Agreed with SA 1. As long as it’s in writing and you don’t have anything that would flag on a background check you are good to go.

Thanks all! I will talk with my counselor to begin the two weeks.

EY had done its check when you joined. Should be in the clear. Congradulations.

Hi everyone. I interviewed for a sales role at Amazon. I was told the role was an L6 and I can stay based in Chicago. Well, the recruiter emailed me today saying the hiring team felt I was better suited for an L5 role (estimated total comp is $140K-$150K) and I would have to move to Seattle. They'll send me an offer if that works. Any advice or opinions on how to negotiate? For context, I gave a desired salary range of $280K-$310K since this was an L6 role, and my current TC at P&G is $200K.

So I applied to Accenture M&A for manager level. I had 2.5 years at D doing M&A as SC, plus 2.5 years prior in an ops consulting role. Spent last 4.5 years in Corp strategy (no deals though) team overseas. Had two great interviews with SMs. 2nd one spent his time convincing me to not try for SM and stick to M. Anyways, after MD interview I hear back they want to offer me C level. I told them no, and to check if they would reconsider. WTF happened?Accenture

Rant: I interviewed at a mid size firm for Senior Tax Associate role and went really well. Partner calls after a couple days to say they want to offer me a job and asked me if I wanted senior 1 or 2. I said senior 2 since I have a years experience as a senior and she was okay with it and discussed salary. She said she will think about the final offer and let me know. A week later she comes back to tell me that my small firm experience probably won’t help much and it would be difficult for me...

Question mainly for those who made the move from Agency to Client roles. How did you initially make the switch: - recruiter/headhunter - job aggregator site such as LinkedIn or Indeed - specific specialist site (would love to know details) - found and applied for role directly on company site - through personal/professional connection - other (details, if you'd be so kind)
