Man clears Google interview but fails tenant interview in Bengaluru. Here’s why
A man on LinkedIn shared how he failed to clear tenant interview in Bengaluru despite clearing the interview with Google.
Relocating to a new city and hunting for a rented apartment can be daunting for many. From packing up your belongings to finding a place to live to unpacking and settling in, moving requires a lot of work. However, if you are in Bengaluru, you must also crack a tenant interview before the owner rents out his property to you. Recently, a man took to LinkedIn to share that he failed to clear a tenant interview in Bengaluru despite clearing the interview with tech-giant Google.
“I cleared the Google interview but failed the tenant interview in Bangalore. Here’s my short journey to clearing tenant interviews,” wrote Ripu Daman Bhadoria on LinkedIn, who works at Google as an Engineering Manager. He then shared how he failed a tenant interview in Bengaluru despite clearing a Google interview. “Last year (2022), when I relocated back to #Bangalore from #Seattle, I searched for a decent place to rent, but it was extremely difficult due to the high demand post-COVID. Given the demand, many apartment owners started interviewing prospective tenants. I was caught off guard as I miserably failed my first-ever tenant interview. That was a moment of awakening for me as I realized that there are harder interviews to clear than Google,” he added.
He even asked the landlord to share feedback on his ‘interview performance’ and any ‘red flags’ they noticed. “The landlord was transparent in sharing feedback that they believed I was likely to buy a house, given that I work for Google. I never thought that working at Google could be so disadvantageous,” he continued.
In the next few lines, Bhadoria shared that he successfully cleared the next tenant interview in Bengaluru. He even asked people to reach out to him for ‘tenant interview experience’.
