Ask yourself the actual question - is there a level where I’m above human decency? Where I decide my time is more valuable than the person who could help me get a new job? Where I can’t take 2 minutes out my Very Important Life to thank someone for doing something for me?

I’m starting to feel like startups are age discriminating. I interviewed with “a manager” who had never worked in the business, and had no clue when I used verbiage she should have already known. Anyone else feel this way, and I’m not that old just either and have years of experience?

Despite having felt it was a great interview, being ghosted by the a couple of the big 4 after final stage. Felt connected with the interviewers and positively answered their questions and felt culturally fit for their org. What would have potentially gone wrong? Not heard from one for 1 month (probably move on now) and another 2 weeks…
Thanks.
