Could just me bad timing, honestly. With year-end coming up, a lot of companies are ramping down hiring. Keep trying and hopefully you’ll see a shift once the new year kicks off.

IMO, you have the right skillsets. Just double click on your experience related to IT be it DD, Carve out, PMI, etc.

Any feedback from interviewing?

I’ve asked but haven’t received any yet

Was in a similar boat about a year ago, coming from PwC and Adv, and it was far more difficult than expected. Just keep pushing and remember you still have top tier experience. One of them will hit!

I guess it's been almost 3 weeks since I had my system design interview with Amazon but still have not received any feedback - in spite of following up with recruiter. Most of the times - an excuse for delay but no clue if or when I'll get any update related to the result. To be honest - this is kinda making me feel - "hanging off the cliff". 😶 Anyone would like to share any thoughts/opinions ?
