Applying to a technical accounting position and the Company is asking for a writing sample. They have two options I could either write on a case scenario that they provide me or I can provide a writing sample from something that I have written before. I have a memo talking about a 606 cut off considerations it’s not very technical but I think it would address the request do you guys think this would be enough or should I just do the writing case scenario￼?
How hard are apple interviews?
Trying to exit into FAANG but know it may be a long shot involving a handful of rejections. Meanwhile got approached by a number of recruiters for a) smaller emerging startup <but need to shift geo>, and b) major banks for in-house strategy. I’ll proceed with interviews with a) since it will give me a flavour of tech recruiting, but should I even go through with interview process for b)? Thoughts? Fyi, have not interviewed in 4+ years!
Interviewing with an agency in NYC, but I’ve never worked in that market, so I’d love some guidance. Nearly 5 years experience. Working at an accomplished place right now. Have several awards. What should be the LOWEST number I accept in a negotiation? This isn’t a big holding company shop, so I’m trying to prepare what realistically could be the lowest I go.
Google interviews - is everyone who makes it past each round on the same playing field? Or do they let people through who are second tier in their eyes?
I recently left a pretty good summer internship to take a full time job and I regret it. I have been losing sleep over it all summer. And after remote work ends, the job would be in a high cost of living city as well. Due to this, I am looking at switching jobs again. I feel terrible about starting my career as a job hopper. Despite getting interviews at good companies, nothing is making me feel better about this situation. I don’t know how to handle the thoughts racing in my mind.
I’m a non-traditional UG student veteran at Yale University w/10 YoE in the intel community, 1YoE contracting for a 3 letter agency and had an IB internship with an NY-based BB last year (received FT offer but turned it down for family reasons). Graduate in May ‘22 & major in poly sci. Applying for FT roles with MBB this summer and am wondering if anyone had any advise on other consulting firms worth applying to? I’m sure I’m overlooking some firms & Yale CS hasn’t been very helpful. Thank you!
Has anyone interviewed for the Growth Strategy team at Datadog? Would like to know what to expect.
Hey Ad People!! Jr Copywriter here! Tomorrow I have a interview with one of my dream agencies for an internship opportunity but I know my book isn’t good enough to land me the job. How does a candidate that may not have the best book stand out?? Backstory: I have been working freelance at an agency as a Jr. Copywriter which is why I haven’t been making new work. Did not attend portfolio school.
Question regarding experience with Deloitte recruitment- is it normal for the recruitment team to go cold after scheduling the face-to-face interview? Been weeks and no communication from them.
Any advice on a Bain full time first round interview? I go to a non-target school, and am an engineering major. I’ve tried applying to consulting internships since sophomore year and have never received any interviews from anywhere. I’ve been casing all summer with friends and am super nervous before the interview. Would appreciate anything that could help me stand out or anything to avoid that would get me rejected. I know Bain heavily focuses on the case and not as much the behavioral.

Hi Fishies! I have got a call for cloud engineer position in PWC. But i havent heard back from anyone for scheduling any interview.

I bought a ~4k sqft home in Chicago suburb about 7 years ago. It has ~2k sq ft unfinished basement. At the time of moving into this home, we were expecting our daughter and then we also had our son two years later. I was on the fence on finishing the basement at that time because I wad not sure to invest $50k (min) in finishing the basement. Now the kids are 7 and 5, I am thinking if I should finish it so kids can enjoy but it is not a necessity. Thoughts on ROI of finishing the basement.

Leaving for industry for a large pay bump. Don’t want to go back to PA. After you leave, how do you: 1) stay current on skills? 2) continue to achieve pay increases? 3) get guidance on regulation when you don’t have firm guidance?
This primetime gymnastics coverage is cringe. Announcers did a whole thing on teammates being there for one another and being able to rely on one another, yet we all know what is to come
When I was hired as an associate, I was informed that associates are paid within a certain range based on their graduation class year. I negotiated my salary, but was told the firm could not pay a higher amount because of the range associated with my class year. Fast forward one year, a new associate is hired (same class year as me) and I find out that said person, who is of the opposite gender, is paid approximately $50k more then me. Any advice on how to handle?
