2nd round rejection

Abbott / R&D

Recruiter says not a good enough match right now but they want to keep in touch for future opportunities. Is this genuine or a respectful blow-off? First and second round interviews seemed to go really well (Apple ITC4-5 non-SWE).

    It means you are incapable of even simple tasks, this is an early warning sign that the rest of your life will be extremely unspecial. You will disappear into mediocrity and rot in an average grave, nobody will remember you in 200 years. You blew your chance. There is no more “reset button.”

    Just being respectful. It's a standard and nicer way of saying, 'sorry brother you ain't good for us'.

  • I think it means "you blew it but don't worry try again and we'll bring you in with open arms." Recruiter wants you to get hired. Study more and blow them out of the water next time!
