Just be able to understand design patterns, current industry technical jargon, and be honest about what you don't know. As long as you go in understanding you won't get the highest salary out the gate, you'll be fine to get a position. The problem we currently have is people getting a garbage boot camp certification, and demanding $100,000 a year.

Interviewer feedback denying me the role was that because I did not say "People trust me and came to me about process issues. Which led me to collaborate with others that I have networked with in the past to find solutions." I did not get the job.

Was this Code-Switching nitpick?

I'm currently in a process for senior associate at a Big4. The process began on July, yet between the first and second interview it took like 3-4 weeks. And between the 2nd and 3rd like 7 weeks.

Then it a 3rd one was scheduled three times (the manager didn't connect to the first 2) and next week I have the last interview with 1 partner. Is the timing normal? Or were they looking for other candidates or what?
