I got interviewed at PwC for Associate role in Delivering Deal Value (DDV) practice. The interview was taken by a senior manager. It was a good experience (around 30 mins duration). He told me that the next round would be conducted by director. But it's been more than 15 days since the interview and there is no communication for further rounds. Does it confirm a rejection??

Hi super mamas! I desperately need advice on toddler sleep training! Our daughter was sleep trained when at 7 months and she’s been the best sleeper ever. Now she’s 2.5 YO and starting to not want to sleep until I stays in her room until she falls asleep and she also wakes up 1-2 times at night crying asks for mama and walks out of the bed until I come in and put her down- by sitting next to her bed. If I don’t go in, she would sit on the floor outside of her bed for hours without sleeping!

I have terrible attention to detail. I have a list of things I always check for and I review materials multiple times before sending. But then there is always a small thing that I missed - a number that should have been adjusted, or I attached the local copy with the same name rather than the online copy.... It is extremely frustrating as it is holding me back in progressions. Any suggestions? Did anyone overcome this? I don't feel depressed/tired/burnout... Am I mentally challenged? Haha

I interviewed with Slalom Consulting a few of months ago and cleared all 6 rounds.
