I believe that never happened to me

If they did in my background and reference check, it didn’t prevent me from getting the job. I left my last firm with below average performance. Doing better now, maybe better culture fit.

I’ve been looking for an in-house position for years now and I’m emotionally worn out. I got through numerous rounds of interviews with one company recently, only for them to pass. I’ve cried and prayed over this, finally realizing that it may not be in the cards for me. I hate my firm and law firms, so I’m trapped. It just sucks because I’m an over-achiever but I’m failing miserably at my legal career. Did anyone have any luck with landing an in-house job after years of trying? Any advice?

Hello... This is for Deloitte guys. I have cleared the interview in Delloite and have signed and sent the letter of intent and it's been 11 days and I still haven't received my formal offer letter. Also the HR is not picking up my call. She just once said that it is pending with the offer management team. Do you have any idea if this takes so long or where has it gone wrong? Please let me know if you have any idea. I am really really worried. Thanks.
