When you say “Interviewed twice” do you mean you came in for on-site interviews or just had phone screens with a recruiter? How far apart were those interviews? Were they the same time or two different roles?

like

Screen or phone interviews. One in person at a conference the other on the phone. The second time I did a phone screening the had my old email on file.

The recruiter either goes goes vacation or gets a new role by time they said they would follow back with me. What am I doing wrong?

I doubt you’re doing anything “wrong”, it sounds more like they either have more qualified candidates or you’re not the right fit after the phone screen. I’d take some time and make sure you’re really applying to roles that fit your skill set. Right note G is hiring extremely specific roles, so they might be even pickier about who they bring past phone screens to fit that job versus a more general role fit to Google. There might be little to no progress for the next few months.

Thanks! I interviewed and had a phone screen prior to the pandemic.

Hello fishes, I got email from Accenture stating you did not clear skill interview required for this role. We are u able to proceed with your candidature. Is there any chance HR might call after this ? Performed exceptionally well for other questions.except the online coding tool. Not sure why I was asked to code suddenly. I explained the logic used and code was compiling without any error.but they needed exact output in the tool. Any thoughts?

It’s been nearly 7 years since I’ve interviewed. Came to my firm right out of college. Getting back into it after all this time.

I hate to complain but it seems like a big time commitment, especially since nothing is guaranteed. I also understand it’s my choice to put myself thru the misery 😬 - just looking for some insight on what you’ve experienced.

Looking for some insight! What role(s) in GCP would be a fit for someone who is great at building research prototypes and then leveraging/leading software engineers to realize the details and build them out?

What would that be called at google? Thank you!
