Anyone here familiar with the hiring process of KPMG consulting in Van? Had a partner interview on Nov 21, thought the feedback was positive but haven't heard back yet (no rejection/offer). Is it something normal or the interview just didn't go as well as I thought?

It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.

Thanks in advance!

That might just be the case. KPMG is a hug company after all. How long have you been waiting for a call back since the interview? It would probably take 2 to 3 weeks or even 4 weeks maximum. I would definitely send a follow-up after the 3rd week.

Yea I guess the fact that we're close to Christmas didn't help with the internal timeline either...Thank you for the advice!

Have you followed up at all? November 21st wasn't that long ago, so they could very well still be considering your candidacy, but following up with the recruiter will reinforce your interest and give you an idea of what to expect. Best of luck!

No, I have not, was waiting for the 2-week mark. Thank you!

Curious, what are you expecting for comp?

Probably near the lower end of their SC band. Salary isn’t a major driver for me.

Probably late to the party, and assume you’ve heard back, but what’s the group? Assuming you mean an advisory group since you called it KPMG Consulting vs audit/tax.

I wouldn’t say huge company is a reason since each of the advisory groups has a dedicated experienced hiring manager.

They may have had a bunch of candidates and/or just moving very slow to hire the right person.

DM me if you still haven’t heard back (Director in Advisory).

Over the last year I’ve had 4 separate interview cycles where after the final round I’ve gotten “you had all strong feedback but the team went with the other candidate.” It’s really insulting to hear these companies say that there isn’t enough qualified black candidates but have your own experience show you that you can do everything right but still you don’t get the offer due to not looking the part I guess

Hi everyone,

I was affected by layoffs about a month ago and urgently looking for a good immigration lawyer. The lawyer should be experienced in handling this 60 day grace period situation and developing alternate strategies - such as change of status to B1/B2 or applying to jobs from India. There is a lot of noise and wrong information going in the market so looking for good recommendations. 

I have very little time left for my grace period to end and need a consultation soon. Thanks

Both are in the same range salary wise, and my team is SUPER small. Both are great fits, and I am torn. Advice? Please?
