How do you all find time for interviews? Currently I’m in the office around 6am and leave around 9pm. Friday’s I start meetings in bed at 5am and finish around 5pm. Should I take them at the airport?
I’m an immigrant with H1B. Been wanting to get out of my firm so badly but every time I apply outside, I start getting dragged into work at my current firm.I was going through some pretty rigorous interviews (I failed them) and have been in a slump since. Meanwhile my current firm keeps dumping work on me and I can’t find the time to apply outside. Anyone been through something similar? I’m losing hope.The politics is also so toxic, they started screwing me over since my last performance review.
How to deal with an exploding offer? I interviewed for a company and was very excited for it. 1 recruiter interview & 1 with a couple team members. Then I got a short term offer a few days later, tried to negotiate and they came back a week later with a final offer. Rate stayed the same but was told I need to answer by next day. Honestly the process has made me so stressed. I'm interviewing with another company at the same time and their process feels warm & they take their time answering
Is anyone interested in practicing McKinsey style interviews? Have a final round coming up.
Have seen it all. Just had an interviewer join a video call and he was wearing what appeared to be bath robe. His two daughters were shouting behind him (could see both of them ) for the whole 45 min interview. The interviewer appeared to be stressed out but was very nice so I guess I can give him a pass.
I am a background check away from putting in my notice. KEEP grinding if you’re miserable and/or have trouble getting out of bed in the morning. This took a lot of ghosting and interviews+offer letters being taken off the table due to COVID. Stay humble and you’ll be next. Take a midday walk and schedule some coffee meetings to expand your network and stay sane.
What’s your next move, if any? I had three interviews at the end of August (obtained outside of their normal recruiting process) with an AmLaw 100 firm for an associate job. The managing partner was up front with me that they are trying to gauge needs and that they need a month or two for something else to shake out. This was not a clear blowoff, in context. How/when do I show continued interest/remind them I exist politely/avoid hurting my odds? Assume I’m not delusional.
About to have my final interview with an agency I really love. The pay increase will be 6K which I verbally agreed to, but am wondering if I can ask for 4K more (10K total) after the final interview?

Have an interview coming up and I’m a tad nervous. I feel that when I overprepare, I come off as robotic and the overpreparation makes me more nervous. I have a strong network at the company but I can find it hard to describe my achievements. Do you guys have any tips or can relate?
Haven't written a resume since I was applying for internships over 4 years ago. Any good resources out there or advice? I'm a little overwhelmed.
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’ve seen a lot of posts lately about Accenture Strategy interviews. Are they ramping up their practice?

Interviewing as a Finance Manager for a company halfway across the country. Relocation hasn’t been brought up yet. They know I’m out of state.

What do you think that the education system needs to do, to get young people to be better prepared with challenges in life? For example, I grew up in Malaysia, national secondary schools had home science lessons, where we learnt from ironing to cooking to carpentry to sewing to plumbing to soldering on a circuit board where we did individually or in teams. To me, these skills altogether prepped me with a lifelong ‘Swiss Army knife’! Anyone with children with ideas?
