I don’t see anything wrong with reaching out, if anything, it will show you’re really interested in learning more about the position.

Hi Guys, After clearing written test in Accenture ,HR is not scheduling interview for long time. Can anyone help in this if there is any openings in your team/project ? YOE: 3.7, Technology Stack: Devops,aws

I had applied for two job openings in Deloitte USI for ServiceNow Developer role and they rejected the application within 4 hrs of applying stating “Unfortunately, after careful consideration, we have determined that our current position is not ideally suited to your talents, experience, and qualifications.” Can anyone shed some light on this. Are there any other eligibility criteria which I may be failing to meet? My 10th, 12th and Graduation is above 70 Deloitte Deloitte USI Deloitte India

Trying so hard not to get discouraged on this job search. The last rejection was a hard one & I needed to cry about it.
