What questions do you ask at the interview?
Received my biometrics appointment notice today! EB3, I-485 filed at the end of Oct. Can someone tell me when is the medical/health exam needed? In the instruction my lawyer sent, the next step is to receive the EAD card, and no mention of medical exam. But I heard lots of others mentioned they needed to do the medical exam before the interview?
I Have an interview with kpmg for AAS under M&A, does anyone have any tips on how I should prepare for my interview?

How do you not sound repetitive across interviews during a super day with multiple behaviorals?

Advice on what to wear (male) to interview with Slalom in LA? Full suit and tie, suit with no tie, slacks and a nice shirt with no jacket?
Hi, I am on my H-1b visa and got an offer from another firm say A, so would need a visa transfer. Although I have another interviews lined up and I am expecting an offer from firm B. Would it be fine if I sign the offer with firm A and let them start the transfer process but once later I get offer from firm B, would it be fine if they start transfer process too and then decide which one to choose? Is that possible?
Looking for advice- have FAANG final round (not amz) after 3 rounds already. How do I not mess this up, and what are they looking for? I passed hiring manager interview, case interview and engineering tech screen so far. Next meeting is to meet with eng director and “meet some team members”. Was told to budget an entire day.
Advice for conducting virtual interviews? Do you show the interviewer your paper over zoom? Can you get away with keeping some notes nearby to glance at during the interview?
Can interviewers tell if you are articulating a well-prepared story? I practiced about 15 stories for few months, used them, did not clear the interview. Versus lately, I did not prepare at all, only did "conversational stories" with interviewers and got an offer. Is this normal?
What’s the dress code for virtual interviews now? Have a first round with BCG and debating if a crisp shirt will be fine, or if I need a suit? It’s also super hot, so don’t want to be sweating the whole time 😓
I have a final round interview with a hedge fund in the NYC area. Approximately $15bn AUM and 40 employees. I am meeting with the founder of the firm and was told we would be discussing comp. I just graduated from college this year and the role is business development associate. The hiring manager described it as a front office role. What salary range should I be expecting going into the meeting? What about bonus?
Anybody from McK implementation able to share some interview guidance? Especially SAP but any other functional area is welcome!
I was contacted by a Facebook recruiter for a Data Scientist interview, but I'm not ready to take a new job right now. Should I take the interview for the practice or would that look bad if I want to seriously apply next year?
EY'ers remember to submit your Oct phone expense report today before the new policy goes into effect tomorrow and the cap comes crashing down!
Anyone else frustrated that their friends don't have enough money or PTO to do anything fun? I'm 28, single, and I really want to jetset at least a LITTLE after this whole pandemic, but I don't have any adventure buddies :( not trying to sound spoiled- in the case of my friends, they just chose more restrictive career paths. I'm afraid to lose these years before people are married and having kids and REALLY can't do anything
If you expensed a charge and then later realize it was billed wrong so you get it refunded by the vendor. Meanwhile the expense report is already paid by the firm do you pocket it or fess up?
@McK 🐠🐟 I'm a BA starting in two weeks and I was curious about seating on flights. Can I request always getting extra legroom or exit row as I'm a 6'5" male and can't fit in a smaller seat? Contd...
College student here. I was curious as to McK’s undergrad hiring process. I see that it seems they want you to indicate a preference for a specific practice area (such as Ops or Corp Fin),...(cont.)
Hello I saw a lot of you post about how you use tote bags a lot for errands / work etc. I started painting over the pandemic, and recently turned my abstract art into tote bags!

Hi Fishes! All help appreciated I received an offer from my dream co. - McKinsey. Have another discussion with HR for comp. & joining details, once I accept the offer. I want to join after 4 months (2m of notice period at Deloitte & 2m I want for personal self). How do I take that up? How much deferral of joining is normal? Suggest some reasons (something that sounds genuine | Honestly want to sit home for 2 months and relax, but not sure if HR will accept it) Share experiences if anyone?
How can I earn a bazillion babillion dollars so I can FIRE and not have to worry about working? Older friend got laid off. Contd...
What are some good outside resources for drafting your resume and preparing to interview?
Anyone traveled from Croatia to the US to circumvent the Schengen travel ban? I know there’s other options like Mexico but am particularly interested in Croatia and as I think they won’t stamp your passport if you enter as European, I am wondering if hotel bookings will be sufficient to prove my 14 day stay. Probably would also enter by car which might make it more difficult to prove.
Just started my first full-time position for 2021 and wish to max out my 401k. If I set it to 10% of my income, would it automatically stop when it reaches the max? Or would I have to manually go in and adjust it to 0% ? Ty!
What kinds of extracurriculars "count" for admissions? For example, I'm a serious musician and play in competitions and gigs; I also have some leadership experience from college that was pretty extensive (used it for all my job interviews) but hasn't continued since then. Also, how many activities do they usually ask for? Just trying to get a sense of how/if I should adjust my activities to be more "application-ready".
Anyone take courses/get a degree from Harvard Extension School? Experience? Was it worth it? Are you also able to build a network? Realize it’s not like an MBA, but that doesn’t fit my life now .

Can you wear business casual to an interview
I have been 😂😂😂 all morning all by myself. So, I started taking out my sew in cause this summer heat is killing me. I was about to take down the closure when I suddenly remembered that I had to be on a video call for work. So, I just brushed the closure and positioned myself in front of the camera as if I still have the full hair do. Front view is 💯. Back view is 🙈😂😂😂. When have you all had to improvise while WFH?
