I’m doing my final round interview and I just got my schedule for that day. Is it normal for an HR analyst to interview you? The role I am interviewing for is not HR related

I had a super day once where one of the sessions was with HR staff. It was less of an interview and more time for me to ask any HR-related questions out in the open. I wouldn’t worry about it, OP

helpful

Makes sense, thank you!!

I already had a screening with the recruiter already as well, so I’m curious to see if that’s normal to have one of the interviewers be from HR

Yes

Do you know why that’s normal for a final round? Do they just ask you general questions and see if you’re a good fit?

You sure he's interviewing you?

They are only one of the interviewers, I’ve just never had an HR person interview in the final round so I was just curious to see if it’s normal and what to expect

Job? Company?

Yeah I was thinking it might work differently in that industry, they’re my first interview for that day so maybe it’s just a final screening from HR

Have a little less than 1YOE at my firm (started in Sept) - is it a bad idea to apply now or should I wait to the 1YOE mark? Would it be a bad idea to cold apply? Don't want to miss out entirely on the hiring spree but also worried about being dinged due to relatively little experience. I don't have a lot of connections at the firms but can probably pull together a referral in the next few months with some networking.

Hey 🐠, I’m trying to understand if I need to be looking for lateral exit opportunities from a compensation perspective. I’m a Manager in the M&A IT practice, 12 YOE (7 in Tech and 5 in Consulting). I am happy with the work I do and the people I work with are tolerable. New base salary is $178K starting this month. Asking because I’ve heard that people should keep jumping from one company to another in Consulting to have a competitive comp. Basically guys, is my compensation competitive?

A CRO offerred me an internal consulting/biz dev role. They offered 145k TC (20% bump) and slightly better benefits. They also offered accelerated path (6mo to 1yr) to MC. While promotion to MC at my current company is at least 1 year away. The job is interesting to me and fits my careery goal. But my big concern is that I've only been with my current company for a year (this is my first job, post PhD). Would this affect my resume in the future in terms of being viewed as "job hopping"?

My wife and I would like to retire at age 50 (or earlier). We’re in our early 30s. We’ve been maxing out 401ks and IRAs for years and started contributing 20k a year into a taxable account to start filling the gap since we can’t access 401k until 55. At what point should we be reducing 401k/IRAs and redirecting to the taxable account? Otherwise our income balloons late in life. Curious how others are managing this.
