Juggling 5 interviews in a week. Should I just start cutting down some potential companies and tell them I'm not interested or keep them around for more leverage?

I’ve never interviewed with more than two at a time. I can’t imagine juggling five plus holding down a current job.

It's been really stressful keeping track of the things I need to prep for and finding time to schedule interviews.

Would it be insulting to them if I pushed back my interviewing availability - most of them already know I'm actively interviewing with others.

I think you should do all of them but make sure interview #1 is a warmup for the more important interviews on days2 and 3 and then 4/5 are the less important ones

I interviewed at 3 companies recently. It was mentally and even physically exhausting! I was so sick of talking about myself and my career goals. Ended up with 2 offers and it was a challenge to decide between the two. Do what you’re comfortable with but don’t stress yourself out. 5 seems like a lot and I’m guessing you’ll have multiple per day. It’s not uncommon to push them back if needed

My boss is currently working on pushing through a promotion, with a vision to build a team around me for 2022. I haven't outwardly said that I am unhappy, but I know that I don't envision myself here for much longer. I'm in final rounds of interviews & if it works out would be switching industries. Feeling some guilt around knowing how much they are trying to push for me & impact to clients when I might leave soon. Any advice on how to deal w this? Know I can't say much until offer in hand.

Hi ladies, I need some advice on how to navigate/build a relationship with my fiance's family. Some of his siblings and family members are very standoffish and distant. For background, we are same race different culture. I'm very open and I've learned a lot from my fiance over the years. However, I believe his family still sees me as an outsider and they don't invite me to certain things. At times, it feels isolating and it makes me feel unwelcomed. They're also supposed to be in my wedding.
