How much do you ‘stretch’ the truth in initial recruiter conversations? For example, they want someone with SQL skills, I’m familiar and have run SQL queries someone else wrote.

I have sql skills but can’t write a query. I still list sql knowledge as a skill. If it’s part of the job description you should ask how much of the job is sql based. Also I would think that if the job is needing someone with serious skills, they’d be upfront and more descriptive about that in the listing.

Over the course of 6 weeks, I had several panel interviews and the next step was a final in-person interview. Each round I had great feedback and my correspondence with the company recruiter was consistent and friendly. Until now. After a week of radio silence since my last interview, I sent a gentle polite follow up that has gone unanswered for almost a week. I saw that the original JD was reposted on LinkedIn a few days before my last interview (ugh). Am I being ghosted? So confusing.

Just sharing a win - I’ve not been working as I just had a baby and wanted to spend more time with her before putting her in daycare at 6 months. I was getting really discouraged and starting to worry about having to pay for daycare while still not having a job, and REALLY regretting turning down an offer a few months ago, which was a good offer but not exactly what I wanted. - I just got three great offers in the last 48 hours and am feeling great. Stay confident, ya’ll! Good things will happen
