Welcome to Paychecks & Balances first Question and Answer session. This week we tackle two listener questions:
- In the middle of a job search (looking for more money & more responsibility) and just found out that my dad is sick. I’ll probably need to travel often to help with doctor’s visits/treatment. Should I put my search on hold/decline offers or take the job and then slowly reveal my situation?
- Hi, I work in insurance. I really like insurance, but I don’t really like the culture of the insurance industry. For this reason, I’m interested in possibly pursuing opportunities at insurance start-ups. There’s one in particular that I’m interested in. My question is: how does startup recruiting work, and how is it different than recruiting at more mature companies. Also, given the info I’ve shared so far, how would you go about starting a conversation with the recruiting function at the startup I’ve described?
