Hey all, I’ve been out for a year due to dealing with a family member’s illness. Been applying since April but nothing yet. Most recently was a Sr. Associate. Any advice to gain traction?

I’m mainly looking at internal consulting roles (financial services) and went through the process for 2 roles at the same company, one of which got “cancelled” and the other put on hold. Got another interview at another company where the process has been painfully slow. Summer has been a bit slow but have been doing some volunteer work in the interim.

If I know I am making more than what the job I am interviewing for would most likely offer, what should I say if the recruiter asks what my target comp is? Realistically I’d take a pay cut to join this firm, but don’t want to outwardly say that upfront. Thoughts? Talking ~20-30k difference

Anyone available to review my resume/guide me through this job search? I’ve been applying places for the past 6 months and am not getting responses. Unemployment has run out and I’m starting to crumble under the pressure of bills. My experience the past 6yrs has been in smaller companies where my role was never just one thing but instead spread over multiple departments, so I’m struggling to narrow down how to convey the vast experience I do have.

Full round of interviews completed. No major pay hike but still happy to switch. However for 3 weeks it’s been radio silence.

Should I; a) write to HM directly and inquire? b) write to HM and ask to be considered for other roles he had that I was a potential with? c) sit tight?

Thinking of hiring a birthing Doula. Just talked her one last week. She would hold two 1.5 hr sessions pre-birth, one post-birth, and then be present through the whole labor and delivery.

For that I was quoted $1600. that doesn’t seem outrageous to me except that the price stays the same even if I end up needing a scheduled C-section. In that case it feels like I get way less for my money since I won’t need anyone to help me through labor.

Is this kind of pricing standard for Doulas?
