It is no secret that the average companies hiring practices are outdated and ill-conceived. 

 

Candidates are often treated poorly during and after the interview process. 

 

How should you handle that?

 

Be respectful at every turn, but have your boundaries.

 

Show up, do a great interview, be grateful, ask when you might hear from them.

 

If the company doesn’t call or message you when they said, move on.

 

If the company expects free consultancy work or rounds and rounds of interviews…

 

Write it off. What’s next?

 

If they do come back, sure you can see what they have to offer.

 

Countless people hinge on one potential role and waste months, where they could be actively networking and searching for other significant roles.

 

Don’t let your career be contingent on one badly organized company that treats people poorly.
