Interviewing with AWS as a L7 - however the automatic email said Senior Solution Architect (L6) when the Recruiter asked me to interview for Principal Solution Architect (L7) - Managerial. I've been taken for rides before where they over promise and then waste time throughout assessment etc. Passed all the aptitude tests and silly work and email tests pretty much just asking if anyone else have experienced this with AWS - is it a valid concern? Or am I being paranoid?

Asking for a friend. At what stage during the process of moving jobs did you reveal to your potential employer that you were pregnant? My friend is 4 months pregnant (not showing) and has her first zoom call interview tomorrow. Should she reveal her pregnancy from the get go? Or wait till the second round of interview? Or when she ends up getting the offer letter? Her current place of work has a three month notice period and the law in her country gives her a three month maternal leave.

Reviewing resumes and I see more and more frequent that people last one year or less at a job and move on to the next. Is that the new norm? I’m a millennial but my last job I was with for over 4 years. Can I ask in the interview why they’ve moved around so much? Or find a nicer way of asking that. I’m definitely looking for longevity not a hopper.
Need advice. I have a job offer in hand and visa transfer is in process. another firm reached out for an interview.
