Is it a bad sign if a recruiter looked at your profile on LinkedIn but you haven’t heard back yet? For context, applied to Amazon last Thursday, noticed the recruiter checked my profile this Tuesday. Could it be the short holiday week meant they weren’t working? Or is it a sign they won’t be reaching out?

I wouldn’t jump to conclusions given that it’s a holiday week. Even if Amazon’s culture is worse than Big 4, most people probably took Wednesday off.

Dude....don't take it too serious...

What positions are you all applying for? I have my second interview this week

Is the other role very different? I’d say if you’re having luck with it, take it as far as it will go! It will be interesting to see what they do with their Tax Tech practice, but maybe if you get hired into the other position, can transfer down the line? Either way, congratulations on getting interviews!!

I got a verbal offer from a company almost 3 months ago now. But due to it being close to the holidays, and having to schedule meetings with hiring managers (to join a team) around their PTO and the holidays, the timeline’s been looking kinda wonky. I got to talk to a manager a bit before Christmas time. I’ve emailed the recruiter who’s supposed to be letting me know of next steps a few times now since the new year, but it feels like she’s ghosting me. What should I do? I’m getting super anxious

In need of advice- my friends have excluded me a few times claiming "they know I have work". I've told them outside of jan-march I have unlimited PTO.

We've been friends since 8th grade but this has been a reoccurring theme for the past few years.
