It really has to be based on what level you are and why are you willing to move. If you are senior and looking to get settled it will be one type of story, if you young and want to see what’s out there in the world that will be another type of story. Remember , there’s a chance of connecting in being truthful. That will be your own unique story which no one can have. All the pitch around looking for challenging work is very common. Find your own story.

Came from industry and spent few years in consulting. Want to go back to industry desperately for work life balance and decent pay.. took a big decrease to try consulting. Best way to get back in industry is what now a days? Networking? How do I explain the 3 year gap in consulting appropriately to minimize negative perception? Really just want market value given experience and to not work on decks all day. All the interviews I’m getting are for other Mgmt consulting lead roles. TIA.

My GF is interviewing for a role she’s really excited about. She met with the hiring manager yesterday, and said she felt it went pretty well (the hiring manager told her after the interview that he has 4 other folks to interview and then he’ll get back to her). She sent an update/thank you note to the executive recruiter this morning and got this reply. Does the note portend good or bad news? She’s worked up like crazy.

I got to the final interview for a position that I felt very confident in and have had great communication with HR. But then I’ve received a generated system response (not HR) saying I was no longer being considered. I’ve reached out to HR thanking for their time and any feedback, but have had no response. I am now over analyzing the situation but I don’t know what I did wrong or why I wasn’t chosen. It’s not so much the job, but the lack of personal communication and being sent a robot response

How good are p2p interviewing sites (e.g pramp, interviewing.io) for practicing system design interviews? This is the interview format I’m least comfortable with so I definitely need the practice. My worry is if people giving the interviews are also inexperienced, doesn’t that defeat the purpose? Are there other alternatives (paid acceptable) that better mimic a real system design interview at FAANG if you’re in a time crunch?

I am at my wits end. 8 months of interviewing, recruiter after recruiter, rejection after rejection. I get tons of interviews (so my book and resume must be ok). I make it through to last rounds (so my interviewing must also meet the mark). I do test assignments and receive very positive feedback. Yet once again, today. Another... “we’re going with another candidate” email. Suggestions on what y’all do to not feel like giving up entirely? What do you tell yourselves to keep the faith?
