My SO is always adjusting our lives to accommodate his family - from our holiday plans, to where we may settle down, etc. however whenever he needs help he reaches out to my family. It really really bothers me but whenever I say it he says I’m so transactional in mindset about my family helping. Not the case imo but yes it bothers me that he has my sister help him with things but plans life to convenience his brother

I am in the midst of interviewing at 3 different agencies right now. I had my second interview with one agency on Friday and my first round for the other 2 this Wednesday. I would like to interview for the other 2, but am wondering how to maneuver the 1st place, while still being respectful. To be clear, I just want a chance to see what the other 2 say without being pressured to sign an offer letter (should the occasion arise) if they need it before Wednesday. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

How soon is too soon to leave? I started my first real gig in advertising as a junior at a small agency about six months ago. However, after settling in, I’m realizing the account they have me primarily working is not interested in making good work, and prob not anytime in the near future. I’m being interviewed for a mid-level position at a bigger, better agency, but don’t want to cut bait unless it’s the right move. What should I do??
My YOE is 5.6years Working at Accenture with Client Faced as Project Manager Recently been certified as PMP Been selected for Deloitte as Consultant with a switch from 4.57LPA to 10.5LPA with Joining Bonus as 1LPA Is this a good deal?

Pretty new to Talent Acquisition since I used to work HR for the gov. I really like the pace of recruiting/ sourcing, but I think I am a little underpaid considering I have no benefits on contract/ RPO outsource. But as I was looking at other JDs in postings to get a better idea. I noticed a lot of companies specifically ask for in-house or agency experience... Some even say ( no RPO ) Can someone explain to me why? Apple Google Amazon
