Depends on team. Everyone does things differently.

i’ve actually heard from multiple recruiters that the interview process from the microsoft consulting arm has no whiteboard or coding so i’m just trying to get insight if this is true and what kind of questions they ask. I would think that all the teams in the consulting practice follow these guidelines if true

Heads up. Interviewing at an Attest client - you should check our independence policy.

Just went through the interview process for the Azure Data/AI role. There were 2 technical and 1 behavioral interviews. No coding at all for the technical portions. They’ll ask you your YOE in whichever tools they’re looking for based on requirements to see what your background and expertise is like. They also want to get a feel of what level you might excel in when describing your experience. Hope this helps and good luck!

It’s so hard seeing so many people make so much more money by switching to new firms. I’m making a strategic move that will probably command more comp in 3-5 years than I would have made if I hadn’t made the jump but my salary bump (25%) isn’t nearly what everyone else is getting right now because I’m basically starting over in a new area. I have serious FOMO. I *think* I did the right thing but now I’m all caught up in comparing myself! Could use some words of encouragement or advice, y’all…
