Try a different strategy. Research who the recruiters are and give them a call.

Never give up, except when applying to LinkedIn via LinkedIn. It's like man vs machine in a chess match.

Telling me that my background doesn’t fit what they’re looking for when I have experience in everything that’s listed in their job description. Should I try to get more specific feedback from an actual recruiter, give up on applying, or continue trying?

How weird would it be if I reached out to the head of the team since they’re lean? Expressing my interest and wanting to learn more about the role and team

Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?

As I prepared to file my notice, the partner of the firm called me and asked me to stay. They’re willing to promote me mid year in December and increase salary next year in August. The current offer I have gives 60% pay increase and Partner still can’t match that offer after promotion. Firm leadership says here I have potential to be a partner in 8 years and talk about all the leadership support I have rn which is fair. Is this one of their tactics to make me stay or should I just leave…
