Companies are looking for the desperate. The more you submit to a humiliating process the more they can guarantee they are getting someone they can abuse.
Since I can, any recruiters that contact me I let them know if I decide to move forward with a potential role I will only go through two interview days (not interviewees). No coming back in (or Zooming) for 5-6 different sets of interviews. If the recruiter is not good with that, no dice. I am in a position where I can be picky and I am definitely not desperate. I’m also very expensive but I’m worth it.
Nice to be where I am. So much better than where I was.
