For me (during virtual times): numerous recruiter chats, a couple light phone interviews, then power day. Power day included a couple MD fit interviews, a take home M&A case that was fairly quantitative, etc. Entire process was slow, took several months

Thanks C1. I am at the power day portion of this process. Do you have any tips or recommendations for the case / MD fit interviews?

Thanks again for the info C1 👍🏼

What does MAS stand for?

A question for recruiters. When you call someone asking them if they are interested in an opportunity and then ask them for a technical interview the next day and they ask for an extension does it impact their application? Recently it has happened to me twice that recruiter calls, he has my details and asks if I’m interested and then ask for same day or next day interview. And when I apologize since I actually have job to take care as well they just ghost me. Is this something that’s normal?

Just giving a bit of Gyan to fellow fishers Please please do not ever use CTC comparison between current and next company. If you get an offer, do an in hand calculation. Some companies add Retirals like Employer PF, Gratuity along with Insurance, furniture allowance as part of your CTC. Others don't. Sone also have higher variable package. So when you do a CTC delta you may get a 20% hike but when you discount the above things you will fall short and may end up making less. So choose wisely.
