Have two days of virtual interviews with a company. Went thru HR stage and Hiring Mgr. Realizing now that while I love the company’s mission, the exact role I’m interviewing for doesn’t seem appealing. Any advice on how to handle? Go forward or cancel interviews? Bad look to cancel?

Continue going through with it, if the TC offered ends up being good then it might convince you right?

Based on the info shared, it’ll be lower than what I’m expecting at PwC

Send a note to the recruiter saying you just accepted an offer with another company and won’t be continuing with the interviewing process. Thank them for their consideration. This way it doesn’t waste more time for both parties.

How do you know it’s not appealing? And how do you feel about the hiring manager? People are notoriously bad at articulating exactly what a role entails. You’re probably getting some sense of it but not everything. Something similar happened to me, where I didn’t think the role was the best fit from interviews (in my case it was more that I thought it was only an 80% fit or so), but I proceeded with the process because I really liked the hiring manager and team. I’m glad I did, because I recently joined and found that this is a much better fit than we realized. Now I’m even more excited about my role.

I posed the question to my FB friends: “My dear parent friends with school-aged children, will you please share with me your thoughts on your child returning to school this fall? With all of the debate and varying opinions, as a teacher, I would love to know what my friends think. Please be honest with me; I would love to know how you feel. I will not judge or comment, and I ask the same of those who respond. Please feel free to PM me as well.” It was eye-opening, tear-jerking. Please consider!

I appreciate any kind of guidance.

Might be a paranoid mom question - my 16 month old is starting daycare next week. So far, I’ve had virtual interviews/meet and greet sessions with the daycare staff. Today we went in for our in-person orientation and I noticed that my child is the only non-white kid in his class of 8. Not entirely shocking, but in my head (and having seen pictures in their catalog) I was hoping there would be a little more diversity. Should I be worried about my kid feeling left out because he looks different?
