Applied to Mck and BCG over a month ago with a referral (did pymetrics for BCG) but haven’t heard back. Have my second round with Bain in a few weeks. Don’t want to put all my proverbial eggs in the Bain basket so wondering if all of you smart people on here can tell me if there’s anything I should or could do to continue moving along with the other firms. Thank you!

There is nothing you can do

If you have a recruiter contact, let them know about Bain and ask them if the process can be sped up to align more closely with Bain interviews. If they're interested in your candidacy, they will accommodate you (or at least let you know what the interview schedule will look like and when you can expect to hear about being invited). If not, you know that you're not interviewing with them after all.

Ask the person that gave you the referral to follow up on the process. They can tell the recruiter that you have other interviews coming as well.

I get the sense that part of the reason schools are slow to re-open is that the faculty is opposed to going back for self-serving reasons with an irrational argument to support their position. It seems like a lot of time is spent focusing on all the things that could go wrong and minimal time on how to make it work. I’m sorry summer break is over, but it’s time to get back to work like the rest of us do 365. Our kid needs an education and we need to work without worrying about it.


Fiancée (woman) wants to keep her hyphenated name after her previous divorce because she likes it better and wants to keep using it for her career/personal brand. Fiancé (man) thinks keeping it hyphenated is disrespectful to him, does not see how shortening a hyphenated name detracts from personal branding, would prefer she only use her maiden name going forward, and does not want her to adopt own last name once married. Who do you side with?

Talk to me about vacation shaming. Whenever I have mentioned time off to my superiors (one in particular), I get a very negative response disguised as "helpful advice" suggesting it would be better for my career that I not take leave at this specific time, or I get the cold shoulder. I'm a pleaser, so I carry this stress with me when I do take time and have missed family events, etc. in an effort to avoid this feeling. I'm meeting or slightly exceeding goals, if that's relevant.

Just a PSA: this app is incredible. For the last 6 months, I’ve been at a toxic firm that ate away at my happiness (I’m the one who’s boss “wasn’t convinced [I was] smart enough for the job.”). With your input, guidance, and camaraderie, I accepted a clerkship with a District Judge today. Also today, I spoke on the phone with someone who DM’d me asking for advice on a certain niche issue. It’s us, the “fish” on this app, that can help and support each other. And today, here is proof. Thank you.
