      Onsite in June, did it take 2 months for HC decision? I though team matching happens after HC approval.

      @vmware no my recruiter didn't send me to HC right away. Tried getting me a team first, gave up and sent me to HC. Ended up passing HC

      Did your recruiter say why team match would be easier in early October ? Do they have new headcount opening up in October ?

    1) June on-site
    2/3) Had many interviews for MTV office, but I decided to go for Zurich or London
    4) 3 YOE / no system design
    5) Application “on-hold”. Constantly communicating with him. At least he is not ghosting me
    6) after so much time preparing what would you think? The last mile is definitely the worst part. My work performance dropped to zero. And it’s super annoying applying for other companies.
