Yes and no. Bigger companies, that have in-house recruitment teams usually explain the process a bit better. But I do see that candidates don't really understand how the process actually works. Until I became a hiring manager, I didn't, either.

On one end, understanding how the process works is helpful. However, it rarely changes the fact that preparing for interviews helps, luck is often involved (in ways that might be invisible to candidates, even) and it's never a bad thing to stay positive, throughout the process.

I'll probably write more in-detail about this, as it's easy to go down the rabbit hole. If you have questions on specific parts on the process that you'd like to learn about, I'm happy to share what I know.

I think that would help a lot if you do that.
I think devs obsess over things that don't matter for the company itself.
So if you can liberate them from that stress...
