I’m sorry to hear that. Was it a partner interview ie more conversational and fit-based?

See the issue with interviewing consultants is we need to have a lens of ‘where can I place this person’? Without a specialism I’m not sure ‘good business sense’ is enough. You need to make it easy for the hiring partner to see pound signs on how you could deliver revenue

Have mixed feelings about my SO lately, and hope to get some guidance. He's currently a tech consultant, but when we started dating, he already said he wanted to go into software dev. 3 years in, he only started to look around last year, of which did not past the few interviews he had. I'm just worried that he'll never get into software, given he's already past his 20ties. I'm worried he'll always be behind, but also not sure if a breakup is justified over this

Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
