Are you customizing your resume to the requirements of the job or leveraging the key words or connecting with people in the org? Otherwise have a professional review your resume. Had some two levels down from me do this and got a CIO job. Totally insane but works

Just to clarify, it’s saying that I’m posting as a data scientist because I have my data analyst title pending approval. Not sure why fishbowl needs to approve that title…..

Why are you looking to change jobs?

Not sure how you’re formatting your resume. I am getting a very good response but I do have 4+ yoe in DS

I got a MUCH better response when I had my resume and Linkedin professionally rewritten, was barely getting any bites before that

I'll see if I can dig out the exact company as this was a few years ago, but you can found tons of resume writers on Upwork, and you can also search resume writing companies. I did a lot of research to find a service where you could talk to the writer (like a 15-20 min call) to talk through my experience, responsibilities and role because what I do is a bit niche. Once we had the intro call, they took it from there and redid my resume. Once I was happy with that, they rewrote my LinkedIn accordingly

It's also just crazy right now with a lot of people looking for new jobs. Might take a while, but use that time to review your resume, cover letter, make sure to include key words from the job listing and company values

I manage a team that’s part data scientists in e-commerce. Happy to take a look at your resume.

Got offer from a top 10 PE firm, but it’s a senior position in Corp accounting. Base comp increased by 13%. Currently M1, not sure if should I take the job for money or should pass because it’s a step down on title. Hours are about 40-50/wk

I was contacted by a recruiter about a role at a large tech company (not FAANG) but the role is as a W2 contractor until their hiring freeze is lifted. If brought on, I would be included in headcount for next year and immediately hired full time once the freeze is up assuming I do well as a contractor. The base comp for the full time is ~75% more than my current base and the role interests me. Basically, I want to sanity check this, am I ignoring red flags in considering this?

Hi Big4, I'm coming up close to 2 years of work exp and I'd love to explore a role at EY, KPMG and PwC in analytics and data engineering. I'd been looking at Deloitte as well, however on multiple occasions Deloitte recruiters told me that I need more "years of experience" without factoring my skillsets. On conducting research, I found developers writing basic SQL queries that I could script at the beginning of my career. While I'm still learning, I'd appreciate anyone who can help :) Cheers!
