Any other consultants aiming to lateral into MBB want to form a study/recruiting group of sorts? I’m thinking we can have ~3-5 people total on WhatsApp or even FB messenger or something. I have an interview coming up in March, and I’ve just been finding it difficult to motivate myself when unlike in school, I’m sort of the only one I know in this boat. Lonely grind! Anyone care to join? :)

Hello,fishes!(1YOE-SDET)
I'm trying to attend several interviews. My current CTC is <10LPA, therefore even if I switch jobs and am offered a package that is 40%–50% higher than my current CTC, my new income won't be much higher than 12LPA–13LPA. However, I am on the lookout for even better ones. So, if there is a negotiation, can I mention to HR that I already have an offer of at least 12 lpa and persuade them to give me more? Will this ruse succeed? Or will they demand to show an offer letter?

I am particularly concerned as I would only be working for a year and I don't know if that's enough time to get a good enough feedback.

P.s I am starting next month, but I know I might need to leave after a year for a family matter.
