In the same way that candidates like interviewing with multiple companies and having multiple offers to compare at once, companies like to have multiple candidates to compare at once. You might end up being a really strong candidate, but they just don't yet know without being able to compare you to others.

In house interviews: I finished a final round of interviews and was expecting a final decision after the interviews. Rather than yes or no, the recruiter told me that the feedback is positive but they need to interview one more candidate to compare since I am the first one interviewed. And they wanted to add one more meeting with their new team member starting next week. Is this common and what’s the best way to deal with this unexpected message? Thanks!
