Hi fishies!

Can I get some feedback on my resume please? 🙏🏼
I’ve been trying to tailor to the positions I’m applying for as much as possible, but my applications keep getting rejected before I’m even contacted for the first round of interviews.

I’m looking for compliance/investigation type roles.
Thanks in advance!!

I've been having the same experience, also doing as you are with stats and tailoring to the job description. I get several recruiters contacting me every day, but all of my direct applications are getting rejected. I'm starting to feel like the only way to get anywhere is through networking and contacting recruiters.

You can make it more appealing by using canvas.

Unfortunately, that's the way to get ATS readers to garble the text and bin it. It would be good for the interview process, however.

PSA: didn’t think anyone needed to hear this, but apparently many do. When you’re interviewing for a job you actually want, and the interviewer asks if you have any questions for them at the end, have questions ready, and legitimate ones. It’s a really bad look when candidates say “no I don’t have any questions,” or they ask something incredibly stupid like “what cool swag do you get?”

Was let go from a position this week and have been gearing up the search. I was there for just under 90 days. Plan is to discuss that there was very little (read: absolutely zero) training, a bad culture fit (toxic culture), and hidden managerial issues (micromanager). Aside from such a short tenure just smelling funny, any red flags I might be missing? I can elaborate a bit more, but I feel a bit relieved to be moving on - DMs and recruiters welcome lol.

Hi! I had a (what I think is) a final round interview yesterday and want to send a thank you email.

Hi! I have a quick question and could use some advice:

I have to decide on the first offer by Thursday but I haven’t heard back from the second yet. Thoughts on next move?

I’m in a difficult situation. A man who was fired for harassing women at my last agency is currently employed at an agency I’m interviewing at. This job would be a promotion for me and it’s a good company. But I’m really hesitant to work where this man is. The thought of being at parties or in meetings with him is unbearable. I keep asking myself if a promotion is worth it? Or should I go with self preservation and say no thanks?

My ladies, have you got some thoughts for me?

I'm a semi new grad and I actually like agency life but people are saying I'd be dumb to not go brand side. Is this a loss if I don't take it or will there be more opportunities like this when I become more experienced in the field?
