Do you find it normal for a company to take a month to get back to you even after asking for your interview availability twice? I’ve already done two rounds of interviews.

That’s a good point. I have probably been thinking there is less traveling with Covid but that makes sense.

I would not describe them as falling over themselves chasing you to hire you. However, depending on the firm they could be scrambling and just a bit of a mess right now (maybe they’re so busy they are too short staffed and things fall through) or they have lots of openings that people are applying to and inexperienced recruiters. If they’re otherwise a well oiled machine, I think it could be they’re interviewing others at the same time and maybe aren’t ready to commit to you yet.

They are a smaller operation and doing a significant amount of hiring right now. I probably was more thrown by being asked for availability twice and never having the next interview scheduled, but your thoughts are in line with what I had been thinking.

I’ve seen interview processes range from 1 week to 2 months. I wouldn’t stress about it til after 2 months. I’d reach out to touch base before then though.

Post interview process - When the recruiter mentions a base salary range based on their historical data for the position and on my years of experience and this aligns with what I see in Glassdoor too, is this essentially locked in where I can’t negotiate the base salary outside of that range? Example: Recruiter says base salary range is 85-90k, but my target is 100k base, will they only offer 90k base max and try to meet my target with sign on bonus, etc?

Honest question: when you see a job listing like so, is your reaction... A. Good for them insisting on BIPOC; this industry needs more diversity & hiring the same middle aged white folks doesn't cut it anymore. or B. YES, every agency/brand should champion diversity but is it fair, right or even "legal" to overtly dissuade white people from applying? Can't they just "hire the best candidate" regardless of race/gender/etc? I get B but I'm team A because the 2nd ? in B hasn't exactly..worked.
