Had a final interview Thursday and was just told by the recruiter, they will follow up in 1-3 weeks in regards to my candidacy. Good/bad sign? Or not worth worrying about?

Don’t worry either way, likely means they have other people in the process before making a decision.

Sounds like they are finishing up interviews with other candidates, hence the long window.

You are possibly the rebound candidate!

If you take it in right spirit and upskill you will easily find a good position

funny

Also, the final interview was a super day format. Not sure if that affects the situation

That is boiler plate language designed to be ambiguous. You’re thinking too hard about it

I assume you sent thoughtful thank you notes. Follow up weekly with your HR contact to show interest. At this point it could be a luck. It often boils down to fit, likability and relatabilty. If you came through as a referral and someone can push your candadicy from inside, you may have an edge. Cross your fingers.

Yeah I sent genuine thank you notes. For what it’s worth, I thought I hit the nail on the head in regards to fit, likability, and relatability. I’m not a local candidate which could raise a red flag but the position is with a big bank so I’m not sure how particular they are on current location.

Is this an industry role, or with another consulting firm? That makes a difference. If industry, then higher chance they have someone else in mind already and you may be the backup candidate. If consulting, most likely they have other candidates still pending to interview and just have no clue yet what they will decide.

I didn’t send a thank you email following a third interview on Monday, because up until that point, everything had been so quick and I thought the interview went so great, that I would hear back quickly. It’s now Friday and no word. Did I just screw myself out of my dream job?

Does anybody have a view on the growth path / trajectory for a Strategy and Ops Lead at Google? I didn't get a very clear sense in my interviews, esp. because it feels like there is 1 manager for the team and so there is not a lot of scope for organic upward movement. Is it only through lateral moves within the org? You get enough tenure for the next role then find an opp to switch?

How do I answer “why are you leaving Deloitte” in an interview without trashing my current job? The truth is that Deloitte has low pay, uninteresting work, and extremely slow career progression with little opportunity to differentiate oneself from peers, so I am looking at other firms which don’t have those issues.
