How badly do you want the job? Treat it like it’s part of your job. Put up some ghost meetings on the calendar and get to it :)

Well, that’s a diff issue.

I probably put 12-15 hours into my Salesforce panel presentation. Well worth it, but just because I really wanted the job.

Spend as much as you want but honesty in my experience these companies may still ghost you afterwards so manage your expectations well. Good luck!

They rejected me with no feedback on my case that I spent 15 or so hours on.

OP - Is it for a Texas based healthcare firm?

No, it's for a consulting firm
