Please don’t waste someone’s time asking for a referral if someone else already gave you one. Most companies won’t let you have more than one referral and all you do is eat up someone’s time that is willing to help you out. It’s happened more than a few times now; just be honest that you want to learn more about a company / role and I’ll be just as willing to help you.
Tips for prepping for interviews? Clearly differs by school but in general what are the approaches you’ve taken to get clear on your story/resume and get polished overall?
What salary range should I be asking for? I am looking to transition from Audit to Forensic Accounting and have both my CPA and CFE. I also have 2 years of public accounting experience. I currently have 5 interviews all in Forensic positions.
Question, when you know you made it to the final round and have had nothing but glowing feedback from the interviewers. How long do you expect to wait for an offer, rejection, follow up? This is a mid-senior management position which I am well qualified for. I am just new to the tech space. Side note, we talked compensation and start date already.

Accenture AI, Big 4, and MBB which one is the best consulting company for Data Engineer or Machine Learning Engineer role? Thanks.
Hi all! I have interviews at BCG coming soon and I need to get up to speed on case interview preparation. I’ve never had MBB case interviews before and I’ve just started my preparation on crafting cases. I’m hearing quite a lot that it is important to practice with other people to have an optimal preparation and was wondering how true it was? I have nobody to practice with at the moment and I honestly don’t realise how crucial it is… any thoughts ?Boston Consulting Group
Anyone from LEK nyc willing to connect / potentially refer? (3.5 YOE looking at AC role)
Should i consider joining Microsoft Global Deliver Center(MSGD) as Technical Consultant? Is that a good role? Is it a good company? Not much info is available on this. Anyone having knowledge please comment. Edit: I should specify that its not Microsoft India Development Center (MSIDC) where core product development is being done
Exited to industry and feel as growth is limited - is it a bad idea to boomerang to consulting and then exit again at a higher level? I see 5-7 yoe exits and they seem to be the people who get high visibility roles with great compensation
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
I think I’ve finally reached the point where I can confidently say that I do not want to be in consulting a year from now :) I want my evenings back and I hope with 2 -2.5 YOE and a PhD I can land a good AD role in industry (corp strat / BD at a mid size biopharma). I’ll start putting feelers out next spring - wish me luck ladies! (And obv any practical advice is more than welcome). I went back and forth on this because I was afraid I wouldn’t find good opportunities without significant YOE

Saw an article recently how companies are investing in surveillance tools to evaluate the "productivity" of their employees since many transitioned to remote work. There are trackers out there that would screenshot your current desktop view at intervals, how long you've been typing/clicking, etc... it feels incredibly invasive. I think this needs to be listed very clearly in the employee handbook. Has your company been transparent with you about how they are tracking you?

I’m trying to reckon with what I’d describe as a culture of fear surrounding partners/leadership and the unconditional respect they’re often given. I’ve seen some whack behavior from partners that just goes unchallenged. Is it mainly politics? Faith in their vision? Precedent?

Anyone think this quarantine will just accelerate outsourcing work? Especially once they get a hang of optimizing remote work/training?
