Apply as soon as you see the opening you’re interested in - you never know how long it’ll be available.

There’s plenty of time to do company research and all that after you submit your app. It usually takes a few days or weeks for them to even schedule an interview, so there’s no need to front load all that work before you even apply.

I wanted to get referral BEFORE I apply. Wrong strategy and missed the Adobe MBA role application 😭

**Not a recruiter/sourcer/hiring manager/HR**

You want to get a referral, tailor your resume, and read up a little bit on the company if possible before applying. You need to balance that with applying as soon as possible after the job is posted. I try to always apply within 3 days of the posting date, but jobs in my field get a lot of applicants.

If they get hundreds of applicants in the first several days, they'll probably review the applications, select who they want to phone screen, and move forward with them.

They have no reason to go back and check apps again unless all of their selected people fall through. So applying too late can cause you to get rejected, even if the position is still up on their site.

*This doesn't apply if your field has very low levels of qualified candidates relative to job openings.

I wait till last day to apply for Microsoft…certainly tons of apps

If you're at business school and applying to campus postings, then referrals don't matter. Companies have a team/person that reads all MBA applications/resumes, whereas referrals are mostly used for getting your resume read by a human rather than tossed by an automated system. Apply quickly.

Lesson learned. I missed out some of my favorite firms already. Actually I am applying for MBA roles but tech firms barely do on campus recruitment. Thus it is a directly apply via the website to MBA roles

Apply right away and seek referral after.

Got it. Thanks I thought people won’t refer if I apply first as they won’t get referral bonus if I apply fist

Question about job performance

I have been in this position for about 8 months now. There are a few duties that I am still lacking skills in and have been told numerous times to familiarize myself with and I feel that my coworkers are constantly annoyed with how slowly I am picking up on this. While I am getting better than when I started, I was curious about if or whether or not this will cause my termination.

I have an opportunity to be a Food and Beverage manager for a hotel I have been for 6 years. Currently I am overseeing all operations but want to focus more on the F&B world. Would anyone know how much salary I should be asking for this role?

I found a company I was really excited about working at. I applied for the job and went through 5 rounds of interviews. At the end they said I was OVER qualified and they want me for a different position higher up in the company. I was super excited they then had me go through 5 more rounds, 3/5 people were the same. The interviews mostly went "didn't you get the job, I highly recommend you? I'll just put you down as a 10". After those were done they told me I was UNDER qualified. Can't win!
