@Recruiters, please give people like myself a chance.
@everyone: if you know of a job or can refer me, that'd be really appreciated!

If you have a background in bio, it might be worth considering applying to health tech/biotech startups and seeing if you can connect your experience together?

I recently had an interview with HCL and cleared 2 rounds of technical interview. I waited for a week for HR call but no such call was received. I then contacted the POC who scheduled the interview (he is an HCL employee) and he said that I have been shortlisted and will receive HR call shortly. This was 1 week ago and I have still not received any call. Has anyone else faced the same issue? And if yes, should I even expect a call fro HR?

Interviewed someone the other day who was vaping the entire time. I am fairly forgiving when it comes to attire/formality. I just try to focus on the work in front of me, but that was way too casual for me.

Am I blowing this out of proportion?
Has anyone else experienced something similar?

I have less than 6 months left on H1-B and my firm is in process of applying for extension. Also I am in middle of interviews to switch. Lets say I get an offer - would my next employer be able to apply for transfer + extension in one go/ same petition or would they have to file 2 separate petitions? In case of the latter, would it be beneficial to first get my extension and then have my next employer file for extension only. Any thoughts?

I'm interviewing with 4 companies and find it odd that only two of them brought up comp early in the process while the other two haven't asked once about my salary expectations even after multiple interviews. Is this pretty typical? I have been recruited to my last several roles and this is my first time ever interviewing with multiple companies at once.

I got a call from HR for interview and he told he will schedule an interview for next week. Its been 2 weeks still there is no call or onterview scheduled. Should I wait or call the HR again about the process. How much does l&t take to schdule a interview and how long is the process ?

What do you think about the loop (non-tech)? I really don’t think it told much about who I really am at work. I felt that asking me the really small details of everything actually missed a huge chunk of what I do and makes me a valuable leader. I had to spend a few interviews going into the finest details of products’ features in my past companies where my role, past or future, has nothing to do with product. It felt like testing a professional swimmer how fast they run 100m. How did you feel?

Financially, it’s the best position I been in. But mentally in this environment, it’s depressing & slow. Nothing innovative or engaging. What would you do?
