How do you manage multiple consulting job interviews? Big 4’s take time, and timing/getting the offers in time to make the best decision can be tricky.
Curious to hear thoughts. How many rounds of interviews do you consider acceptable/helpful for a new role? And would you refuse an interview if it went beyond a certain number?
