Definitely not. only let them know when you put your two weeks in

I believe this is only ok at Tier 1 and Tier 2 firms because they have official programs that help you find an exit by connecting you to the right people and allowing you to roll of to focus on interviewing.

It really comes down to your personal relationships with the team members

Wow no pls.

Not okay at any tier in reality (maybe some teams are an exception).

Seriously, don't say a word to anyone until you have an offer in hand, good way to get yourself boned by your leadership.

Hey Mates I'm working in pretty good fintech firm. I'm in my 30s with 2 kids and they are calling everyone to office by January I want remote job and would never want to live in any city again. Wondering which route to opt? 1. Start investing in open source and build a profile, find freelance jobs on upwork/Fiverr Or 2. Start giving interviews in remote jobs. FYI I'm terrible at interviews and spoken communications. Please provide your inputs. I want to work remote with good pay.

I am in a weird situation. What should I do? I interviewed Deloitte Consulting and heard the good news. But the recruiter working for my target practice group told me that they couldn't extend an offer because I just finished my master-degree study so I would have to go through Deloitte's campus hiring team. However, I haven't heard from the campus hiring team for 2 weeks and the campus recruiter is not responding. What should I do? Am I done?

In house interviews: I finished a final round of interviews and was expecting a final decision after the interviews. Rather than yes or no, the recruiter told me that the feedback is positive but they need to interview one more candidate to compare since I am the first one interviewed. And they wanted to add one more meeting with their new team member starting next week. Is this common and what’s the best way to deal with this unexpected message? Thanks!
