Is it a smart idea to interview with random companies a couple times a year to stay sharp? Or am I potentially burning bridges for no reason?

You're either a genius or insane op, I love it. If you aren't looking for an exit it's likely a waste of time. There are other ways to improve speaking skills, story telling, pitching etc...

I don't think the effort you'd be putting in would be worth the value of extra interview practice.

I appreciate the perspective! I’m getting ready for full-time interviews and jumped to the closest simulation I could think of, might be time to take some steps back.

Does it come off as entitled as I think it does?

I’m interviewing at two great tech companies and am in the last rounds of interviews at both, meeting with the execs. Both companies have expressed that they want to hire me regardless if the execs agree and are willing to find a place for me. Both have great company culture and benefits, and both are willing to meet my salary requirements. I wish I could work at both of them! If you were in this position, what other factors, besides the obvious would help you make a choice between the two?

Hi there!
I completed the last round of an interview (presentation) last week. Originally they said they would be calling my references & then make an offer accordingly.
Today they updated that they'd like me to travel to their HQ (based in Nordics & I'm in London) for the final round where I'd meet the CEO, the hiring manager and a couple of people in the team.
I don't think I'm the only one in the process - even though initially the last round was the presentation.
What are your thoughts?
