Not awkward in the slightest, spent 10 years in industry, I’m astronomically better at this and far more credible than my peers, because of the experience of having purchased consulting services.

I would also add I have more confidence than my peers who never left. I constantly get told this.

Hello Fishes. I have received positive feedback from KPMG interviews for consultant position and have submitted documents. I was told I will be getting a call from HR for negotiation in a day or two and then final offer letter will be rolled out. It has been 4 working days and I haven't been contacted yet. Has anyone faced such delay? Or Is it something I should be concerned about?

I had an interview with a company I am very keen to join. I have met with 3 people so far and will speak with one more later today. I felt very off today and I don’t feel I put my best foot forward. The conversation was with the companies CHRO and I’m going back and forth with myself with whether I should email her thanking her for her time and adding information about how I feel the conversation went. I feel it could be a double edge sword but curious what others think.
