Asked by Kelcie on May 30, 2018

How do second or third round interviews generally differ from first round interviews? Will I meet with more senior-level people or be asked different types of questions, or should I just expect more of the same?

This may vary from organization to organization and may also vary between hiring groups with a particular organization. Typically I see second or third interviews as more of a meet-and-greet with other members of the team that you'll be hired into but this has been my own personal experience. In your situation, I would suggest that if you are invited for a second or third interview, don't be afraid to ask what you can expect in that second/third interview. Asking questions shows that you're engaged, you seek for understanding, and you're wanting to set yourself up for success by preparing in any way you can.
