Got my revenge by passing onsite... but I feel empty and unsatisfied

Dec 8, 2019 38 Comments

I was mistreated by a company and got rejected badly after interviewing with them. 2 yrs later I came back under a different email (so nobody recognized me) as a seasoned engineer with 200+ LC solved. Crushed the on-site and rejected their shitty offer. Explained the situation to the recruiter.

I thought I'd feel better...but I realized how petty this is. I encourage others to not take this process so seriously. Best of luck to you all. Stay calm and do your best. It is not worth it to obsess. Even if you get rejected, it's okay. Just move on...

    Well, that's not even revenge. The recruiter is likely different. Half of the Eng team is probably different. The bosses probably did not even hear this story.

      I think it was more of an ego thing. Realized it was stupid after the fact...

    After 2 years, why couldn't you apply with your real email id ?

      He applied previously with that email. He used different one so they wouldn't recognize they rejected him previously.
