My interview completely went off the rails my 88 yo grandfather brought my crying nephew (3mo) into the room during video interview (my power was out and I had to do the interview at my sisters house) and said “he won’t shut up” I got him quiet but had to hold him while my grandfather walked around the room and was onscreen in the background 🤦♀️. The guy was really nice about it. For my thank you letter obvi am apologizing. I was thinking about including a picture f the kid smiling or how to
Currently interviewing at a startup and a new position opened up that I really like. Would it look bad to ask the recruiter if I can also be considered for the new role?
Had a pre-screen call with talent for a job at RSM (experienced hire). She said she would ask the team if they are interested in interviewing me but online the application status changed to ‘Requisition Closed.’ Any insight in to what that means?

Hello, I am looking out for a job change for Informatica Data Engineer role. I have relevant experience of 6 years and tot exp is 7.8. Currently serving notice
I attended more than 50 interviews in my whole career, and today I attended one of the worst interview ever. It was a telephonic interview. From the beginning his voice was breaking and the call had been dropped 2 times.I even hear the sound of vehicles on his background. When I told him, his voice was breaking, he behaved rudely.
In my mind I was like when this interview will stop.

Taking over a project and previous project lead rarely spends time with me. I mean for the issues with documentation, I am able to nearly understand everything, but a lot of the scope discussion were already done but in his head only. In this case, should I try grabbing him or setting up calls with business again to collect everything?

Internal corporate strategy folks: what do you actually do? I know "corporate strategy" is a sexy title everyone wants, and that these roles are usually full of ex-MBB types, but I have no idea what these people do daily.
Searching the Internet has been useless in trying to figure out what internal corp. strategy folks actually do. Is it mostly cranking out decks and program managing a bunch of different initiatives?

BCG cross system staffing?
Let's say I want to work on oil and gas from SF, airlines from Denver, high tech (not old boring tech) from philly, etc. how easy would such staffing be to get?
I have interests in 2 industries - one of which is in my region, another of which is clearly only in another region/system.
Is BCG deteriorating in terms of culture and quality of people? The folks I’ve talked to recently (from BCG) are slip shod and not professional. Not sure if I had a “miss” but it seems across the board (comparing to McKinsey and Bain) that they are slipping in terms of caliber and reputation. Don’t even want to get into the decision to use a chatbot for interviewing 😳🙄
To what extent is BCG (USA) hiring again for summer interns? Are they hiring at full speed again? How are the chances compared to 1 or 2 years ago?

how do you study mbb prep material?
for ex, w/ crafting cases: there is a free 7-day trial w/ vids. do you think it would be a worthwhile investment to make flashcards of the content in the videos, study the content, then jump into mocks, or would it be best use of time to just go thru the vids/material, and immediately jump into mocks after w/o actively studying all the principles first?

When being asked “why MBB”, is in-person working a legit reason?
I joined a T2 last fall and have so far worked in-person with team for 3 days in total. I’ve never traveled. I’m positive that this working style will last at least throughout this year
While I like what I do (and I believe I’m decently well at it), I want to get more in-person working and traveling opportunities to connect with my team
