Yep I’ve used this and for the job. Find out who the hiring manager is by contacting the recruiter (there’s usually a name on there of who to contact), set up a coffee with the hiring manager and say you want to learn more about the role (but go prepared as to why you’re interested etc coz they might ask). Then just have a chit chat with them and at the end say you’re going to apply. It goes a long way and shows you are super proactive. Treat it like an informal interview. Worked for me:)

First time potential lateral here. Is it par for the course to provide a list of matters during the interview process for conflicts? I am wondering if it would be acceptable to hold off on disclosing that information should an offer for a job arise.

Hey fishes, I got confirmation of an offer from EY UK for a manager position. However the confirmation is only on mail, I did get a mail from the partner as well. Didnt recieve official contract yet, now I need to answer to another firm now. Although little uneasy in rejecting other offer before getting the contract. HR said it should take around a week, which will be tmrw. HR knows about the situation already & I feel chasing her again will just piss her off. Any suuggestions?

I’ve been in consulting just under a year. I came from a tech company and implement their technology. I hate delivery and it’s showing… I can’t find a role I enjoy. I’ve been on difficult projects which probably doesn’t help, but in general I’m finding I don’t enjoy the deep, in the weeds conversations that being in delivery requires. Should I try to move within my company, go back to tech, or join another consulting firm in a different capacity?

Daddy D is throwing around some pretty crazy referral bonuses right now. If I can hit four referrals, I’ll split evenly among all four + myself. Up to $10k per person and at least $2.5k per person. Put it in escrow and everything. So if you’re looking to change firms, a new opportunity, etc. DM me. Can easily negotiate a nice sign on bonus, and my offer should sweeten the pot.
