Have you ever went for a job and new u we’re getting the job but then see the person they picked isn’t even better than you?

This happens in so many companies. I hope you hold onto your worth despite them passing over your talent. More success to come for you.

The truth is, you never know who is “better” or “worse” than you. You can’t see into the mind of the recruiter, and you don’t know what they were evaluating you based on. It’s better just to move on than to dwell on who is “better” or “worse” because you don’t even know what they were measuring

Good pov and truth but I also challenge all Recruiters and hiring managers to be more transparent and clear when writing job descriptions. Maybe Include soft skill, culture & EQ expectations. If not in writing than for sure in the conversations, discuss what is desired so both are on equal ground to make the most informed decision if an opportunity is a good fit or not.


I have experienced this multiple times, but then again I just think to mysekf that maybe the job wasnt for me and I'm better off somewhere else. There are so many doors still open for me

I had cleared all the rounds in S&P and had salary discussion 1.5 month back. The HR is always saying the management is on leave and will soon get the approval and release offer. Today she shas asked for one more week to release the offer. Should I wait for it or move on. Are they waiting for some other candidate to join before rejecting me at last moment. Only 10 days of my LWD are left.

Work remotely for a company going through major changes. Supervisor has been focused on these initiatives for the last 3 months. Have been doing supervisor’s job and my own for that time . No end in sight. No acknowledgement for leadership. No transparency into changes. New VP has not bothered to learn employees or skill sets. Just hired someone without opening a req or announcing open position whose job description matches much of mine. Found out in email to entire org. Any reason to stay?

Hi Fishes,

How easy/difficult it is to change base location in SAP. I interviewed for a position where I have given preferred location as gurgaon but I was offered a position in Bangalore . It's a good role and i have really less experience so I didn't want to let go of the opportunity. I want to know how easy will it be to change location to Gurgaon as my husband and inlaws are really unhappy with the decision and might force me to lose this opportunity.
Any tips will be much appreciated.
