You could be screwed. Bad interviews are hard to walk back. I would write an email thank you/follow up. Mention the all nighter and that you weren’t at your best. Then briefly re-articulate some points in the discussion. Be brief. It might work.

My wife and I just experienced our second consecutive IVF miscarriage at 11 weeks. The first miscarriage came at 10 weeks.

We’re not sure what we should do at this point as my wife turns 42 this month. Has anyone else experienced late 1st trimester IVF miscarriages? What factored into your decision?

I've been at my current firm (litigation) for the past 4 or so months (first full-time job out of law school and now as an admitted attorney). It's...work. Good co-workers! But not the practice area I want to be in at all. Of course, I knew this going in and I knew what I was signing up for, but all this thinking about my future and where I really want to be (transactional, copyright, or entertainment industry broadly) has caused me great anxiety and stress over the past few weeks. Any advice?

Started a new job in recruitment half a year ago and I’m absolutely dreading my time thus far. My team is incredibly detached from each other and I get nitpicked for the stupidest of reasons (like why am I picking not to go to the office, even though we have a temporary full WFH policy), not to mention that my male coworkers get more praise for doing less than me. It’s incredibly demotivating and I went from wanting to do more to just doing the bare minimum. Is quitting the only option here?

Okay, I give up - what do recruiters/talent people even do? I’ve now been ghosted three times (after interviews, in one case after getting to a final round in a process that had SIX of them) in three months.

I found hiring managers to be much more responsive when I reach out to them, and damn, communicating with candidates is not even their job.

I’m just completely puzzled about how any of this works.

Also, apologies to the good recruiters out there, I’m sure you exist, I just haven’t met any
