Got final interview with 2 ppl from Deloitte yesterday, 1 is a manager and the other is a partner. I think I did well with the manager.For the partner, he asked 2/4 questions that I did not prepare so did not answer as well as expected. He stopped asking me after just 10 mins with those 2 questions. Given that I have some strengths from my resume ( high gpa, passed cpa) and fluent communication,friendly manner. Any hope? Position: Audit staff.
2nd year audit staff here. If I want to exit audit to go into a Sr. Financial Analyst role or industry accounting role, should I start applying right after my senior promotion? I really don’t want to do a year of audit as a senior.
Need some advice, I’m an experienced audit staff looking to transition to FDD or Valuation after busy season. Does it make sense to make the jump at the staff level or should I wait for the senior promotion? Also which one of these two areas would give me a more valuable/transferable skill set? I’m not sure what I want to do long term yet, but I know I want to work in a client facing role and not exit to industry.

Just hit the 1 year mark as a post-MBA consultant at a T2 and realizing consulting isn’t for me. Are there any industries where someone with 5 YOE and MBA can get a senior manager or director role with $200k+ total comp or should I expect a pay cut?
I’m a jr litigation associate with many years of tech work pre law school. A former coworker has offered to submit my resume for a legal role at her company (also tech) basically doing contract and privacy work as well as other tasks relevant to my former work life. My current resume is full of litigation experience from law school, since my resume is written for applying to lit positions. On the one hand, it bolsters my legal experience. On the other, it’s not relevant to this role. Do I cut?

How feasible is it to leverage your experience as an SA pre-MBA to a TPM, PM, PMO or other management role post-MBA (M7)? If its not a reach, how do you position yourself if asked about management experience during the interview? Note: Due to personal circumstances, I can't wait the additional 2 years I would need to become manager before going to an MBA though I would do so if I could.

I graduated in May 2020 and found myself excepting a Junior Art Director position in Healthcare. I never saw myself in health but with many agencies having hiring freezes I decided to get some experience and save up some money in the meantime.

I can’t help but feel that the partners in my practice have already decided who they’re investing in to help develop and promote—and it doesn’t include me. I’m a high performer and well-liked, but I see other people at my level and above still get preferential treatment and I think this is hindering promotion. My only solution is to find an exit to another firm. Has anyone else been in this situation and also found their only way to solve this was to leave?

Is it generally enough to have a decent social life / casual hobbies, a good GMAT and GPA, and really strong recommendations from work to get into a top school...? How “extra” do my extracurriculars need to be? All I really do is work. Psyched out by that guy who makes pizza in his oven for free. Man, that guy has a great story and seems like someone I’d want in my MBA program. I feel like such a bore.
In my previous work experience I had a gap after getting laid off. I held various temp roles. How would include this on resume or LinkedIn?
