Does anyone have any advice for standing out or improving my chances of getting a job through DOJ Honors? I got an interview this past year for the commercial litigation branch, but I’d love some advice on how to seal the deal this year.

Hey! I got an offer from the Honors program for a 2019 start date, but it wasn’t in my area of interest — as far as I remember, the interviews are very straightforward, but the Program can place you anywhere, so just be careful not to get to invested in any one particular practice area (unless that’s changed over the past few years).

Congratulations! My friend is in DOJ Honors. He stated that they are looking for people who have a genuine interest in public service and that should come off in your interview. Good luck!

I’m concerned about my mom’s health and want to work closer from home. Is this a valid reason for me to apply to a consulting job that is closer to home? I’m a recent college grad in the US and I’m the only child. My current firm’s office is ~2 hr from my (mom’s) home. I can’t live with and take care of her once the WFH is over. I saw that some of MBBs have offices pretty close to my home (~10 min). When applying to the positions, can I mention that I want to take care of my parent?

I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2

Got to final round at McKinsey in January this year, didn't get an offer but got added to the Keep in Touch list, and the recruiter said I got good feedback but to wait a year before applying again. I started at Deloitte in October; if I decide to go for McKinsey again, is it weird to reach out again in January next year (having only worked for a few months at my current job), or should I go for it?

it feels like every survey about working from home is (poorly) designed to answer the useless question "would you rather work from home or from the office." I submit that the set of people who prefers to have only one of those two options, always and forever, is the null set. which means it DOES NOT MATTER because the correct answer is always going to be "make both possible." you're welcome, HR departments everywhere.
