Anyone fail to match a team at Google?

Curious to hear what happened?

I passed HC, but was matched with teams I’m not interested in. The recruiter is looking around now for more teams, but it’s not looking great.

    Pretty common with Google these days. The won't proceed with an offer if you can't find a team but you have 1 year so there's still some time.

    I would suggest being proactive and reaching out to friends at Google to look for openings for your level and then suggesting those teams to your recruiter.

    What level did you pass HC at?

      L4 shouldn't have issues finding a team. Bay Area?

      Seattle. Maybe I’ve been a bit overly selective. Also requested to only look in Seattle (and not Kirkland).

      I too passed HC at Seattle but as L3 and had issues team matching. Eventually got matched to a team in Sunnyvale but would have liked Seattle/Kirkland

      Does that mean you relocated?

      I am based in Canada and would have had to relocate anyways. But yes, I will be relocating to Sunnyvale. Would have preferred Seattle since it's closer to Vancouver.

      that’s hardly any time at all, I would be patient for at least a couple more weeks

      I have a couple other offers on the table so I’m not sure if that would slide

      I’m guessing you let the recruiter know about the offers. If you didn’t you should
