I joined as Senior Associate at Cognizant on June 1st 2021. Am I eligible for the appraisal this year to get the hike by 2022. Can anyone please let me know the cutoff date for the elegibility for this year's review?
I got an job confirmation offer mail with salary structure from an mnc organiztion but not the actual offer letter, the HR is saying that HR head is on vacation so they will release the offer letter in two weeks.
But they are asking me to give resign based on the mail that I received.
Is it ok ? to resign based on the mail confirmation or should I wait for the offer letter to be released.?
Please help me out in this.

lam about to join a new org in a few days and they have planned a travel to Europe for me to get Technical KT. But the thing is they said only for 2 weeks. They are going to file a business visa(l can stay up to 90 days). I want to spend some more time there( atleast 2 months). How I can convince them to increase this duration?
Since I will be new there l'm not sure what to say. Only thing I know at this time is, the project is a bit complex and all developers are outside India.

Civil Engineer with 6+ Years of Construction Project Management experience in the Oil industry.
Thinking of #pivoting to Deloitte consulting practice.
If anyone has experience doing this, I am grateful for your input:
- What stream of consulting did you jump into? (Core Business Operations? Strategy? Tech & Performance?) Or other.
- Would 6 years translate to a manager? or Sr. Consulting experience?
- Any input / advice appreciated!
Thoughts on a recruiter who contacts you and then goes on to state his client may not like 10 years at one company. Answer to company culture is your future boss is a good guy and no training is provided.
Recruiters: if a candidate said something along the lines of “I’m obsessed with this opportunity” (not verbatim but it was that energy) how would you interpret that?
I don’t feel it came off desperate like I need to get this job, but rather in a “I’m really excited about this company and role” kind of way.
Edit: they’re also aware I’m in final round interview for another position, and meets all job requirements if that adds to anything
Stop doubting your potential. You can do it! You got what it takes to be the candidate that they are looking for!
I’m a solar electrician at sunrun. I focus mainly on energy storage systems such as Tesla batteries. Currently making 93k a year with Lots of OT that push me into 150k a year. High stress job and high reward. At 31, I feel I could keep up with the long hours but I know eventually it will have to stop as it’s not sustainable long term. I thought about joining the union after this but I’m afraid it might not be what it used to be. Can anyone tell me their experience as journeyman electrician there
Hi all, looking to career pivot from retail to talent acquisition/recruiting. Trying to make myself stand out to make up for my lack of experience. Some roles I am interested in prefer PHR or SHRM certifications. Would it be worth it to pursue a certification to land a position? Thank you
Anyone have any supply planning or demand planning roles available at their company i can apply for?(maybe a referral as well?)
Curious if anyone transited from an agency to a product manager role. How hard it will be and what to prepare?
Hello! I’m looking to do a pivot from program management/ops at a non profit to project management (ideally tech). I have my CAPM cert but I don’t think my current role gives me actual PM experience. With people I’ve talked to they say tech companies want PMs with tech backgrounds. Entry level/associate roles seem far and few between in my research.
Anyone have tips on what I can learn to get me toward a PM role in tech? I want to look into Scrum, Agile, Lean. Anything else?
I've done my post-graduation in management from a tier 2 B-school (IMT, TAPMI, IMI, KJSOM and the like). Majored in marketing with some operations subjects. I'm currently working as a research analyst for about 1.5 years supporting mostly consulting work in the health and life sciences industry.
I am looking to move out of this industry into a more direct industry-oriented role rather than currently (which is like looking into the industry from the outside).
Any advice? (cont. in comments)

i have an offer for $120K on 1099 and they want me to sign/start next Monday. I just got called for another position i’ve been interviewing for, on final stages of interview. Would it look bad to negotiate start date with $120K offer for following Monday to allow time for finishing out other interviews? (ideally would like options)
Hi! I’m looking to transition into instructional design careers. Working on building my portfolio. Does anyone know of any companies hiring for ID jobs that would be willing to share and/or refer? Preferably in VA or remote. I’ve looked on LinkedIn/indeed but with over 1,500 ppl applying for the same Ed Tech job, I figured this might offer more insight on lesser known companies. Thanks ya’ll!
