After 3 months of applying I some how got an interview with a well known growing tech start up! Interviewed and got an offer this week. Unfortunately the offer is lower than my current comp with 1 yoe but it gets me out of tech consulting/compliance and into a pretty interesting product facing role! A bit sad about a lower comp but also pretty pumped about pivoting career paths so early and getting to work in product! Hope this “success” helps motivate some of y’all who might feel down!

Feeling sad as I thought the interview went very well as the interviewers said I did a good job in cases etc and everyone gave me their contact info without me asking but then rejection:(

If you say something bad about someone applying for a job, that’s wrong. Unless they were blatantly insane or harmful. Let people try to find happiness. Happened to my friend and it’s sad.
