WWYD if job option #2 makes you an offer, but dream job #1 is dragging their feet/let you know it might be up to three months before an offer is given; also dream job’s interview feedback was great.

I did this... I called job #1 and said that I had an offer from job #2, and it would be a dream to work for #1... could they make me an offer too? And FYI, this is how much #2 offered...

And they did — recruiter had to go back and talk to them, but they offered more and gave a start date a month later.

Take #2 and bolt if #1 calls back w a great offer. #2 could lay you off if it made sense for their books so... just do it. Congrats on having good problems.

Job 2. Job 1 may never happen. And IF it does and IF they come back to you and IF you don’t like job 2, then take it

How do you all deal with the guilt of leaving a comany/ team? I have been working at Microsoft for 1 year now, and seriously considering moving. I find the code base to be very legacy and I mostly work on obscure bugs that I spend so much time on, mostly due to navigating this large code base and not having much docs to refer to. Hence I find the job slightly unsatisfying, and that I could learn more elsewhere. However, I love the wlb, the team and company culture. The guilt stops my applying.

Hello Everyone,

I'm currently a civil design engineer, and trying to switch to real estate as a Program Manager. I have an interview in a week where they tell me I will have to work on ( for about 3-4 hours ) on an operational case study.

The job is located in Paris and the job is in French .

Does anyone here have any case studies in Real estate that they can share ? and if they're from France, that would be even better.

Thank you in advance !

What is the application process for a Associate Data Scientist role ?

How should I approach this situation? Several other companies I’m interviewing with is reaching final rounds, but tbh I’m not as interested in those roles. Plus I’m getting antsy being unemployed for several weeks since I was laid off.
