Interviews tomorrow for Microsoft but 5 rounds of 1 hour each spread into 2 days. Is this common?
One time my coworker and I on a trip thought we were walking into a new client meeting (good relationship, not cold) to get briefed. They told us Oh, we thought you were presenting. 2 hours to meeting. Open the laptop in the car as he drives down highway. Write a pitch presentation in Word. 3 half page ideas. It’s for their Olympics sponsorship activation and they’re a billion dollar company. Throw it up on the screen, dance around and bring the ideas to life. Won the business! Lol
Was a bit caught off guard this week when I received notice that I was not moving forward in the interview process for a position in-house after being asked to apply by the person hiring and subsequently told I would move forward to the next stage b/c they were very interested in me. Given the sudden 180 & the fact the position is still open, I assume there was a concern about me that came up but literally no idea what it could have been! Would love advice on if (& how should ask for feedback?
Trying to figure out my freelance project rate for work with an agency. I know at my level, if I was a FTE, my rate would be between $300-$325 an hour at this agency, so am trying to translate that into a reasonable freelance hourly rate to then create a project estimate off of based on estimated hours. Am wondering how much agencies typically mark up freelancer costs when billing clients? Thanks in advance!

First time dad, getting ready to return to work after being out on paternity leave for ~5mths (mix of leave and vacation). Any advice on getting back into pre-baby productivity and efficiency? I’ve been out so long and Covid has changed so many things now, I feel like a new joiner having to adapt to a new WFH world. Thanks for any tips!
I’m a total lard ass after WFH for almost 2 years and I’m starting a new job that’s mostly in person. None of my cute work clothes fit to boot so I have to figure out what I’m going to wear while working on losing the weight. Great.

Thoughts on what to do if the goal is to end up consulting at MBB after graduating? (MBA candidate). Tried posting this in the consulting bowl as well but couldn’t.

An intern kicked off her first day of her 2-month internship saying she was stressed out because she needed a job. I’ve since been slightly unimpressed by her performance (it’s not creative - other story) but believe she can be formed. How do i tell her that you don’t tell a future potential employer that “you’re stressed out because you need a job”? They don’t understand it’s like dating (“im stressed out because I need to get married”) and want to set her up for success for the future.
