I just installed this app, so i dunno if this is appropriate forum (channel? Bowl?) for this inquiry, but is anyone thinking about job seeking overseas? Is there any better way than to constantly check for general job search portals, or portals popular in that country? Is there any US-licensed-attorney-oriented portals? Should i talk to a recruiter? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Nailed all the interviews including great feedback from hiring VP on the final round who said I should expect to hear on next steps shortly. Later found out another candidate is being offered the role. Should I connect with the VP and let them know I was looking forward to working with them and maybe keep me in mind for future roles.

Over 20 plus years with this company my base pay has gone up every couple of years. The biggest growth in my salary has come as a "Bonus pd 1x/yr" which now is over 50% of my cash compensation. Base plus bonus plus benefits is on the Lower half of my industry Salary Value from talking to industry colleagues.

I may have an opportunity for a new position with another company starting around the first of the new year. My concern is that the "bonus" is not paid until March. What to do?
