Wondering how internal applications work for others in the design world

My manager and their boss both encouraged my to apply for an open manager role on our team, but in order to proceed with the application process I have to first interview with a recruiter for the company. Is this standard or strange?

In some companies it’s standard. Hey if your boss and your manager are encouraging you should definitely try it out. You already have strong recommendations

I’m in EY Cyber (Canada) and I keep getting audit-like projects. Actually, projects that should be under the Tech Risk team and not cyber as it’s pure “technology risk” audits.(Think SOX, ITGC; OE…) - not even NIST CSF assessments, pure audit.
I have a technical background and was promised technical work when I applied and did the interview rounds.
Why is this happening? Anyone else having the same issue? Is it a big4 issue? I think I’ll quit. I hate audit.

Hello! Q on how to follow up w/ recruiter about a role. DM’d them about Founding Product Designer role, they “love my background” but looking for someone with actually 10 YOE (JD says 4+). It’s been a little over a mo. with role seemingly still open on their site.

I’ve since updated resume w/ + experience (isn’t close to 4 years tho) and exp is aligned. Looking at the rest of the JD and type of company, I know I can fill the role.
