I know working with a recruiter or getting a referral probably has a better success rate, but what do you think the success rate of cold applying to job recs on LinkedIn, Glassdoor, indeed etc.? You think you can still land a job this way?

Yes. Coming from a small business here, so adjust your expectations accordingly. I absolutely value cold applications from job sites. It shows you are doing some of the work yourself at researching my company and the position. If you come through a recruiter I don’t actually know if you have invested anything at this point.

1 offer in 250 cold applications was the average for collage students working with Career Services.

I got laid off from Deloitte but fortunately I got a offer today with 10%pay cut and the firm is going to apply the LCA and I would join first week of July if I get the receipt num. I am still in the middle interviewing firms . I wanted to take the current offer to secure my H1b but I am in need of advice on what I need to do if I get a good offer with a solid firm 2-3 weeks or a month from now. Can I join another firm weeks after join this firm? Something does not feel right.
