    Yes. Doesn’t need to be hand written or anything like people used to advise, but an email afterward thanking interviewers for their time, reinforcing your interest in the role, and also how your skill set aligns with the desired skill set post interview is never a bad thing.

    I think the rule of thumb relates more to your transparency amongst recruiters than it does to the number of recruiters in total. You want to avoid having 2 or more recruiters reach out to the same company on your behalf. So as long as you keep them all apprised of the specifics regarding which other companies another recruiter has reached out to on your behalf, you should be fine. The flip side is that when you tell one recruiter you're also working with another, they lose incentive/motivation to find you the perfect job.

    Yeah, I have typically always shot a quick email stating those items you mentioned. I forgot yesterday until last night, which made me think of if it was still a thing or not. Went ahead and shot a few emails off this morning. Now the waiting game...

    Mentioned it earlier in this thread but my old boss is trying to recruit me to a competitor. Told him I wasn’t interested because I didn’t want to move to Louisville.

    He texted me yesterday saying they’re exploring opening an office where I live and they’re trying to break more into business segment I work in

    Anybody ever seen their employment/income history through the The Work Number? I guess all the information comes from Equifax, but it showed every job title, hours worked, paycheck, bonuses, etc. dating all the way back to high school. Kind of scary TBH.

    I haven't seen it, but I know the product pretty well. That's the future for Equifax.

    Consumer data is like gold now. The bureaus have everything. Literally everything. Bank account balance, spending habits (to a certain degree), and whatever is on social media (no matter the privacy settings) is not private.

    If you’re involved in manufacturing, my advice as a recruiter would be to do as much as you can to make yourself knowledgeable on Industry 4.0/SMART Factory/I-IoT. If you can find a role where you are implementing the concepts in your facilities, then you’re a hot ticket right now. It’s the future of the industry.

    Better play is likely age discrimination since he is 60+. The company will likely do the math on court costs and offer him a year of salary. We had to pay this dog shit HR VP $165k because he got fired for being incompetent but claimed age discrimination and our GC told us we'd save money paying him to go away

    Google search The Work Number > Employee > Log In > Employee > and then type in your current employer code. I think you can find those online if your employer is big enough.

    So at my wife’s work last week (elementary school), a coworker went off the rails, yelling and cussing people out (including her) then threatened to “put her foot up her ass”. She didn’t want to report to HR, even though I said she should. Then, find out this week the same lady is posting shit on FB everybody about choking out coworkers, bitchslapping coworkers, etc etc. Making the posts during working hours no less. Basically every time anybody tells her anything, she threatens to choke them out 5 mins later on FB. Report to HR? Yay or nay?

    I started an internship in my field the summer before my senior year of college. Worked it through my senior year expecting to be full time after graduating. Graduated and was told that they can’t make me full time right now but will by end of the summer. This was still in the years close to the recession and I was getting $40k as an intern so I accepted it and just stayed as an intern. Came into work one morning and overheard my boss in his office talking about me and how he’s trying to keep me on as an intern because of what good work he can get out of me for so cheap. I left before lunch and had another full time position across town within two weeks.

    The one I just left in January. It's a long story. I quit a job I took at Kroger right after I graduated college but that was basically a holdover job to pay bills until I got something in the career I wanted to pursue. Only two jobs I ever quit.

    First FT job out of college. Moved to Sourh GA where I knew no one. Was there almost 4 years, but between a falling out I had with a coworker and the job being kinda easy and in a specialized area I wanted to get out and broaden my background.

    Still at second job/company 7 years later. Have moved once within that company and was essentially my own boss after 2.5 years there.

    I’ve worked for 3 orgs in almost 8 years in the work force. I never left one because I was unhappy. Left for a better opportunity. Been lucky in that arena. I’m now sort of at the top and my next job will be more on my terms.

    I quit my first real job, that was actually a career, after 6 years in 2018 and am on my third since then. I struggle to motivate myself as I’ve taken a pay cut and gone to a smaller company, though still in the same industry. I almost think I’d be better off to switch entirely to something new, I view what I’ve done as moving from a rotational NFL player to a strength coach in the AAF.

    I still look and apply for jobs but my resume is getting jumbled with three different employers last year.

    To be completely transparent, you should really be reaching out to recruiters if you are looking for a change at this point. The 6 years looks great (average tenure in today’s workforce is 2-3 years), but 3 different jobs in essentially less than 18 months is going to raise red flags.

    One of the good things about (worthwhile) recruiters is they have a relationship with their clients. Basically, they’re able to say something like, “Look, I know this guy’s recent job history raises some red flags, but here are the reasons...”

    My clients will talk to candidates I vouch for who they would never even take a second glance at on a site like Indeed. It’s one of the reasons they pay me.

    Absolutely explainable. That is why a recruiter is a resource to someone in your situation.

    Submit an app on a job site, and the hiring manager discards your resume for presumed job hopping without explanation.

    Working with a recruiter who is good at his/her job means there are explanations available to the hiring manager before objections can be raised.

    Yeah, if things continue like they are for me personally then I might be having to leave two jobs after 3 yrs at each one, which I know doesn't look great. But one involved my business being bought/sold and given then options of remain in current position and current location and that's my ceiling, moving to Minnesota, or finding a new job. I choose the new job. This next move would be because I have a fiance at that point and am moving to be with her.

    Reasonable reasons, but need to get past that first line of people looking.

    How would one reach out to a recruiter? How do I even find one? Recruiters didn't exist for my previous career.
