side of applying for global entry as an Indian citizen? Is it just fingerprinting/formalities, or an actual interview? Google gave mixed results.


Talked to a mutual contact today about a role I’m applying to in Asia. (We are both white Americans, he is an expat in Asia.) He warns me, unprompted, to think carefully about the decision to relocate because “white men can date the local women but white women can’t date the local men, so there’s a much smaller dating pool.” What do you think ladies? Well-intentioned advice or racist sexist BS?


In July I missed my promo to SM. A woman has been preferred even if she was underqualified (my MD's words), as at Accenture we have quotas for women. I'm interviewing with Deloitte, they told me I'll help building the practice. In the meantime I was assured by my MD that in December I'll get the promo. I don't really care changing company, even if I've built a network, I don't think I need to wait if I can. Your thoughts?
