Why do ppl advise against including a job on your resume if you were only there 6mos or less? That would mean you’d have to lie about how long you were at the place before that or lie about what you’ve done during the time in between. Why not just say it didn’t work out because of XYZ? Why does the employee have to take the hit b/c an employer lied during the interview process. Or it just ended up not being a great fit. Doesn’t make the employee a flake. Am I missing something?

Interviewing with AWS as a L7 - however the automatic email said Senior Solution Architect (L6) when the Recruiter asked me to interview for Principal Solution Architect (L7) - Managerial. I've been taken for rides before where they over promise and then waste time throughout assessment etc. Passed all the aptitude tests and silly work and email tests pretty much just asking if anyone else have experienced this with AWS - is it a valid concern? Or am I being paranoid?

Recruiter sent an email asking time tomorrow to speak on the phone regarding the outcome of my final round interviews. Good sign or bad sign?

Recently laid off, and struggling to land interviews. Anyone have tips or tricks on how to get an independent consultant role?

Hi guys, I had my technical round with TCS yesterday. It went on for 45 mins and I had answered close to 17 of the 20 questions that were asked to me. The interviewer also gave a positive kind of response stating that you will have a managerial round after this and then HR. But nothing has happened after that. I tried emailing the HR who had arranged for my interview but I did not receive a response. Any idea about the TCS hiring process or how else can I reach them to kno the results ?
