Pretty sure my managing partner just caught wind of me applying to other firms even though I used a recruiter. I know it happens, but how do I prepare for the potential blowback? What do I say if he asks about it?

Someone once asked me if I was applying for jobs, they then said they saw my resume “out on the web”. My counter to them was, are you applying for jobs? And if so, should I start? And if not, how did you come across my resume? It caused the person to think. I then started looking because I knew I wasn’t going to be there for long. Good luck

I dunno, double down but be nonchalant. “Just keeping my eye on the market; I like knowing my options.”

Right. It’s been an employer’s market for so long. But the only way you have power in your working relationship is when you have the ability to leave, real or perceived.

Need more specifics. Why are you looking? What’s your level and practice? Would anything make you stay?

Good luck with this.

Hi fam, I need some advice. I have an offer to leave consulting to go to a “startup” I’m really excited about. That said, the comp is on the lower end of what I was hoping for (slightly lower than what I’m making now, including equity) and there’s a very good chance I’m getting promoted to manager next month at my current firm. No room to negotiate TC so that’s off the table. I’ve interviewed for a few FAANG roles (which didn’t work out for a mix of reasons) with TC much higher than...

How long did you wait between interview rounds? I had my first R1 interview in may, and found out around Memorial Day that I was moving on to the next round.

I know the process at Google takes awhile, but wondering if I should continue to follow up/if this is an indication. It’s for a Pgm role in GCP

On an MBB case R1 interview, interviewer asked if I had info on future communication and I just said "Just finished R1 and R2 is going to come presumably based on R1 interviews", potentially implying that I thought nailed the case. I had not. I knew I'd bombed it. 😅😂🤦‍♂️ I literally found a way to bomb again in the last 30 seconds.

Looking for advice. I’m currently interviewing for a position that pays $20k more than I make now. It seems like the job would not be giving me much for my portfolio and may have some work/life balance issues (but tbh what agency doesn’t). I’ve got piles of student loan debt. I’m only in year 2 of my career. Do I take this job for a year, deal with the downsides, pay off a huge chunk of my debt, then get back to fun stuff? Or will it hurt my career to have a portfolio gap?

Any ideas on how to disconnect and disengage from the multiple projects they've thrown me into as they extract every last ounce of labour from me in order to make it another 6 months? Have to stay that long so I don't pay back the signing bonus. I usually give work my all but just don't have it in me anymore. Ideas on how to coast? And no, flagging my burn out won't help. They know. They don't care.
