Has anyone gone through 3 rounds of interviews with a firm, been told there are no other candidates, and then NOT received an offer?! This wait is killing me.

Ugh 😩

Not sure if there are other candidates, but I'm in a similar boat.

Thanks. You too!

Yup. Had 6 rounds and disclosed that I had another offer. They sped up the last couple rounds for me including the final one and then the day I had to accept the other offer, they told me they were still interested, didn’t have other candidates, but they wouldn’t be able to meet my timeline. I haven’t heard since. WHY do firms do this.

Hello... I have cleared three rounds of interview and my recruiter said I am still in contention for the Job position at Deloitte. However, I don’t see things going progress since 2 months. My last round of interview was on 10th April. But since then the only email which got was that I am in contention but no updates. I’m not sure what exactly the process would be! I don’t know when will they even do my background check... I don’t want to miss an opportunity with Deloitte.

I work as an implementation consultant and my work is highly industry specific, utility billing for municipalities generally less than 20k accts. My position does not require any technical knowledge, only that I know the software well. As I look for other jobs (more just curious and not actively applying) I see that I am not a fit for much out there. I have no technical skills to accompany my IT degree because it’s been so long since I touched SQL. Have I siloed myself? Cont in comments.
