Is LinkedIn premium really worth it? 2 months in searching analytics jobs but the only source of interview by far is referral 🙄

It doesn’t help with job applications, but does help in looking up people at target companies and networking with them.

Keep trying. I've been applying for 2 months and in the last week I was able to land many interviews all at once.

No. Doesn’t increase your odds at all.

If you’re going to simply apply for jobs via the job posting, no, it is not worth it and would not recommend you get it.

The best way to get a job through LinkedIn is to
1) Discover which jobs are hiring
2) Reach out to folks who are currently at the company in the role
3) Ask to be put into contact with another person on the team / hiring manager

LinkedIn Premium helps you have more filters to discover folks that would match your role / have a mutual connection and gives you InMails to contact them. If you’re not connecting with hiring managers for the jobs you’re applying for, it’s 100% not worth it.

Fair enough, thx!

Why do you want to leave EY? Are you in EY Data Analytics? LinkedIn premium is great for sourcing

Haha lol. Check out Accenture if you want consulting

It’s a good boost to your profile. If you can afford it then it’s a very small price to pay for what you might land. Doesn’t affect your odds though.

Worth it. Think of the cost as a percentage of your future salary delta - it’s completely immaterial, even if it’s only a marginal boost in outcome.

Interviews are very frustrating. Currently I'm paid pretty good but the tasks are extremely boring.

My problem: I don't get a big salary jump anywhere I interview with. Even if I write my salary expectations, they still invite me but always tell me this is not within their budget (although the interviews go great).

In my current company I am getting really depressed. But I am dependend on a high salary (paying for my parents), so I can't take less.

Any advice to get into a better situation?

Started my career at a B4 tax. Throughout my 6 years thus far I've been ambitious, always over achieving and striving to be a partner one day. Some part of me still wants to make it there. Recently started looking outside of PA and got a great industry offer, money is good and the position seems interesting. Now I am second guessing myself. I always considered former colleagues who exited as "didn't have what it takes". I don't want to be that. Conflicted. Please share any words of wisdom.
