Considering quitting my 16 hour/day job to free up time to go all in for prepping for a Google Manager position. Good idea or bad idea?

Thumb rule - Don’t quit before you get the next job. Study on weekends.

It is much easier to get a job when you have a job. If you leave without having the next one lined up, you will have to explain why, and your judgement may be called into question, even though you made a legitimate personal choice.

Maybe good or bad depending on whether quitting will create stress to deliver during that interview. Some of us fail solely because we have all eggs in one basket and it's a do or die situation. Some of us also take that challenge well and deliver peak performance during the interview. I am someone who does very well when I've prepared well, so I go all in on researching for the interview. If this means I need a break or quit what I have, so be it. I know a lot of people will consider this a risky move, but if that job is truly what you want, do whatever it takes (prep wise) to get it

AT Kearney, what type of role was it? Ive actually been interviewing since November myself, about 7 different roles, twice i got onsite, but didnt pan out cuz of my preparation. funny thing is each interview ive "upgraded", first onsite was for a Associate position, 2nd onsite for Program Manager position, now its for a Strategy and Operations Manager position. Tomorrow is my 2nd phone screen, and we'll see after that if I make it...

Try Facebook as well. They are also looking for people with consultanting profile.

Can you ask for an internal role?

It depends whether you have the interview lined up yet or not

Also depends on your network at Google. I've been job hunting since late September. Had a couple of first rounds at Google that initially didn't pan out. Finally received an offer for a role where I started the interview process back in December. The process can be lengthy...

Mine is for a stratops role where a fair amount of my consulting work aligns to the role. So I consider my quite fortunate and can see why I didn't advance farther with my other interviews...

Philosophical question (not trying to be political, just a genuine question I’ve been grappling with): do you think being pro-choice and pro-vax mandate are logically inconsistent? Both are sincere views of mine, but upon further reflection I haven’t been able to think of a way one position could be completely defended without undermining the other. Goes the other way for pro life/against vax mandates as well. The fact is, they just feel different to me, but I’m not sure why. Thoughts?
