Why they post a job in indeed or Glassdoor and then finally hire a random cousin or a niece?

Legally they have to in some places.


job boards are a legal formality to mask nepo hires and internal candidates.


Because they have to legally.


A formality...., posting, interviewing, selection process overall is a way to get rid of legal issues. Sometimes you see this ads for quite some time. The entire world does that, does not mean is ethically correct, still hapoens...


I was a contractor up for an internal role at an org. They told me they had to legally post the job and interview other candidates.

Going through the legal motions.

I recently got a job offer from a company I used to work for that has a great work/life balance and culture but has a slower track to get promoted. My current employer has a not great work/life balance but it’s much easier to get promoted.

Hi! I started at a new company 2 months ago and while I’m really enjoying my job so far, I’m having a hard time gauging whether or not I’m doing a “good job.” My role seems to be always evolving, which is fine and I actually enjoy being a support to the greater marketing team, but I feel like I need better defined targets to make sure I’m meeting expectations. Also, when I ask my boss what they’d like to see, I don’t ever get a clear answer. (Cont’d in comments)


I was recently promoted, and now part of my team report to me. I'm now able to see their pay rates and I am honestly so disappointed in the company. Especially since we just gave annual raises in Feb, plus we can all see where the money is going and it's not to the employees. Makes me sick


Hello all, I have offers from both EXL and Clairvoyant (acquired recently by EXL). I was wondering if there would be any issue if I choose one over the other? Leaning towards Clairvoyant a bit because of the discussion with HR. Also EXL HR is saying that they will issue laptop after joining. Is this normal?

Designers! How often do you buy a new computer? Even if work provides one, how many years should one last?


I started a new job a month ago and I hate it! I hate the culture (there is no culture) the way that they communicate (no meetings everything in slack) and the way that they work (alone) It feels pretty much like I am freelancing and I thrive in collaborative environment. I have never felt this isolated in my whole life. It sucks.
Has anyone been in that situation? If I look for another job, should I remove that experience from my linked in? Or should I talk about that if I get interviews?


*recent graduate* Whenever I ask an employer why I didn’t get the job or get to the second step in the interview process, they never respond. So, I’m assuming my lack of experience (I never did an internship in school🤦‍♀️ ) or portfolio is the problem.


(1/2) Did she steal my work? I was a creative designer for an e-comm company last year. While I was there I hand drew a digital illustration for a package design assignment. They ended up repurposing it for a print on a dress. I haven’t added it to my portfolio yet, but I just came across my illustration on a portfolio. The girl who replaced me after I quit took my line work from the illustration and slapped their logo in the middle and put it on her portfolio as her work for the brand.
