Yeah, Ive never understood this. Ive been in roles of being a hiring manager a lot over the course of my 25+ career in digital. I always, always want ample time for questions from any candidate! You learn so much from it about the candidate, and it helps create a much more authentic dynamic in the interview process. Creating interview spaces where candidates feel like they are getting pressure tested to run a mental maze of overly scripted questions and " sell themselves" is awful IMO. Good luck in your search, I hope you start to get treated better and more like a human.

Agree!

Look, if you're interviewing right now, keep this in mind. Whenever you're put into into a high pressure sales situation, there's only 2 ways it goes: 1.) The sales person (in this case, the interviewer) is bad at their job. 2.) The deal on the table is bad, and they need you to not think about it too much. One of these two will be true. Neither of them help you evaluate whether a place is a good prospect for long-term employment. But they're not great signs.

Unfortunately you’re interviewing for one position. They have 8 people interviewing for the same position. You might be the best person for the job, but if another candidate wants it more? They might seem a little hungrier.

Good luck in your job hunt. Haha.

This is how I handled My 90 days Notice period and it worked for me. Step1: created a naukari account and resume with fake name. Step2: updated naukari as last working day is in a week (every week I update my LWD) Step3: Attend interviews and gain confidence. At first I got rejected in many interviews but I started to clear one by one after preparing previous interview questions. Step4: when I gained confidence, I resigned and started looking for job with real name. And cleared.

Has anyone out there changed jobs while pregnant? If so, please share any advice or recommendations. I am relatively new to D, and I hate it so much, I don’t think I can stick it out even for the mat leave. I’ve never been this miserable at a job, so I’m actively applying despite being in my 2nd trimester. I’m not sure how / when to tell recruiters that I’m pregnant. Also considering going back to a firm with better WLB that I turned down to see if they might still have me…

This is a confusing scenario so please help me here to understand! Most of the company has notice period as 90days but during interviews, they expect the candidate to join within 30 days. I know it's all based on requirement and criticality but even though the candidate is best suited and has knowledge, why can't they wait for him/her to join after 90 days? How do we convince the HR team to take you in and wait for 90 days?
