You beat me to this post. I need a good gut check and this would really help.

Any recruiters want to pretend they're not insanely swamped for 20 minutes and help two seniors out?


Yeah I also like the idea of emailing versus link to keep anonymity:)


Ha. Let me set up a fake Google account and I'll do it. Gimme a day and if I don't post the email address, remind me so I don't 👻 you. 🤣


Room for one more??


Thank you 🙏


I'm not sure you ever posted your anonymous email address!


Where did you post the email? :)


Up there^



Following up talent recruiter 1! Thanks again 🙌

What are good questions to ask the interviewer that don't come off as generic in order to get a better understanding or insights about the company structure and culture. For example, I hate tell me about the company's culture or do you feel the company values a good work - life balance.

When recruiters “aren’t allowed to name the agency” for whatever reason, don’t you guys realize that at some point down the line we’re going to find out? And if it’s a shit place we would never...


Started a new job in recruitment half a year ago and I’m absolutely dreading my time thus far. My team is incredibly detached from each other and I get nitpicked for the stupidest of reasons (like why am I picking not to go to the office, even though we have a temporary full WFH policy), not to mention that my male coworkers get more praise for doing less than me. It’s incredibly demotivating and I went from wanting to do more to just doing the bare minimum. Is quitting the only option here?
