I connected with a partner at a commercial real estate company about my career pivot & this company having a potential position for me. I’ll be meeting this partner in person for the first time in a few days. I wana make a good impression yet I’m nervous since I just got rejected after a formal interview. What are some good questions I should ask when meeting people in high positions like this? I wana take advantage of this connection to get the job I’m dreaming of

I would ask questions related to career pathway, impacts on comercial real estate post Covid, ask about commercial real estate market predictions moving forward, and get to know your partner on a more personal level. Maybe take him on as a mentor. Best of luck

You were rejected after the interview with this specific company? Because if do, they have seen something in you they liked to set up this new meeting

No no this is a total different company

I would personally ask the what hard skills should someone in this field have or what career setback have they faced that they kater realized was an advantage. Something like that, I don't want to creep them out by asking too much.

Do your research about the current news or situations related to commercial real estate. This way, you will be able to stay in a converstation with him/her.

I’ve had radio silence from a small investment bank for about a week now. I’ve completed several rounds of interviews, but last Thursday the firm reposted the job I’ve been interviewing for. On Friday the headhunter said that they’re not sourcing new candidates and it’s probably just LinkedIn automatically refreshing the listing. She said they had a busy week last week but will make a final decision this week - is the delay and radio silence a bad sign or is this typical for experienced hiring?
