I have been looking for new roles in Talent Acquisition for four months with no luck. I've applied to over 150 jobs via job boards - zero responses there (except the occasional automated rejection letter).
I've reached out to my entire extensive network - either their places aren't hiring, or I'm being passed over in favor of even stronger connections (for example, yesterday I was told by a small IB that I "interviewed well" but that the person in charge of hiring was moving forward with two former colleagues instead).
So... I'm trying to figure out if there's something else I can be considered for job-wise that would use my recruiting skills. It cannot be sales or commission-based, and I would prefer hybrid over remote. I do not believe I am well-suited to strict HR roles, either. Obviously, I cannot take a huge salary decrease. Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions? I'm based in NYC if that helps.

Would like to hear feedback:
I have a colleague overstepping, and it's very stressful.
I direct a large team of product owners. The colleague who is not working collaboratively is relatively new to this field, but not the company.
I can sense that she is insecure, and I know she's trying to show people she can lead new things, but -- she is trying to direct and take credit for work that one of my product teams is fully responsible for.
It's confusing teams outside of our department, as they know that I oversee all of these product teams, and it's not helping how people view her.
I am senior than her, and I want her to understand that collaboration is much better than competition.
I've set up one to one meetings with her, and she either does not accept them or when we've met, she continuously speaks -- even when I try to interject.
How do I have her realize, that she is overstepping and that collaboration is the way to success -- without directly saying "you are overstepping!"?

For all the accountants out there.
Did you ever find it difficult to determine or justify the final costs that are posted to your p&ls.
I know that the costs should be determined by using the advise of our clients and senior management.
However, some costs were incorrectly calculated from prior months. This has resulted in the wrong accruals/posting repeatedly.
How does one feel comfortable in determining and confirming the correct costs in the p&l.
Should the determination of costs /correction of entries occur between teams or does one individual make a decision.
Unfortunately Ive never been involved in the budgeting and feel like I'm imposing if I ask for the budget.

Has anyone continued the interview process but halfway through realized the job wasn't for them and decided to remove themselves from the candidate pool or did you complete the process and decline their offer?
For full context, I was previously in a remote role for almost 3yrs, but unfortunately got laid off in January. Being a single parent of 3 kiddos, remote work has allowed me to not only successfully parent but truly have the lifestyle I want and need. I thought I'd be able to entertain the idea of a hybrid role but just the thought of explaining to a manager that I need to leave at 3:30 to pick up my kids from school fills me with dread not to mention anxiety. I've been in far too many positions where I've had to leave because of a sick child, behavior issues at school etc....and made to feel inadequate not to mention guilty for even asking.
I'm grateful to have gotten this far in the interview process and know in this tough market it may take me longer to find the role that fits me. But I'm willing to gamble and wait for the sake of my happiness. Thanks for reading! :-)

How soon after starting a new job would you update your LinkedIn page?
I love my job but my boss is the only negative and if things don't change I will likely need to find new employment. This is my first job in several years. I just reentered the workforce after taking leave.
