How much do you pay attention to the requirements in a job description? If it says you need 10 years experience in ‘X’ and you have 6 years, does it deter you from applying? If you are on the hiring side, how strict are you normally regarding these requirements?

Well. I wouldn’t hire someone with 6 yoe as director level.

From an applicant perspective I am not HR, my experience if they ask for 5 years and you have 3 then you are good if they ask for 5 and you have 5 then you are probably more senior and advanced for that role. That’s just my take every job I have had they have asked for more experience. I would say if they ask for 10 and you 6 you are probably in the sweet spot to apply.

I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.). I work with reps at these places as part of my job, but technically their loyalty is to my clients (the ones spending $ on their platform), not to me, working at the client’s creative agency. So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
