How do people who are spouses/caretakers/parents find time to prep for interviews? Interview processes have gotten so extreme over the past decade that it takes a tremendous amount of time to prepare, and for what result? Companies still mishire all the time and attrition is high. I’m a caretaker and intimidated by preparing for interviews because of the little time I have to myself. It doesn’t mean I can’t do a job just because I don’t have time to LC or case interview prep.

To everyone interviewing, to hopefully calm some nerves: The process is really long. Not hearing back from the recruiter for a few days, or even weeks, is completely normal. There can be multiple weeks between rounds and then multiple weeks before you get feedback. Don’t think too much into it. There is no indication of positive or negative by no response. On average it takes 3+ months, and usually 2+ application attempts, to get hired. Good luck! 🍀
