Interviewing at two companies. Company A I’m already at the Partner interview next week. Company B first interview is next week. Problem is company B is totally my preference. I feel confident I’d get it but I can’t be 100% sure. What have you guys done in scenarios where you have multiple offers landing at staggered times? I don’t want to resign for a competitor only to join a different firm in the end - feels like it makes me look confused and unreliable.

Just keep the conversation with the first firm going, they'll tolerate it.

Lol not a big gap. Firm 1 ask for a week to think about it or, speak to other colleagues, and ask HR some questions. Let Firm 2 you have an offer with Firm 1, and can they give you a concrete answer. Recently gone through this. Firms are generally accommodating. They want the right ppl that wont leave in 6 months. May be that is the UK though, US market appears to have higher turnover.

Push out the interview at A by one week. Try to expedite B.

No. Wait until you actually get an offer in hand before doing anything. Until you have an official offer you have nothing. At that point you have some leverage to speak about timing. It’s nobody’s business who else your interviewing with and this question is only asked to benefit the recruiter.

Tonight Meghan said that she was concerned that “the first member of color in this family isn’t being titled in the same way as other grandchildren would be”.

This is why I feel like this interview was somewhat staged and that M&H are not exactly the most trustworthy.

My alternatives so far are being a junior SRE for a big insurance company or system engineer at a big retail company. Then I could make a lateral move from there.
