I had an interview for a technical sales role. I thought it went really well but the recruiter just called and said they won’t be moving forward because they felt I didn’t have a lot of product knowledge. I’m new to their product and industry. Is it worth reaching out to the recruiter for consideration for a different role, a lower level than what I interviewed for?

Yes it is worth it. To put it bluntly: they are currently offering 0 job. They cannot offer you -1 job.
If you tell them you are keen to learn etc and willing to work your way into the role then they may well have room for you.

I’m a business/commercial lawyer with 8 years experience looking to relocate to Chicago from NYC area, while also trying to make the jump to in-house after only ever working at a boutique firm. It’s been 5 months and I haven’t had any luck applying to job postings on the usual sites (no calls, no interviews, nothing). I can’t tell if this is due to covid, the market, the fact that I don’t have any in-house experience, the fact that I live out of state, or something else entirely. Any insights??
