After reading this I have one general question: How do you think all the other people who actually got hired for Google and Bloomberg did? They must’ve done better than you! This article smells like you need a break from doing what you do, because you don’t seem to like it anymore. It’s not the hiring process that’s broken (okay, it’s weird) but you seem fed up and recruiters pick up such emotions the second you walk into the door. They see faces like yours day in, day out. They’ve judged everything about you the first second you walk in, the rest is just an aside. The result is this poor article.
