For background, I recently superday'd with a firm I'd like to work for... thought I killed it... but got rejected and no interviewer responded when I asked for feedback.
My biggest concern is that I was laid off while interviewing, but didn't tell the people I was interviewing with and I think it might have come up in the background check. I was laid off due to company downsizing, not performance, and each MD had offered to write me a letter of recommendation upon request.
This might not have been the reason I was rejected, but I've never been so confident walking out of an interview so it makes the most sense to me.
With that said, a few additional questions regarding background checks and employment verifications:
- At what point in the process does the employment verification take place? I assume post-interview?
- What does the employment verification entail?
- Any horror stories / general thoughts?
