Good friends in the practice. Seems boring and hours are rough. He does a lot of research on the implementations of accounting standards for companies and writes tons of memos on it. Probably more thought provoking that audit at times but very dull

Look at Deals! Imo it is super interesting. The valuations group has a lot of ex-investment bankers / private equity folks and the valuations range from enterprise value valuations for impairments or as another example taxation for the awarding of stock to a private company CEO. Then a fair amount of PPAs. Then also every now and then a consulting gig like an opinion over range of value (quasi fairness opinion). They back the CFA. Imo a number of people do CMAAS thinking it’s deals but then realize that “transactions services” FDD and valuation are TS later.

Finally managed to receive an offer from my dream firm today. Now I’m intimidated and doubt I’ll be able to perform up to the expected level. I don’t feel like they gained a good picture of who I am / challenged me enough during the interview process. How to find out if I’m ready for the new job?

Might be a stupid question but the recent EY reorg has me confused. If all your interviews are with legacy Parthenon people, that means you will be joining that team right? Or could you end up in OTS?

I've been interviewing at a new agency where HR has been consistently late to interview calls and meetings, I haven't been given documents like JDs and handbooks as requested, etc - overall it's given me a bit of a poor impression on the agency and has left me a little less than keen to join. Am I just overthinking things?

Bad at case interviews... Ugh. Does this mean I won't be a good fit for strategy related roles?

I’m interviewing at a unicorn startup and 25% of my case study involves doing light revenue projections. Unfortunately, this isn’t something I have a ton of experience in (I know, I know...) since my background is in program management. It’s not core to the role I’m applying for, but I may be expected to use the revenue projections as a data point to make decisions. Would you consider it cheating if I hired a tutor to help me with this case study?

Currently working as a billing and collections specialist in the Finance Department at a law firm. I’m hoping to move into more or a strategic/analytical role in a new industry, possibly tech or marketing, but have had trouble getting past the first round of interviews since my current role has not made me super marketable. I’m working to build up my resume by taking online courses but that doesn’t seem to be helping. Any advice?

I’m Indian and my name is too, but I can abbreviate my first name to an white-sounding name (not my name, but for example Sidhart to Sid). Will this help me get more interviews? My last name is Indian too, but not noticeably so.

Does anyone know someone who was placed on a pip who then found a way to get on medical leave so could apply to jobs while still employed? (Idea being that you greatly extend your opportunity to look for jobs while still being able to say you’re at current firm. Example: Person gets 1 month pip, gets medical leave, then is able to look for new jobs for many months rather than 1 month. If you don’t know anyone, any opinions on how this could work?
