How long do we feel this hot job market will to last? Debating whether to leave now or later

Leave now, why wait? Job searching always takes longer than you think. And why live longer without the raise that would come with a new gig? Time is money.


Leave now. The job market is hot and top companies are recruiting - both agency and brand side. To get into those the process can range from 3 - 8 weeks. No need to wait for all those jobs to get snapped up. For inspiration I started looking in may and just got an offer that was 20% greater than what I was making before and another that offered me a package over double what I was making before. Now go forth!


I keep hearing about this hot market but it’s been largely crickets for me. Maybe I need to start shouting my interest to be whisked away

Is it just me or does your manager also sometimes tends to ignore you post a not so successful client meeting? I am new to this corporate scenario, please tell me how do I reach out to my manager without sounding needy? Is it okay for my manager to ignore me post a client call?


Hi everyone. I interviewed for a sales role at Amazon. I was told the role was an L6 and I can stay based in Chicago. Well, the recruiter emailed me today saying the hiring team felt I was better suited for an L5 role (estimated total comp is $140K-$150K) and I would have to move to Seattle. They'll send me an offer if that works. Any advice or opinions on how to negotiate? For context, I gave a desired salary range of $280K-$310K since this was an L6 role, and my current TC at P&G is $200K.

I got laid off during the beginning of the pandemic. Since then I’ve been struggling with drug use and finances. Deloitte hired me out grad school. I’ve been unable to find a job in IT Controls. Any help? I did IT Controls Audit Readiness for a couple years. The market is so niche and being black makes it twice as hard to find work. I really need some help landing a new role folks. I’m 22 days clean!


I'm looking to get into an ER mid leadership role with an international company (I want to investigate, travel and I speak Portuguese fluently), but I'm having a hard time breaking in. I'm overqualified. I'm an attorney who practiced employment law before my now 7 years of inhouse HR. My skills are a great asset for an ER role, but I'd be reporting to someone with less education, which I don't mind. But recruiters think they do. Any advice from my senior HR pros?

Hello Bainees 🐠 I was invited to attend a Bain London “Curious about Consulting” event 2 weeks ago, after a CV submission, and given particular timeline to apply and interview dates. And I have strong reason to apply to London (used to work and live in London, currently based in Paris) On the other hand, a good friend who is a Manager at Bain’s Helsinki office is willing to refer me to Bain’s Stockholm office. But I have a relative weaker reason there. What do you suggest? Bain & Company
