I have an interview tomorrow for a real estate acquisition analyst role with the Managing Partner of a small real estate PE firm. Currently an A2 in audit and feeling a bit under-qualified. I have very little experience in RE modeling but don’t want to explicitly mention that during the interview (for obvious reasons). Any advice on how I should approach my inexperience if asked during the interview?

Hi everyone, I’m looking for some post-interview advice. I had an interview last week that went really well. I emailed a thank you to the partners who were in my interview along with writing samples per their request, to which the managing partner responded, “let’s touch base Monday.” I didn’t hear back yesterday and am wondering whether it’s appropriate for me to follow up and if so, how do I word it? Or do I continue to wait? I want to show interest but not come off too aggressive. Many TIA!

Just need a quick moment to vent! Two weeks ago, I applied for an associate position at a family law firm. I received a response almost immediately from the managing partner, who asked if I was available for a preliminary Zoom interview the very next day. The Zoom interview went exceedingly well, and I was asked to come in for an in-person interview the following afternoon. At the end of the second interview, the managing partner briefly explained the compensation... (CONTINUED IN COMMENTS)

Are they hiring at EY right now? Had a recruiter interview 2 weeks ago for a senior consultant position in the Supply Chain team. No response about the next steps yet. The recruiter tells me that the hiring managers are not responding. Baackground: I was referred more than a month ago. The recruiter reached out to me 4 weeks after submission. Very positive response from recruiter but no movement even after 2 weeks. Is this normal? Or is the impending economic slowdown slowed down recruiting?
