Start your trial, and try to cancel it 1-2 days before trial expiry , you would end up getting a better deal

Worth it for power searching people at the firm you’re looking to join.

If you want to go directly to the recruiters this does help and it seems like the suggestions get better with the premium membership which is odd but it may not be needed for basic job search effort?

Yes- all my calls back were from LinkedIn, Ladders and some form Builtin (I looked for startup tech roles)

Worth the trial and maybe a couple months for the insights it gives inti companies (avg tenure is a good one)

Worth it

Easily DM hiring managers and recruiters. Success rate has been like 10% but that 10% is still key

Worth it when actively looking. Less so once you arent.

I lost my last job a few weeks before Christmas last year and it took me a long while to find a new one. Ultimately I ended up moving to a new city for a job I was really excited about. However, within the first few weeks I suffered a major medical setback which led to a crippling bout of depression. I am finally starting to feel like a person again but I'm afraid the ship has sailed on my having success in my new role.
