Trying to exit into FAANG but know it may be a long shot involving a handful of rejections. Meanwhile got approached by a number of recruiters for a) smaller emerging startup <but need to shift geo>, and b) major banks for in-house strategy. I’ll proceed with interviews with a) since it will give me a flavour of tech recruiting, but should I even go through with interview process for b)? Thoughts? Fyi, have not interviewed in 4+ years!

I need INTENSIVE case interview coaching. (probably 10-12 weeks of daily sessions). Where should I look and how long should I be casing before submitting the application? I’m especially concerned about spending $5,000 just to get dinged at the resume stage. Any tips on how to navigate that?
Thoughts on Zoom job interview dress code? My instinct is a tailored dress or nice blouse. I feel like a blazer could come off as too formal but curious to know your thoughts/if anyone here has experience. Thanks in advance!
I worked for Deloitte and currently with PwC. I’m not comparing both but PwC is too worse in terms of work life balance and work culture. If Deloitte is given 90, PwC might get something between 20-30 is what I feel. All they need is robots working for their tasks. I do agree it depends on the manager sometimes and trust me he is the worst. Any comments on work culture and work@life balance in PwC SDC Bangalore ?? Is it only me or is there any one who shares similar views?? PwC
What's BCG culture like?
First time GMAT, scored a 650. Practice tests were coming in around 680, but bombed quant (41Q, 38V, 8 IR). I am confident that I can score better my next time around, but out of curiosity, what rank of school could I possibly get into with this score? 2 years work experience B4 consulting, very solid undergrad involvement/GPA. Trying to decide if it’s worth applying to my target schools this year or if I delay for another year in order to study more.
Any fishes from Hong Kong? I have an offer for Strategy SM at Accenture HK. Looking to find out info regarding pay range for negotiation. Any tips and info regarding the culture and the office is also helpful! Thanks!
Pondering. How many creatives struggle with the imposter syndrome. And even though you get into this business because you have talent, how do you stay true to that and not listen to the haters/ cancel culture that makes you feel like an imposter. I feel like I’m not alone, but I’d love some advice on how you guys paddle your own creative canoe.
What kinds of extracurriculars "count" for admissions? For example, I'm a serious musician and play in competitions and gigs; I also have some leadership experience from college that was pretty extensive (used it for all my job interviews) but hasn't continued since then. Also, how many activities do they usually ask for? Just trying to get a sense of how/if I should adjust my activities to be more "application-ready".
Can you wear business casual to an interview
Is anyone able to shed some light on the type of work done at McKinsey Digital Labs and BCG Digital Ventures? Also, insight on the culture would be great!
Annoyed with myself (and work culture): my neighbor came banging on my door this morning to tell me we needed to evacuate because there was a possible bomb threat outside our building. My first instinct wasn't to get out of there as quickly as possible for my safety; instead it was "oh I should grab my work computer and I'll go find internet somewhere so I don't miss a deadline." 🤦🏼
