Schedule a meeting and tell the partner you work for. If you are going to a competitor, assume that your employment will terminate that day, with 2 weeks plus PTO Payout. It would be wise to have your affairs in order prior this meeting.

You don’t have to tell them where you’re going, it’s not essential. It’s more advantageous to keep it high level and simply say “hey partner, wanted to discuss my position here at the firm, I’ve been considering other opportunities that I think more closely align with my goals and aspirations, while thankful for the opportunity here I’d like to make sure that there’s as warm a handoff as possible to ensure continued success on any ongoing engagements”. And if partner says it’s well received, no hard feelings, wish you the best of luck, and it’s more nonchalant “oh where are you going”? You reply “oh well I’m still young and learning in my professional career, I think I’d like to keep those cards a bit closer to my chest for now, but if you’d like to connect after I’ve started I’d be more than happy to” etc.

Hi all,

I am working in USI and have recently applied for Deloitte UK role. I got a set of questions from UK recruiter which also includes “Are you in any other recruitment processes? If so, what stages are they at?”


Currently I am going through 2 other company’s rounds. My concern is if the UK hiring manager shared this info with current manager without offering a role, it will impact year end in USI.

What should I do ?

Hello ladies ! I am thinking of moving from my marketing role and transitioning to an onboarding specialist role. This role would give me the opportunity to become a customer success manager.

I truly enjoy working with customers and trying to solve issues and show them how to properly market the product etc.

I am now having second thoughts because I feel like I could be wasting my education/ experience in marketing.

I enjoy seeing people succeed and coaching them to get there. Thoughts?

I am debating getting back into phlebotomy/lab assistant/sample processor. The last company I worked for was Lapcorp (Seattle,WA) in 2018 & made 17.35 an hour. I have 9 years in both inpatient & outpatient. In that time I gained lots of experience in blood draws (from new borns to drug users), sample processing, ordering, legal blood draws/breath tests, and more. I felt I was being underpaid then & wonder what the average wage is now? Or suggestions on what to ask for?

I think my previous company was paying me way above market value (80k entry level/NYC). I had no direct experience but 4 yrs of transferable experience. Now I’m back in the job market and I have yet to find a company willing or able to match 80k + for a RC. Recently got an offer for 65k, which is around the range I’ve been seeing. Should I just accept that I won’t get 80k or negotiate for more?

Considering leaving public accounting after 8.5 years. Have been a manager for 3.5 years (haven’t updated fishbowl) and feel like it’s now or never. I am finding that its difficult to find a job with much of a pay increase since I lack any experience working in house. Contemplating if it is worth it in the long run moving to controller/ accounting manager of a company for even salary or pay cut in order to get that experience. Appreciate any insight
