Had 4 rounds of interviews got grilled on biz dev, relationship building, capabilities for a new team and even outlined milestones for a potential project and then 2 wks later, no offer. I feel used.

So when you are on the other side and need to find a person to build your department, you’ll just interview one candidate at a time to be nice to the candidate, and then, if they are not right, spend weeks interviewing another single person, and so on?

That makes sense.

Ugh

exact same boat, ugh

@Consultant 1, I went with a recruiter and their response was they don’t think I can build a department when I’ve done that in the past and talked about it. Then the recruiter admitted that they say for every candidate they get to at this stage.

They all took notes as I was talking so I thought it was a sure thing.

Interviewing at two companies. Company A I’m already at the Partner interview next week. Company B first interview is next week. Problem is company B is totally my preference.

I don’t want to resign for a competitor only to join a different firm in the end - feels like it makes me look confused and unreliable.

I have been working at the same small firm for almost 9 years. If I were to interview elsewhere and reach the offer stage, I don't know what I can do about providing references.

Any suggestions - thoughts? Thank you so much!
