When we get calls from hr, why do they ask that you hold a offer? In my case, i said that yes i do hold one offer and thats it they will never reach me out again.. Is this same to all of you guys?

I believe if they ask if you have a current offer it's because the people they are looking to hire, they need to be reliable and available at all times, otherwise, they would be a leave risk. I am against this practice, as people usually apply to more than one position, but it can happen.

Could you please illustrate" im against this practice "

At the peak of attrition it should not be the case. They ask to make sure if they have the required budget for that role.

They ask so that they won't waste their and your time if they can't match/exceed ur expectations. If they are very well in your budget interviews get scheduled

My manager constantly cuts people off. I’ve started using the same rules for her and cutting her off when she’s rambling. I think I need a long vacation or something. It’s getting a lot more difficult for me to honor these useless titles. If I interacted with her in any other environment I would not allow her to constantly cut me off. I don’t understand why she thinks it’s okay just because of her position. And she doesn’t do it to her higher ups. She’s just disrespectful. I’m tired, y’all. 😢

Hi Fishes,

I have close to 2 years of experience in web analytics and I have an offer in hand to work in the same domain. (Offer from a Big 4 and relocation)

I don't think I would want a career in this as I feel it would require coding at some point which I don't want to.

On the other hand, I'm looking to switch my domain into Product Management.. currently don't have any offer or experience related to PM role.

I'm confused if should I go with the offer in hand or wait till I get a PM role.
