I keep getting rejected by Big 4. I have had, no lie, 9 interviews with Big 4 firms as an Experienced Hire, from internal referrals, in the past 6 months. All with rejections. What's going on here? It seems I do not communicate that my experience is an exact fit for what they're looking for. I don't think my interview skills are bad. But I had interviewed for lower-tier firms and got in. What's going on here? Right now I do compliance, using data, at MUFG.
I’ve always thought of myself as a good interviewer, but apparently the last 5 recruiters I’ve spoken with disagree. What are some resources I can leverage to improve my interview skills?
Question: what made your resume stand out during your application process which eventually landed you the interview? Skills? hobbies? volunteer work? Target school? GPA?
I used a referral to apply to some financial analyst roles. I like how recruiters are willing to personally decline you which opens a dialogue on criticism. I was given resources on improving resumes and interview skills. It seems my resume is in good shape according to the recruiter but I can’t seem to land an interview. Is there anything else left besides a referral and a good resume to get through? I feel like being from the east coast applying to west coast roles is a factor

Two questions: - has anyone chosen (as in not through redundancy) to change employers during the pandemic? - has anyone realised through management actions during the pandemic that they're not aligned with their current employer in terms of values? I was approached by a firm a few months ago and got three interviews deep before they decided I was too expensive for their current needs. However I don't like the values of our current mgmt and am thinking about starting conversation again.
