Managing multiple interview processes can be tricky. You don’t want to miss out on opportunities, but you do want to spend the majority of your time on the most promising prospects.

Here are some things to consider when determining which opportunities are worth spending your time on:

  • Consider how much time you can afford to dedicate to your job search with your current schedule. You need to allow sufficient time to prepare for and be present in interviews, as well as for technical assessments and possibly visiting offices. As mentioned above, this could be three or more hours for each interview step.

  • Once you know how much time you have, you’ll know how many interview processes you can undertake.

  • After every interview, reflect on your current options and rank your processes according to how many you can do at a time.

  • Rank each opportunity against your job search goals and either pause or close the loop with companies that don’t meet the threshold.

Your talent advisor is there to help. If you’re struggling to prioritise your options or manage your time, reach out to them.
