How do you all resist all the messages from recruiters on LinkedIn? I am a 2nd year staff (will make senior next summer) and it's hard to just ignore messages about jobs for 20-30k above my salary.

Just wait for the right offer...I also receive 2-3 emails a day. Only once an email “moved” me and i asked about it...many are just trying to get candidates therefore you just need to wait for a recruiting that comes with an offer that rock your boat

Why do you have to ignore them?

Well most people say you should stay until senior and then leave. So I'm trying to stick it out for another year but all these messages make it hard.

If it helps those emails are all lies. They put a position in the email but that’s just to lure you into talking to them. It’s all a bait and switch.

Lot of them are bait and switch...that’s why before you talk to them you need to obtain details. If during the call they don’t sound confident, their talking point differ from the offer..just walk away

Your raises and promotion in industry aren’t gong to be standard like in PA. I think you can expect 3-5%? I personally approach new opportunities from a “Is this what I want to do for the next 3-5 years or will this allow me to transition to what I want to do for the next 3-5 years?” Money is important but not everything

I’m at 130k now as a senior. It was worth the wait to jump

If they're saying 20-30k as a staff 2, it's a lie. 15k, they might be telling the truth.

All of the messages are cut and paste. It’s literally their job to make their offers sound enticing. Sure, might be real. But they won’t be telling you any of the downside.

Easy ignore. Money isn’t everything. Take more time to evaluate what drives you to work such as a work life balance and career growth.

Wait until you make seniors. You will get even more offers.

Staying at PwC, I currently make about $50k more than my peers that left for industry. So sometimes staying in PA pays. (Granted, I work in a specialty tax practice, so may not be the typical PA / industry experience)

Don't check LinkedIn. So much spam on there

I'd wait till senior 3 at least. I made a 51% pay bump. Not through a recruiter

That's fair. I've just seen it done more often at late s2 s3 level

Why would you ignore possible opportunities? Those dry up in a bear economy (which we are probably on the brink of). Big firms go through big waves of layoffs.

Because they’re annoying and possibly misleading? Plus, you are just as likely (if not more likely) to be fired from that new company you jumped to in a bad economy.
