Im trying to figure out how to follow up on jobs. One part of my mind is like they’re not into me leave them alone. Another part is interviewing takes time, following up is required. How do you manage this?

Have an upcoming interview for Tech strategy consultant with Deloitte as an EH. Recruiter mentioned 1 case and 2 behavioral interviews. Really appreciate if someone can share their experience and also touch on the following -
1) Case - will this be tech focused or random case interview? Is it similar to McK interview?
2) Behavioral - Typically how many questions per interview? Do they Grill and ask lot of followups? Appreciate a couple of examples
Thanks and apologies for cross posting here

I was interviewed for ACS business line and manager said they can't offer more than 26. I had mentioned 28 as my final expectation. Current is 22. Will they get back or shall I consider it as cancelled?
Got an application stage rejection yet again from Bain & Company for an AC role as an experienced hire (7months of work ex). This was after prepping up my resume for weeks and being told by some associates that it looked good. I can't even begin to land an interview it seems lol. I really don't know what to do differently now :/
How do you announce you are leaving when the firm is all remote? Schedule a zoom meeting? Call people? Also, is there a best way to convey to your firm that you’re going somewhere else?

Hey guys, I’m currently interviewing for a new position as my current contract is coming to an end in a few weeks. I’ve had a technical interview as well as a follow up interview with the Managerial rep for Daugherty… Aced both *As confirmed by my recruiter* however, they’ve requested I make myself available for a 3rd interview. Is this common practice? I really like them and would love to work if they make a good offer but I feel like I’ve been talking to them for a month already. Please advise
I have a salary range in mind for a new role based on online research and target increase from my comp now. But my research shows the data points are for salaries in HCOL areas. Do I need to adjust what I ask for if it’s a remote role and I’m not in HCOL city? Don’t want to overshoot and lose a great opportunity.

Hi, I gave interview for Developer profile (Experienced) on this Saturday, how much time does CTS takes to share the final results? Do they reply if in case candidate is not selected?
As per the interviewers feedback, My interview was good.
I gotta say, I'm really tired of getting prepped for my endless zoom meetings, staying on camera, and looking engaged while my clients look bored and text each other. It's just plain rude and I'm over it.
Hey can anyone help me with Analytical Skills interview questions? Would be a great help. Thank you.
Hiring Managers: if you have a candidate who has done the exact same job before and interviewed well, and another candidate who hasn’t done the exact same job before but has transferable skills, what would make you pick the second candidate? When I get feedback from interviews, it’s often ‘we are looking for someone who has done this role before’, and I don’t know how to move into a slightly different career if I can’t seem to land a job to begin to get experience in it.

Supervisor said I couldn’t have week off for vacation this summer bc another coworker of higher seniority asked off the same week and two people can’t go on vacation at the same time because of staffing.

This has never been a problem until this year (we got a new supervisor). we’re used to being short staffed anyway

I’m not sure if it’s too early to leave Deloitte/consulting for a lateral move, but I don’t enjoy the Deloitte culture/feel like I have no impact. I originally applied for a Senior Analyst role at Levi’s though and they bumped it down to Analyst bc of YOE.
