You’re getting in your head. It’s not that serious. They probably had scheduling conflicts

Don’t worry about the timing. If you are applying for a consulting position, then you will be hired independently of other candidates being hired the week before or not. What I mean is that this is not a recruitment process for one single specific position.

Don’t read too much into it. Best thing you can do is focus on yourself and crush your interview. I know with campus recruiting they had batches of candidates over 2 weeks. Whether you interviewed one week or another did not influence your offer decision. It’s probably similar to that for EH.

Interviewers are partners with very demanding clients. They don't own their time. Don't over think this; use the extra time to prepare and reflect

Tomorrow will be my first day at Boston Consulting Group and I really look forward to it.

At the end of the day it’s just a job, but I just want to encourage everyone: stick to your goals,do the hard work and it will pay off

Hi guys, I had my technical round with TCS yesterday. It went on for 45 mins and I had answered close to 17 of the 20 questions that were asked to me. The interviewer also gave a positive kind of response stating that you will have a managerial round after this and then HR. But nothing has happened after that. I tried emailing the HR who had arranged for my interview but I did not receive a response. Any idea about the TCS hiring process or how else can I reach them to kno the results ?
