Recruiter told me the role normally has 3 interviews but both of my first two were with partners and they might just be able to make a decision between the two of them and not have a third…Can you bypass rounds?

While idk how often it happens, definitely can bypass rounds. It was really odd but I only had one round

Absolutely. I didn't have a case study and skipped some steps. If it's clear you know what you're doing or you're a strong referral it's easier for them to make the call.

I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.). I work with reps at these places as part of my job, but technically their loyalty is to my clients (the ones spending $ on their platform), not to me, working at the client’s creative agency. So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?

For those who exit to industry, do you find recruiters lowball? They often quote a salary based on YOE and their standard pay - often lower because their salary progression is slower. 4YOE at consulting you make $120k~$150k but they quote $100k because that’s how they pay their homegrown analysts. Nobody thus far thinks 4y at consulting is worth 5-6 YOE, I’ve even met someone who only match me to their 2-3 YOE analyst because they think their program is more prestigious and want to hold me back.
