I personally do a mix of networking at target companies, curating my resume / linkedin, and blasting out applications. I don’t think a super efficient method exists. Bookmark hiring portals of target companies, look for openings once every 7 days with whatever search parameters you have. If you networking yields referrals great, if not apply cold

I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
