Recruiter just informed me that she will move forward with HC before team match; Last week, she mentioned team match will be done first but not sure what changes. Is this a good sign or I am reading too much into it.

Mostly reading into it. Your packet is probably decently strong enough to go in without a team match. There’s also very little no headcount right now and they probably want to get people preapproved. She’s also trying to improve your team match chance as getting HC approved gives you a leg up on team match if you get through it (vs someone who still needs to go through).


Email your recruiter

Another perspective: any response from the recruiter that does not indicate they are proceeding with another candidate is a positive move forward. Good luck!



Just curious, did you submit a general resume or something? Why would you need a team match? I’m not familiar with Google’s process.

Ahhh thanks for sharing. Hopefully you find a spot soon - I see how that can stressful when you’re so close! 🤞 I’m in the early stages of the process for a specific role, I’m having a good experience so far in terms of response time etc.

But once again not posting


Beyond 2 lines the text in each post card is cut off. I wonder how many lines in the comment section?


Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...

Yeah you're right. It cuts after two lines instead of expanding.

Still not seeing location in the post window when turning it off.

How to lose your job like a pro: 1. Set my LinkedIn profile to “Open to Work”. (To get contacted by recruiters) 2. LinkedIn automatically generated a public post for me to inform everybody (without my knowledge) 3. my manager just liked the post. 4. Now I have an awkward meeting to attend Monday morning AMA 🤦‍♂️


Because of seating I end up next to a partner once or twice a week, this chick probably gets paid (at least) $400k a year for doing nothing, maybe dials into a call and BS’s We’re doing it wrong fam..


Toxic workplace phrases and what they really mean: “Fast paced environment” = no time off and chaos “Need a self-starter” = no training but we still expect results “Must wear multiple hats” = understaffed and underpaid for amount of work “We’re like a family” = no raises


Travel needs to come back when this is all over. WFH is so overrated.


How many of these have you seen? Virtual interviews have made this worst

Representation MATTERS, folks. I can’t begin to describe how relieving it is for me to see people who look like me represented in spaces I want to belong. Thank you for those who understand this.
