I had 7, but that was really atypical. My company now maxes it out at 3.

I met with the hiring manager (my current boss, an Assistant GC) once for an interview, and then chatted with her briefly a couple more times during the interview process.

Depends on the size of the org, but I’d say 2-3 (not counting the recruiter screen if applicable).

Not necessarily.

We do 3-4 rounds with 5-6 interviewers (counting the recruiter and their initial screens)

6 for me, not including HR.

I’ll be up for promotion in a year and a half or so.

Feeling unenthusiastic about my work life recently. My agency doesn’t give me a lot to do, I often ask other folks if they need help. When I do finish a job, I’m always praised for it, and then I go back to to asking people.

Everyone at the agency seems to be busy all day. Not that I WANT to be super busy, but it makes me anxious to have to ask all the time. This is my first job, I haven’t met most any of my coworkers irl (we have no office). Work feels a bit like limbo.

What should I do?
