Rejection does not indicate a fatal deficiency with you application. Shake it off. But do spend time and reflect if there were any aspects of the interview you could have handled differently and keep that in mind for the next one. Chin up!

Keep in mind that it may not have been anything you did. They might have a better candidate. Stay positive and keep applying. You'll find the right role

I've also been getting all the way to the end of interview processes and they either can't pay enough or they went with another person... Each experience is a learning process!

Did they give you feedback? If not, ask for it. Remain professional and see it as a learning experience. And thank them for the feedback.

A recruiter asked me for a range before she can move forward with my application despite telling me I don't have a number and am flexible to negotiate with an HR offer. But she is so adamant and wants me to give a range before even having an opportunity for the interview. And will not move forward if I don't give a number. I feel this is so wrong!! How do I talk to her?

Hi Fishes,
My total experience is 5 in QA, I attended Deloitte interview. First round was technical and it went quite well, they asked lot of theory questions.

So my query is will they call me for next round?I really wanna get selected since Deloitte is mydream company

Kinda unique situation. I received an offer to return to the company I was with before b school (small professional services firm, not well known) after over a year in consulting post-MBA. The offer is for head of strategy and ops, same salary as my current salary (~200k), plus options and 25% bonus. I know the people there and like them a lot, and the role is interesting as they enter high growth mode and pivot to becoming more of a product company through M&A. My concern is (cont. in comments)
