I got my feet wet in the financial services industry as a client/customer services analyst. unfortunately i got made redundant, now i am trying to find other similar roles to build from where i left off. I've got linkedin Premium for a month and the stats are bloody shocking! why is a person with an MBA applying for this role, why is a senior level person applying for this role. its bad enough that it tells you 60 applicants have applied for this role, thats just on linkedin by the way.

I’m the person with an MBA applying for that role lol It seems like no other position will take me with less than 5 years in the industry so I figured might as well get my foot in the door and work from there.

Best of luck to you as well! Asking for industry experience for an MBA is a wild move. No worries though, it seems like going into finance without doing an internship in undergrad or something of the sorts puts you at a disadvantage so you have to try and climb the ranks in a more creative way.

Just had a series of interviews started in September and finally ended in November last week only to be told that suddenly I'm not a great fit for the job.

Lesson learnt stay Strictly transactional until you sign the final contract👌

Recruiters: if a candidate said something along the lines of “I’m obsessed with this opportunity” (not verbatim but it was that energy) how would you interpret that?
I don’t feel it came off desperate like I need to get this job, but rather in a “I’m really excited about this company and role” kind of way.

Edit: they’re also aware I’m in final round interview for another position, and meets all job requirements if that adds to anything

So I had a coding interview recently and have decided that the format was actually pretty unfair for people with ADHD. Essentially you have to code the answer on a screen shared with the interviewer whilst explaining it and listening to the interviewer - all of this is anxiety provoking and distracting meaning I underperformed on quite a simple coding task. It felt a bit like asking a person who has dyslexia to compete in a spelling bee rather than a written test.
