Low key sad situation but I’m pretty extroverted and have been at my parents place since March and have no friends here, and I literally get in a better mood after doing expert interviews because I’m having a deep 1:1 conversation with someone 😐

First interview since 2014. 1st interview since having my kids, 20mo and 2mo. Bombed the technical portion. Feeling kind of stupid and out of practice and sad...cont.

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.

Anyone have helpful pointers on “lateral” interviews? I was invited to interview with a large firm. I say “lateral” because my current firm (second year associate) has less than 15 attorneys, and this firm has over 500. I’m worried that despite my relevant work experience, my answers won’t be as relatable given my firm background. Are there any standard lateral-type questions that I should prepare for?
