I was at a job for 8 months before I was furloughed due to covid. I’ve been at my current job 6 months since then. A recruiter from a start up I interviewed with in B school reached out asking me to apply for a position. I’m very interested in the company (exit out of consulting),the role, and the comp structure. Is the bouncing around bad? Should I consider the job or wait until I hit a year before leaving?

No it’s not. You can explain away with corona easily. No one will bother.

Agree with this

Do it! Always do what’s best for you because if push came to shove your current company would drop you in a second. Also, life’s too short to worry about appearances. People job hop these days. And you hopping around early in your career won’t matter in the long run

Good POV. definitely thinking about how a recruiter would see a ‘hopper’

The more you bounce the better it is; stop thinking like your parents.

Yep!!!! I bounced three times since I’ve been out of college and hit 125k in salary for 2 YOE.

As long as you can explain it, nothing to worry about.

Hi ladies! We started this bowl because a few of us recently took new positions in the midst of COVID and are struggling with WFH. Here’s my story, please share yours! Just moved to a new country and joined a big local firm as a junior. I am a chronic procrastinator and I think it’s because I have low self-confidence, esp. with my writing style. Accountability is key to my productivity, and unless I’m micromanaged, I struggle to self-discipline. Will be sharing resources and tips in next post!

No one else I know is in my shoes in my group/office at EY. How have your families in similar situations dealt with this? I feel like I’ll be very unreliable as we head into the busy season.

26M making $155k base and about $185k TC at a large payments firm (Visa, MC, AmEx). I’m also 1 year away from promo which will probably get me to $210-220k TC. Do you think I still need an MBA? A lot of senior leaders in my team have 1 so I’m really not sure at this point. The opportunity costs are high, but I’m well aware of the long term benefits. I’ve also already taken the GMAT and gotten a 740. I’m an Asian male and find the hurdles that we go through for admissions a turn off as well.
