Used to live in nyc and miss dressing like all of the above. In Austin now, interview clothes are “does it smell?” People here dress, how do I put this nicely, comfortably. Your surroundings and interview environment matters. Wear what fits the bill and makes you”look” part of a team. Even if that’s ripped jeans, sneakers, and an oversized sweater 🙄

Oh I hear you! I worked in London UK and now live in a city where people also like being comfortable. And I have to fit in, so I basically feel sad for not being able to dress up well like before because I’ll stand out too much.

SAD1 me too!

Looking for help to negotiate offer: recruiter brought up comp expectations twice during interview process and asked if I was ok with 110-120 salary. Offer came in near the low end. Can I ask for higher (125) now that they’ve extended an offer? The role is a step down in terms of level so we’d discussed coming in closer to the top of the range. I also have a retention bonus at my current firm that I didn’t bring up as I wanted to wait until I received an offer.

Thinking of applying to M7 schools and really unsure about my chances. I am latin american, started in a LatAm office at MBB and x-fered to the US last year. I have 3 YOE and a military background. I have an engineering degree with pretty bad GPA (3.1) and a solid GMAT (730). Is M7 out of the question due to GPA? or is the MBB brand and financial sponsorship strong enough to overcome? What are your thoughts?

Recruiter called today and she asked my comp expectations before I asked the comp range for her roles. I made the mistake (?) of saying my range first. Is there any way and is it appropriate to flip the question around? Or to just refuse to answer? Also, recruiter asked where I am with other interviews and what kinds of other ops I'm entertaining. I said I have several interviews lined up and vaguely named some industries (big tech, HF, VC, etc; all true). Is that bad / too much info?
