After a recent layoff, I’d been interviewing for a Director of Software
Engineering role (2nd line manager with 50+ people) for 2+ months. Your
Level Up class has empowered me to pass all the behavior interviews. As a
result, I got an offer 6 weeks into the search. A good company, a great fit
but lowball.
Yesterday I got a desired offer. The odds were against me. The other
finalist has done it longer and led bigger teams. Their final (and deciding)
round was a presentation. Much of my deck content was inspired by your
Level Up class.”
