Is it inappropriate to message a recruiter on linked in from a company I’m applying to to get a direct connection there? The company’s site doesn’t have anyone’s emails from the recruiting team
I have an important interview coming up and I’m so nervous I can feel every organ in my body tremble with fear.
Advice on dealing w/ difficult mgr? Specifically, she pushes team hard to get things to her review. Mgr doesn’t look at for 10-14days, then sends review comments and asks for updates by EOD/tmrw. Also not uncommon for her to interrogate team members about time they have charged, despite detailed time descriptions and hours being reasonable/in budget. Been 8 months working w her. I get anxious b4 mtgs w her. I have been interviewing. Unreasonable to ask counselor to roll off these engagements?
I’ve been feeling really down about my job lately. Last night I randomly applied for a job at EY-P that I thought I perfectly fit the bill for. Within 12 hours I was reached out from a recruiter and was asked to schedule an interview. Even if it doesn’t go much farther It feels like the confidence boost I needed to know there are other options out there for me.
Might be a paranoid mom question - my 16 month old is starting daycare next week. So far, I’ve had virtual interviews/meet and greet sessions with the daycare staff. Today we went in for our in-person orientation and I noticed that my child is the only non-white kid in his class of 8. Not entirely shocking, but in my head (and having seen pictures in their catalog) I was hoping there would be a little more diversity. Should I be worried about my kid feeling left out because he looks different?
Been wanting to relocate to Chicago from Dallas and started applying back in March. I’m starting to get discouraged after each final round rejection. Big sigh
I posted before regarding my long “McDreamy” type hair in interviews and whether it could hurt my chances at landing a new job at a firm. Pleased to report it in fact did not hurt my chances as I was made an offer and will most likely accept. Stay true to yourself, your skills, and your values and the right opportunity will come. Have a good weekend 🐠 fam!
How long have you all been interviewing for?
Anyone got their H1B stamped in Lisbon? How many days after the interview was your passport made available for pickup ? On the website right now it says 5 business days.
After you’ve connected with a consultant on LinkedIn what’s the best practice for asking someone to give you a practice case? To balance respect someone’s time vs coming off as transactional. Should you first ask for coffee chat, then later a case or can you ask for a case in your first “chat”? I am prepping for MBB interviews but I know consultants work crazy hours so I don’t want to take up more time than necessary - what would you prefer? What is the best practice?

Hi all - after the latest technical round, I got an email from talent asking me to fill out a candidate information document. The email didn't state if I cleared the interview or not. Does it mean I made it through the interview and there is a possible offer soon? or could there be more interviews even after sharing the filled document?
Does anyone here failed interviews from B4 a few times before getting hired? please share your experiences/path/solutions here. US only please.
Any tips on how to improve the quant section of the case interview? My arithmetic is okay but I have trouble coming up with the quant structure (good and quick) McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
Just signed my offer for a Product Manager role and ~100% bump in TC. After four years of being undervalued at Deloitte and two years of making it to final round interviews with no offers, it finally feels like it was all worth it. Hope all of you who are still searching get to experience this someday, and sooner rather than later. It can be done!
Hey ladies, what do you usually bring to an interview? For my current job I don't carry a "posh" leather backpack or anything, just a normal backback. d you think I can bring either that or a folder?
Best book to help prepare for interview? Last time I did an interview was 5 years ago so fee pretty rusty right now
Doesn’t feel great when the job you are interviewing for (that wasn’t advertised at all) is posted on Linkedin a few days after you interviewed 😞 Gotta keep looking...
I went into a store yesterday without a mask and I think I now know what being black is like. Everyone was just staring at me like I didn't belong. It was uncomfortable and eye opening

I know how the exact salary of the cohort of homegrown senior consultants at a B4 for the same role that I’m applying for. how much more should i expect for experienced hires for this same role with same YOE?

If majority of MBA applicants come from consulting, why is MBB still the most desired path for recruitment? Aren’t the bulk of folks tired of consulting going in? Seems no-one waits out for Tech recruiting...
So have a job offer from delta paying 80k and a job offer at eTrade offering around 110k. I like the position at delta much more, but I like the salary at eTrade. Any suggestions ?
Have a $1k allowance for home office setup. Any suggestions for what to get? I think I have everything I need but don't want this to go to waste, only stipulation is that a purchase has to "make me more productive"
Looking for input on a career decision. Me: 9 YOE, homegrown manager who is currently doing a stop in industry. I have an offer to return to consulting (M&A). My end game is pure strategy. Do I take the offer or wait for the opportunity to interview for pure strategy? My take is it’s more difficult to lateral the more senior you are in your career.
I wonder why D thinks that well being means scheduling a lot more zoom calls to tell us how much they care about well being but on ground everyone is still burnt out since we have such crazy targets. Thoughts ?
I'm a new hire and have no idea what to wear for the office holiday party. Any (serious) thoughts?

How did you cope with gender disappointment? I feel so guilty for not being excited but I just dreamed of having a girl and found out I’m having a boy. It sound silly
Someone in my group just jumped from Accenture as a senior analyst to Deloitte as a SC. I’m currently a C at Accenture but really tempted to make the jump and reach for SC or M. I know I’ll get paid more and do the same shit. Currently at 120k and I spoke to a SC at Deloitte that has the same position and they make 160k. I like the people here and the culture here though. But at the same time I want my next move to be out of consulting. Still worth it to make the move?
About to start traveling A LOT. Do people recommend southwest or United? Flying out of Chicago and equidistant to midway and ORD.
