No, I was the same way, I have done 7 loops over the last 10 years, the first 2 were a no, and after that, I don't care and interview much better. I assume I am not getting the job so no pressure. Companies with offers were Amazon (3), Microsoft (2) google was a no both times, and to be honest that was a very good thing, google isn't nearly as good as it was 7-10 years ago.

What are your success stories about succession planning? I was hired as a lateral to work on/help sustain a retiring partner's book of business.

I don't want him to feel pushed out, and have a lot to learn from him, but I do want to help/plan handoff of work. Interested in guidance for how to have these conversations!

I interviewed for an internship at an agency I wasn’t super excited about, but wanted to get some interview practice in. When I met the ACD who interviewed me, we really hit it off and it made me (..)

Referral for an interview for a dream job, emailed availability for Zoom meeting to the interviewer. Never heard back. Got an email this morning saying they waited on zoom for ten minutes but I was a no show. I looked at google calendar and the meeting was there, but never received a notification, email, etc. I emailed back immediately and apologized and they agreed to do it tomorrow. What do I say?
