BCG fishes - how come the application deadline this yr is so early? And what does “considered on a rolling basis” mean? I followed up with my school’s recruiter a couple of times but haven’t heard back, so I defaulted to here. Additionally, if I failed miserably at my first round last year, what are the chances that this would hurt me getting a ft interview this season? Would networking help if I’m already at a target?

Bombing first rounds (both cases) doesn’t get you at the top of the retry list.

I appreciate your honesty. In this case, should I try for a referral or would that not help either?

Hello,
I have 8 YOE in advanced Java and telecommunications domain currently. I am planning to relocate to Germany in near future and was looking for suggestions on what would be a fair salary ask in interviews for my experience and expertise, since I don't have much idea about Germany. My current CTC would be 30L.
Note : I am not looking for a salary just to barely survive.
Any suggestion is much appreciated.
Thank you

Is it really that difficult to get hired for a federal job? I was interviewed for a GS12 job but never heard back, they still didn’t hire anyone and I didn’t get a rejection.

I am still applying to new jobs but I was told it is impossible to move up the grade level now. Everyone is telling me to stick with the government. What are your thoughts?

Hi all, is anyone hiring entry level analysts?

I am a fresh graduate, born and raised in the U.K., who has recently moved to the region looking for work opportunities. I have completed various internships but am struggling to find a full-time job. Everywhere I interview says they are looking for experienced people, despite advertising entry level positions.

I achieved a 3.85 gpa from a Russell Group uni.

Any help would be really appreciated. Thank you.

I found a company I was really excited about working at. I applied for the job and went through 5 rounds of interviews. At the end they said I was OVER qualified and they want me for a different position higher up in the company. I was super excited they then had me go through 5 more rounds, 3/5 people were the same. The interviews mostly went "didn't you get the job, I highly recommend you? I'll just put you down as a 10". After those were done they told me I was UNDER qualified. Can't win!

Got a verbal offer for a sr consultant role at an FSI for 80K base, 8% bonus. Today, I see a job posting for the same job and company and the range is 68K-111K. The hiring manager in the interviews stated the range was 65-78K. HR just called and told me I have one day to decide. I haven't received the email/paper offer yet. This is leading me to feel off about this situation. What should I do? Its still a 15K pay bump for me.
