Are you getting after interviews? Or are you getting rejected without even getting an interview? If you are interviewing and getting rejected, try asking the interviewer for some feedback. And even if you don’t agree, see what you can do to change it. Ultimately, it’s not your perception of yourself that gets accepted or rejected, it’s the interviewer’s. If you are getting rejected without even getting an interview, then you need to look at your resume. Something is not getting through to the hiring managers. You could be overqualified or underqualified for positions, or you are not applying for the position suited for your experience, or your resume isn’t communicating how you are fit for the role

If you’re getting turned down - keep your chin up. Do think of interviews like dating. It’s not over til you both get your cookies, and you should be interviewing them for the right fit just as much as they are interviewing you. Because it’s PA you have tons of options. And if they didn’t think you were the right fit?.... you didn’t want it anyways. We’re already in miserable jobs, don’t make it worse by forcing a relationship that doesn’t work. Happy hunting! 😘

I haven't been single in a while, but I treat it like a rejection while dating. Just let it roll off your shoulders and move on.

If your getting interviews that means your good on paper. It’s your personality or just not in your stars Right now. Remember go in cheerful and positive. They are looking to see if they want to work with you daily. When things don’t happen, it means something better is coming. So don’t worry!

Is it only me or someone else has also faced a problem while being interviewed by female interviewer.I have faced similar kind of problems in multiple interviews like not even giving a chance to think about code solution and immediately shooting next question,interrupting in the middle while giving an explanation, trying to cover list of questions within short time, some even laughed while I was answering. It kind of feels low and demotivated after going through such evaluation.

Hey fishies, I have a friend who is interested in becoming a consultant but he’s taken an interesting path, would love your advice on any good angles he could take for applying/ types of roles.

He’s a really smart, personable person who I think would be great in consulting. (Continued)

They made some affirmative noises then said the next step would be a design test (one pager) which I would present to a panel of interviewers including the CMO. Anyone else think this is odd?
