I had cleared few interviews but my ask was 18 Lpa only that moment but still companies were saying our max budget is only 16. So I wasn't accepting the offers.

Applied for EYP TSE Operation Analytics Senior and had a initial screening call with EYP recruiter two weeks ago but she has been ignoring my follow up email and hasn't been responding since. Is it normal or I'm no longer in their consideration already?

Also wondering if anyone from that practice is willing to connect? I'm currently in DDV and very good at Alteryx and Tableau, so want to make the switch.

EY Consulting London Folks - I got shortlisted for SM interview in the Business Consulting GBS space. The first interview had to be rescheduled due to the interviewer's unavailability (and this was 10 days back). I haven't heard back from the scheduler/recruiter since then. The application status on the Careers page says "You are in the hiring team phase of our interview process".

Should I keep my hopes of being interviewed alive? I have restrained from mailing them till now.

I work as a BDR/SDR for a marketing SaaS company and I have about 5 years of sales experience under my belt. My company is fairly new and has been changing a lot. The employee turnover is insane right now and it’s making me worried that I might get laid off eventually.
I’m trying to find a way to get out of sales and into something like product management, sales enablement, or sales/revenue ops. Is there a way in to these roles with my prior experience? If so, how would to talk to it?


Question - for anyone who received paid leave and short term disability pay from NY state, is there a tax document I should be receiving to claim that income?
