Feeling like shit after getting rejected after final round interview. Self doubt is very real right now.
I had a 3 round interview with a company two weeks ago. They kept delaying their decision for over a week and finally called me today just to let me know they decided to go with someone else. Is it wrong of me to be emotionally drained and depressed over this stuff outcome?
Hi. I’m looking to switch jobs but am concerned that we may be headed for a recession and don’t want to end up in the ‘last in, first out’ situation. Would I be out of line to bring this up in interviews and ask them where their company starts making cuts during tough financial times?
I’ve been struggling to be satisfied with my current job as an AE and interviewing else where, however, everywhere that I interview I keep getting the same feedback: “hiring managers had only positive things to say about you, but we have decided to move forward with candidates who whose skills are more closely aligned to the immediate needs of the team. Please consider us for the future”
I have no idea what I’m doing wrong, anyone have advice?
Does anyone really like Hyatt, Hilton, or IHG?
Context is, I am the highest you can get on Marriott and have not been impressed. I’ve switched ambassadors and still don’t find them worthwhile vs. personal research. Just used the last of my points at a resort for 2 weeks, and it didn’t feel like they even got the basics right. All in all, interested in a change when we go back to traveling.

I'm currently a civil design engineer, and trying to switch to real estate as a Program Manager. I have an interview in a week where they tell me I will have to work on ( for about 3-4 hours ) on an operational case study.
The job is located in Paris and the job is in French .
Does anyone here have any case studies in Real estate that they can share ? and if they're from France, that would be even better.
Thank you in advance !
I desperately want to switch jobs but every time I sit down to prep or network, I have an anxiety attack or I distract myself with my phone or the television. I have pushed out some interviews so many times that I don't know if the companies will agree to one more change. Anyone have any recommendations for how they worked through their anxiety when prepping for interviews?
I had 3 webex interviews with the same link. The first worked great but the final 2 were no shows, the “join meeting” button never lit up when a host starts the meeting again.
HR claimed that the interviewers did in fact go the meetings, but that there could have been a connection issue. As someone who works in digital media, I feel as though the interface is rather simple and the error is not on my part or the app. Have you had any no-show web interviews? Issues similar? What are your thoughts?
I'm applying for a job that wants at least two business or professional references. Thing is my current job is my first job out of college and I don't want them contacting my current employer. Who am I suppose to list as a reference? Leave it blank although they personally asked for references? List college professors? Ask a coworker to be a reference and not spread work I'm leaving?
Yesterday I got proposal at during discussion with project TL I let TL know that I haven't have much experience on cloud neither its mentioned on my resume but I want to learn and he looked cool with that. However after sometime I got ping from director that he want to discuss about cloud with me. I mean really .. ? I told that I have not worked on cloud and he want to discuss about that with me. Project allocation is really becoming shit here day by day. They are hiring for machines not human
Still a contractor and there's a hiring freeze til after the 1st of the year. I want to leverage LinkedIn's browsing for other opportunities and enabling recruiter views so I can shop around. However, my current recruiter would probably see that since they too are on LinkedIn in. How would I go about this in this case?
Is Director level within A&M equivalent to SM1/2 at Big4? Also, I have been told by A&M recruiter that I need to meet 2 more MDs as part of the interview process and I have already met 3 Senior Directors. Any idea what can I expect in my final two interviews and will there be any more rounds?

Maybe an oddly specific question - but has anyone worked with the “Matt Laricy Group”? I’m looking to buy a condo and trying to find a realtor. These guys are popping up on every search I put in with hundreds of perfect reviews. I’m somewhat skeptical as I’m not sure if this is authentic or if they’re just pumping up numbers.

What’s life like working at venture fund? I’ve only been at public operating companies but thinking of making move to VC fund that’s solely funded by one billionaire. Would love to hear pros/cons from others who have gone this route.
No poach agreements (i.e., we agree not to solicit each other’s employees) in customer contracts are a no-no for antitrust reasons, right? A customer is pretty adamant that they want it in but I feel like this is black and white. Would love to know if any of you are seeing them in your customer contracts and whether you’re including “unless prohibited by law” type of language to CYA.
New to working in-house. Where do you view good sample contracts? Ive gotten so used to using practical law/practical guidance/mosaic back at the firm and not quite sure what everyone else uses in-house without breaking bank. Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated!
I’m pretty junior- 3 YOE. I’m seeing a lot of postings for 4 YOE- 6 YOE and then for 6- 10 YOE. I have been passing on applying to some of the 6-10 YOE roles thinking I’m too junior. Am I wrong to do this? I’m a bit confused about whether these requirements are actual or aspirational, esp. since I’m only looking at junior positions

Workstyle Question: If you WFH and try to have some shadow of WLB, do you aim for 7/8-hour days in one go or do you work a bit, take an hour or so off, and then resume in the evenings? E.g. 9-5 or 9-12, 1-3, 8-10? Excluding 5-minute laundry trips and such.
Anyone been asked to prepare a slide presentation for an interview about a recent deal you handled describing legal issues etc? I'm currently in house and so feel like this is potentially asking me to beach privilege and/or confidentiality. I could think back to a deal from when I was at a law firm but no way I remember those deals in sufficient detail. And preparing a 15 minute presentation with slides seems like too much effort for a job I may not get! What have you done in this situation?
