Let me clarify my earlier reply: most people are polarized by that. Which end of the spectrum you lay on likely depends on your personal opinion how big banking and central banking really operate in our world.

How is AT&T project in Techmahindra?

I have completed all the required items that needs to be completed in the Discover HCL portal for offer letter generation, including BGV. But now the HR responded that although the Business has provided the approval but still some approval is pending (slowdown in hiring) for which the offer is getting delayed. Any idea how long does it take? Anyone is facing a similar scenario?

Always remember one thing during this time of the great resignation if you plan on staying in the workday ecosystem. While it seems huge, the workday ecosystem is small. Don’t piss people off along the way. Stay committed through your notice period up until your last day of work. Someone you work with in the future will be tied to your past somehow! Keep your network strong if you plan to continue your workday career cause you never know who you will connect with again!

Any F 🐠 around DTLA who’d like to meet up for drinks or dinner this week?

I’m currently making 83K at AFS. 2.5 YOE. I’m interviewing with Deloitte GPS for a consultant level position and the recruiter mentioned 80K-90K for base salary. I don’t hate my role at AFS, I just want to leave to get more experience and money. I don’t think it makes sense to leave for anything less than 97K. Should I follow through with the interview for this role? Is there a chance Deloitte GPS would offer 97K-100K for the consultant level? This is for a Human Capital Consultant role btw

A recruiter reached out to me about a role that sounded interesting. I sent him my CV and he got back saying that the hiring manager wants me to add more details about my work and the projects I have worked on in the CV. I already have a broad description about my work and I have a confidentiality clause on my contract that doesn’t allow me to list any projects. I told him about that and he told me this is a bit strange and didn’t hear any other candidate having this issue. What should I do?
