This and prioritize the interview. If are usually on calls all day, people usually don't even realize if you are not available for a few hours. Specially now that most interviews are still virtual.

I block out interviews on my calendar as plus one meetings

+1meeting? Do you just invite yourself?

Block off your calendar

Block calendar. Claim you have doctor/dentist appointments. Claim you have some errand to run. Block off time for lunch or gym. Interview first thing in the morning or last thing, as an earlier sign-on or later start may be easier than a missing timeslot in the middle of the day.

I applied for an engineering manager role at a fast scaling startup. My second interview went very well to the point where the manager told me to connect on LinkedIn in case I have more questions and the internal recruiter should get back to me soon. That was Wednesday. I sent a follow up email to the recruiter expressing that I enjoyed the interview and look forward to feedback. It's now Monday and I am wondering how long I should wait before reaching out again if at all?
