Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
What’s a good reason for wanting to leave your firm within couple months to say for an interview?
Anyone know how the Master's in Financial Analytics is at Santa Clara University? I was thinking of applying there for a chance to break into senior finance roles in Silicon Valley/Bay Area.
For the KPMG folks- I was invited for an interview, and I'm curious what would be a good range for asking salary - just to make sure I'm not way on the high end. I have a PhD and a little over 1 yoe in consulting working for a boutique firm (not small, but not huge).
[Serious] Lateraling as a first year from my little hell hole to hopefully greener pastures. I have interviews lined up. Are there any questions that you wish you had asked? Any questions that are particularly good to ask my interviewers? First few rounds are with the partners.
Anyone had an interview with PwC FDD recently? How long did you wait after the HR call for an interview?

What does it mean when someone says that "we are a high leverage organization"? That phrase came up in an interview. I don't remember the full context, but it definitely wasn't in the context of debt - something about the organization's activities, how it makes an impact, hierarchal structure, or something else. It was an interview with a VC firm.
What are the odds: I randomly clicked at a profile shown here on the networking bar. Upon checking their LinkedIn, it turns out they used to work at the boutique company I’m currently interviewing for (same role!) and left just a month back for a role in industry. Is it OK to reach out to them on here or on LinkedIn and connect with them? Please advise 🙏

Help needed! Asking for a Brazilian friend who just recently had his O-1 visa approved (first one after an OPT). he got started on a couple jobs, but he’s always getting stuck on the “your I-94 is expired” issue. Some lawyers told him to leave the country, but he can’t seem to schedule an interview in any US consulates, as most are still closed/not taking non emergency cases due to covid. Has anyone been through this situation or have any tips on how to work around it? Thank you!
Should I remove undergrad internships from my resume now that I have 3.5 years of full time experience? I worked 20 hours per week during the semester and 40 hours during the winter/summer breaks for two of my four internships.

Tips for interviewing at Amazon? Recruiter contacted me for a position I didn't apply for and set up an interview without any context. They probably got my resume for other positions I applied for I presume. They provided me with a few links for how to interview at Amazon and gave me the linked in of who I would be doing my phone interview with. Any help tips would be appreciated. TIA
What reason could I give in my exit interview for leaving the firm? I don't want to burn bridges and want to keep the window open to return. But miserable in this current role.
Lots of articles say it’s meaningless/less impactful to begin a convo with the typical “hey, how are you?”...What’s your take here? Let’s say you have an interview and the recruiter will call you at 9am. How do you answer the phone?

Told an intern at my firm in a different group that reached out to try and join my team that he should be prepared to work 60-70 hours. He smugly laughed and said everyone he knows at our firm works that many hours (we are a B4 and it’s certainly not the case). Then he proceeded to tell me he leads a 10 person workstream. Then he asked me to refer him to managers to get him transitioned into our group. Posting so others can also get a kick out of this.
Hey guys, since this is the first time this happens to me I need some advice. I'll most likely get laid off soon as the agency currently lost a few clients and already let go plenty of people (CONT)

￼ I got an offer today from a firm that’s fairly new and has about 13 attorneys. Only two of the attorneys are women, and they’re both quite a bit older. I don’t think the firm has a maternity leave policy. How do I find out? I’m a 26-year-old and want to start a family soon? But I don’t want them to know that quite yet.… Advice?
When you call UA to apply an RPU to a booking and what the rep actually does is put you on standby on a flight 10 hours earlier. WTF?!
