I caved an took 0.5 mg of xanax and drank a beer to cap off this hellish week (dw, I don't abuse either substance). Can't keep this stress up forever. Thankfully I've had some great interviews with companies this week and am looking forward to the outcome of those to find somewhere with a more manageable WLB and culture. Just felt like sharing. Best of luck to other fish out there who are struggling.

Last round of interview coming up for an analyst/associate role in IB M&A. I have 2 years of experience in Big4 M&A. The previous interview round was very technical, and the last round will be a ”business case”, which lasts about 3.5 hours, including a short introduction, 2-hour preparation, and a presentation. They will provide me the PC. What would you expect an IBD case study to be like? I’m not sure if I have to build everything from scratch or if I can use some ready-made layouts.

Interviewing for MBB...how do I spin my tech implementation experience to strategy consulting?
I started a new job a month ago and I think I've made a huge mistake. I wanted work life balance, went to a well-known company that has a reputation for it, and have quickly learned that this will be quite the opposite. I am beginning to panic. How do I deal with applying for jobs, specifically the issue of "erasing" this job from my work history without getting in trouble? I feel weird stating that my last job is my "present" one but is there any other option?
