Do you ever go through an interview totally prepared and you’re thinking “I am seriously nailing this!” And you leave it feeling super good, but you remember one thing you said that could have been misconstrued, or something you did that was maybe weird, and by the next day you just feel like you completely bombed it? No, just me? Are there any true indicators for knowing whether you did well in an interview or nah?

Tbh anyone who says they don’t do this is lying 😊 As someone who’s recently interviewed with a few different agencies (& just hired!) as well as been an interviewer for previous roles over the last 6 years I can say the best indication of whether or not it went well is how it ended. First impressions of course are incredibly important for setting the tone of the conversation, however, the first thing anyone completing an HR new hire form will remember are the last things you said to them. If you’re unsure about it, too (and haven’t already) it’s definitely worth sending that follow up thank you email. And, if you’re working with a recruiter, you can check in with them and ask for the feedback they’ve received. In my experience they are always open and willing to share with you the general feedback they’ve received from the team. They’re also typically incredibly responsive and will help to quickly ease the stress you’re feeling. Good luck!!!

I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.). I work with reps at these places as part of my job, but technically their loyalty is to my clients (the ones spending $ on their platform), not to me, working at the client’s creative agency. So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?

I need help: In consulting interviews, is it a death sentence to have been part of the COVID-related layoffs at a Big 4 strategy arm?

I’m getting beaten down here. I have 10 years consulting experience, 7 at health plans, 5 in strategy, and 3 as a manager. I know my industry, function, and story. What am I missing?

Hello all, I’m currently in the interview process with EY. I’ve already had my interviews and the next step would be an offer letter or rejection. I reached out to the recruiter a week after my final interviews, and they responded saying this “I am awaiting next steps from the hiring partner at this point.” Can someone expound on what that could mean? Is that a positive sign of receiving an offer?
