A4, that's also true for our competitors (obviously)

OP, your sample size is 1? I'll ask the question: do you think that is a statistically valid sample size?

Extrapolating from your below statement 🙃 Either way, I'd encourage you not to judge us by our recruiters - they're not indicative of the broader firm. Good luck OP!

So this happened. Since getting laid off I’ve been applying to every job that I believe I’m qualified for. 30 minutes after I hit send I received an email from the company stating that I did not have the right qualifications for the job. No one from the company looked at my portfolio. How do I get past the algorithm and get my work noticed by a real person?

I was laid off fall of last year, allegedly due to covid. I just saw that they re-listed my position and now am devastated and doubting everything about my career. I got good reviews at this and my previous jobs but many are cowardly about giving honest feedback. I took a step down and started a new job recently so I’ll be ok in the long run but the job I was laid off from was my “dream job”. I don’t have strong family/friend support, exacerbated by covid isolation. Any wisdom/advice?

Why do I always see job postings for Pharma and Healthcare agencies? It’s like they can never fill their roles. 24/7 365. If I was in that part of advertising and enjoyed the work, I feel like my job security, promotions and money would be in a much better spot than where I am now, If anyone is looking for a job due to Covid layoffs, might not hurt to suck it up and do pharma work for a bit!

My most recent director told me that my time is being charged as Sr Consultant, so that’s the expectation for my performance. My title is associate, so two levels below a senior consultant. My last two appraisals have been scored against senior consultant roles, which my company has used to justify why I’m not eligible for a salary increase or promotion to consultant. Is this normal?

When updating your LinkedIn is it good or bad to specify what “type” of consultant you are in the title? For example - Management consultant, Healthcare consultant, Technology consultant (at x firm), etc. Or just put Consultant (at x firm). I’ve seen both ways and am wondering if one is considered more standard than the other?
