Help! I recently interviewed for a consulting role and after the interview, the headhunting agency reached out to me to ask about my comp history on behalf of the firm. Does anyone know what it is used for? I have already been provided the total comp info

They’re just trying to get the lowest number they can for your comp. Just ask what the comp range or budget is for the role and try not to give them a number or range first. I think there’s a legal stipulation somewhere that they can’t technically ask you, not too sure on details

It looks like they are trying to lowball you. In NY it is illegal to ask.

And tbh I don’t know if it’s the agency or the firm who’s actually requesting this info. And why do they need to know after telling me how much I’m paid

Hey y'all! I just accepted an offer with Microsoft in the FRP. Does anyone have any recommendations for progressing within the company and making the most of the opportunity?

I'm honestly very open to multiple pathways and at this moment aiming for promotion and exposure asap!

New to Project Management. Today my company asked me to PM a new customer Project. The Project is assigned a team with a technical lead. My career so far has been in development, but I have already been a lead on projects where managers had little presence and I had to do a lot of customer interactions. However, I have never been present in a project kick-off and high level decision making processes. What do I need to find out on early stages of the discussion, and what to ask in onboarding?
