Hi Fishes I want to share very bad experience I had at Mastercard I was given offer by Mastercard in month of Dec The hike was less but looking at brand & other perks I accepted the offer & was looking forward to joining them.I got few offers & I went back to them for sole purpose of renegotiating CTC, to have a industry standard hike. They didn't reverted back for 2-3 days & just dropped a mail that they are revoking initial offer as well on grounds that they didn't like i gave other interview

Just had an interview with a new firm. Though it went well, I don’t think it will be a good fit / a move I want to make. What is the most professional way to withdraw from consideration? Reach out now and say “thanks, but no thanks,” or wait until an offer (if one comes) and then decline? I respect the group I interviewed with and am likely to work across from them in the future, so I don’t want to accidentally burn bridges / waste their time.
Has anyone been asked to record yourself answering questions as part of the interview process? I applied for a job at Illumina, and their HR sent an email saying the first interview will be a video where I will be asked questions by a software program (not by a real life person) and the video will be recorded then forwarded to the Hiring Manager and others. Seems weird, right? Has anyone else done this?? If so, any advice is greatly appreciated.
I have been an adjuster for almost 5 years, although I have loved almost all of my time adjusting and find it fun, in a sense, I am so ready to take my skills into underwriting. Does anyone have any tips for transitioning from adjusting to underwriting? I know this will sound cliche but I find myself to be very passionate about insurance and I do well when interviewed, but it is difficult to get a response for underwriting applications because they all “require” underwriting experience.
I accepted an offer earlier this month to start mid February at a fast growth Public software company. It was an insanely fast process and Ive already signed my acceptance letter and completed a background check. I also have a final interview this week with a series C unicorn software start up.

Hi - I've worked in MDM for the greater part of a decade as an SC/BA/SA, working a lot on Adobe InDesign PIM publishing integrations. I've decided to go for a gig at Adobe itself. I have a 2nd interview on Friday with an Adobe hiring manager for an SC role in pre-sales. Salary came up up on my 1st interview, 70/30 with base of $125k. No offer yet, but my current base is $135k (but no bonus incentives). I feel I should at least get my current base and/or a sign-on bonus. Is this a fair ask?

Hello. Is the start date for a new job required to be specified in the H1B transfer application?
I’m 24 and want a job that pays commission or hourly and is more entrepreneurial/deal oriented than Consulting. The more/harder/better I work, the more I get paid. I don’t know much about what’s out there, so I’m looking for some advice on what to start Googling. Sales comes to mind, what are some options? (E.g. medical device sales, real estate agent, Wealth management?) What else fits? No technical skills. Good at talking and making relationships. Good resume from Deloitte. Thanks!
I'm a senior 1 and I can sense that I am avoided in social situations. This is going to hold me back right?
Planning a one week trip to Yucatán. My first time in Mexico. Not a fan of big resorts. I’m an introvert, would love to find a quiet place to recharge. I looked at Palmul, which is between Cancun and Tulum. Does anyone know the area? I’d also love to drive around a bit. Maybe an overnight trip to Merida. Can I just get a rental car and explore? I’ll be traveling around alone. Female.
Moving from Deloitte to BCG soon. What can I expect as major challenges/differences when transitioning from big 4 to MBB?
Congratulations to all 3 of you for what you’ve accomplished so far. All your journeys are inspiring. My questions: how do you push for diversity in hiring practices in a meaningful way? Any recommendations on ensuring firms are committing to this throughout the life cycle of all employees (promotions, recognition etc).
Need some advice..Recently got married and the wife and I are planning on putting gifts we got toward an eventual down payment on a house. Aiming for that purchase to be in ~18 months. Anyone have advice as to how to best manage this money given the timeframe? I feel like that’s too long to simply just have it sit in savings. Thanks in advance!

Hi Creatives! What is the first WORD that comes to mind if I tell you about human-centered designs in the legal sector?
Working remote, where should I move to? Married + toddler. I like walkable areas (not too suburban). In LA now but it’s just too California- people are kind of annoying & it’s low energy for a big city, not to mention it’s expensive. Lived in Austin previously & loved it, was thinking of going back but prices now are out of control.
