Are there particular times of the year that tend to be better for job hunting? Reason I’m asking, about 6 weeks ago it seemed like there were tons of new job postings. Now it seems to have dried up.
Here’s a question for the recruiters out there: do you want to see my portfolio?
I just started freelancing after having been FT for a long time. Top agency experience, Cannes Lions, NYC-based, DM me!
I interviewed recently at a big brand. I was cut after the 1st in-person round. As disappointing as it was, I asked recruiter for f/b. They actually replied w/honest f/b I can use going forward 😃
Hello everyone! Does anyone who works at Deloitte know how the referral process works. I’m currently applying and I put that I applied bc of an employee referral, but I wasn’t asked to add a name.
Why has it become so normal to ask for “homework”? I work 60-70 hour weeks on average I don’t have time to give you free work just so you can consider me for a job.

What’s the best way to ask if a job can be remote or at the very least hybrid? I live outside of a pretty major city, but I don’t want to have to commute every day. My current agency allows me to work remote, and I love the flexibility. But, I feel like it’s time to look elsewhere.
Best recruiters for in-house gigs?
A third party recruiter who was looking to forward my portfolio asked me about how much my current salary is. I remember reading somewhere saying that’s not allowed to be asked during an interview. Is it different when it’s a third party recruiter and it’s not an “official interview”? Assuming it shouldn’t have been asked, how should I have answered without coming across as impolite? 🤔
How do I get into a marketing or pr role when my resume has mostly media companies on it? ( I worked in media for 4 years)
Question for any external recruiters.
You placed me in my current role (and presumably were paid because of it). Can I reach out for a new role ?
