Had all my interviews, met the recruiter who shared the “great feedback from everyone” and even some potential numbers for the offer last Wednesday only to let me know today it came down to the “nitty gritty” and they weren’t moving forward with me. Pretty upset but figured it’s because they have more years exp or a Masters and I don’t. Any other thoughts? Recruiter really got my hopes up

I’m sorry to hear that OP! Make sure to ask the recruiter if there are other open roles you may be considered for.

Yeah for sure, he said to not only check minimum but “preferred” qualifications on other roles. Felt like it was a hint because they all had masters degrees listed under preferred

likehelpful

It’s rare that a candidate is rejected because he has less years of experience or no masters, because this things are discussed beforehand. Also, there is always an option on downgrading the level.

I have seen that there are few instances where all rounds were went good but HC didn’t liked the quality of answers from candidate. So, you must ask what was the exact HC decision to better understand.

likehelpful

Interesting, I’ll email the recruiter and see what he can share. This was for the xWS team so not sure if things are different over there. Do you not think they’d compare my exp/degrees with other candidates? I was pretty surprised to get so hyped up by him last week for this outcome

Also ask if there are any areas where you could focus on improving for future interviews

like

Yeah he basically said my skills and interview feedback had nothing to do with the decision and he hopes I’ll look for other roles. Not sure if he was just trying to sugarcoat but I assume the other candidates must’ve been just a bit better

like

I’ve heard that google recruiters aren’t able to share the details to HC’s decision, but worth a try. I agree with G3, YOE and education degree are things they already accepted if they decided to interview you.

Looking for some advice here. I am very close to getting an offer from Google for a L6 role. There are two roles I am in contention for - one in customer success org in GCP and another in GTech. Ofcourse the nature of the roles are different but they are both Strategy and Ops roles.

- Where is the prestige if I have to make a choice?
- Is the TC range higher in GCP vs GTech? Assuming same levels for each?
- Any other advice?
