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

Sorry not sure where to post this but I don’t really have anyone that I can talk to about this.

Hi All!
This is my first post in Fishbowl, I'm looking for some genuine guidance on below query.

I have a total of 8.1 yrs of development experience in Java, Bigdata and Hadoop (new to it).
I got an offer from Capgemini for Manager/C2 designation with a CTC of 24 LPA. I just wanted to know the roles and responsibilities at this designation.
Will it be a profile shift from technical to managerial position or is just a designation (as per HR) the actual job would be to lead/guide any team?
Thanks
