Of course. Why wouldn't it be?

Yes! They typically appreciate it. This is a good way to make your presence known.

I hope so. I always do. I really don't see how it could be a problem though.

Just got a call with a company I interviewed at and they said “they really liked you, they would just like to see more experience. We will check back in 6 months.” That’s some BS, uh I would get the experience you want if I worked for you. Sorry just venting.

I have a case interview with tier 2 strategy firm tomorrow. Today I did some mock cases with someone who have UG&PhD from Ivy League. She gave rough feedback on my performance. When it was my turn to be the interviewer: she did the math wrong and when I was trying to re-direct her, she said “I’m sorry but this is going to be a waste of your time. Can u just send me the case” basically kicked me out our meeting 😢

Hey team! So I was laid off from my SDR position about a week ago. A couple months back, I had an offer for a BDR position that I ended up turning down but I really liked and connected with the manager. Is it worth it to reach out? I applied to other positions in the same company. What about reaching out to previous co workers at a different company? Not sure how to navigate this… please help. Also I’m sorry if this is the wrong bowl to post in.

I applied for and was screened by HR for a Director position. It wasn't a good fit but I was passed over to another VP. I had a phone interview with that VP which went very well. He expressed interest in creating a Director level role for me based on my experience and interests. I received feedback via a 3rd-party recruiter that the company is in the process of creating a req. and will bring me on-site for another interview. Problem: They changed the level to Principal Eng. What should I do?

Has anyone been approached by a ‘Talent acquisition specialist’ at a company for a ‘discovery call?’ Is this similar to an initial recruiter screening?

Trying to apply for another position at the same company but my boss told me explicitly that if they find out people on our team are looking for other jobs, they will stop giving that person raises, promotions, bonuses, & access to opportunities. I have spoken with the hiring manager for the new position and he just asked me if I have notified my current manager. Not sure how to navigate this tricky situation. Was hoping to interview before having to tell my manager that I am applying. Ideas?

I’ve been extremely busy. Because of this, I have less patience for the constant follow up required for me to get things out the door (I’m talking about weeks of unanswered e-mails and phone calls).

Any suggestions as to how to raise this without jeopardizing my status?
