Hey McKinsey Fish! Is there any real luck of applying to a job on the website? I applied to an implementation role that I know I would be qualified for but without any referral. Been a few weeks so was just hoping to atleast see a rejection 😁
Anyone laid off from Deloitte been getting interviews? (Not for tech roles but more finance) im getting traction from head hunters but not much from firm website applications
Can you wear business casual to an interview
I interviewed for a job in a diff location and during interviews they asked me multiple times how I felt abt relocating. I said it was fine, but the more I think about it the less I’m open to relocating. I now have an offer from them, is there anyway to negotiate no relocation? They are remote until mid year 2021. I’m Happy to fly in on a monthly basis but I don’t want to move there.
Feeling burnt out and fed up and it’s not even busy season. Can’t quit because I need this job for money and didn’t get any offers while interviewing 😩 just venting
I've made it to the case interview stage with Accenture Strategy Middle East for tech strategy. Does anyone have experience or insight with what to expect? I.e. is it likely to be more high level strategy case (market segmentation, P&L, M&A etc) or along the lines of tech cases (implementation, roadmapping, tech alignment to business)?
Hi All, I worked for 4 months at some agency as a full time, due to personal reasons I had to leave that job. After a month I joined another agency where I’m currently working/furloughed. In resume I do not mention that job where I worked for 4 months due to obvious reasons. Can any new potential employer find out that 4months I hid and covered under previous employment? Please advise, I’m scared as I’m not getting any offers despite interviewed at several organizations.
Any tips for getting a job abroad? Currently working in Germany, applications abroad are basically all instantly discarded, while I have always get invitations for interviews in Germany. Have lived abroad multiple years before… I open for many countries, currently looking at Canada, Netherlands, Switzerland, US, Singapore and Australia.
Do you guys see ppl moving from a product strategy roles to product manager roles? I’m getting dinged in interviews because I haven’t seen a product through end to end implementation, I primarily work on the early stages and then hand off. I’ve been trying to shadow and volunteer on implementation side...any other tips? Background is 2.5 years in product strategy, 2 years corporate strategy, 3 years in marketing.
Is it hard to get into big tech from big 4 tech consulting after 3+ years? I tried at 2 yoe and didnt get any FAANG interviews. I was also targeting data analytics roles and it seems pretty tough. No referrals... I will try again in probably a year but really hoping to hear some success stories. All my offers were in consulting 😭😭😭😭
Interviewing from T2 to MBB, experienced hire. Anyone knows how much more difficult the interviews would be compared to entry-level interviews?
Job apps have terms at end which includes fact that they can reach out to all listed employers. Should I reach out and check that they will not talk to current supervisor, or rather forego applying?
Took me a long time to figure out: 1) don’t interview for jobs, interview the boss you will be reporting to 2) don’t count on your employer for anything ( including your finances) have 2 or 3 side
Went through 5 rounds of interviews just to get a “the needs for the team have unfortunately shifted, and we no longer have a need at this time. That said, if anything does change, I will keep you updated!” To say I’m discouraged is an understatement.
Is it wise to leave a firm like ZS associates in for a backend role at Mckinsey. At ZS we get proper client side consulting role exposure but the mckinsey opening is more of a knowledge management type thing. So should I think of applying?
Last step of an interview process, I’ve received a case study where a new player enters the market with a cheaper and better proposition. Not dramatic movement of the market has been detected, but customers are asking for similar offers and the market seems to loose its “dynamics”. The client is asking my firm to develop a strategy to fend its clients data base and revenue stream from the new player. - 1h presentation, any suggestions on how to structure the problem?
Most bullshit case study that won big at Cannes?
If we’re calling this a war, know your part. Medical staff are the front line, the grunts, the ones pulling long shifts and facing death head on. Everyone else is in the rear supporting what they need
The only 5 people who have EVER asked me if I am a CFP... BTW I'm not... have been Millennials and gen-xers looking to start DCAing $250 a month into a Roth. Not 1 person of significant wealth. LOL
Has anyone started a company on an H1b?
A CRO offerred me an internal consulting/biz dev role. They offered 145k TC (20% bump) and slightly better benefits. They also offered accelerated path (6mo to 1yr) to MC. While promotion to MC at my current company is at least 1 year away. The job is interesting to me and fits my careery goal. But my big concern is that I've only been with my current company for a year (this is my first job, post PhD). Would this affect my resume in the future in terms of being viewed as "job hopping"?
McKinsey dads: what’s parental leave time at your firm? Is there a minimum tenure requirement to take the leave?
What is Wieden+Kennedy Strategy Director salary? I looked on glassdoor but there is not enough data. Thanks.
Hello Everyone! Thinking of possibly taking a full-time senior producer role (will be integrated). I’m currently freelance and trying to figure out what would be the appropriate translation of pay from freelance to full-time. Does anyone have a helpful “equation” to go about this? Would be so appreciative of any input! Thanks so much!
Hi ladies~ I am looking for recommendations on travel bags, like Lo & Sons OG bag. 🥰Thanks in advance!!! Oh and what are the best deals you’ve seen with Lo & Sons?
Spent a year in banking at an EB but had to go back to school because of H1B visa issues. About to start as a BA at McK in the fall. Any thoughts on my ability to recruit for summer 2022 PE Assoc roles? Or do I have to spend minimum 2 years in consulting before making the switch?
I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?
PwC Director Sabbatical is a joke. They tell you it is 4 weeks, it is actually 3 weeks plus one week of your vacation, and good luck trying to take it.
Anyone have any recommendations for a recruiter in Florida or one that specializes in remote positions? I have a nontraditional family situation (eg military) and would need something flexible location wise. Thanks!
