I have an interview at JP Morgan in London. It’s a face to face.
Can I stress smart with a blazer and trouser and wear slim white trainers. This is how I have been dressing for over 5 years in finance.
Is it suitable for an interview? I haven’t had one in person since 2018.

So I've had 2 hiring managers and several recruiters from Amazon reach out to me about applying for some open positions with the company (android).

I'm really not sure how badly I want to work for them and I don't want to be laid off months after being hired on. Anyone know what Amazon hiring is like?

I found a company I was really excited about working at. I applied for the job and went through 5 rounds of interviews. At the end they said I was OVER qualified and they want me for a different position higher up in the company. I was super excited they then had me go through 5 more rounds, 3/5 people were the same. The interviews mostly went "didn't you get the job, I highly recommend you? I'll just put you down as a 10". After those were done they told me I was UNDER qualified. Can't win!
