Not unusual. Talk to the project leader about the audit subject and client’s expectations. Be prepared to reference your prior experience. Also ask about personality of the client so you can match that energy.

I work in the ERP industry as a first year Oracle BTA for Deloitte. I am wondering if this is only happening to me.. this is my 5th week on the bench after applying to 30 roles on STAFFIT.

Hi All,

I am an ETL developer who got a chance to work on spark recently within my organization. Initially struggled and now got comfortable with scala spark in my project. I am looking to change job in data engineering but most JDs I see are asking for pyspark and not scala spark, only few are asking scala or Java or python.

Should I really learn python and pyspark as well to be able to find more opportunities? Or should I only apply for scala based roles?

Also I heard from one of the friend

I had an interview last week. The interviewer asked me whether I was apply for other jobs as well & how it was going. After the interview I felt like I shouldn’t have disclosed so much information. I shared that I have been actively applying for other jobs but that I haven’t gotten many responses. And that in the meantime I’ve been focusing on developing myself (finished reading PMBOK, taking LinkedIn Learning PM course, etc). Should I have said this? Now they know I don’t have many options 🤦🏾‍♀️.

Feel as if it’s awkward to be traveling and getting my hands into work with the team/client if they all know I’m leaving. TIA!

Hi,
During my job search, I got a call from a company called Quest corp. and they had scheduled an interview with MasterCard. I have already cleared the interview rounds with MasterCard. But these people are saying that I'll be working under Quess payroll and will actually be working for MasterCard. And after few months depending on my performance MasterCard might take me on their payroll.
I'm no sure whether to proceed ahead or not. Can anyone please help me out with this?

Why would a recruiter wish to speak one day before a scheduled interview. P.S. no communication regarding reschedule. Just a mail asking to speak.
