Anyone have experience interviewing for corporate strategy at Starbucks? Currently in the final round. I’ve been in consulting for 1.5 years now, I’m a little burned out and wondering if I should take the industry exit route or stay and continue to try to get into PE/VC.

Sounds like a great exit. Will open doors to all kimds of retail/FMCG industry in general. PE/VC is brutal and I guess you'd generally need more experience under your belt.

Got offered a role at a Middle East office at BCG - haven't accepted yet. Anyway that I can transfer to a north American office (my current location) before I join? SO can't move to Dubai and while applying they didn't interview me for my current location just for the Dubai one. I understand this may be a big ask, and I'm happy to interview again if need be.

People who have interviewed with google in the past but did not get an offer. Did google recruiters ever reach out to you afterwards? I’m in a situation where I already accepted an offer from another company and google came back saying I passed to the last interview round. Even though google is my dream/end goal job, I decided to walk away from the opportunity. I was wonder if anyone ever got contacted by the recruiters later on after failing/withdrawing the interviews?

Dear TCSers... I got a call from a TCS er.. last week and he interviewed me saying he received my CV from an external source. He shared his tcs email id, asked me to make minor modifications in the CV and then there will be a client interview. He said he will get back to me. I reached out to him 2 days later and he informed they were evaluating my eligibility with TCS. It has been 4 days since that and I have not heard from them. What does this actually mean?
