Be on time

Practice your answers to common questions out loud, and time yourself to stay in the 1-2 minute sweet spot if you tend to ramble (like me). Like UBS 1 said, you’re selling yourself, so frame your answers to show them why you’re a great fit. Also helps to be friendly and try to connect with the individuals interviewing you—show them why they would enjoy working with you for 40-100 hours every week.

My interview got over on June 29th right after the interview the recruiter called me and told I’m selected and they will be sending the offer letter. He mentioned there will be a delay in releasing the offer letter since merging is happening right now. few days back I sent a mail to HR.. but no reply. and after that I received a mail stating they are no longer considering me for this position. Does this happen to anyone else ?

Got an offer for the same total comp, but MAYBE less stressful than my current job (fewer deadlines but similar hours due to larger deal size/more complex and less volume; vacation time to be respected) with maybe less upside potential. Been at my current job for a year, it’s bearable but I am not happy (previous jobs were mostly neutral). When the (new company) HR said what I’m feeling is called being burnt out I almost cried. Understand it’s personal choice, which would you choose?
