      Operations Manager

      I’m currently interviewing at 2 companies. I’m in the final round for Company A, and probably have another 2-3 interviews for Company B I’m more interested in the role at Company B. How can I leverage Company A to hopefully have Company B expedite their hiring process?

      Senior Manager

      Is anyone familiar with organizations that use the interview process to assign candidates strategic work or business cases just to get free consulting with no intention on hiring them? How often does this happen? Have you been a part of this type of thing before? What are some signs you can give candidates to ensure we dont get taken advantage of?


      Project Manager

      Tokenism and future interviews - how can one avoid it? Interviewed for a Telecom position,at end of interview the Manager says, this is not my position, I am interviewing for another manager. Got a rejection from HR. Asked for feedback, they said No Negative feedback affected your candidacy. We had an overwhelming number of well-qualified candidates and had to make some tough decisions. Note: I have worked for this company for 14+ years in the past, done that job, and am more than qualified.
