Hello! Q on how to follow up w/ recruiter about a role. DM’d them about Founding Product Designer role, they “love my background” but looking for someone with actually 10 YOE (JD says 4+). It’s been a little over a mo. with role seemingly still open on their site.
I’ve since updated resume w/ + experience (isn’t close to 4 years tho) and exp is aligned. Looking at the rest of the JD and type of company, I know I can fill the role.
Best way to strategically reach back out?

Guys , whoever is interviewing and planning to join , do ask project availablity on priority basis before you take decision. On Java front looks like there is some project issue due to recent slowdown in market. My offer was not revised even after agreement with recruiter because of this.

Agency recruiters: do you participate in kick-off meetings with hiring managers?
My company thinks that’s not scalable for us to be in those calls. But I find it hard to speak enthusiastically about a job to candidates I interview when I never got to even hear the founders speaking about it themselves.
We have now agreed that I’ll get to see the recording of those calls. I’m not sure if that will suffice, though. Any thoughts on this?

I have a business case interview with Acumen/Salesforce for a Marketing BA role. I’ve never done a case interview before, but I’m wondering if it will be asking about best uses for Salesforce/marketing cloud in the scenario provided, or if it’s a typical case? The recruiter said it’ll be interactive and test problem solving.
Anyone in AFS willing to chat about the practice and their experience? My brother found a role he’s interested in applying for, but curious if anyone could talk to him about so he could get a feel for it. I worked at Accenture years ago, but not in Federal, so I know nothing about it!

After spending 4 years as a mid-level ops manager, I tried to break into HR through talent acquisition. Now after 6 years in TA, I've had a hard time getting out of it. My goal was always to get into a more broad HRBP position, but I've since worked for smaller orgs without a solid HR career path. When I ask about my career goals, they keep telling me, "Soon!" Or "Maybe in 6 months!"
I'm testing SPHR in June. Any advice for securing the type of role I'm aiming for?
Can anyone share their story on how they broke into AS role from AE level? Feeling like I’m hitting the wall.

Need your opinions. Wife is currently 14 weeks pregnant and I’m expecting a job offer in the next week or so. Do I sign and accept an offer and then tell them about needing to take paternity leave once I begin or do I discuss this before I accept?

What should i expect from IBM for role of Senior software engineer profile.
Yoe- 2.6 years.
Last week I was given amazing news that I was pregnant. Today, after my repeat blood work results, I was told my HCG levels aren’t rising adequately. I am crying in the bathroom stall at work.
Idk how, but I got the offer. Still wondering if it’s real (it’s been 30mins since the phone call) because I thought I performed so poorly. I wouldn’t have passed myself. I hope the interviewers didn’t make a mistake (accidentally mixed up evals for another candidate, or the call was meant for another candidate w/ the same name). I do want to thank the Fishbowl community though. So many of you took the time to share your experiences and encourage me. I couldn’t have done this without you.
I’m trying to leave AWM tax and go to another PA firm. Problem is most firms I’ve talked to want me to join their AWM practice and then transfer to another tax group. Any tips on pushing back without losing job opportunities? AWM is just pure hell and I need to get out.

Can you deduct 50% of a home office if you use it 50% for business and 50% for W-2 work?
I know you can deduct a portion of a room if only a portion is used for business, but what about splitting expenses based on usage instead of area?

Do you think a dress that ends a couple inches above the knee is appropriate for the office? Do you have suggestions on how to lengthen it or make it more office appropriate? I don’t typically wear tights but could in winter with this dress… I really love how it fits every where else so I don’t want to skip it! I got it used from Salvation Army so it’s not like I paid a fortune but still.

Looking for tips/suggestions in leaving public after 6 years. Also wanting to change industries at the same time. The latter appears to be the hard part with so much time in my specific industry.
Has this happened to anyone? Where you go through the interview process - and they call you back saying you did great in the interview and that you'd be a great fit but the role has been filled. So they are going to pass you to other hiring managers and see if you'd be a good fit in the other teams? I'm so confused.
Today is the official last day at PwC. Mixed feeling, gonna miss my coworkers but excited about my next job.
Got an interview with KPMG next week for senior auditor position. Can anyone gives any input (e.g. What questions do they ask? How’s the process looks like?)
Ok fishbowl family - I need advice. Rising senior 1 here and realizing that I genuinely get no joy out of audit. I’m way too stressed and really do not care about accounting and have made it a life goal to never book a journal entry. I want to take the next year to figure out what my dream job is and go for it. Here’s what I like: I love talking to people, mentoring & teaching, organizing, learning. I literally loved everything in college- I was between majoring in accounting or psychology. 1/X

I loathe tax, I want to work to live not live to work. Switching fields means starting all over again. I feel torn. Anyone have success stories? Advice?
So.. if I put in my notice and they let me go immediately due to going to a competitor (I heard that pwc pays for the two weeks regardless) - can I immediately start at the new job? Wouldn’t that mean that I am on both payroll for two weeks? Is that an issue?
Accepted an offer recently (last week) and haven’t heard back from the HR regarding a confirmed start date (we discussed dates but didn’t nail down in offer letter) or background check, is this stuff that normally takes time to get set up? Thanks
Have you ever given honest feedback to a company when leaving? For example the d&i initiatives leadership is taking has lead to joking about common racial stereotypes in office whenever an update is sent. I’m not used to those comments being said so freely for all to hear and fear they’d hire a minority (as part of those initiatives) in my place and subject them to that. I’m not sure what there is to gain but wanted to get other points of view.
To my fellow foreign professionals - have you ever changed employer within 180 days from I-140 approval? Are you able to retain your PD? Please suggest if there’s another bowl I should post this. Thx!
I applied at this company and last Friday they verified my references. And then 4 days later hiring manager sets up a phone conversation letting me know they still have other finalist they are interviewing and will let me know when t they make a decision. I really wanted this job and now idk if I’ll even get it. But my question, why would she verify my references and not offer me the job!is that normal ? This never happened to me before 😞

Are there specific areas of knowledge listed in the job posting? My main interview with the hiring manager for my job focused on experience in those areas
I’d be prepared to discuss any complex accounting matters that you have owned (identification, research, resolution, documentation, consultation, collaboration with client, differing perspectives, etc). In addition, be prepared to discuss the accounting area that you are the strongest. As EY1 mentioned, ensure you have talking points for the areas mentioned in the JD.
