How do i find time to shortlist companies, interview / prep for exit etc while working the usual crazy consulting hours? How did you do it or any advice? (Associate here)
Have a final round interview with the CEO of a startup (~300 person company) - assuming the job is mine, what question would you be asking to make sure this is the place you want to join? Any help appreciated!
I mentioned during the interview process that I had a young daughter and the conversation immediately went to “you saw this position requires 25% travel, right?” I should’ve never said anything. 😔
Best way to prep for the McKinsey PEI interview?
Say there are two candidates, Candidate A has a 6/10 resume and candidate B has a 9/10 resume. If Candidate A has a referral at MBB, are they more likely to get an interview than candidate B? Or will they be about the same?
I'd love to hear about what people are doing to stand out in providing feedback for candidates who made it to the final interview stage but did not make the offer.
How many interviews is too many for a job? Company wanted 6 interviews and a case study presentation and I just dipped it’s too much. Is this unreasonable?
I applied to two jobs in the same job family at one company, & miraculously have had recruiters reach out to me about both. Should I let them know I’m talking to both of them? In this company, it’s normal to interview with different teams within the same job family
Show of hands; who has been laid off because your agency lost a big client? Also, when you interviewed for your next job did you feel comfortable saying that? And do other agencies understand?
I had 9 rounds of interviews with a company only for them to make a shit offer by the end of it!
Ok be honest, candidates. I really love this set of questions, I’ve been considering shifting my current interview style to these questions - I think they really give you an idea of who this person would be within the work setting. But the questions almost feel too deep for a recruiter to ask. What would you think if a recruiter took a different path and asked these questions instead of the usual ones? https://blog.shrm.org/blog/9-interesting-interview-questions-that-actually-reveal-a-lot-about-candidat
Referral for an interview for a dream job, emailed availability for Zoom meeting to the interviewer. Never heard back. Got an email this morning saying they waited on zoom for ten minutes but I was a no show. I looked at google calendar and the meeting was there, but never received a notification, email, etc. I emailed back immediately and apologized and they agreed to do it tomorrow. What do I say?
I’m interviewing for in-house and firm roles and I’m not sure how to navigate the compensation issue. My first job out of law school was with a state regulatory agency so comp was slotted and basically limited to salary and PTO. What should I be looking for when I interview in-house? With a firm? I don’t want to leave compensation on the table and end up feeling undervalued later.
I know my boss is interviewing. And I'm not surprised that nobody will hire him. But, I sure wish someone would!

Anyone here know anything or someone who works at TCS (Tata Consulting Services)? Have an informational interview with them and don’t know anyone who has worked with them before
Got to final round at McKinsey in January this year, didn't get an offer but got added to the Keep in Touch list, and the recruiter said I got good feedback but to wait a year before applying again. I started at Deloitte in October; if I decide to go for McKinsey again, is it weird to reach out again in January next year (having only worked for a few months at my current job), or should I go for it?
My last fee flights on Delta have been miserable (I.e. delays, RE-routes, going back to gate, etc.). Anyone else experiencing the same? I’m thinking about switching to another airline
I have a return offer following my internship for an MBB in my home country in SE Asia. However, I want to stay in the US after my MBA (salary, relationship, network etc.). Would it make sense to get offers from T2s to put pressure on my company to enable a transfer? If so, how would I best play this card? I would likely pick any US firm over any MBB at home, given the financial considerations.

I pack for a vacation in under 1 hour but for some reason I takes me all night to pack for a shoot because of our weirdo clients getting in my head about not looking homeless 😢 anyone else feel me??
Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.
Any insight on getting MBA from mendoza as far as prospects for transitioning into a post-mba strategy consulting role? It’s ranked outside the top 15 but from research seems like it still sends plenty of grads to top consulting firms (not MBB)
