Additionally I help my SO by sending her roles that fit what she’s looking for and sometimes even apply for her

I’d be shocked if he doesn’t have an offer before the end of the year - it’s bonkers out there right now! Good luck to him.

My younger brother made over double what I did in my first job out of school since he graduated this year. I’m happy for him and not really jealous since the scrappiness I learned has served me well, plus we grew up in a poor household. Have your husband dip a toe in the market! It’s crazy right now.

I gave a salary range to a couple recruiters for digital consulting positions and am not sure if it was relatively close to market value or not. Would you think this (admittedly wide) range is high, low, or reasonable? Any advice is appreciated!

- Consultant 1 positions requiring 3-5 years experience
- My range: $100k-$120k base
- I have 4 yrs experience, 2 of which in a BA/Product owner role (non b4 accounting firm)
