Do people get any interviews by applying online, reaching out to recruiters on LinkedIn, or is it primarily through referrals? Want to be sure my online applications would not be a waste of energy
In addition to self-reporting scores on the application, do I need to send my official scores to all the schools I’m applying to?
I watched an interview with a psychologist who explained Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and realized this describes my ex to a T. Delusions of grandeur, prone to fits of rage, vain, jealous, thinks everyone is beneath him, entitled. I tried to love him even harder and accommodated every whim to try and make it work. And basically the doctor said that Narcissists don’t change. I’m sad that I wasted 3 years of my life but glad that I’m out. Anyone else healing from dating a Narcissist?
What's the Deloitte technology case interview like for an experienced hire? Anyone care to share interview experience or tips to succeed? I know they have sample tech cases in career site. TIA. Deloitte Consulting, Analytics & Cognitive
I am a customer consultant and I am now really stressed out due to covid, I want a change in my life trying to learn aws. Preparing for SAA-C02 i need some help with practice exam and also on a decision of which stream to proceed with now Devops or sysops. Any leads much appreciated.
Is it just my perception or is USCIS totally jammed and ignoring any processing times, service requests,... I have hard time to believe that Covid is the reason.
Can I disclose a public sector client if it's public knowledge to an interviewer? As in our contract was published and reported on, is it ok for me to say I work on it? Also the project is a covid project and pretty obvious to connect the dots if I describe my work. Been through 5 rounds with an investment bank without disclosing and have a final interview with an MD.
After 3 rounds of interviews (total 4 inc recruiter screen) over the past 5 odd weeks, just got told by a T2 consulting firm that they doesn’t sponsor H1B visas which is frustrating because they were aware of my visa situation right at the start. Sigh 😢. Understand it happens but frustrating nonetheless given the time and effort invested.
it's been nearly 3 weeks since my final interview with Deloitte. I have been continuously following up the hr team and the only update I get is ' feedback not yet received from the partner'. Is this a common thing in Deloitte.
How easy is it to switch offices (from one city to another) at your firm? Signed an offer pre-covid for an office across the country and now really wishing I could stay in place. (Start date was pushed back so I haven’t moved yet.)
Help - Good storyline for interview (audit to FDD) Deloitte FDD Interview tmrr. Was in audit and want to make the move to FDD. Need help to find a great story to tell on “why leave audit?” “Why FDD?”
I started my first job out of college as an Engineer recently. I moved to CT and wow is it expensive here. My goal was to move down south in 2ish years but with Covid19 I figured to move earlier if the right job pops up. Only thing that is keeping me back is that my manager is awesome and a great mentor. I know that is difficult to come by in the engineering world... how long should I stay? Any advice for someone in their early career stages?
Indian citizen, live in Middle East , didn’t visit India in recent past , fully vaccinated , I learnt that I cannot enter USA on L1 due to covid restrictions . Anyone else in same boat?
I never thought I’d say this - but I have cancelled my trip to the Modex industry show in Atlanta next week out of an abundance of caution over coronavirus related to elderly relatives.
Hi guys! Does anyone know about the interview process of McKinsey for a Data Scientist position?McKinsey & Company
I have an interview at a law firm that a law school classmate (acquaintances only) works at. I want to reach out to him, but I’m unsure what is appropriate to say. Any advice?
Wow. McKinsey, which has the biggest public sector presence of the MBB, really hasn't been doing too hot at all in the sector. Its presence is tiny and it's gotten even smaller. Meanwhile it's bungling whatever opportunities it's getting. https://www.propublica.org/article/how-mckinsey-is-making-100-million-and-counting-advising-on-the-governments-bumbling-coronavirus-response
Have a BCG interview coming up. Any advice?
Based on your experiences working at or interacting with MBB, what notable differences are there in their culture/people, work, and work-life mix?
I saw this article in a page I’m learning through from mynea360.org As someone learning to recognize my own white fragility in order to build racial literacy skill & stamina for a sustainable future, I found it very worthwhile. She doesn’t end on a cheerleading note. For support, I see anti-racism addressed in my health care plan (‘mystrength’ app...stress/ ‘you need to have that conversation’) as well as within anti-discrimination online trainings and state & national union webinars. https://educationpost.org/if-you-really-want-to-make-a-difference-in-black-lives-change-how-you-teach-white-kids/
Interviewed at an org where they disclosed 50% of lawyers left the team in < 1 year, work life balance issues, lay offs and pay cuts, so they're understaffed and underpaid. Would you see this as a 🚩?

When it comes to recruiting, is it good for the industry when the first word out of HR is "diversity" and not "talent?"
How much devastation is about to hit the consulting industry? It is one of the most travel focused industries to exist.
I want to request feedback (I am a staff 1 about to roll off my first busy client and feel now would be the time) but I hesitate to seem “weird” or “uncool” to those above me. Is this a valid (cont.)
When I used to travel for business, my local cab driver would pick me up for airport trips. One of the drivers was from Lebanon. He would ask me jokingly how he could contact Modi to find out why India doesn't compete in world cup soccer or win golds in Olympics. I would answer him all of my cousins are either doctors or engineers. This NYT article reminded me of the good old days www.nytimes.com/2021/08/04/world/asia/olympics-india.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage

Does anyone know which agency made the latest TD bank ad? (A bunch of TD staff chatting on a zoom call together brainstorming )
Just curious: have you had any teachers quit or not return to the classroom since winter break?
Just found out I may have to start in summer 2022 at my firm. I was a summer intern, and since I am starting a master's in business analytics this year, and it will take roughly 1.5 years full time to finish, does anyone have career advice for how about handling the situation? (Risk advisory intern btw) Should I just accept the offer for 2022, and later reneg if I find something better, or would it be better to just decline now. Under normal circumstances I would just reneg, but this economy.
What's the typical sales commission on TCV and Earned Revenue for software services in Tier1 System Integrators you guys comes across?
MBB recruiter said I'd hear about my application (whether or not I'd get an interview) by today. haven't heard a word - what should I do? I'm thinking of sending a gentle reminder tomorrow morning, but definitely don't want to look pushy
Book recommendations? I come from non-Union/low budget line producing but I’m now working for a “real agency”. I’m looking to learn more about SAG processes, working with vendors, bidding process, etc. I know most of this knowledges will come from actually working on projects but I’m curious if there are any good resources out there.
Hi! For the folks who have recently took the SHRM-CP exam this year, how would you describe the test and any tips you can provide would be helpful!
