Sure! Always good to build relationships with partners. You can talk about what your current schedule looks like, what you’re working on so far, what your goals for the year are, ask for advice about what non client service things to get involved with. You can ask about their career story, perhaps they’ve walked a path you might be interested in.

That said, the recruiter has been responsive towards me, and hasn’t ghosted me but wondering what the reason could be for the delay.

I feel the need to share with people an awful interview experience I recently had. After 3 months of interviewing with a top 3 tech company, and being given a verbal offer, I was told that the company didn’t know if or when they could extend a written offer due to the economy and organizational changes in 2H. This was extremely dissapointing as I invested so much time and energy into a process that was very promising on the surface. I really hope others interviewing can avoid this situation.

Hey everyone! I know that it doesn't really matter what programming language you learn because in the end learning the concept is important. But I can't help to notice that in a lot of job postings, mastering a specific language is a requirement.

From your experience, does it really matter when you can learn on the go? Have you been rejected because you didn't know the language that is used by the company? If you're accepted regardless, what did you do/say to be convincing in the interview?

Lost a high performing SM to an industry job earlier this month. They were on track to becoming a Partner in 2022 but still decided to take an industry job which pays $400K. I tried to explain that they would make $600K as a first year partner and the income can go up to $1M in next 5-6 years. They still refused to stay in consulting because they think that becoming a Partner is just the beginning of the rat race and did not want to deal with sales/revenue targets for the next 20 years 😔😔
