Help! I interviewed for a role last week Thursday, the interview went well and I was told I was a top candidate and would continue to another interview with the VP this week either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. I reached out Friday before five to send a thank you note and confirm my availability. I was then told she was waiting for a response on interview times. I reached out again today, hoping I would get a confirmation on interview, no response. Should I assume I’m being ghosted?
Has anyone had to do a case study interview? I’m being asked to essentially do a mock contract analysis. Any tips?

When a recruiter follows up on a job & tells you they’re still in the interview process for that role... is it exactly what it sounds like? Or could that be an underlying meaning for something else?
Do you guys ever just tell recruiters that the process is taking too long and withdraw your application? This guy made contact with me 2 weeks ago, said he’d get an interview set up with internal HR, then ghosted me, then appeared out of nowhere and told me I had a call with internal HR the next. There’s 4 more steps after this. It’s just too much. I know that’s a normal timeline, but the point is it just takes too long now.

Hello fishes, has it become a norm with Big4s to staff candidates on pure play IT Program Management roles in the name of Strategy. Anybody in a similar soup, where your core skills lie in Business Consulting, but you are being repeatedly put in IT implementations. Experiencing gaslighting almost every second day. I m more oriented towards business than IT, and hence have a different way of approaching things. Any suggestions how to handle things except switching. Joined 6 months ago.
