what does failing a client mean?


How would you document around something?

How good is your grammar?

^Ah.. The politician approach. You guys/girls are good.

Why you want to change? Where do you see yourself in 2-3 years? Why do you think we are the right fit for you? So on and so forth. Pretty generic, the interviewers also google questions pretty often! ;) for the time you failed - take any challenging situation, say, you did not know how to deal with but immediately brought it to attention of senior personnel on the team - win win!

Thanks @Deloitte 1 , i was just wondering interviews would be any different/ difficult for experienced hires or if any technical questions would be involved

Depends on who referred you and your resume. I was an experienced hire as well and the questions were career related and not technical. They know you can learn and do the audit from your resume and referrals. What they care about is the other side!

Thats true @delotte1. thank you!

I wish they could just help make our scripts better instead of us having to beat theirs. Anyone else have this struggle?

I have an oppty to switch careers but worried about the $$$ I’m letting go.
