Hey every one. I’m looking for an entry level recruiter or customer success associate job. Can anyone assist?


What are you buying during the Rouge sale? I need ideas!


Skill : Performance Testing
YOE : 8.1+
CTC : 12.4LPA+(fixed)
Current Company : PwC India
I know I am underpaid, but my leaders are forcing me to work on multiple projects, for which I am getting anxiety even before working or denying.
What is the solution? Provided I don't want to switch & increase salary just to provide more tax to govt or the work may increase more too.
I need 100% job stability, which only PwC can provide.
Genuine advice needed!!
