I applied for and was screened by HR for a Director position. It wasn't a good fit but I was passed over to another VP. I had a phone interview with that VP which went very well. He expressed interest in creating a Director level role for me based on my experience and interests. I received feedback via a 3rd-party recruiter that the company is in the process of creating a req. and will bring me on-site for another interview. Problem: They changed the level to Principal Eng. What should I do?

Titles are a farce. Just make sure that this new role is what you want to do, that you’re getting paid the numbers you like and that you have the authority to be able to carry out your work. Make sure to discuss growth opportunities and agree on those.

Thanks. That all makes sense. I'm also concerned about discrepancies in the pay package b/t the titles. Do you [or anyone else] have thoughts on that?

Agree with Engineer1. The most important things almost all boil down to this: are you having a mandate to do your work more or less freely, deliver while at the same time being somewhat passionate about what you want ? Are you being compensated well enough for the value you add ? I would also add a third one: make sure you are a good fit for the team and it’s management, as people tend to leave mediocre bosses rather than roles. Good luck !

Know anyone that sounds like that, send them my way! (Agency is full-time flex/hybrid, but a desire to be NOLA-based is strongly preferred; however remote may be negotiable.)

I’ve had radio silence from a small investment bank for about a week now. I’ve completed several rounds of interviews, but last Thursday the firm reposted the job I’ve been interviewing for. On Friday the headhunter said that they’re not sourcing new candidates and it’s probably just LinkedIn automatically refreshing the listing. She said they had a busy week last week but will make a final decision this week - is the delay and radio silence a bad sign or is this typical for experienced hiring?
