Just passed my last CPA exam. Congrats to everyone else out there getting their final scores tonight.
Got through five rounds of reviews and now I think I’m being ghosted? It’s been over 2 weeks since the final talks and I’ve followed up with HR a few times only to not get a response. Is this normal? I’ve been in my current position for a long time so I feel like I’m out of the loop in terms of what a normal timeline in the current job market is. Should I give up on the position entirely and move on? Was hoping for a definitive answer before doing so (may be wishful thinking at this point)
I interned with this guy and we flirted all the time, now we're full time hires and on the same project. I think it's pretty obvious we're into each other, just don't know what to do about it

Is it just me or have some really stacked profiles gotten dinged this cycle? Not sure if it’s the covid competitiveness or it’s always like this every year but I’m a little less motivated for R2 given people with some stellar stats have not even gotten interviews at HSW... maybe it’s a small/biased sample
Hello folks! 2 weeks ago I was interviewed by Accenture and the interview went so well that the 4 rounds happened all in one single day. They told me that I am selected and that I will receive the offer letter within 2 days. But it's been 2 weeks now, I have neither received the offer letter nor there is any communication from them. I tried calling the HRs who were calling me for the interview timings, but they are not picking up my calls. Any idea what happened or what should I do? Thanks.
