My agency will not fire a notoriously lazy and indecisive woman ECD through multiple rounds of layoffs because of the optics
So I have applied for 21 jobs in the last 3 weeks and I have had just 1 recruiter reach out and no interviews yet. Most of them are for jobs I feel I am a strong fit for. Is it a clear indicator that my resume is not attractive? Or is this level of striking out expected?
I feel that my healthcare data science experience is hurting my tech profile. I was being approached by FAANG recruiters previously, but now, i get interview requests from some random consultants. How do i change this? I am also looking to exit the healthcare industry.

When your number 1 company gives you an interview right after you receive an offer from your number 2 company...has anyone encountered this? How do you push the date back?

Campus recruiters at professional service firms — has scheduling final rounds changed in a virtual world for your firm or do you still try to schedule your candidates on Fridays with a full day of back to back interviews? Is it easier or now preferred to schedule ad hoc through the week? I was on maternity leave last year during COVID and I’m curious if preferences for students (or interview teams) have changed? I would still think the former/old way is better from work planning perspective.

I'm applying to 10 of the T15 in R1, with Cornell as my safety. Should I add more schools that are lower ranked in or just see where I land after R1? Really want to have at least 1 acceptance after R1.

I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting). Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued

I think about this all the time. I cringe when I hear people say “the diversity hire”. If you think hiring one blonde white woman is “diversity” in your organization, you can have it.

I really wish it were possible as a Senior to take a "quiet" or remote day every week and focus on work uninterrupted. I get that it would be a challenge for staff/mgrs but think it would be worth it.
I’ve been interviewing and I’m running out of excuses for being out of the office randomly and without much notice. I’ve used doctor’s appointment, dentist, “personal reasons” and an emergency appliance issue. Any others people have used? I don’t have kids, so none of those will work. Had an interview scheduled for Tuesday just now.
