As I embark on my third month of job seeking since being placed on furlough, I can't help but reminisce about simpler times. Some context: I'm a finalist for a position, but the company keeps adding interview rounds. This isn't the first time. Over the past five years or so, I've found candidate vetting processes take months and often involve about 10+ people, including several layers of interviews as well as "tests" or "sample projects." Nope, I'm not interviewing to be the CEO or for any kind of leadership role, but rather for entry- or mid-level positions. It's frustrating to invest so much of my time, energy, and sometimes money (travel costs, etc.). It hasn't always been this way. When I was fresh out of college, 2-3 rounds MAX, including any kind of writing test, was the norm. Anyone else struggling with this?
