If you're applying for other jobs and anticipate that recruiters will reach out to your employer for reference purposes, do you inform them before hand? If so, how? Context I am third yr associate and have only worked with 1 partner so far since graduating college.

Rant: I interviewed at a mid size firm for Senior Tax Associate role and went really well. Partner calls after a couple days to say they want to offer me a job and asked me if I wanted senior 1 or 2. I said senior 2 since I have a years experience as a senior and she was okay with it and discussed salary. She said she will think about the final offer and let me know. A week later she comes back to tell me that my small firm experience probably won’t help much and it would be difficult for me...

All prior interviews went great but the final interview with the partner went less than stellar. Seems as if she thinks I don’t have enough experience.... Is it safe to assume I’m not getting the position?

Currently at v10. Work is great, but its a specialist group, def not a revenue center for the firm. My billing rate is super high. little junior support. Zero mentorship. Basically a billing machine. Def won’t make equity partner. Interviewed with a boutique firm. Great people and similar work! I’m a senior associate. I want to give business development a try (I know I will enjoy it but not sure if I will generate business). Thoughts?

I referred someone and he just sent me a long text that he is cancelling the interview (citing that he had a second thought about the position) after convincing HR and my Partner that this person is interested and can do the job. Note: He called me several times prior to the referral to follow up and even assured me that he was really interested in the position. How should I handle it?

Interview story: I was hired on the spot at an agreed upon verbal offer of $90,000. The partner told me to put in my two weeks notice. It’s a good thing that I did not do that l, as the company called me back the next day and informed me that they were lowering their offer to $75,000. Moral of the story: get it in writing.

Friend of a friend is a senior partner at MM PE fund and wrote emails to the VPs running interviews, recommending me as a "very strong candidate" for an associate role. I'm supposed to set up time with the VPs next week to introduce myself. How should handle this calI? "Hi - here's my background, call me if you're hiring?" don't think they're going to hire me without transaction experience. Fake it until you make it? Maybe propose coming in as an analyst if they say no?

Partners/MDs, did you stay in consulting because you really like what you do, or did not manage to leave (eg, tried to leave but did not find compelling enough opportunities?) I’m one step away from making partner (likely 2 more years). Tried to leave 3 times - every time after a few interviews I came back and continued to suck up, because nothing was compelling enough (eg slower trajectory, more risks, or “lifestyle upgrade” is not much - everyone seems to work hard). Wonder how others think

ISO production partner for a few internal-facing videos for a spirits client of mine. need a director/producer+post (though those can be different partners!). it’ll essentially be a talking head interview + a mixologist creating a cocktail in a bar or studio space, NYC area is best. catch is that because these are internal, we’re looking to keep it lean and around/under $50k. does anyone have a recommendation for partner(s) or sound like something you’d be a good fit for?

shooting a series of videos for a spirits client, with creative centered around “talking head interviews” and mixologists creating a few cocktails. Will be internal sales team-facing as opposed to consumer/brand creative. wondering if anyone has recommendations for a solid production partner in the NYC/Brooklyn area for the shoot (and potentially edit) that could keep a 2-day shoot somewhere in the $40k range? I know, that number pains me as well...

I'm probably overthinking this, but I figured I would ask anyways--what should I swear to a video interview?

Other members of the HR may "pop in" as well, but I was told those would be informal meet and greets.
