Got notified via email last night that they wont be moving forward with a position post loop. The role was something different than I do today (post sales vs presales) and one of the interviewers even said right when he walked in “dont be surprised of you get recycled based on your resume”. This all came about via a recruiter on LinkedIn.
Not the end of the world, but curious if theres any point to find/apply to other roles that more closely align to my experience immediately, or wait 6+mo? The email didn’t say anything about a cool down time frame, just that they would put my resume back in the pool. Obviously no feedback on how the loop went, appears to be a canned email about my impresive resume/qualifications, I personally thought it went well, no major oof moments.
And hiring here can be frustrating and maddening, on our side too. Last week we had a rock solid candidate. This guy crushed every question I had without hesitation and was very well-versed both in knowledge and how he presented himself. Others on my team felt the same. He was a no-hire because our “bar raiser” was a PM who just couldn’t “earn trust” with the candidate for a myriad of subjective non-reasons. Amazon PM’s always find ways to piss me off in some capacity.
You might have gotten “one of those” interviewers
