The more you know about the position the better you can assess if the pro’s outweigh the con’s. Don’t be shy. Ask what you want to know. You’ll be surprised how much some people will share. Also keep in mind that clients aren’t forever so ask questions to assess the company culture.

- What do you like most about working with this client?
- What do clients like most about working with your company?
- Are there any pain points or areas that require extra attention (with the client or internally)?
- What is the clients approach to work? Are they looking to push boundaries or are they more conservative?
- What is the most interesting project you have or are planning to work on with this client? (If there’s something you are dying to work on bring it up!)
- Are there any brand milestones coming up that you are preparing for?

Hey all, 3rd party recruiter reached out to me about a job. We had interview which I think went well. I did not give my salary expectations, but the recruiter provided the hiring budget.

After sending resume, I am now being asked my current income. Seems expectation is ~20-25% comp increase when you change companies. Effectively it would be a promotion, but the budget would be significantly more than 25%.

Do I inflate my current comp? My wife said she had to find a paystub for her job.

Hi fishes,
My friend have cleared Tata Elxsi interview 5 months back and received her offer letter. Still now she haven’t recvd a joining letter. Couple of other friends are also facing similar issue.
Does anyone have any update on this?
Tried mailing to the HR and to their help desk. No response.
Its really disappointing. Even if they are not able to onboard candidates now, the least they can do is aknowledge and respond to the queries.
Hope someone can give more insight onto this issue.
