If you’re interviewing with multiple firms, it’s going to leak, especially if multiple headhunters are involved. If with one firm, insist on doing the most senior interviews first, ideally in one day. Best way to do it anyway. If they say yes, you meet future peers and negotiate terms in parallel but you already know it’s probably a yes.

How do you approach an interview with your potential direct report where YOU are the one being interviewed? Some background: I’m 34 with 10+years experience but look like I’m in my mid-20s and have a pretty youthful (but not immature/ditzy) speaking voice. The potential direct report is male and looks like he’s probably in his mid to late 20s. Last time I was in this situation, the agency passed because they wanted someone with “more experience.”

Hi.. I Appeared for an interview for RPA - Automation Anywhere. I didn't got any response after the interview. Then when I reached hiring manager through LinkedIn I got to know I cleared all the rounds but my expected cts is high so they might have rejected. First thing is I never said what I am expecting . And I clearly told In managerial round that I am open for salary discussion. But no one responded. Will I get the call back in time? Or I just leave it and go ahead with other companies?
