create a custom pass for each company that way you can manage access after the interview is over

Thanks for the tip! That’s awesome idea

I send it with the application/resume. The protection is more to stop it from hitting Google and other search engines.

Ahhh okay! I never thought about it that way. Thanks!

I actually have a different perspective on this. Send a password with your resume if it’s an in-house recruiter or job. Do not send if it’s third party, wait until after you’ve had a conversation and feel good about the opportunity. I’ve seen third party recruiters try to gain favor with agencies by sending over info about all the people that have that agencies work in their portfolio.

I owe so much to this bowl! I'm finally putting in my 2 weeks notice and leaving for a whopping over 70% increase in TC!! Current TC: $87k (most likely would increase to $92k if I get bonus and promo next month) Offer TC: ~$150k+ ($110k base, $20k+ bonus, $20k rsu) YOE: 1 year Trust me, don't give up. I fell into severe depression ever since I started my consulting analyst career out of college, saw 5 therapists, gained 10 lbs, and broke relationships. I'd love to give back to you all here!
