From personal experience and from asking others when I had the same question - no.

Darn, it was a dream role. Anyone know what the average yield is from round to round in interviews.

Definitely no

Can someone explain how so many people have competing offers for negotiation? I keep hearing “don’t expect to have a strong case for negotiation unless you have a competing offer”. Wouldn’t that have to line up perfectly with you interviewing for multiple roles at the same time?? An offer has a quick expiration period... or do you negotiate with an expired offer you rejected within the past few weeks.

Applied to multiple positions (different roles) at PwC consulting on which I perfectly match and I received quick rejection emails (within few days /hours which I appreciate not like EY who takes months or Deloitte who completely ghosts you). All the other big 4 got back to me positively with interviews. It's not my resume, my cover letter or how I match to the roles. I don't understand what is happening.. I really would like to get at least a screening call from PwC ( I really like the company)

Guilty! Being the interviewee recently has taught me what I failed to do as an interviewer. 1Outline your hiring process/timeline. Simple but oft overlooked. Tell them how many people they’ll be meeting, when u aim to shortlist, when u aim to hire. Communicate- someone is probably intensely waiting for any word. They may miss other opportunities for u. 2 Closure! Surprising how many places don’t let u know when they’ve moved on from u! 3 Can u offer helpful advice for them? 4 Reply to all.
