He assigns writing test due noon mon. product descriptions, manifesto, article outlines w/ questions for talent and internal teams. i submit test but don’t get confirmation. call tues bc first scheduled interview is wed. he says test is good and I should be ready to go in wed, thurs, or fri.

wed comes—he cancels. thurs comes—he pushes back to later time, then cancels. fri comes—he cancels. 2 weeks go by. he says client never confirmed interview requests. 2 more weeks go by. he says hiring for the role is getting pushed to next month but i’d get first priority when it opens up. a different role opens up and we repeat this process w/ weekend test. 4 weeks go by. i send a couple follow-up emails. no response. i hear from a friend of mine outside the agency that the recruiter was fired.

A friend received feedback after his McKinsey case interview saying some of his answers were not “detailed enough”.

Has anyone received that feedback before and how did you improve the next time?

Hi everyone. I’m a front end software engineer. I’m interviewing next week for a solutions engineer at a company I really like, which I mistakenly applied for as I saw they needed ReactJS, JavaScript, HTML/CSS.

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