Am a strategist with 4 years experience in NYC interviewing for senior strategist roles. What should I be asking for salary?

Interviewed for a senior strategist role and as we were griping about how clients can be, I said “oh yeah well the dream job is to never work with clients again right?!” And the recruiter just got back to me that “the role requires client interaction so that’s a dealbreaker”. I feel so dumb for getting comfortable during an interview to joke like that.

Opinions on pre-hire assignments? I’m in the final stages of interviewing for a senior strategist job and they’re asking that I put together a robust presentation to refresh a program. They want me to think through messaging, channels, competitive, measurement, etc. I then have to present my strategy in an hour long meeting with the hiring manager and higher ups.

Is this normal? I’ve never been asked to complete something so comprehensive for an interview process.

I had several interviews with Deutsche bank and they have verbally offered the job about 2 months ago. I noticed on Workday Tuesday the status says "offer in progress". In the time between, I did get some calls the offer is still in progress and is slowed down due to manager out of office (among other things). How long should I wait until I need to call back and get an update? And this type of situation commonplace?

I currently have an offer for an accounting position that has a great pay increase from my current position but I’m also in the middle of interviewing and have one last round with another company for a financial analyst position that I would prefer over accounting. However the final rounds won’t be until first week of January due to the holidays. Could anyone give me advice on what to do? The pay for the second position would be slightly higher than my current offer.

Lazard Hello I need some advice. Basically, I am a newbie to IB and I got a first phone interview for an IB Analyst position. It went great and I could feel it. They said there would a super-day. I would like to well prepare for this super day given my background is not finance. Where should I find appropriate materials to study? I may or may not be invited to a super day but I would rather be well prepared. Thanks!

I got this following message from AWS recruiter today for the TAM role and want to clarify few things “This is a hands on technical position . You do not need to be an AWS, or Cloud expert. We can teach you AWS. We are looking for technical engineers who bring wide breadth and deep depth in a handful of technical domains.”
1. I thought TAMs are more about relationship management. Do I need to code in interview or job ?
2. Is aws knowledge really not as mandatory?
