I applied to two firms at the same time. I completed the application process for one, accepted the job and I am now one month in. The 2nd firm wants to interview me. I would like to take the interview to see if I could get a better offer. Do I need to disclose that I am now at a new firm?

Unless this is a job you would prefer to take, I would email the second firm saying that it’s been X months since you applied, that you have taken another position in the meantime, and you are no longer interested. There is no need to waste your time or their time if you are not going to take the job. Also, a great reminder to their HR team to be more efficient with their recruiting process for other applicants. But if you really want to see if they would give you a better offer, put your minimum salary / total compensation in your email response and see if they’ll bite at it. Again, no need to waste your and their time interviewing if it isn’t going to be good enough.

Nope but I wouldn’t lie either

I’m sure I won’t be asked. The assumption would be that I’m still at the most recent employment at the time of my application. Was wondering if to offer the information of my new role

Nope

Right. If you're honest about your primary previous employers termination date, that's good enough. No need to disclose any recent new role if you don't want to.

How do I deal with this: junior colleague on one of my teams right now for whom English is not her first language. Embarrassingly bad spelling and grammatical mistakes on decks. Can’t lead interviews with clients bc often they don’t understand her. PD says its all part of coaching and development. But I need to review content, NOT be her ESL tutor, which it feels like I am at the moment. PS. Yadda yadda, I get it: “languageism” is an extension of whiteness and I need to check my privilege.

In July I missed my promo to SM. A woman has been preferred even if she was underqualified (my MD's words), as at Accenture we have quotas for women. I'm interviewing with Deloitte, they told me I'll help building the practice. In the meantime I was assured by my MD that in December I'll get the promo. I don't really care changing company, even if I've built a network, I don't think I need to wait if I can. Your thoughts?

Made a mistake of moving to US 10 years ago thinking this was the best country! Finally after looking for a good job opportunities for 3 years and several rounds of interviews, moving to Switzerland for good. Living in this country has been hell and for everyone who calls it the best country. God bless you. Good luck everyone living in US. Hope to see y’all never. Also goodbye Daddy D. Thanks for the memories!
