Whenever you're in a concepting project and have a wild idea, you can try and push it forward as an 'alt'. It's helped me get some crazy stuff approved before. Also be prepared for like a year of them turning down your crazy ideas straight

Hey Fishes,

Quick question. Is it possible to get transferred from PwC SDC to PwC India? I recently learnt about openings/opportunities at PwC India that are relevant to my field and definitely more lucrative.

Should i seek a transfer or do i follow the old fashioned way? Does PwC India poach people from PwC SDC and vice versa?

Do people really ever get jobs through cold interviews from job postings? I’ve been trying it for years, done alot of third-round interviews and such, all generally positive experiences, but every job I’ve ever landed has involved a personal recommendation, warm intro, or someone I’ve worked with at a previous role or as a competitor, etc. A fair number of the jobs I’ve notice go “unfilled” with postings remaining up for months or years after. Most places draw out the process 2+ months.

In house interviews:
I finished a final round of interviews and was expecting a final decision after the interviews. Rather than yes or no, the recruiter told me that the feedback is positive but they need to interview one more candidate to compare since I am the first one interviewed. And they wanted to add one more meeting with their new team member starting next week. Is this common and what’s the best way to deal with this unexpected message? Thanks!

I work at a social/mostly BTL agency and fight so hard to get a seat at the table and scripts in on campaign work. Honestly, it makes the account people mad when I overstep my scope.
