How easy is it to lie about your job title when interviewing for jobs outside of big 4? For example, I’m a 2nd year associate, can I lie about being a senior?
Is a side gig as a fashion model worth highlighting in my portfolio? I’m a senior in college and will be applying to jr copywriter jobs soon. Cont’d in comments
Had an interview with a recruiter who laughed at me when I said I was looking for a senior role. Laundry service, I’m sorry, but you should start hiring people who respect people.
My salary just got frozen @ 55.5k (SALT Tax, 1 year of experience). Should I start interviewing for other jobs? Worth it to stay 1 more year and “maybe” make senior? (PwC is 3 yrs to senior standard, 2 yr is early) I have a Master’s in Accounting, and have 1 more CPA test then I’ll be done. Not sure if I have a strong enough resume to receive decent exit opportunities as a first year associate. I’m about to have busy season again and work 60,70,80,90 hour weeks at my low salary. Please advise!!
Just heard of the story of a senior who was fired because she was interviewing at a new firm, and this new firm called her current firm for references. Obviously they (cont’d)...
I found out this week during an exit interview that a senior male ex colleague had been regularly sexually inappropriate, physically and verbally for over a year to this individual.
When u interview at a smallish agency where growth has stalled and 40% of the senior team has been there 15+ years (or their entire career... intern up) do you take that as a sign of loyalty? Or run?
Should I feel offended, thankful, both? Very senior creative job. Just navigated months of phone interviews, out of dozens of candidates I made the final 3 flown in for more/multiple interviews (cont)
Need perspectives: I’m interviewing with a senior leader at Company A in a few days. I realized that about 3-4 years ago, I worked very briefly with this individual when he was an employee of Company B and I was working on a client project for them. I know we aren’t supposed to name our previous clients on interviews, but if he happens to recognize my name and asks if I did work with Company B before, would you all say yes, and essentially name a previous client on an interview?
Had my last round of interviews for a client side senior executive role and had to meet a woman in a different dept as a courtesy... I was strongly advised by numerous people to be less confident,
What do you say when asked about compensation range during the phone screen / 1st interview? If it's an online app I leave it blank but when a person asks I just tell them a range because I don't know what else to say. I'm worried that I might miss out on a higher salary by telling them my range (85-90k for senior accountant in HCOL city).
Currently without employment and in a bit of a dilemma: My non preferred company did a bait and switch with the role, took a month to get me the e-contract with start date TBD (2-3 weeks down the line). My preferred company is interviewing super slowly, the position is senior, pay is great and commute is lower. Ok to tell non preferred to wait longer or will it make HR mad at me and take the offer away?
Should a college senior start applying to junior positions once they graduate or a couple months before? Or should they be reaching out to recruiters/CDs for potential non-posted gigs?
Applied to a role and got asked to interview but I just discovered the salary is lower than I was expecting. The company has a more senior role that I fit which pays what I am looking for. Should I tell the recruiter that I am going to apply for a different role that better aligns with my experience? If yes, what’s the best way to word that 👀 The second role is in my current city so maybe I could mention that as a reason.
What is “carry”? I’m midway through the interview process for a senior role at a PE firm and they are offing carry. I no nothing about this - what is it and how do I negotiate? Thank you! 🟢🤘
Starting a new job, remotely, on Monday. I’ll be meeting the team through 1:1s throughout the week and am particularly nervous about conversations with the more senior members of the team, MDs and Directors, whom I didn’t meet during the interview process. What should the focus of these conversations be? Appreciate any insight, experience or tips! If you’re a Manager and above, what are you looking for in a new hire introducing themselves remotely?

Has anyone had luck in negotiating a higher title at a big pharma during the process? Like going into a Senior manager interview asking for AD or director? Assuming you have the qualifications.

2 yrs in audit at a top 8 firm. I’m beginning the interview process at a highly visible startup that is benefitting from the impact of Covid. Would be an Acct role, no senior title.
New to EY Parthenon...I just realized there are significant salary distortions between legacy SO members and new joiners...how a S3 with years in the firm can make less than new hired S1? - it is because they came with a lower salary from his original team?
That rush of adrenaline and pure uncertainty when you’re pitching a new positioning, approach, and language to clients
How do you feel about use of excessive force (police brutality?) against protestors? Can we blame them for being on the edge and trying to err on the side of safety by approaching ALL protestors as if they are a threat since they can’t distinguish btw peaceful and non-peaceful protestors?
Ladies! What kind of gift would you appreciate? My old boss wrote me a recommendation for business school, so I’d like to send her something in the $50-$100 range as a thank you.

Need some advice looking for exit opportunities/networking in Los Angeles. Currently finished all sections of the CPA and attempting to network with recruiters on LinkedIn but no responses/connections yet. Been applying on job sites but any tips would be appreciated.
Can anyone recommend an app or software for tracking billable hours to make it easier to put together and submit timesheets? I work for a small firm and all of our billing/invoicing is done manually. Every couple of weeks I go through my notes to type up my timesheets and I’m wondering if there’s an app that can record my time as I work and then put that all together categorized by client to submit for invoicing. I don’t need to note how much a particular client pays per hour.

It’s really something when a productive discussion on here gets removed. Do posts only get removed when someone reports them? Smh. We had some good debate and discussion going on here. Sigh.
Desi 🐠 Don’t you guys believe that we as a community can’t disagree with each other peacefully? I understand we all have very strong opinions but the hostility towards each other is something we can avoid, isn’t it?
