Hello Fishes,
I gave an L1 tech interview at Honeywell for SE2 .NET full stack role.
How long will it take for me to hear back from the HR ?
What could be further rounds ?
If all goes well how much can I ask for ?

YOE - 3
Skills - .NET, Azure data stack

Sad Story of 90 days NP!

A recruiter called me for a position, took all my details. I have cleared 2 rounds and then HR round as well.
Later, I shared all the required documents like Salary slips etc.
Now they reach out to me and saying cannot proceed because we want immediate joiner or someone who can join within 30 days.

ek achi opportunity chali gyi hath se!

Can anyone at a company like Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, etc tell me about the breakdown of a Recruiters job? For example, when I worked in agency recruitment, it was 100% sourcing. Working for a healthcare system now, it is more about the candidate experience, much less sourcing, and focusing on the candidates who do apply (thankfully we have a great reputation).

Being that most corporations have dedicated sourcers, I was interested in learning more!

Hello Fishers

I am in the middle of an interview, HR round is tomorrow.
The new company is asking me to finalize the last working day, in order to schedule HR interview round.

But I already experienced a situation where they ask me to carry on reliving formalities before issuing Offer letter, and later backs out, not issued offer letter.

My question is
What is right for me to do now
Ask for Offer letter, and tell them only after receiving offer letter, I can proceed reliving formalities?
