Thoughts on applying to a role with one of your vendors while on an engagement utilizing them? I see some potential ethical dilemmas depending on expectations. Has anybody made this transition before?

Unless there’s a no-poach agreement then there’s nothing wrong. Unless your planning on stealing company equipment on the way out I can’t think up any ethical dilemmas

Depends on what your NDA / non compete says about vendors. If its in there, then just need to ask for a waiver.

Happens all the time. Smart companies give you their blessing as it is always beneficial to have allies with their clients. Dumb companies make a big stink and threaten with lawsuits.

Nothing wrong with applying. It may put the vendor in an awkward position if they don’t think you’re right for the role, but no problem as long as you’re not exerting improper pressure on them

They asked me to apply.

Hello. I’ve recently scheduled an interview for a position as an Assistant US Attorney. I am trying to 1) prep for interview and 2) determine if this would be a good move.

I applied for an engineering manager role at a fast scaling startup. My second interview went very well to the point where the manager told me to connect on LinkedIn in case I have more questions and the internal recruiter should get back to me soon. That was Wednesday. I sent a follow up email to the recruiter expressing that I enjoyed the interview and look forward to feedback. It's now Monday and I am wondering how long I should wait before reaching out again if at all?

First time poster here! After spending 4 years as a mid-level ops manager, I tried to break into HR through talent acquisition. Now after 6 years in TA, I've had a hard time getting out of it. My goal was always to get into a more broad HRBP position, but I've since worked for smaller orgs without a solid HR career path. When I ask about my career goals, they keep telling me, "Soon!" Or "Maybe in 6 months!" I'm testing SPHR in June. Any advice for securing the type of role I'm aiming for?
