Hi fishes, How do people get multiple job offers and continue job search in notice period? If we accept an offer. Can we still cancel and join some other firm?

You can apply to as many positions as you'd like. The more you do, the more offers you might receive, and the better your options will be.

It's not a great habit to turn down an offer after already accepting it, but I know someone who did.

I know people who do this, I think it's risky because you could burn some bridges doing it but I guess it depends.

Yeah, definitely burns bridges but could pay off depending on the situation.

Yeah I wouldn't risk it tbh. You never know who's on the other side of the offer.

I am guilty of this practice and yes it isn't easy to turn down offers that you had accepted at the first place. But hey, you are just a number to them. End of the day it's all about money and the kind of the role. It's not wrong to keep searching until the end of your NP. No, recruiters don't hold any grudge against you. I now work in an org whose offer I had turned down a couple of years ago just a day before the actual joining date and guess what it was the same recruiter I worked with back then too.

Not sure how consulting firms expect to retain talent out of undergrad if they barely raise pay. Left consulting after 1 year, end of 2nd year and I’m at 180k comp now with friends at D and PWC barely hitting 85. I know seniors at D not even making 100k


As an interviewer, I find it very awkward when an interviewee has on a button-up with a tie and jacket. Heck, even just a button-up. Why do you wear that at home? Put your polo on, relax a little, and don't sit their like a stiff in your apartment bedroom with a fake background.
