Had an in person interview scheduled with Cognizant Technology on "Interview day" Dec 20 in NJ. They called and said interview day was canceled but gave no reason. Anyone else experience similar?

Why would you want to interview with Cognizant after Harvard?

I am sorry for that Harvard comment OP. I hope you find a role that’s best for your career, hang in there. Things pick up after the holiday season as engagements begin to sell and budget is reset at our clients. Good luck.

In all seriousness I would bet this is what happened. Their interviewers bailed on them after agreeing to do the interviews that day because they got new travel opportunities or checked the calendars about their kids’ plays, and they’re trying to figure out the calendar for next year. Which is not awesome to be on the applicant-end of :(

Don’t go there. I lost my job and had one interview there. Was supposed to have a follow up but they decided to skip it and gave me an offer at M. I declined due to salary and PTO. They said ok thanks for the consideration and moved on. Then two days later emailed me offering me an SM position. I still said no. You can do better.

The point is that the market is still super hot, hence the sort of desperate hiring move I experienced by a subpar firm. There is no need to rush into things unless OP has just not been having luck. Deloitte just started cutting people a couple weeks ago from what I heard. Someone with D on their resume should have more options, including other Big 4.

Thanks for feedback. Cognizant said the group I interviewed with put off hiring for 2 months.
