Is it possible to tell if you were offered a position after someone rejected? How do y’all feel about not being original choice?

Completely fine! Idc about being a 2nd choice because I'm not the coolest or smartest person on the block. Don't sweat it. If it's the one position you were hoping for and the offer package meets your expectations, why not go for it?

Agree, recruiting is an art that has not been perfected. It’s completely fine, just kick butt when you start and if you’re amazing they’ll reconsider what they look for in their top choices!
