I interviewed for an associate position at a mid size firm. I really liked them, but they offered the position to someone else, only giving me an answer on the status of my candidacy after that person accepted. Is it wrong to assume that they hadn’t rejected me sooner in case others didn’t accept? If so, how can I let the firm know I’d like to be considered for future openings? I used a recruiter, should I have her tell them? Should I contact the interviewers directly?

At what point should we be reducing 401k/IRAs and redirecting to the taxable account? Otherwise our income balloons late in life. Curious how others are managing this.
