The first question is taste in humor, and you'll be asked to see if you've ever made a Deloitte joke to which you must answer, "I'm Deloitted you asked that". It's the only way to get to Round 2 interviews.

You just gotta have good taste to work at Deloitte. They won’t have it any other way.

you’ve gotten a lot of silly responses. there’s no such thing as taste level. clarify with the person that told you such non-sense. they will test you - on cases and will ask ‘fit’ questions as well

Is it possible they have a lisp and they actually meant test?

I clarified - and they said the recruiter definitely said “..the next round will be with 2-3 people on video to do a taste level and association interview”. Could taste level just be how well they think you’ll fit within the group?

Thats how I'm interpretting it but its kinda weird

Well I don't think they did a good job with clarification else you would have gotten the clarification. Ask them what does a taste level actually mean if that's what they said

Since it's something no one seems to be familiar with, I think it's fine to actually ask what it even means. Recruiter should be able to clarify. It's beneficial for them too to ensure the candidate is well prepped

Hey team, currently a grad in MC at KPMG, I do people strategy and change work.

Do I take it- I’ve been with KPMG just under a year, is it too soon?

I received an email today from recruiter asking for a phone interview which I’m so happy to hear from but I applied about a month ago. I moved on and applied internally for a different role as a transfer. This new role is a promotion and my start date is next week. I immediately responded back to the recruiter and agreed to the phone interview for tomorrow 5/4…. Do I mention any of the above to them? Do I tell them I just accepted a new role and different position? Please advise

This is a tough subject- but has anyone done selective reduction if they have more than one baby? I’m 12 weeks, twins. Also step mom to a 5 and 4 year old from my husbands previous marriage. His relationship with his ex is toxic at best. They do not get along and it’s hard to imagine them ever married. I did IUI to get pregnant and it worked- but I got 2 instead of 1. I’m scared shitless of trying to manage twins, along with his kids and his narcissistic ex. Selective reduction sucks (contd)
