Push back and tell them you need more time. Firms are struggling to find talent, if you’re really someone they want they will wait. Bypass the recruiter and talk to a hiring manager if the recruiter is a problem

I’ve done it in the past. If you see it as your life line to leave your company immediately, you do what you got to do. Its fine as long as you come up with a good excuse or willing to burn that bridge.

Thanks. I am going to try to request more time from them as a first route.

Is it good to accept a job offer from a UK company if they are providing only visa sponsor and not relocation support. 1. What are the points to consider or ask HR before and after taking their interviews? 2. What type of visa should I be ideally looking for (considering the job security once I reach UK)? *I am single and ready to relocate. * HR just mentioned that they can provide visa support.

Hi everyone, I got approved for an L4 position at Google in the Bay Area and wanted to know how much compensation I should be expecting. My decision came back really fast and the recruiter told me it was because interview and referral feedback was very positive. Currently an SDE2 at Amazon (promoted in April) in NJ with just over 2 YOE. My current base is ~150k and TC is ~180k. I read that the median TC for an L4 in CA is ~250k. Should I be expecting more because of my positive feedback? Thanks!

Currently looking for a job opportunity specific to Talent Acquisition/Recruiting, as I want to get out of the Generalist realm.

This is the way I want my career to transition but I think it may be a challenging adjustment.
