Would you all think anything odd of your interviewee if they were to look up your profile on LinkedIn ahead of an interview?
Interviewed by Boeing chennai. Got selected. Sent documents for offer. Initial stage of interview we spoke about budget and agreed. After 3 weeks, so many remainder calls and mails, finally they have responded like budget is problem and we are dropping your candidature. If they are not fine with budget, initial stage itself they could drop. But time wasted.

Hi everyone! Anyone from Accenture? Got my interview scheduled for the next week Accenture the Netherlands, Industry X.0.
I accepted an offer to join a national firm after graduating this summer. The pay is decent, and I am relatively happy so far (it’s only been a month since I joined). Today I received an email from a bigger, more prestigious firm I applied to months ago. They’re asking if I am still looking for an Associate role. I would like to interview with them to see what they have to offer. Would that be considered ‘disloyal’ towards my current firm that I just joined a month ago?

Have an interview with a company I really want to work for tomorrow. My last job I was laid off b/c of an acquisition&recently accepted a job at a diff company b/c I couldnt afford not to. I got this invite shortly after. The place I’m interviewing at the job wouldn’t start til next year. I dont want to seem like a job hopper. Do i tell them I’m at a new role or just not bring it up? The acquisition was public so they can see Im no longer employed with the most recent work history on my resume
How can I start learning about embedded programming? I was turned down from a great job because my experience is all windows server, they were looking for embedded Linux. I mentioned my raspberry pi projects in the interview, what else can I look into?
At my first agency job, I was
- Paid pennies to work 55 to 100 hour weeks.
- Bullied by senior members of staff about my appearance and poor quality clothing. (The best I could afford on what they were paying me.)
- Looked down on and generally disrespected constantly.
- Falsely accused of theft with no evidence.
- Ordered to lie about my religion.
- Unfairly dismissed one week before the one year mark, where I'd have grounds to take them to a tribunal.

Does anyone else experience this cycle of work-related trauma? How are you managing it?

Raise chat! I am approaching 1 year with my company and am unsure of how to approach my CEO when asking for a raise. When I first came on, I was given a 5% raise after 3 months. I was promoted at 5 months but just in title, and a lot of responsibility. I believe I am long overdue for a salary increase and the overall cost of living is insane. I would like to ask for something closer to 15% but I’m not sure if that’s appropriate. Any advise?

Is it common for companies to not disclose pay grades?
I started a new job last month and the position title is very vague/fluid and they wanted someone with a master’s degree, but they got me instead who has two bachelor’s degrees and seven years of experience in my field of digital marketing.
I asked my managers if I could receive my pay grade information to keep with my own personal records and they said, “In the interest of confidentiality we cannot share that”.

Ladies in leadership - This is a critical reminder: When a male colleague asks you for “help” with an administrative task, refer him to his executive assistant.

But I’m hoping that the reasons may be occurring to you as you’re reading this. You’re welcome!

I quit my job because my manager (CEO) was extremely toxic. I wasn’t the only one who quit for that reason either. What’s the best professional response for “I see there’s a gap in your resume. Why did you leave your last role?”
This is not odd and in fact is the smart thing to do. You want to understand this person’s career path, tenure at the company, their title and responsibilities, be able to ask better questions of them
Overthinking. LinkedIn is a platform for professionals looking to network and learn more about companies, roles, etc. The interviewee probably wanted to do some research on you in hopes of using it as a talking point in the interview.
I think of candidates favorably when they do this. It shows they spent time preparing for the interview and researching at least me and likely the company as well. These candidates tend to come in with better, more specific questions about the role and what I’m looking for as a manager.
No. Also change your search settings to private if you’re worried about this. Then they won’t know. Good luck on the interview!
Thank you— for the luck and the tip!
As an interviewer, you pretty much expect people to look you up on LinkedIn, but try and do it a couple of days before the interview, rather than be a last-minute Larry! Also, do some research on the firm you are applying to. Always shocks me when an interviewee hasn't bothered to do basic research - seems a bit rude!
You absolutely should do this. You can also change your own privacy settings so it doesn’t tell anyone whose profile you are viewing.
No, I would be unpleasantly surprised if they didn’t. Shows their curiosity, ability to research and be proactive.
Not odd at all!
Not at all! I’ve done it myself and think that most people would appreciate it because it shows you are doing your research. Good luck!
Looking up is fine but don’t try to connect with the person until AFTER you’ve met
No -- I wouldn't think it odd. I think it's just someone trying to be well prepared. Type A personality.
No, this is quite common. It's likely they are trying to prepare for the interview.
I know a hiring manager who would rule out candidates who didn’t look him up before the interview!
