Hi everyone,
I have been in the job market from last 4-5 weeks since I was laid off from
Microsoft as a recruiter. My experience is not great as I have applied for more than 75 jobs with the organisations I am interested in for the roles which are in mid level considering I have 5 years of experience. I am targeting for about CAD 90-110k annually and I am located in Toronto, Canada. Do you feel things will pace up this month and my expectations are reasonable?

Not sure if salaries in Canada, but in US, I would say 5 yrs is about $120k+
I think it’s also hard for recruiters right now because every company is going through budgeting for next year and making sure they met this year’s budget.
I just got laid off too. Sending good vibes your way!

All the best, I am sure time and persistency is the key. Thanks for commenting.

I think that's within range for tech recruiters. But agency would be a good start.

Contemplating jumping from insurance defense to claims examiner for Sedgwick. I currently like most people I work with but there is one unbearable supervisor.

Despite being perceived as a valuable attorney, I know the client development weakness will become a bigger problem over time. This position comes with a pay bump, vacation days and wlb promise. Is there a catch?

For context, I have 4 years of experience in a hospital blood bank and am a certified Medical Laboratory Technologist. I was thinking in the 65-70k range, but the recruiter made it seem like that was easily attainable so I’m worried I’m asking too low. Would 75-80k be do-able?

I’ve been a recruiter for almost 10 years. I don’t like it anymore. I’m not connected nor do I care about the things that I’m hiring. I’ve worked in multiple industries. I’ve done agency, contract, in-house recruiting. But i think I’m out of passion for it. I don’t know if I’m experiencing burn out or if the work culture is starting to get to me. But I’ve had it. How do you all motivate yourselves?
