Candidates tell stories online of how they were forced to undergo time-consuming, arduous interview processes, only to get rejected. Sometimes employers don’t even offer a rejected candidate feedback or a rejection email, despite having an interview process that requires a lot of preparation.
Some firms require candidates to undergo up to five or six interviews, meeting some interviewers more than once. With interviews themselves sometimes consisting of presentations, competency tests, tasks, and the more conventional Q&A section. There’s no hiding that candidates are spending more and more time preparing to impress recruiters.
