Got laid off a month ago after 1.5 years despite great snapshots and utilization. Was just offered a consulting position at a much smaller local firm for $5,000 less than what I was making before
Is it a red flag to MBA programs to leave my firm after 1-1.5 years without a promotion (promotion would be at 2 YOE)? Would it also be bad if I switched jobs more than once before applying (applying at 3 YOE, will enter school at 4 YOE)?
Daddy D is throwing around some pretty crazy referral bonuses right now. If I can hit four referrals, I’ll split evenly among all four + myself. Up to $10k per person and at least $2.5k per person. Put it in escrow and everything. So if you’re looking to change firms, a new opportunity, etc. DM me. Can easily negotiate a nice sign on bonus, and my offer should sweeten the pot.
I had an interview with the CCO last Friday for a role and I thought it went well cause he said he was impressed by my work and we seemed to hit it off but I haven’t heard back yet and am starting to get a little nervous. Is it too soon to send a follow up? Or is it just an American thing to use superlatives when they’re really not all that impressed...
