Just had the worst experience with a recruiter, read the role description for 5 min. Told me to only look for reg jobs, not asking over 75k. Worst of all,asking me to take a day off to visit his firm.

Wow...did you check out the recruiters linkedin....were they a rookie. Amateur hour

Taking a day off to interview is normal. And what did he mean by regular jobs

No the recruiter said take a day off to visit the HR company in person to talk about my experience. Not for interview. Not regular jobs but only Regulatory related jobs.

Definitely sounds like a rookie.

I recently interviewed for a client-side marketing manager role with a global company. I’ve been engaged with the company for over a year and built a network of internal advocates. One of my internal contacts was the hiring manager who promised to do whatever she could to help me get hired. The position was on her team and she told me to apply. After five interviews I was not selected although I met all of requirements and more. I’ve yet to from her as to why. Would you fight this?

Hi! I’ve had a few recruiters reach out about roles that look very exciting but I’m really worried about leaving my current role before my 401K vests in early summer.

Is there a right way to bring this up with recruiters for either a work-around, or so I can keep the relationship going and be on their radar?

Experienced hire Manager here, informed before Christmas that I’ll be taking another lap but not because of performance (5/5 on scats and all operating at next level) or metrics (22mm in MR) but the only reason is I need more time in the “saddle”… During this time, I’ve been replying to recruiters and after a PPMD interview last week, I was offered an SM role at a smaller firm with a base pay increase of 45% (225k) over my current salary. Very much considering this… thoughts?

Just finishing my first week in as an audit intern and genuinely I have no idea what I'm doing or even a general idea of the audit process. The senior associate left the engagement last week so it's just me and an associate, and they don't have time to give me instruction. Am I stupid or did the e-learns not prepare me for any of this? The training told me I'd be auditing cash but I haven't even touched a bank reconciliation.
