I was in training today that talked about this. She said the real reason is "your brand does not communicate that this is the next logical move for you (LinkedIn, resume, interview, presence ect). You did not sufficiently demonstrate in a compelling way that you were the odvious choice for this position.

Also she said in the first 2 minutes you talk, they know.

It was really interesting to hear her perspective and that is something that you can tweak.

Sometimes I don’t know what recruiters think. I was a hiring manager and hiring for an analyst for my team and the recruiter insisted after 3 interviews, that they do a 4th one for “gut check”. Wtf that means? The VP said this guy was a go, everyone liked him, why can’t we just give an offer?!

Thanks for this perspective! There definitely is a bias associated to it and “gut check” just won’t cut it.

I had an interview last week for a firm that I was really interested in. The interview was only scheduled for 30 minutes but went well. The next morning, I had an offer letter in my inbox. I’m now a little concerned that the interview was so short and they sent along the offer prior to getting any reference from me. They want me to send references now and will do a background check but does this seem odd to anyone else or am I looking in to this too much

Hello recruiters, happy Monday!

I want to know why recruiters ask me in an interview if I am looking at other opportunities, or if I am interviewing at other companies. If I say yes they will ask at what stage I am.
