I started a job in July and was really excited about it but the daily operations and company have disappointed me much more than I had anticipated. 2 weeks before I was due to start, a recruiter reached out to me from a more exciting, smaller (but growing) similar firm but I was already projected to start this job and didn’t want to take the risk. I am wondering when it would be appropriate to re-engage with this recruiter about opportunities to interview with their firm? Any advice?

Hypothetically speaking: You are interviewing w/the Hiring Manager. You are enthusiastic, well-versed and appropriately caffeinated. Throughout the interview, the HM yawns on camera - 4 times. Not your average yawn, more like a hippo yawn - including the sound that comes with it. Would you think they heard your answers during those yawns? Should you expect an invitation to the next round?

Do you have any tips on how to stay motivated and productive during the day? Pre-COVID and WFH, I could knock out several high quality workpapers a day. Now I am lucky if I can comprehend an email.
- fairly decent place to work (from someone who worked with the Vancouver and San Jose offices). never met a blue badger (permanent employee) who had awful things to say.
- Ashley Goodall (their SVP, Methods & Intelligence) co-authored a brilliant book on leadership and people management called “Nine Lies About Work” that makes me believe they can be an awesome place to work
- red badgers had low morale since they’re contract workers and can be terminated at any time
