The depression is really starting to set in...it feels so impossible to even get noticed, let alone get an interview and then actually get hired. I’m trying to stay positive but it’s really hard.

It’s tough out there right now. I was laid of a few months ago and I know exactly what you are talking about. No one emails back, a few meetings here and there, but it’s been dead. I try to work and think on it a few hours every day and then enjoy the time off. It’s ok to feel depressed and not always positive, just don’t let it consume you. Hang out with your friends more. That’s helping me a lot.

Hi guys! I had an interview last Saturday with the CEO for an EA role (that was the 3rd interview). The company rushed the process for me because they knew I had another offer. The first 2 interviews went extremely well that’s why they rushed & asked the ceo to interview me on a Sat. morning. Huge common point: The CEO and I are both French. The interview went kinda weird… it was less than 15min. Looked distracted/ not prepared. When I asked him questions he barely elaborated. Comments⬇️

Was I wrong to expect in-house recruiter to understand the differences and similarities between in-house-recruiting, professional search and retained executive search?
