I don't think that you use the headhunter so much as they use you. The hiring company is paying them to find someone for the role, they are not incentivised to get you a role.

That said, I've worked well with headhunters in the past and if you treat them week, they can be powerful advocates for you with the hiring manager.

Hiring manager asked me 2 questions at the interview ... Is this a red flag? He did move on to tell me about the job after As well.

I moved on to the next round of interviews, but I’m worried that the place might be toxic and they just need a body.

2nd year assoc. here. Finding myself spending 3-5 hours researching/analyzing issues that should only take 1-3 hours. I find myself questioning - for every assignment - is this the issue I was asked to look into? Did I read that case right? Does this analysis make sense? And I end up reading the same cases over and over. Does anyone have advice for being more confident/efficient on tasks, especially research?
