Completely bombed an interview yesterday, and I’m ok with that. I realized how wildly unprepared I was and how I can make it better for the next ones I have lined up! It’s ok to fail and learn from mistakes. Also my kids were running around in the background so hopefully that wasn’t the reason 🤣

I'm in final rounds w a large tech company (interview already scheduled), but I saw that the company just removed the job posting I'm applying for on their website. Does this mean they already selected a candidate and I'm wasting my time? Or does it mean they have enough candidate selection for the final round to where if I have an offer, I'm less able to negotiate since the company has a lot of back up candidates. First time leaving consulting so all of this is new to me.

Looking to improve my verbal communication and interviewing skills. I am not very succinct and tend to ramble on. My vocabulary and phrasing is pretty standard and many times I struggle to find the right words. I do well when I am prepared but do an okay job with speaking on the spot. I want to get sharper in my verbal communication and more confident. For context, I am not a native speaker and at the SM level going for Partner in a couple of years.I would love recommendations on how to improve.

Hi everyone. I just received an offer to jump to another consulting firm. As part of the hiring process this new company does a background check (employment and education) which they’ve stated should take about two weeks or less.

Ideally I’d like to leave as much time in between the end and start for rest and relaxation. What do you all think?
