Recruiter reached out for tech role I’m interested in and asked for resume in advance. I haven’t updated mine in a few months and don’t want to make the move just yet. Can I decline but have the call?

Yupp! say you'd like to have an exploratory conversation

Yes, let them know you are passive but interested in learning more about the role. Have the call and then decide if it’s worth your time to update your resume. Recruiter should be able to conduct an initial screening call just based on your LinkedIn profile. Good luck!

Reminds me of a motivational speaker at some event I attended long ago. Guy worked at Hallmark I think it was, and after a long career somehow managed to get a job title that didn’t report to anybody, but sounded really important, like Chief Creativity Officer or something like that.

He would meet with all sorts of people from across the company who would pitch their ideas to him, and all he would do is just give everyone permission to do what they wanted to do.

You sound like a rule follower. Try a little rule bending, you might find you like it.

You should always have an updated resume and even if you’re passive you may find you’re more interested after talking with them. Also it doesn’t hurt to interview/leverage another offer if you think you’re underpaid.

Is there any chance I will be considered overqualified for an entry role? Will the MRED help me skip a few positions?

Hi 👋🏻 I’m new here! For people working in big 4 risk assurance, how many clients do you generally juggle at a time and how many hours do you typically work in a week? I just started a few months ago in an IA role for a company after working in external audit. I like the work, but it’s just not a great culture fit and I’m thinking of boomeranging back to public but for IA to get more of that experience.
