Hi does anyone have experience interviewing for a job but not getting it and yet managed to keep in touch with the hiring manager and getting a job after? Just wondering if there are examples out there. What are some tips to staying connected to the hiring manager or keeping yourself on top of their minds etc.? Thanks!

I was offered a job at a lower title than the role I interviewed for, kindly turned them down but asked to keep the dialogue open with the hiring mgr on an informal basis. We connected on LinkedIn and about a month later, they offered the job at the original title I'd interviewed for. If I were you I'd suggest keeping in touch over LinkedIn and perhaps posting relevant content to get noticed. Or perhaps reach out directly if you have significant updates.

Hi! I really appreciate your reply! How did you maintain contact with the manager during the month leading up to the offer? What made them offer again? Thank you :)

Just asked for a follow-up call via recruiter and also connected on LinkedIn. Tbh I have no idea the rationale behind their choice.

Got to final round at McKinsey in January this year, didn't get an offer but got added to the Keep in Touch list, and the recruiter said I got good feedback but to wait a year before applying again. I started at Deloitte in October; if I decide to go for McKinsey again, is it weird to reach out again in January next year (having only worked for a few months at my current job), or should I go for it?

We are closer to the end of this initial selling than the beginning. All this technical selling on a 15 minute chart simply brings us back to a 4 Hour Halfway Back long of May 20 to Highs. And, we find support right in the middle of this HWB long. I think we can go a little lower to break the long in a dip below the 61.8% red line. Alternatively, we can hold here and rally. Either way, tomorrow or next week, we are due to rally 300 Nasdaq points. Take profits and be smart.
