It’s illegal in New York State for recruiters to ask where you live. Just don’t bring it up. They also cannot ask how much you currently make.

I’m having the same problem OP! @ACD1 but what if your current employer sees it and @CW1 what if they ask you to come in for an interview like the next day?

Figure out your top 3 or 4 agency targets and start reaching out directly to their in-house recruiters. Big plus if you’re not asking them for re-lo pkg!

Have your website speak directly to the agency that you want to work at. Post work of clients they already have

I took a ton of sick days and it was definitely an investment. But you could also book a trip and then just squeeze in as many interviews/informational meetings as you can. Start building the network by visiting as often as you can afford and hopefully something comes of it

Also you can suggest Skype

Hi! I left ZS after 2.5 years as a 6 months AC to join EY as a SCon. I want to join ZS back as soon as I complete a year here.

Also, what kind of compensation and role can I expect once I join back considering I get a 16.5LPA+ Bonus here. Do you recommend going back to ZS or should I stay with EY India?

How much will it hurt me to email and explain that I will be unavailable from 9/5 to 9/16 but I am extremely interested and don’t want to miss hearing from them if I have a chance for the position?
