Hi Fishbowl,
I’m a sophomore trying to recruit into finance/banking and have networked with close to 75 people who all have referred/introduced me to other. I’m seeing other students get offers for next summer and I’m starting to get nervous that these “forwards” won’t work or get me an interview. I think I’m ready to move on to the interview stage but don’t know if it’s all going fall into place. Looking for advice or just general help to make I’m not left or falling behind.

Hi everyone. I’m a front end software engineer.

How would you approach asking the recruiter if there are any SWE openings I could be considered for instead ?

How seriously do you weigh a panel interview as a candidate? I had one with a company I felt some interest in, talked to a great recruiter & manager - but when the panel came around each person in the panel asked me the exact same 6 questions (regardless if I’d just demonstrated that in a previous example with the same person) and one of the panel interviewers was so casual he just talked the whole time, went over the limit & just took away the option for me to ask any q’s. Red flags? Or nah?
