How do headhunters / recruiters ghost you after you’ve invested time interviewing with a firm? I just don’t understand. They can’t possibly get to the interview stage with that many people for a role where they can’t take the time to send a sorry, we selected another candidate message. Like cmon, we’ve taken the time to prep, carved out time in busy schedules, and become emotionally invested as well lol

2 years later, I’m still looking.

Disclaimer - not a typical post for this bowl. Wanted to understand more about the mental health services at Google (I already read the high level info on the onboarding portal). I’m starting soon and wanted to ask what Googlers thought of the available resources. My mental health has taken a hit since fall ‘20 - I tried wellness programs through my current employer (counseling and mindfulness) but felt that the providers were more into utilization of the benefit than trying to solve my issues.

When making a decision for your organization, consider the SCARF Model: The SCARF model (Rock, 2008) is a summary of important discoveries from neuroscience about the way people interact socially. The model is built on three central ideas: 1. The brain treats many social threats and rewards with the same intensity as physical threats and rewards (Lieberman, & Eisenberger, 2009). I am sure many will relate to having these same reactions within our social groups.
