I'm in the running for two different positions at two large organizations. I've worked mostly for small businesses/start-ups, so this is uncharted territory for me.

It's well documented that big companies have a track record of hiring internal candidates. I have no idea if/how many internal candidates are vying for these positions. Assuming there are at least a few, do I stand a chance? I've done my part in researching the companies and interviewers, sending thank you letters, etc. I am convinced that, should they opt for an external candidate, I'll be in front of the line.

What's your experience been like competing with those on the inside?
