How do you know if your interview went well? I’m moving along but I felt like most conversations the interviewer spent most of the time speaking about themselves.

If the interviewer talks a lot that’s a good sign

I guess it’s going well then. I don’t feel like I’m doing any heavy lifting in these conversations.

The same way you can tell if a date is going well. If they talk a lot, seem intrigued, and want to get to know you more then you’re golden.

Give people space to talk about themselves, it’s everyone’s favorite past time. Most of the time, they end the convo feeling good because they got to feel important and that good feeling is associated with your interview. Therefore, they will think that your interview went well later when they reflect on it.

I can tell you I thought I had a bad interview and I got an offer

One thing I always ask at the end of the interview is “how do you think this interview went?” Quick way to know how it went. Obviously if you did poorly I wouldn’t ask, but if you feel you did well it doesn’t hurt. Shows ur open to feedback.

Congrats!!!

market is so competitve. firms are trying to sell candidate on their firm so them talking alot is usually good. i can tell in the first few minutes if i want to make an offer if im already impressed by resume

I agree that the market is super hot right now for candidates. Let them talk and ALWAYS ask, "what is the culture like here?" I decide based on the answer to that question and the interaction with the interviewer/staff I would be working with. You will be shocked by the wide variety of answers to that question and it really highlights what they value as the most important. Also, the more talking they do about their firm the better odds you have. They're trying to get you to choose them over the other 5 or so places you have interviewed with.

If the interviewer is talking about what makes their firm/company great, that means they are trying to sell you instead of you trying to sell them.

Had a lateral interview that seemed to go well, with an invite for a second interview just 4 days later. Said they'd be in touch. After one week I followed up writing sample. They thanked me and said they'd be in touch "next week" (which was this last week). Never heard back. Any advice on what to do next? Don't want to be annoying, and don't know what a typical time-frame is.

In house interviews: I finished a final round of interviews and was expecting a final decision after the interviews. Rather than yes or no, the recruiter told me that the feedback is positive but they need to interview one more candidate to compare since I am the first one interviewed. And they wanted to add one more meeting with their new team member starting next week. Is this common and what’s the best way to deal with this unexpected message? Thanks!
