Is it considered inappropriate to work with multiple Headhunters when job hunting, or is it expected? I don’t want to be disloyal to the agency that’s helped me in the past, but I need work ASAP.

Work with anyone and everyone. They know you’re doing it. It’s not your fault if they don’t have the contracts to place. Understand they’re also working with several people just like you to fill the exact same roles for which you’re applying

i had one tell me “even though they were close to our COO, they would keep my search quiet”

meanwhile, the COO had left a month ago. I guess he wasn’t that close to the COO.

Headhunters don’t work for you - they work for the employer. Just don’t let two send you to the same place

most head hunters will ask about the status of your search. they want to get paid, so if they think you’re about to accept another offer, they might nudge a hiring manager along.

It's not inappropriate but be aware that if you're repped by an outside recruiter/submitted to a company through them first, you can't separately apply as the employers still have to pay the headhunter/recruiter

I am an associate at a 4 attorney firm. My current caseload is busy. I have an offer for a new job and made a counter offer. I’m expecting a response possibly today, definitely in the next few days. The new firm is pushing me to get there ASAP. One of the partners at my current is finally able to go on her honeymoon starting next week. I genuinely like her as a person and professional, and would like to wait until she returns, then give 2 weeks notice. Am I being ridiculous?

My company went toxic in the last couple months. Chose me and started interviewing. Had a very successful interview with Amazon but recruiter is working hard trying to place me and said there’s no knowing how long to find a team. Meanwhile I just received a Director offer for a company with a 29% pay bump July 1. If Amazon or any other FAANG/large co gets back to me, is there an acceptable way to not burn bridges with new job and accept or delay start date with FAANG? Or fuck it just hop?
