Post UG. Started getting these interviews 1-2 years in. Most of them are “entry level” into FAANG but they required 1-3 years consulting experience. True managerial roles with direct reports at tech companies would require a lot more experience like 5-8 years

Found out recently that I am not receiving an offer following final round interview at Big4. Recruiter I’ve been in contact with has been a great help and told me afterwards that they’d be more than happy to pass my resume over to other team leads looking to staff. Is this a common occurrence or was it a kind, common courtesy send-off to our time working through the hiring process together?

2 years ago I decided to chop my salary for WL balance, and it worked - depression became manageable. But losing all that $ and momentum was painful. My current job is in Covid danger, but I’m also in the final rounds to return to double the salary, but double the work. I don’t know, what a shitty choice.
