Found my dream role at Apple that I seem to be a good fit for. What are the best steps I can be taking to land an interview aside from getting a referral? Would love insights from anyone who has gone through their recruiting process

Emotionally detach yourself from it. Even if you’re the most qualified candidate the chances that you get from application to offer at almost any single company are slim. Spray and pray my friend.

Try to get connected with hiring manager for an informational chat. That will increase your chances of getting an interview by a margin. Rest, hope, pray, and prepare. Good luck!

I have an interview coming up for Rev Strategy & Ops under Customer Solutions. This will be my 5th interview with Google, after things not working out for two other roles. I am so tired 😓 & with little confidence. The recruiters have all said I have had great feedback but it’s the cases get me. So many weekends have been spent prepping with the same result. Yet the recruiters continue to back me; placing me in the process for more roles. Just feel hopeless & like I’m letting good ppl down 😞

Hi 🐟, starting a grad scheme in Management Consulting at Accenture UK. Do you have any insights on standing out? I would like to transfer to their Strategy practice ASAP. On a side note, had a bit of bad luck as I aimed at Strategy Consulting in the UK so rejected BCG Poland for it and failed in a final round to McK UK, but then A did not think I got enough experience for Strategy so I'm looking for a genuine advice on this. I suppose interview wise I'm there.
