It will be. Most agencies want to hire the manager / director levels right now for the next year. The Junior hiring boom hasn’t quite hit yet cause they want to get leadership in place first. Hang in there and keep putting stuff out into the world.

@AS2 You're also up against a lot of people who are local to LA and we're laid off/looking for new gigs here

Most holding company agencies have a net-new employee hiring freeze until Q1. Reach out now, but nothing will start cooking until Jan

Isn’t it well known that most agencies won’t hire in Q4?

@AS1 totally get that - it’s just that I have only seen very, very few offerings in LA. Worries me a little bit!

Yes. The first few months of the year are usually big times for switching jobs. Just stick it out. It’s awful, but you’ll get through it

Work life balance is a fancy term used by recruiters in India in IT services sector, in a still developing economy like India it befalls on our generation to bring business provide uniterrupted services to clients sitting in developed world.
Unless the roles are reveresed and India wants similar IT services by giving hefty billing on our own timezone the term WLB is like expecting snowfall in Delhi.
For IT service people WLB is a state of mind when one has established oneself into the process.

If I am a 2nd year analyst being promoted to C in June, would I apply to GSAP next year (2022) or the following year (2023)? My goal was to apply to grad school this fall, thinking I would be eligible for the 2022 GSAP cycle, but looking at the timeline I got a bit confused when I would become eligible. This year marks my second performance review.
