I interviewed for an apm contract position at a good company but wasn’t selected for that role, however, the recruitment agency said they’re trying to find another role just on a different product team. Am I being peddled or being done a legit favor? I have recruiter PTSD.

Any advice of anything I can do?

I’ve had a couple recruiters say that to me in the past. 1 followed through and found a few other roles quickly to interview me for, while I never heard from the others again.

Not sure if there’s much you can do, it seems completely random at times but largely depends on the workload of the specific recruiter you’ve worked with.

Good to know. She’s the account manager for this specific company. Should I ask about other opportunities or just wait for now?

I will likely be promoted to a Level 1 underwriter within the next 6 months to a year at the latest. Thanks!

My org is rebranding, and in short, the new visuals suck. My sr designer told me my entire team wants to quit. Personally, so do I. Leadership made all the decisions without involving me, and has basically told me my job is not to have an opinion but to execute on the new direction. This is hilarious to me given that last year we were pushed to become more strategy-driven.

I know we all probably just need to leave. But in the mean time im losing my sanity trying to do my job. Any advice?

I've seen that becoming a project manager is a common exit but is that kind of a dead end, Career path wise? I'm going to interview at a bank for a PM position and wondering, assuming I land the offer, where I can go from there if it turns out I don't enjoy being at the bank and/or job itself. Can I pivot to product management, something in operations, or just boomerang back to consulting? Any insight would be appreciated. TIA!
