I had my final round interviews few weeks back. Heard from the recruiter today that they would for me to have a virtual coffee with the hiring manager’s manager.
1. Does that mean I went back a step with needing another validation or this would have been a step in the process anyway?
2. If this goes well, then no hiring committee or is it more data point collection for the hiring committee?
3. Anything to be mindful of for the virtual coffee?

1) did you go through general interviews before (vs specific team/role)? This is probably just team match stage pre-HC. They’re mostly not doing general HC-approved right now.
2) You always need hiring committee. Doesn’t matter if the HM is absolutely 100% sold on you- you have to go through it.
3) if this is team match it’s largely a chemistry check, though manager will still want to talk to you about your experience and make sure you’re a fit for what their teams needs are.

Fair enough D1, everyone has a different approach!

Update: the hiring manager’s manager’s “informal interview” went well. There was nothing “informal” about it. Now the hiring manager wants to talk to me again. Feel like I am going in circles :(
Has anyone had this before?
Also do they ask detailed visa transfer related questions before giving the offer? The recruiter sent me a long list of questions from their immigration team and I am still going circles in interviews and don’t even have an offer
(Trying to gauge on whether I should start getting my hopes high or not. Just yet)

This process takes forever, as you’re finding out. Just be patient.
Tbh I always advise not to get your hopes up until you sign the offer. There’s a million steps to get through first.
