Startup changed strategies and I’m now without a job despite being there for just a few months. What’s the best way to frame this for upcoming interviews?

Working a startup has well known inherent risks. Most people in the industry will understand that. Simply state what you were hired to do and why that changed. That should suffice.

Hi fishes! Nagarro declined the counter offer letter ₹33,00,000 + shares worth 4.5LPA

I've 6+ yrs experience (mobile dev.)

Nagarro offered 18LPA. Initially I told HR for 22 but he mentioned 18 into their internal portal to their senior so after clearing all interview rounds I got 18.

When I asked the HR, he told me to accept it for now and bring the counter offer letter so they can revise offer letter.

But now they declined. Weird.

At startups is there an expectation that people are coached as they progress in terms of seniority? Or are they expected to learn themselves?
