I just list my job titles. I mostly have well known colleges, companies and titled on my resume though. Got recruited into my last job (consulting). Cold applied to about 10 positions across 6 companies and got to final round with 3 companies (current job).

Short. No one has time to read big blurbs

Define short? The two weeks after I updated my LinkedIn to resemble something more of a resume (like I’d seen with some colleagues) vs. 2-liners, my profile views and outreach from recruiters improved substantially (as did quality of leads).

I’m leaving a Manager role to take a Director one. They are finalizing the formal offer letter now. I want to leave my current team on good terms, not drop the ball on projects I’m leaving. I’d also like (need) at least a week to refresh and reset and get organized before starting the new director role. I’ve been negotiating terms with the new place since September 3. We agreed on compensation yesterday. Is asking for a Nov 1 start date pressing my luck/being a jerk or totally reasonable?
