You should be treated as an adult, so you should be able to say that you have a conflict, personal engagement, external appointment, etc.

Hello fishes, How many days does Deutsche Bank HR take to roll out the offer letter? One of my close friends attended the interview on 24th of January. The next day got a call from the HR team that they will roll out the offer letter very soon but 26th Jan. being a holiday, she informed my friend to wait for some days. Now my friend who is waiting for the offer letter wants to know when she can expect the offer letter and she can proceed for putting her paper in her current organisation.

Recruiter from Amazon reached out to me for an L6 role. After the telephonic screening they are saying they will consider for same work type but L5. She also said if I really perform over and above in onsite interviews I may once again be considered for L6. Is this true? If so, what differently should I do?

I’m sorry but if after 2-3 interviews, you can’t determine whether a candidate should be extended an offer, re-think your hiring practices. No way should anyone have to meet so many people and asked the same questions, for a job where you’re interviewing for a VP/Director role, or technical role.

Welp. Feeling like a failure. Made the jump to consulting and I feel like maybe I’m just not cut out for this line of work. I’m having a hard time breaking into the clique in the project I got staffed on, my new ideas are tossed to the side because “it’s always been done this way”, I’m a consultant but i keep getting stuck with just formatting slides and sheets. My +1’s seem to be the only thing that keep me going. It’s probably just one of those days but I am counting down till roll off.
