Confidence has gotten me wayyy further than it should have. When I interviewed for jobs I really wanted, I got nervous and I wasn’t myself. I didn’t do as well and I didn’t get the job. When I interviewed for a job I didn’t really want, I wasn’t nervous and I nailed it. I now work at said terrible company (that was me earlier complaining, haha).

Bottom line is, you know what you’re doing and if you’re confident in the interview, they’ll see that!

I don't know where you are, but in NYC and many other places, it's now illegal for recruiters or potential employers to ask about your salary history. They can ask you what you are looking for in terms of compensation, but not what you have been paid in the past.

Ask questions! Come ready to explain a time you messed up and what you did to fix it. And ask for the job at the end “this is a great company, I would love to work here.” Good luck!!

I have only few more weeks to my LWD. I attended interview for 5 companies all cleared, but only 1 offer in hand, which I am not satisfied with. Others never came back with salary negotiation/confirmation. They just ask the expected CTC and never get back with update. It's a painful wait and demotivating. Do they come back or am I just waiting for nothing? My expectation is not out of the box too. Please suggest?

During the pandemic we started incorporating SparkHire for one way video interviews and now my hiring managers are super attached to it. It was intended to cut down on rounds of interviews - one SparkHire + 1 in person meeting. But now I'm seeing a lot of candidates drop off and not follow through on the spark hire. Is there any argument to hold onto one way video interviews anymore or should I drop it?

Does anyone have any experience with leaving Google then attempting to rejoin after 1 or 2 years? I read online that is mostly about your manager's feedback upon your leave, and that you could sometimes be easily accepted again and sometimes without an interview.

I am particularly concerned as I would only be working for a year and I don't know if that's enough time to get a good enough feedback.

P.s I am starting next month, but I know I might need to leave after a year for a family matter.

Hi All!
Currently interviewing for a Cloud Program Manager role in the PSO. Had my first interview first week of May and the recruiter emailed me two weeks later letting me know that I was going to move to the second round, and asked for dates I was available. Its been 2 weeks (have emailed her a couple times) since I've heard from her. Wondering how I should approach this? I've heard the interview process can take awhile, and just want to make sure I'm managing expectations for hearing back

Interviewed for a role at an agency back in early June. Reached the final round and they told me they'd get back to me. I followed up twice and the HR Recruiter responded to my second follow up stating that they were still interviewing candidates for this role & that they'd reach out with any updates. She asked me if I have other offers on the table so she can keep the team updated on my status. I responded immediately stating that I am in final rounds elsewhere but they are my first choice...
