ACN 🐠, a recruiter reached out about a role in the CMT Customer Insights and Growth team out West. What type of projects do they do?

Does anyone think the 'you are in the top x% of x# of applicants' thing on LinkedIn means anything to recruiters / hiring managers, or nah?

My partner and I (same education, same experience) received an offer for a fairly similar role at the same big tech company.

However, there is a large difference in level and TC in both our offers. How do you deal with this?
