I have completed and submitted my PDM and BGV on 5th October. Following then my candidature is on 'interview' stage on IBM career portal.

Now after 60 days HR mailed me that my candidature is on "Business Withhold",They will get back when it's resolved.

Is there still any hope or it is just a false explanation before they will permanently close my candidature.

If you are not hired for a project, post joining, your BU needs to feed you till you get a project.

So, if your BU is not able to afford the cost, it shall be on hold till there is any new opening! And there is a period to hold a candidature, I believe! Post 6 months, you can again re-apply if you don't get any feedback!

But, generally, after PDM, candidates get their offer letters.

Hope you get soon!

Aah! Sad! This was indeed unpleasant! Generally that doesn't happen!
Please DM!

This would usually happen when they have a very picky client that they want to place the resource with. They will select a few people, send the profiles to the client. The client picks a few as required (or reject them all, sometimes). That good /unpleasant news is then conveyed to people awaiting it. The withhold is usually that, unless the year is closing.

I hope you find what you're looking for - all the best for the hunt.

I had a really weird interview for Creative Director today.

It’s a small startup. HR interviewed me and asked all the hard hitting questions (how do you get design inspiration, how do you deal with design roadblocks, what sets you apart for this role?) which I thought was odd for a screening interview.

They made some affirmative noises then said the next step would be a design test (one pager) which I would present to a panel of interviewers including the CMO.
Anyone else think this is odd?

Annual Raise coming up:

Current salary is X where X = $75k + an annual bonus that only applies if the company does well that year

Desired salary is Y where Y = a range from 80 - 89.999

Problem is I've been told that salary typically only gets raised 3% each year, without deviation.

To reach Y, I would need at least a 0.0667% increase or so.

Am I boned or.. ?
