Google ruined my marriage!

I had planned to get married this year, if I got a job at Google. However, the hiring manager didn't find me a fit for the team/clients they have and hence I'm not getting married now.

    If that stopped you from getting married, I'd only send a thank you note to the hiring manager.

    Is the hiring manager your fiancé?

    In similar boat. Was planning another child. Didn’t get the offer. Looks like he won’t be getting a sibling for Christmas.

      Nah. I cleared the technical rounds before the manager one.

      OP passed the technical.
      GOOG Hiring manager would be would be a fool not to take OP.
      OP even let them know nonverbally, and STILL no match.

      OP
      It wasn't a pure development role so the technical rounds weren't too challenging. By the way, they haven't been able to close that position for many months, it seems. Moreover, some of my interviewers also seem to have changed roles. I wonder, why such standards still!

    You should be thankful. If that ruined your plans for marriage you should just get good.

    Google is not the destination. However your obsession with google is unhealthy.

      Weakest link. All those great ones at FB didn't prevent the photos deal. Also, google maps doesn't work for me right now, so even more justification.

      I'm using mapquest now

    Time to reflect and see if there’s a pattern in your life. Do you usually link unrelated things and be self-detrimental ?

      Lol. No. The role was the only better opportunity I could have in the location of my preference. And I wanted to take a step ahead in my career before considering marriage.

      Taking a step ahead in your career before marriage .. I understand and agree with you man ..
      But fine .. the sooner you get over past the better it is .. plan really well further .. all the best!

      Yeah, I get that. But it took a lot of questions and comments to get to the bottom of this. It really wasn't clear that it is your choice to not marry, because you want to be ready.

    • Microsoft / Eng SwitchJobs
      Exactly .. OP should have given a proper background to the post & without a misleading title.

      If she's not working, why won't she move to say Bangalore or wherever you are currently employed?
      And how old is she? Does she have ambitions to work? Is she in a field where most opportunities are in Mumbai?

    Can you give me the name of the hiring manager? I think he/she deserves a peer bonus. I'll put it in tomorrow.
