What's the most frustrating part of the job search today?
For me, the worst is when companies feel they can string you along, baiting you with their supposed interest in hiring you, only to never actually commit with an offer. I interviewed at one media company that made it quite clear they wanted to hire me, but they were restructuring at the time. Still, they didn't want to lose me as a candidate — so they essentially kept me around for months, sending me on a series of interviews for multiple positions that led nowhere. I was simultaneously interviewing at other orgs but did have a lot of interest in working for this particular brand, so I let myself be breadcrumbed for awhile before ultimately accepting another job. Two months after I'd started that job — so, six months after I'd first interviewed with the media org — an editor there reached back out asking me to come in and interview for yet another role. As you can imagine, I passed!!
