That seems like untruthful feedback. They knew how much experience you had when you started interviewing. I’m sorry this is happening to you. My advice would be to seek counsel from people currently working in the industry re: handling conflict, selling ideas, improving your book, and then getting back out there. Likely what’s happening is they love your thinking but something is amiss, and entirely trainable/correctable. Happy to help if you want to send a DM! I can connect you with some copywriters.

It’s also a numbers game. You’ll connect with someone looking at your aptitude for something. Vs years of experience and that will be the place

Today I had a 4th round interview and gave a 10 min presentation for a position I really want. I honestly love everything about this position and is my dream job. I thought it went really well & she seemed very positive. She said she would follow up with the ceo (who I already met with) and let me know about next steps. I was originally told there would be 5 rounds and with every other round I’ve known next steps before I left the interview. This time I had to wait. Is this a good or a bad sign?
