Why do I bomb interviews for jobs I really want and not for my top choices 💀🫠

Gotta interview at places you are kinda interested in to get your practice up. It’s just a matter of reps. Also helps you learn about the market. Practice makes perfect.

I agree. I would interview well at all firms/corporations the same way. Practice makes perfect and the more interviewing you do, you won’t bomb your ideal job interview. (I’ve even interviewed for jobs that I knew I wouldn’t take because I was overqualified and the pay was way off, but just as practice lol)

Job interviews are one of my (few) talents, this may sound weird but I treat it like I’m playing a role of whoever my best version of myself is. Job interview me is super confident, thrives in social settings, is bubbly and friendly, and is cool calm and collected. Anyone who knows me IRL knows I’m a high strung perfectionist with social anxiety who needs external approval and has resting bitch face. I’ve learned to really enjoy job interviews because I am able to chill out a bit by just thinking of it as playing a role for a day. Obviously I am still myself, but the me I wish I was normally. I guess a “fake it til you make it” situation?

And the other commenters are right, interview as much as you can!

Does anyone have any insight on data scientist interviews at Booz Allen/ average salary in the dmv area? Right now I only have a 30 min slot and the recruiter made it sound like this was it. I don’t know how you could do a semi technical round in 30 min.

In desperate need of referrals/recommendations for a reverse recruiter or headhunters that work for job seekers rather than employers. I’ve been job searching and interviewing for 2 years now and I can’t take it anymore! I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, the most it’s taken in the past was 5 months to get a job. I’ve spent money on resume services and a career coach so I’ve also invested money that’s landed me nowhere. I can’t think of anything else to try 😔

Do I go back to my old firm? 3rd year lit. Been at new firm since start of the year, $130k.

I told friends at old firm I wasn’t happy in new city and new firm is much more demanding (1900+ vs. 1750) and several partners are becoming intolerable. Gossip at old firm led to managing partner calling me to offer $110k to return and do the exact work I want to do. Worth it?

I'm wondering if this is accepted practice. My firm has a computer monitoring system that takes pictures of what you're working on every 5 seconds. The firm's HR/office manager then uses this to determine if you're working while you're in the office. Ex) I have outlook opened on my computer, but I'm inactive on my computer b/c I'm reading a paper file. This individual will walk into my office to see why I'm not 'working'. Getting pretty fed up.
