Hey guys, I’ve recently started interviewing for a position outside my firm. I was wondering who makes the decision to hire? Is it the interviewers (MD’s, VP’s, analysts) or is it the recruiter that reached out to me who gets the final say? I’m crushing it with the directors, Vp’s but not really talking too much sith the recruiter. Please help

Hi everyone, I kindly ask for suggestions here. I was been referred by my friend to financial service tax in EY.After a call with the MD, he said that my background doesn’t align with theirs because they usually hire Staff1 from campus recruiting, they don’t hire Staff2 and I’m not qualified for Senior1. I am a staff accountant in a local public accounting firm for two and a half years with CPA. Im having a interview with EY recruiter soon! Any suggestions on tax lines? Or tips for interview?
