I’ve been applying to dozens of jobs but have stopped hearing back even for first round interviews. Has it been slow lately for anyone else?

Yes. For me it's because June is their fiscal year end.

Yup. I stopped getting interviews after March. I missed the hiring waves, unfortunately.

Not for me personally but have heard a lot of mixed responses from peers around me interviewing out as well

For the industry jobs, they took like 6 weeks to reach out to me…. Every single one of them.

We’re probably entering the typical summer lull period, especially after the past couple months of crazy hiring sprees across the board. I would think things pick up again in August

So I just finished an interview round for a startup, and despite my better judgement, I built a model for measuring success of a marketing campaign - part of their ‘case exercise’ to be completed at home. They just let me know that they’re going with ‘other candidates’ and I realized I built them a reusable framework for free. 🤡

Had a second interview with the head of the group and after he told me they’re still bringing candidates in for the next couple of weeks and I should stay tuned in. So, what gives?

So I had an interview last Friday for a contract to hire role that I thought went really well. So up until today there wasn’t a peep from the recruiter hiring for role, so I reached out. The recruiter then asked me how comfortable I was in a fast paced environment. I responded by telling her that after working a mix of agency and client side, yes. I honestly thought the answer was pretty self explanatory. She then pushed for more details, which I provided an example of. Red flag?
