There are definitely times when decisions are made but the posting is still up. That being said, I see no harm in applying anyways. Worst case you end up without the job, which is where you'll be anyways if you don't apply lol.

Hello, it’s been a very hard couple of months applying for jobs and not hearing back. I interviewed at Facebook (Meta) , McKinsey & Company through referrals. I keep getting beat down because I don’t get callbacks from submitting my resume directly to the company (only 3 so far out of hundreds). My background is in Biotechnology (Master’s) and Biomedical engineering with industry experience in Reg Affairs + Project Management. I want to work on product teams in high growth companies. Any tips?

Just heard back from EY that they will not proceed with an offer 😞 Receuiter said I did great in interviews but the market condition change/lack of pipeline was the concern. Recruiter wanted to keep the communication open for next year as they expect things to change by then, but all sounds a bit like a nicely wrapped rejection. Disappointed but I guess I should focus on the next interviews with Deloitte and KPMG!
