“We’ll keep you in mind” is a nice way of saying you’re not getting the job. They won’t keep you in mind unless you apply again and your name pops up during the keyword search.

7 interviews ?

like

They are most likely not thinking of you at all, even for a perfect role that may come up. They will always go through the process from 0 and pick a fresh face over the candidate they didn’t think was the best last time. Runners-up may as well be last place. I say that as a multiple runner-up. Your only path into this company is to slide into a decision-makers DMs, but that’s a long game.

Move on. It’s over. 7 interviews in means you made an impression so keep the contacts, but this is a dead end.

I have 2 offers: 1. PwC US for the Manager position. 2. Infosys for the Senior consultant position. Both offered same base salary (around 150,000 USD) PwC has huge signing bonus. Have to join Infosys as H1 transfer is already done and I already resigned from TCS by the time PwC offer was finalized. Once PwC H1 transfer is done then should I leave Infosys within 2-3 months after joining or should I continue with Infosys and decline PwC offer?

I’m fed up with the hours and lack of support in public and want to leave before next busy season for context.

Hi there. Earlier this year I laid out a business case for why I should get a raise & I asked for a $20-25k annual raise. I got $15k. I found out another person also asked for a raise around the same time. He didn’t give a business case, he just asked;he got the full amount he asked for ($70k). He is more senior than me, has been there longer, & we are not in the same function. However, something is just not sitting right with me about this situation. Any thoughts? Am I just over-analyzing?
