I failed two first interviews at Google for policy-based non technical positions. My recruiter was sympathetic. She said: “You were borderline in basic communication. But strong in experience.”
I am crushed. I fear I will probably not get a call back. But Im also looking for help.
From what it sounds like, I could’ve framed my responses better in the interview. Would anyone here be kind enough to share any online resources, specific YouTube videos that I can view? Id love to develop and practice core responses to questions that might come up in an interview. Or connect with me off-Blind, and help me prepare for such situations.
Im 40M. POC. If you’re wondering why I need to practice some of this: I have a history of working overseas in conflict zones and have PTSD. Sometimes it makes me stutter and I lose my train of thought. I am trying everything I can but I feel this interview bit is beyond my expertise.
And would you be interested in positions that require less communication?
