2 years of experience at BCG post-undergrad. Interviewed for the biz ops team and was told they thought I was a great fit for google, but just didn’t have enough tech experience at this time. I believe this was because I struggled in one of my case interviews. What other roles could I look at at google with my experience level?

Something similar happened to me. 3 YOE and got to the final round 3 times at google last year but always lost out to someone with more experience or with tech experience (this was when I was still in consulting). You just have to keep an eye out for roles with that 2-4 YOE benchmark. Roles <4 YOE are pretty rare so you just have to check the careers site religiously. Since not all of them will be BizOps or s&o related.

Was your case general tech-based? Or do you think they were concerned with your answers about tech?

Don’t think it was related to my answers about tech - the case I struggled on was about the ad payment mechanisms. I just didn’t have a ton of knowledge on it beforehand so it made it more difficult for me to structure my approach to the problem. Taking the time to read up on it more now!

As the person above said....roles with your experience are slim. Try applying for a similar role in a different area. Either that or move to a more tech company like slalom and round out your gaps

Hi is it good to say that I already have an offer letter of one company(X) to another company(Y) to get better offer, I just got scolded by HR for this. also I lost the opportunity in Y. HR scolded me regarding trust issues, time taken to interview a candidate, you will go and come back again to negotiate and what not, all I wanted to was just to improve my current offer. Is it ethically wrong, or we should never share what offer we have to anyone. I feel sad that I just lost an opportunity

Might be off topic, but guys please, take care of your health. I've been rejected by all companies in the last 2 months. I had my Walmart interview today and it went really well. And guess what?

It's important to push yourself to achieve your goals, but don't forget to "Live" in the process.

I want to provide some perspective as a hiring manager. Sometimes I hit it off with a candidate like I want to be best friends. But that doesn’t mean they’re right for my open role. Often it’s because they have too much/too little experience. So the next time you have an amazing interview and then you don’t get the job, know that there are a host of potential reasons and it doesn’t mean you said anything wrong. Like an amazing actor who just isn’t the best fit for a character in a movie.
