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?

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!!

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?

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?

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.

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?

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.
