If LinkedIn shows that there were like 50 or 60 applicants for a job, approx how many folks is the company actually considering? I had an interview last week for an in-house role at a tech company and just wondering what my competition may be?

It probably depends on the company how many they want to consider, and you never know if LinkedIn is inflating that number. Try not to stress over what you can’t control, it will work out if it’s meant to be (and 200 applicants). Good luck!!

Sure thing! I’ve been on the hiring side, and wildly varies on the number of each level of finalists, that’s why it’s hard to speculate. Keep doing your thing and everything works out for a reason. :)

There is no telling. If you are asking for anecdotes, my firm posted a position on LinkedIn. Several of the applicants were not from our city or state and had no apparent tie to the area, which was crazy since it is an in-office position. We received 26 applications and interviewed 6 in the first round, and 1 in the second round. We also were using a recruiter, though, and interviewed 3 people through that.
