What are you recruiting for? Full-time mba?

Top 30 school. It’s reputable for the area, but it’s not like top notch or whatever. My outcome will be “above average” for the school, and I recruited very hard

Which MBA you’re at really matters in a down economy. If it isn’t M7 or at least T10, you’re likely out of luck.

Hi All! I need some help. I got recently laid off and I am going to start interviewing for roles soon. Should I tell recruiter that I’m not in the company anymore? If so, what should I say? (I got fired due to my performance, but my manager set me up for failure from the beginning, aka toxic leader).
Also, should I update my LinkedIn so that recruiters know I’m open for work?

I’m interviewing for jobs that would essentially lead to a minor career pivot. I have gotten to 4 straight final rounds (4-5 interviews and a presentation for each company) to be told I’m second choice in favor of someone with more experience. I’m losing my mind and so tired of interviewing tbh. What can I do differently, or do I just need to chill out and wait for a company to say yes?
