Life is too short and agencies are not your family. Move roles if you want to.

Usually a year-ish. You don’t want a resume full of one year stops but a few, especially early career, are fine. and it’ll take you 2 months to find a role so you’re good to start looking.

I’ve hopped a lot, and agree early in your career it’s ok if you have something less than a year on your resume. Would just be careful not to fall into the pattern of jumping just because there are so many options out there, and only bc the new option really is better

No harm in interviewing, you can always say no if it moves beyond that. Wouldn’t hurt to get insight in the other role and build connections, too. Obviously don’t lead them on if it’s not the right time or a good fit for you. I was in this position before and 8 months later the same recruiter emailed me to see if i was still interested in a role..I was, and I’m at that company now.

Can someone explain to me what the levels are at companies like Google and Amazon etc.? I see people commenting about being offered L4 or L3 roles but I don’t know what that means as the companies I’ve worked for were smaller and didn’t have them.

Having access to clean and abundant water to shower everyday is a privilege. Growing up in LA, during the drought period, forced many of us (especially those from a low socioeconomic background) to cut down on our showers.

Throwing a different perspective out there for all my east coast friends who grew up with access to unlimited, cheap (free) water

Let’s say you had 2interviews and both of them went really well. You got an offer from Agency A right after you had an interview with Agency B which also went well.
As you prefer AgencyB and want to see the result before you sign for the Agency A
what would you do?
Tell agencyB recruiter that you got an offer but want to hold it since u want to go B? or ask agency A to wait?
