Just had an interview and within minutes of finishing it, got a message from recruiter to discuss as to how the interview went? What does that mean? Never experienced this before!

Means nothing if the recruiter is a third party. They just want to get a sense of whether you’re still in the running (aka you didn’t bomb) and if you’re still a worthwhile investment of their time

Not a third party recruiter

It is likely just a "debrief" to check in and see how you feel things went and to reconfirm your interest in moving forward if the feedback from the manager is positive. Some companies have this as a step in the process.

The only surprising part is this happened within 10 minutes of my interview getting over. Never received any message from any recruiter so quickly.

They likely want to give you an offer. That’s been my experience with this situation in the past.

Fingers crossed.

Every time that has happened to me they discuss an offer

Thanks. Not sure if this could be negative as well? Although, in my limited experience, no one has called me personally to talk about a rejection.

Hi all,
I had my technical round scheduled with Capgemini last week. This week I cleared the L1 interview round and HR discussion.

My question is based on AMCAT score is there a possibility that Capgemini would revoke my offer ? Is it an elimination round as they mentioned this a part of Capgemini hiring process?
