Could anyone please tell me about the recruitment process for BCGDV (BCG Digital Ventures) ? I passed the 1st round and have a 2nd round with a Lead but unsure if there is a case study. Asked my HR coordinator who said it will be 45mins on past experience and competencies but no need to prepare. Still not sure about case studies and if yes, what type? Thank you
If it's not requested in the job announcement and it's not required to complete the form, do you have to submit your transcript when applying to MBB?
Howdy fish, currently interviewing at KPMG for a associate role in major projects advisory. I’ve gone through the phone screening and the interview with 2 directors. Next interview is with 2 SM. What kind of questions can I expect in that interview?
Working with an (external) headhunter for a role, and just found out they want me to proceed to the second round of interviews. I had told the headhunter after the first round that I was interested in moving forward (although I did express some concerns I had) but after thinking about it, I’ve decided I’m not interested in the role. Does it look bad to go back on my word and drop out of the process now?
I'd love to connect with other elementary librarians to discuss lesson ideas, class management styles, etc.!
Laid off. Applying to jobs. Besides networking, what are the top job search platforms/websites? There’s LinkedIn, indeed, monster and Glassdoor. Anything else I’m missing or which is the “best”?
Looking for advice. I’m currently interviewing for a position that pays $20k more than I make now. It seems like the job would not be giving me much for my portfolio and may have some work/life balance issues (but tbh what agency doesn’t). I’ve got piles of student loan debt. I’m only in year 2 of my career. Do I take this job for a year, deal with the downsides, pay off a huge chunk of my debt, then get back to fun stuff? Or will it hurt my career to have a portfolio gap?
Are you finding it easy or challenging to translate your "in person" lessons to an online format?
One of the best business lessons I ever got was from the Simpsons. Bill gates destroyed homers computer and Internet business and told him "you don't get rich writing lots of checks"
On an MBB case R1 interview, interviewer asked if I had info on future communication and I just said "Just finished R1 and R2 is going to come presumably based on R1 interviews", potentially implying that I thought nailed the case. I had not. I knew I'd bombed it. 😅😂🤦♂️ I literally found a way to bomb again in the last 30 seconds.
Lessons from GoT - fake it till you make it - really good people will either be put on shitty projects or chose to leave - partners will consider everything except improving lives of people

What is one lesson you learnt from 2020?
Super unhappy with my current project/firm and looking to pivot quickly. Struck out at an MBB final round last week, had been prepping for a while. What’s the best course of action moving forward? Continue networking, applying, and trying to get referrals? Not sure how much longer I can take it doing current work. For context, went to an Ivy and have 2YOE. Any help’s appreciated.
What is the purpose of a flipped classroom? Some teachers are doing their lessons via video so the kids are prepped before class. Then, what do they do in class?
What was that trainwreck last night?!?!? I know we're not supposed to talk about politics, but my comment is bipartisan. Our gov is a mess and our leaders unbecoming! What will our students learn from this? What can we do to make it a teachable lesson?

A lesson on bureaucracy: Red tape works both ways - watch as I divest the Tax and Audit practices with no way to stop me. 😇
If you work through a vacation planned in advance from your vacation hotel room, can you expense this to the job WBS? Wouldn’t have incurred $XXX/night if it meant just working from somewhere else.

Hi 🐠! My firm is willing to file an EB3 GC for me, however I’m from a highly backlogged country and was wondering what’s the realistic timeline for it from start to finish? The process seems to be stressful, to say the least. Alternatively, I have the ability to venture out into Canada (as I’m yet to pursue my MBA, after which I plan on pivoting into a diff. industry). What would you do?

What is it like working in PE? What type of work do people in this field normally do from week to week? Is the field generally taxing with tons of working hours or does it vary on company, industry specialization, team, etc. Currently a Big 4 management consultant and a head hunter reached out about a PE Equity Operating Associate role in the southeast region.
