Is it normal for a recruiter to call you, insult your book, then say they will pass your book along and ask for your salary range? 🎢

This is normal. Also when you follow up with them they won’t respond then 5 years later you will email them and they’ll say things are slow

Maybe it’s like a pickup artist move. They “neg” you with an insult, get you craving their approval, lowball you salarywise then reel you in.

Define “insult your book”. I offer feedback on books all the time. I hope I’m not insulting creatives by trying to give their book a better chance of appealing to the person/agencies they are hoping to target

i’ve dealt with a ton on recruiters. most of them are young and don’t know much. take what that recruiter said to you and try to understand why he/she said that. if they’re young, don’t put too much weight behind their opinion.

Had a job interview once where I argued with the CD the whole time. We couldn’t agree on anything. Then they offered me the job

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all doing well!

This is my first post as well as my first switch after working 6y in the same organisation.

Recently I have cleared two interviews one from
1)
Infosys with 11.8 LPA (10.2 fix, 1.6 variable) - offer letter received
2) Cognizant with 15 LPA (14.3 fix, 0.7 variable) - documents submitted, yet to receive offer letter.

YOE: 6y
LWD: June 6

Considering the opportunities I have which one would be the better choice in work culture wise.

TIA
