Hey C1 fam! I’m so confused! I’ve been applying up and out of my department and it’s decline after decline! My previous manager is confused why I’m still sitting in a chair behind a desk as am I! I can’t seem to get a single damn interview! Not sure what’s going on!

    It’s all about who you know. Unfortunately, being good is not good enough.

    What have your cross cal results been? Unfortunately if you get stacked at the bottom even once your C1 career goes to shit. Also are you networking with those managers as well before you apply to their team? Grabbing coffee and kissing ass? We’re so political here that just a bit of sucking up goes a long way.

      I’ve unfortunately noticed that as well...it’s sad that’s the way we have to act to be promoted....not for the work we put in everyday

    Maybe try not ending every sentence with an exclamation mark! People might write back this way! It makes you look bad at language!

      Hi. I'm desperate.

      Can I get a referral at Lyft, please? 😅

      I'm a hard-working team player who's going to work his butt off on leetcode next month or two. Have lead new initiatives in my current role and have been top rated in my performance reviews so far, every year.

      OP, Apologize for hijacking the thread.

    Reach out to hiring manager and recruiter before you apply. Sometimes it's a old req or they have extended offer already.

      I’m thinking about it at this point! Everyone around me (even those who work A LOT LESS) are being promoted up and it’s crazy to me!

    • Yeah, sometimes you just need a fresh start.

    Ask for feedback from the teams/hiring managers that are declining your application?
