It depends a lot on how senior you are. The more senior the longer it takes. At the consultant level it is probably 2 months. At the M/SM level closer to 4 or 5, for a P it can be 6months to a year. Of course there are many factors such as how picky you are, location, lateral move vs vertical, same job type or true career change, etc.

Took me about 6-8 months. I started casually looking and was specific in what I was looking for. Ended up hating my job so much I expanded my interest then spent 4 months trying hard before getting in. Also... the second I got referrals I immediately started getting interviews and offers. Up to that point it was applying online into the abyss.

I’ve had a job offer on the table within 2 weeks of a resume drop before and started a month later. More recently it will have taken 4 months in total as I was was super focus on the exact role I wanted and opted to go through connections rather than applying online

I had my first few rounds of Technical interview at Accenture couple of days back.
In today's HR interview, the HR tells me that we can't proceed with my interview since the amount of CTC they've fixed for my level (Level 11) is lesser than what I'm already earning.
During the pre interview round, the HR had offered me my expected CTC.
I don't understand why someone would do that.

Hi friends. In the happiest 5 year relationship ever. Then suddenly my boyfriend breaks and held my prior anxiety and panic attacks against me. He yelled at me in a way I’ve never experienced. He’s always been so comforting to me (and I have been to him when he’s upset). I know he’s close to proposing. I’m lying here in bed wondering if this relationship can be salvaged after what was said. I don’t feel like he can accept me when my mental health is struggling. How do I move past it?
