Currently a senior audit associate at a Big Four. 4 YOE primarily in the Federal Government (DoD) and business process improvement. What are my chances of even being selected for an interview at a MBB in the Washington DC area? Mainly looking at McKinsey.

I'm so frustrated. I've been working for 10 years and I can't get an interview for Senior AD roles, but I get tons of enthusiastic calls for Intermediate ones. Im doing the work of a senior now - concepting alone, working direct with clients, guiding the odd junior - and I do a lot of stuff for the community at large that shows leadership (like conference stuff).

I've had CDs review my book and they say my work is great. Why can't I land a senior job? I want to manage, I have good ideas. WTF?

I have accepted a mid size company 6 months contract staff accountant role. However, I will have interviews with couple of large companies by the same week of my start date. My question is, if I’m lucky enough to get the offer, is it bad to leave the contract after a couple of months? I don’t see any legal restrictions.


Could anyone give me examples of case interviews questions you've had?


I had an interview with 2 senior managers last week for an industry position and it went super well. All behavioral questions. I have an in person interview this week with a director of the group and will be shown around the office. Would you expect this one to be harder or more like trying to figure out if you are a good fit for their group like the previous one? Don’t have any background on what the interview will be like and I really want the job! Any advice would be great.

Hey! I’ve spent the last 4 years working on the “product team” for a large toxic corporation. I want to gauge if my scenario is unique or if this is how other companies operate PMs/POs/SMs before I rage quit and go somewhere else. I am a product owner and scrum master for 3 agile teams. It’s been this way for years. I make $95k. I am literally the only scrum master in the company and 1 of 2 product owners. There is also no product management team so I assume a lot of those duties as well. Help!
