We talk with Martin, who interviewed for a Sr. Financial Analyst position with Amazon and received an offer, only to turn Amazon down to start his own startup, and later interview with Amazon again for a different position of Sr. Business Analyst.
"I've come to realize that qualified and experienced candidates get rejected for all kinds of legitimate reasons outside of their control. It might be COVID. In this case, by way of example, the jobs are getting filled in six weeks. It was still posted after five months, I just happened to notice that. And what that told me was that they probably cut the budgetary authority because of COVID. Or there were situations, I've had situations where I've had phone screens that didn't move forward, even though the interviewers seem to like me a lot, because, I found out later on, just by happenstance, that they already filled the position with an internal candidate that got on site before I did. Someone that is rejected from Amazon, if they have all of the other qualities and all the other experiences, one or two rejections shouldn't dissuade them."
