I have hit a threshold.
I’m 7 years in, don’t want to transition to a leadership position, and I’m burnt out from recruiting itself.

I’d thinking of moving to HR Analytics or Program Management.

I’m staying put for now considering the ongoing layoffs. Hoping to look at internal mobility next year.

12 years in recruiting, lots of successes. I feel the model is broken and one day companies will wake up.

I like that recruiting has made me dangerously conversant in many industries but feel it has done nothing for career growth beyond a paycheck.

I’ve been in agency for around 1 year and I think I’ve drunk enough of the kool aid. Yet going to internal seems scary as though it seems so unstable.

How much a Director or Head of Data/Insights working in a Creative agency makes?

I’m in a process for this position in an agency but it’s the first time an negotiating a salary in the US. I moved here a year ago, I’ve been working remotely for a Latin American company… and of course my salary is not enough and I’m trying to make the ends meet at the end of the month with a 4K salary. I don’t want to look to pretentious and obviously not too way cheap too.

Any advice? How much would be ok?

In seeking to advance beyond an impending permanent burnout spinning wheels at lower levels, how does one best acquire a top position, say, Director, or apply their skills in a way that’s fulfilling again? Pivot is such a different kind of advancement, its not climbing or moving laterally in a game of chutes and ladders; its more redefining what it means to work with the guts and passion. With a company lead whose mind is out of the game and ready to retire and move on, how do I get his job?

Good Morning all,

Since I pivoted into TA (from the Wild West known as Finance) Tech Recruiting has always been the goal. But I’m having a hard time finding a way to get into that space (I do understand there’s a hiring crisis). Nevertheless, does anyone know of tech companies that are hiring? I may be low on the experience side so I’m willing to look at contract/ entry roles as well. Also, any advice will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
