Is it OK to list your resume experiences out of chronological order and instead relevance to the position you’re applying to?
I wanted to flag so others can know, I live in mcol and I just received an offer for 120k base and a 15k signing bonus. I have three years of experience. I asked for a signing bonus and a 110k salary. If you are a senior, you should definitely be applying and just see what comes up. Crazy the market for seniors right now
I was supposed to have a final partner interview at PWC today and there was a no call no show from the partner then I fold up with an email to the recruiter and haven't heard anything yet, has anyone ever faced anything similar? Thanks

Interviewing with BCG next week. Approximately how many questions would be asked in the 25 minute fit portion? My interviewer has an interesting hobby (from the bio provided) that I want to ask about, but I don’t want to impede on any behavioral questions that need to be asked
Layoffs and furloughs thread. What firms are cutting and furloughing? Across all industries.
In other news: Deloitte is full of trolls that are trying to convince you you're about to be laid off.
Nothing today on the S& layoffs?
Hi I was planning on applying to Blackrock for their Corporate strategy and development summer internship program. Could someone help me understand the job responsibilities better?
It’s restructuring season. KPMG, GT, and other firms have begun announcing layoffs. Everyone should take some time to polish off their resume. It’s a cold world out there and loyalty means nothing to your employer. Here’s to hoping that everyone lands on their feet and I’ll see y’all in a happier future.
In house interviews: I finished a final round of interviews and was expecting a final decision after the interviews. Rather than yes or no, the recruiter told me that the feedback is positive but they need to interview one more candidate to compare since I am the first one interviewed. And they wanted to add one more meeting with their new team member starting next week. Is this common and what’s the best way to deal with this unexpected message? Thanks!
Many of my colleagues that started with me have been laid off. Where should I start looking just in case. Key resume points: - TS/SCI + poly - Security+ - AWS CCP - PMP - want to stay in DC area
Layoff news from Deloitte! Is there a pattern?
How do you keep from getting discouraged while job hunting? I’ve had 3 final round interviews in the past month and gotten passed over each time. Their reasoning is always “we went in a different direction”. Each of the interview processes was 4-5 interviews so it’s a big time commitment and really gotten my hopes up each time.

Interviewing with a small internal strat team (currently 3 FTEs) led by the CSO. One VP was awesome, Ex MBB really energetic/excited is with 1.5 yrs in tenure. Then interviewed with the other VP and Manager. They weren’t great, overall not quite at the same level as the VP in terms of professionalism and pedigree. They were very tactical and felt more like middle managers without vision. The latter two seem to have grown up in the company (3-4 years)
Having a hard time emotionally...project started pre-covid and I was told it will be about identifying process improvement opps within supply chain.

How are people "networking" now that we are wfh? I mean, you are barely even aware if people still work in the same company. Previously, you at least saw them every now and then at the office but now... They could have fired half the company and I wouldn't know
