Ever have an interview where you feel so seen you almost cry and that makes you realize you’ve been surviving in a toxic environment for way too long?

Please remember, interviews are like first dates. Everybody’s on their best behavior. Not trying to be a jaded cynic but you’ll only really know if you are genuinely ‘seen’ by actually working there fir a while. For your sanity’s sake, keep your mental guard up for while if you join.

Good point! I just feel like there was a connection. Chemistry. You know, like on a really great first date. Can that change? Possibly. Is that worst case scenario better than feeling crap going to the place you actually work every day? Hell YAS.

I had this recently! I was very excited and accepted the offer a month later. Job isn’t as great as they made it out to be but to your point, so much better than the last place. Good luck and hope you get out soon!

Any insight into Mastercard Advisors? Have a new grad opportunity there. My start date at a B4 strat got postponed so decided to interview around. I'm interested in data + analytics and would want to go into industry eventually, but conflicted because unlike BA programs at CapOne or Visa, you're still working for an external client. Feel like there will be a broader variety of projects in B4 and while I'm casually interested in fintech, I don't want to get pigeonholed in FS so early on

Do any of you struggle with the "tell me about the most stressful situation" interview questions?

All, you were right. My father in law’s rolex is a fake. I still got it fixed for him. It is a bad fake indeed. There is discoloring, made of steel, the insides don’t have rolex engraved etc etc. However the sentimental value prevailed and all the insights you gave me is a huge lesson for me in checking fakes vs originals. So thank you all!
