Happy New Year all.This cycle is getting old.
I am assuming that it was the final round that did me in. The person just didn't like my answers or didn't connect with me or whatever. It certainly makes sense because interviewing has costs and going through multiple rounds if you already decided you're not hiring a person is wasteful. But what do I know?
I'm running out of places to apply. Even with remote work, some places won't hire if you don't live in a state where they have an office because of tax purposes. And there have been so many layoffs that even if anyone is hiring, the competition is fierce.
