I usually give them a few tasks to do, things like doing a search for positions (and a format for how to respond to me with their findings), changes to resume, questions to answer. I have had only one person follow through with those tasks. Those who don't, I do not spend more time with.

Ask them to do a trump impression and see if they cross their arms every time you talk about stormy. If they do, they are character actors. Hire them on the spot

Hi all! I am hoping to exit consulting after 7 years so I am currently updating my cv. Some recruiters recommend to build a skill based CV (with 2-3 bullets for each skill) for consultants rather than listing individual projects. Any thoughts?

I'm in salary negotiations for a great role, but there's a small gap (~$10k) to even match my old salary. They have most of the obvious benefits like unlim. vacation, low healthcare premiums, 401k matching, permanent WFH, etc. Right now, severance pkg. and a more senior title are most important. Has anyone negotiated a title bump? Outcome? Are there additional benefits I should also consider?
