I just straight up asked what busy season hours will be like. The partner said “55-60 is our requirement but we work extremely hard but if you’re concerned about 80-100 hours that’s not us”

This is a job seeker’s market. I would just be honest and say that you are leaving public to pursue a role with good WLB at a company you could see yourself growing with long-term. Any negative or dismissive reactions to this statement would indicate that the role is not a good fit for you. Any CPA knows the hours in public can be unreasonable and aren’t sustainable for most people, so it doesn’t look bad to inquire about WLB by any means.

Are FAANGs only targeting candidates from other FAANGs? How do I get my foot in the door?

Hi! I'm currently in a dilemma. I recently got an offer from a company that wants me to give a final answer by Friday AM but I am simultaneously interviewing with KPMG and in the final round waiting for my call with the partner. KPMG is my top choice, but if I don't get hired by KPMG, I don't want to lose this offer. Have any of you accepted an offer and then got an offer from another company that you wanted to work at and left the job that you just started? What other advice do you guys have?

Hi everyone. Not sure this post falls into the right category but here it goes: I have been talking to two agencies who are interested in my work. One already made an offer. The other has not yet, but we are in a second round of interviews. My question: is it appropriate to bring the fact that I have already an offer from an agency 1 when talking to agency 2? I am very interested in the second agency but I’d like them to know that I can’t wait too long. Thoughts?

A question for recruiters.

And when I apologize since I actually have job to take care as well they just ghost me. Is this something that’s normal?
