Don’t mention it in the interview at all. Just say something like, it’s not what was implied or promised during my interviews. Say nice words, but convey what you really mean. They’ll get it.

I was once interviewed by this Startup company. Everything went well and I passed all 5 rounds on online interviews from manager to VP level technical as well as management and had no issues. Out of blue this team lead reached out who specifically wanted to interview another round. Just after that I got rejection. And when I reached back for reasoning/feedback. They didn’t had anything to add other than they found another guy in local guy for a remote job !!

Hope this is ok to post here.. How helpful do you think referrals are? How successful have you been in getting interviews from referrals?

I'm curious what others have experienced.
