I spotted an open role that I like but it seems it was posted a month ago!!! do you think there is any hope in applying?
Got feedback after 6+ rounds of interviews that i didnt receive an offer for the job I was interviewing for, main reason being i seemed "low energy" which impacted my conversations/communication at times. I am not sure why if they picked this up after 2-3 rounds why they would have me continue on, but I am not sure how to take this. I asked a ton of questions and did a ton of research so I dont think I came off as unenthusiastic about the role/company, but any ideas on what else this means?
Hello people... I am currently serving my notice period in Infosys. About 35 days left in notice period. Infosys giving me 4.3 LPA and the other companies from which I got offer giving me 6.5 and 7.

What are the chances of going from Accenture management consulting to PE? In 3rd round of interviews for an operations role in a small to mid market PE firm, and would love to know if I have much of a chance. PE firm focuses on enterprise software, so ACN knowledge is at least relevant here.
Can anyone provide a ball park, high level effective tax rate for a big 4 partner..trying to do ball park comparison of my post tax earning as MD (W2) with the potential offer from a Big 4.

Inputs welcome!
I was interviewed for Java, Spring Boot, Microservices tech stack with FIS, but in the interview, the interviewer asked me a question how will you check if there is some failure in the application. And he said we get this kind of work, where we get tickets to check the issues. Does it mean it's a support project?

TLDR: Getting over your ex of 2.5 years ghosting you after they said they wanted to reconnect.
I was dating someone for about 2.5 years and then we broke up because of COVID and the long distance was making it too difficult to continue. The break up must’ve been like a 4-5 minute FaceTime because I was very distraught. After we broke up, she started seeing someone else but I was heartbroken and it’s taken me over a year to really get over everything and process those feelings. (Cont.)

What I see is people hiring people they get along with. I think they all “want diversity” but when they gel with their homeboy that’s been recommended by another homeboy in an interview, it’s (cont)
I did my interview with kellogg last and I think I did well. The interviewer gave me good feedback throughout the interview saying my accomplishments were respectable, my answers robust, that I came off as very authentic, that she could tell I hadn't rehearsed my answers with an admissions consultant, and that I had faced challenges in life that most people applying to bschool hadn't.
I heard next my application + interview "score" will be reviewed by someone who hasn't already seen my app
I got at interview at Verily (alphabet company) for a Quality Operations Program Manager position does anyone have any insight on the company or the interview process?
I had an interview and the recruiter (White F) could not stop talking about DEI and POC % hires. It’s great yes but I didn’t even mention or ask about it yet. Barely had time to talk about myself. I was slightly uncomfortable. She made me feel like a diversity hire.
I have built social media and influencer programs for starts up for the last 8 years. I recently had a very unprofessional experience recently going through an interview process. I had 3 rounds of interviews already, did an amazing case, my last interview was scheduled with the CMO, the day before the interview I am told that the CMO wants someone who has big brand experience like Taco Bell or Nike. It blew my mind because this is a start-up too & that my qualifications don’t even matter.

On indeed, this employer gave interview date options and it turns out if you select another date (which is one of their options) they will disqualify you from the interview process. I submitted my application this Sunday , sent me an interview invitation on Monday , I sent my requested interview time Monday too, and now the job has been filled
Incentive ideas needed!
I’m in charge of our school incentive program for this upcoming year to keep the kids into virtual learning. We are distance learning until at least October. I can not think of incentives for distance learning! Also, does anyone have a good platform for monitoring PBIS type behaviors? I know about Class Dojo, but know there are others....

How do you guys celebrate your bdays? Turning 35, don’t have friends nearby as I have been moving with husband since I was 25. Have a 3yo, so just 3 of us are a tight family.

It’s also on Christmas Day which is complex as not many things are open outside and want to celebrate Christmas home with my LO.

career advice needed!
I started my career from small manufacuring company in small city and it's been 4yrs. I'm licensed CPA and I would love to work at big 4 audit if it's possible. As far as I know, most of recruitment from big 4 is done by campus recruiting.
I'm thinking next March-April to start since I would like to finish 2022 audit for my current employer first.
My question is is it possible to get into big4 with my background? If so, how can I get there?

I have four years of audit experience and jumping firms to get a manager title because I can. Even if I do get a manager role, I feel like I might not be ready yet. I have done many audits from beginning to finish by myself, but there will be area I am not completely comfortable. Were you very ready when you were promoted to manager? Or did you just fake it until you make it? What is expected as a manager? I incharged and worked with partners to issue jobs directly because my jobs were small.

Why not BDO?
BDO handled the Covid situation terribly. Multiple people have put in their notice from my office and more soon to follow. I would not suggest wasting your time with BDO
Cbiz in Boston and Providence is great. COVID and being entirely remote is tough but they are doing a good job handling it
Great to hear! Thanks 🙏🏼
