4 months, 7 interviews, all done and dusted, numerous congratulations mails and messages and now they say they can’t offer the job.

Weird flex, but not okay 🤬

IBM, you shithole.

Be happy this happened. This place is a sinking ship with no life boats in sight. Morale is horrible, projects aren’t selling, and anxiety about layoffs never goes away

Sounds about right

Sounds like something IBM would do. I’ve heard multiple stories of employees that were RIF’d and then called 6 months later to come back just because enough projects landed

It’s a sign you didn’t want the job. Any company that mass lays off recent grads 6-12 months after starting, you want no part of

in that way no one should work for PwC either.

Several of my friends went through the same thing.
People there are also worried about layoffs and have a hard time getting staffed all the time.
It's a circus there.

I’ve been interviewing for roles for about 8 weeks. I’ve probably had about 20 “initial conversations” & have got to the final round of approx 6 roles - most of which have been 5-6 interviews long, with take home assessments or presentations. It’s been exhausting. After final round, they’ve all gone with other candidates. I’m now looking at potentially doing some interview training as I feel like I must be doing something wrong at this final stage. Has anyone done this before & can recommend?

So I’m currently in the middle of the interview process at a large corp (just completed the HR pre-screen and video interview), and the recruiter just emailed me asking me to complete a formal employment application. My question is: for the Work History section that asks you to list all positions you’ve held for the past 10 years, should I include part-time positions and gig/IC work that I did in the past but isn’t relevant to the job?

P.S. I didn’t include these PT/gig jobs on my resume.
