It was my first time doing any case interviews, felt that I prepared as best I could but didn’t perform as well as people who have more experience. My feedback was that they like me and my background but could tell I wasn’t used to the casing style as much as other folks. I was told to reach back out after a year and after more practice so I’m going to try my luck next year

Gotcha. Thanks for providing that info. I see you work at EY… are you in a consulting role? Did you not have to do a case interview to get into EY?

Started in audit and networked my way into consulting

Hi Fishes, I have 2+ years of experience in Java and now I'm holding 2 offers. 1. LTI - 7LPA (software engineer role - java developer) 2. Salesforce - 13LPA (Technical Salesforce Support Engineer role) Which one have to choose and I'm confused why salesforce paying that much for support role.

We are closer to the end of this initial selling than the beginning. All this technical selling on a 15 minute chart simply brings us back to a 4 Hour Halfway Back long of May 20 to Highs. And, we find support right in the middle of this HWB long. I think we can go a little lower to break the long in a dip below the 61.8% red line. Alternatively, we can hold here and rally. Either way, tomorrow or next week, we are due to rally 300 Nasdaq points. Take profits and be smart.
