Starting a new job in a few weeks. I have a downtime in between and have started growing a beard. I interviewed without one, would it be weird to go in day 1 with a beard? It’s going to be short and tidy and right before Movember if that helps the case.

I don't see anything wrong with that, but it must appear "well groomed" (beard oil, comb, trimmer etc) and not like you woke up from a coma - clean neck lines, no frizzy hairs, etc. Beards have been trendy for a few years now and I have seen a lot of people keep one. So if it looks good on you, why not.

I don't know where you are based, but beards are acceptable nearly everywhere now.

I have been approached by 3 separate HR people at a startup company to interview for a position. I already have a fulltime job that pays well and I only started 6 months ago too. Anyways, the pay was intriguing and the job was a high level scientific advisor so I did interviews. At the last interview, at the end I was told the job was for management but I prepared for a different kind of interview. I am waiting for an offer or rejection letter. I feel peeved that they wasted my time. Red flags?

For the past one month and a half I have been looking for entry level roles in Governance risk and Compliance but I seem not to be landing interviews .

Recently received an offer for a role that required me to interview with multiple people on the team along with some other individuals at the company. I don’t really see myself working with the team the position is on but i could see myself working with the others i interviewed with. Is there any way to politely decline the offer but mention that if the other team(s) is hiring in the future to keep me in mind?

Hey team! So I was laid off from my SDR position about a week ago. A couple months back, I had an offer for a BDR position that I ended up turning down but I really liked and connected with the manager. Is it worth it to reach out? I applied to other positions in the same company. What about reaching out to previous co workers at a different company? Not sure how to navigate this… please help. Also I’m sorry if this is the wrong bowl to post in.

Hi everyone! There’s a role that I really wanted but right now it’s in LA with no opportunity to be elsewhere. At first I couldn’t move (so they passed on my application) but now I can move.

Wondering if it would be appropriate to reach out to the recruiting manager and let them know?

The most frustrating thing about getting rejected for a job is the excuse they use which gives zero insight into what it really was.

During my interview for a Senior role they asked what I felt was important in my role as an assurance senior. One of the things I said is I felt coaching was an important part of my role and gave my reasons. Their excuse for not giving me the role was because the company wasn't big enough and they didn't have anyone for me to coach.

I’m handling several pro per cases right now. Client and pro pers are 6+ figures apart on $. MTD was denied and success on MSJ is iffy. Some claims may have merit, but not at the $ demanded. Pro pers are unswayed by arguments about legal merits, actual damages, or probable success—two brought their claims “on principle.”

These are not my first pro per cases, but the others were easily dismissed or settled.
