I've been at my current company for 15 years and 17 in the insurance industry. I'm struggling to even get a callback to interview. In a year, I've had one callback. I've sought out input on my resume from folks at the Executive level and there aren't any red flags. Am I just too entrenched and the long tenure scares employers or what?

Linked in or fishbowl. Linked in is great to connnect with people and search for jobs. Many recruiters also use linked in.

Are you with the same company in the same role or have you moved roles within your company? Many people like to see movement that shows growth rather than complacency. Regardless just keep applying and highlight on your cover letter what you've accomplished in those 15 years and why you are interested in a the role you are applying for. I would highlight the specific opportunity for growth you are seeking within the role you are applying to.

Anyone have experience with a required on-site final interview for a fully remote job? I'll have already had an interview with the hiring manager and a teammate and a presentation of a case study. So with some of the team being fully remote and the role I'm interviewing for being fully remote I'm not sure what I should prepare for the on-site. I really want the role and want to respect their process but it's hard to justify visiting (across the country) and getting time off my current role.

I’m convinced that the reason some of these firms are so prestigious is because they have intentionally exclusionary recruitment practices.

I hate the way we evaluate candidates and decide on who is “high priority” during coffee chats.

Currently 6 years at job A at 100K and 10K annual bonus but lil to no upward mobility. It's safe if not going anywhere.

Recruiter reached out regarding Job B at 130K with greater advancement potential but it starts out at 6 Months Contract to Hire per the agency contract. No bonus, benefits adequate by comparison. There is no guarantee to go full time.
