This is my first time interviewing since coming out of college 8 years ago… how does anybody have time to look for other opportunities?

like

what position is this ...this seems too less .. where is the technical round?

like

Yes. I did 10 interviews for an SM level non technical role. Market is hot so they can be super super selective and nit picky

like

Honestly, for a lot of roles, yes. I had the recruiter chat, the VP chat, two 1 hour long case interviews, a 60mn timed exercise, another talk with the VP and a second VP, then offer. Then we negotiated salary and I had two calls with current team members to dig deep on culture and fit. “Not having to shoehorn (and hide) interview prep and calls into my day while also working full time for an inept manager” is a top 5 positive thing about my impending exit.

Oh man

I had recruiter chat, Group Director chat, Director chat, Senior Director chat, peer chat, and case interview panel for the recent job that I got. 🤦🏾‍♀️

Yep - and when you have slow moving processes like Google or Microsoft, it can feel like forever

Yup and just to not get the offer(s) anyway

For those willing or bold enough to share: For EOY reporting are you bench marking against 2020 or 2019 or both? What about for projecting 2022? I’m torn looking at 2020 as an outlier or including both years to be more objective? We had a good year this year and it compares fine next to 2020 numbers. My thinking here is events impact our lead gen and revenue numbers and as we all know this year events slowly started up. Looking forward to 2022 having even more events 🤞 Hopefully no variants
