Applied an in-house job through the company (F500) website; someone from the legal department already passed along my resume to the hiring manager. Is there anything else I should do now to increase my chance other than just waiting?

Research the company (properly, so you know a decent amount about it); figure out answers to standard interview questions. Read something like “First 90 Days” to start thinking about what else you need to know about them (and ask at interview).

What a waste of your time. I work at a fortune 50 and would assume you know Google exists and how to find out that stuff. I’m much more interested in your past experience, substantive knowledge and desire to learn. Those things translate into whether you’re the right candidate, not silly questions. At best, it sounds like you had an inexperienced interviewer.

I mean - I hope that that interviewer knew what they were doing there (is that really the main criterion on which to base hiring decisions?). But yeah: worth (1) roughly knowing everything in the main sections on their website; (2) doing a news check for the past month/year to check for main events; and (3) having a rummage on LinkedIn to see whom you might both know/what connections there are/whom you know at the company. None of this should be decisive but all of it can be very very useful (and can inform next steps).

Agreed, this is a good thing to do

Hi folks, question on DEI Context: my company at the csuite level is full of white men (and 1 female as CHRO). I am in the DEI group that was formed to give more guidance to leadership. They are open but struggle to justify DEI (because all white, how can they know!) How do I get them to understand that 1) representation is important, 2) white men from varying white dominant country =\= diverse, 3) their white struggle easy vs. minority , 4) diversity hiring will not make talent pool worse?

Did not make Google hiring committee due to 2 borderline interviews.

Google requested a follow-up interview and the additional interviewer provided good feedback as well. I am not sure what's wrong with me, every time I interview with desi interviewer, I tend to screw things up.

I was fired last month after a short time at the company. I knew things weren't going well- it was a terrible culture fit & I was also planning my exit strategy. They wouldn't give me specific reasons other than to vaguely say it was performance related. I agree I made a few dumb mistakes (none of any dire consequence) but what kills me is that I tried really hard. I don't want to change careers but I have a deep seeded fear that no matter how hard I try, I will never be a "good attorney".

I recently went through an interview process for an investment banking role at a well respected mid market bank. I had two rounds of interviews, and the second round was with two VPs.

It’s been three weeks and I have heard nothing, even after 2 follow ups to HR. I saw on LinkedIn they hired 2 people. I assume I got rejected - thoughts? What do I do next?
