My recruiter told me that the employer didn’t think I had enough seniority to move forward but that they would like to continue with me for another (intermediate) role.
While I was disheartened about it, I got really annoyed at my recruiter who doesn’t probably give a rat’s ass about me. My tone was giving me away. He was frustrating me, and it’s easy to do that especially when he forgets about details that I tell him that are important to note.
"I’m okay to proceed with the next round, but I would like to know if the next round is related to the last interview I had in the previous round (4 interviews in the afternoon)."
"Okay, so I’ll let them know that it would be the last interview for you."
“What? I didn’t say that. (Proceeded to repeat).”
I’m assuming he said what he said because he didn’t understand what I was talking about because he didn’t remember that I told him I had 4 interviews in one round.
While being described as not senior enough was a little disappointing, it drove me to search online about introverts at job interviews. Why I did that was because I feel that I may not interview well.
I do think that I’m “senior enough” in my role. I’ve worked with older and more tenured people in my line of work and I find that I’m usually at par, if not better skilled, at the trade. I’m pretty smart, efficient and effective but because I’m an introvert (INTJ), I don’t talk about how “great” I am. But I digress…
Anyway, I haven’t heard back about a schedule and I’m hoping that I get the info at least a couple of days prior. A part of me is starting to not care anymore though…not good.
