Maybe you’re just the person they need to turn around the company and erase these allegations.
I'd be the marketing/PR/sponsorships guy for the locality so I would be the guy that corporate would get to cover it up
Leak all the dirty laundry to the press and get them fired
Doubt it would do any good until corporate leadership started caring about the animals instead of just caring about lining their pockets with more money
How do you know this is true until you interview and work there getting first hand experience? Don’t sell yourself short. You could save all these animals and be the human Simba.
Does anyone have experience or recommendations on asking for equity when negotiating your offer with a startup?
Hello, I’d like $xy,000 per year and 1.3% equity please.
If Mr. Wonderful has taught me anything, it’s that equity in a startup is a big nothingburger. Get royalties on every sale in perpetuity, IMO.
Anyone ever used a company to redo their resume? Been looking at some to spruce my resume and cover letter up.
A recruiter will do it for free.....and they'll actually know what works best for your field.
I had one recruiter hit me up about a job I went to interview for last week but never actually talked to one about doing any of that. I assume you just reach out to them and hire one? Never used one before.
We will give advice on what you can/should change to improve your resume, but good recruiters are not going to do it for you.
That's honestly better than paying someone who doesn't know your industry or the market.
The company I talked with about it basically explained how it’s an hour conversation with the writer who is supposedly industry specific. Then they send a draft and you can go back and forth as many times until your pleased with it. Just never heard of such a thing before I came across it and I’m horrible at writing them for the most part.
Ahhh. Sounds like they're gonna build it. The recruiters I've worked with have done edits here and there.
Correct. I would send the one I have for reference for dates and whatnot but they’d make a new one based off of the conversation.
How can I find a good recruiter/recruiting firm in my area? I know google, but most seem like shit.
Yes and when they're a good writer it can be worth the money. Much better than relying on a recruiter to help you look better before getting passed on to interviewers.
Go on LinkedIn and see who is recruiting for the jobs you want and connect with them
I’ve still never bought into the whole recruiter scene. Maybe it’s my industry (engineering, architecture, construction) but it seems to me the best way to keep options open is a clean self developed resume, good industry contacts and strong networking. Not sure what a recruiter adds to that
Depends on how competitive/sought after the industry is, the quality of the firm you're going for, and your position level. I would imagine if you're gunning for an Architectural Record top 50 firm, you might need a recruiter to break-in at mid- to senior-levels.
Why would you ignore a free resource that can help you get a better job? There's literally nothing to lose and everything to gain. You can have all those things you listed and still benefit from a good recruiter who knows about jobs that aren't posted yet and has connections with hiring managers to get your resume in front of decision makers
Recruiters are free? I thought they worked on commission.
Little known fact but most are volunteers who just do it for fun.
The company pays them, not the candidate
So wouldn’t that make my resume stronger if the company doesn’t have to pay a recruiter?
You don't use recruiters for jobs you already know about and have applied to
Actually sometimes you do. And sometimes that’s what gets you in the door.
If youve already applied then the recruiter, assuming we're talking 3rd party, won't get paid. It does make sense to contact them if they're working a job you want
Again, if you would not reach out that would be insanely stupid of you.
Edit; Comes across as harsh, didn't mean it that way. I just happen to have a friend who is highly connected in a certain industry and he literally knows EVERYONE. If you want a job in the field he is involved in and you do not use him you are at a disadvantage.
I actually have a recruiter friend who specializes in commercial construction and he makes a metric fuckton of dough while doing not a whole lot of work because he's made a bunch of contacts in the industry. There's definitely value there if you have the right recruiter.
My friend is the same. Great place to be if you can pull it off.
Thoughts on giving your boss a heads up you’re applying to a job under the same corporate umbrella, but not the same entity? Give them a heads up you applied or just don’t tell them?
What’s your relationship like? Is it a promotion? Generally, yes, it’s common courtesy; especially is boss can help by putting in a word.
I think it’s pretty good. Lateral move, but better for me long term
A lot of places will require you to report it to your current boss. There may even be an acknowledgement where you have to confirm your boss is aware. In any event, if you think it will help your chances at all (and not hurt your current job if you don’t get the new one), I would tell your boss.
They will find out one way or another so I'd rather they know up front than be blindsided. Plus it gives you ability to kiss some ass as they will want your managers take on your performance. "Blah blah blah, you're a great manager I really like working for you, just something that I feel can further my career."
Definitely give them a heads up so that they aren't surprised when the hiring manager or HR rep asks them about you.
kill your friend
give me his rolodex
i become new friend w/ $ and connections
