Guys what is the big step up from Associate to VP? Currently at a boutique but interviewing for a relatively big and well known bank so I am a bit clueless on how a VP would operate in a much bigger environment than mine.
Do you ever go through an interview totally prepared and you’re thinking “I am seriously nailing this!” And you leave it feeling super good, but you remember one thing you said that could have been misconstrued, or something you did that was maybe weird, and by the next day you just feel like you completely bombed it? No, just me? Are there any true indicators for knowing whether you did well in an interview or nah?
So I applied to Accenture M&A for manager level. I had 2.5 years at D doing M&A as SC, plus 2.5 years prior in an ops consulting role. Spent last 4.5 years in Corp strategy (no deals though) team overseas. Had two great interviews with SMs. 2nd one spent his time convincing me to not try for SM and stick to M. Anyways, after MD interview I hear back they want to offer me C level. I told them no, and to check if they would reconsider. WTF happened?Accenture
I had an interview with PepsiCo. I was looking for 140 to 150 salary and they said they could only do 112k. It’s a lot of money to leave on the table. I told them I don’t wanna continue with the process mainly cause I don’t wanna waste their/my time. Do other 🐠 s continue with the interview process in hopes of convincing the hiring team to offer you more money because they really like you￼?

I just finished my final interview with a partner this past Wednesday and my recruiter told me I should hear back with feedbacks on Thursday. Today is Friday and I was wondering if I should follow up with my recruiter? I have a pending offer from a different firm and she knows that I don’t have much time. She did expedite my interviews due to this reason but I feel like I’m just rushing her every time. Do you guys think it’s fine to follow up and see what the current status is or wait?PwC
Is there anyone else out there who keeps getting ghosted by agencies after interviewing for jobs? I've been applying to jobs for months. I've constantly been changing my approach and techniques. Yet I keep getting ghosted by agencies - sometimes even after I reach out asking for an update. I guess I just gotta assume that my acceptance email got lost and move on. 😂

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance.

Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

Any thoughts on ESPPs? I finished a final round with a startup who was acquired by a well known corporate company in late 2020. The startup used to offer stock but now employees can only buy stock through the parent’s ESPP at a 15% decrease of market rate (currently $300/share). Base would be $140K, 10% bonus. Do you think negotiating for more base because there’s no stock in TC would be a good idea? And any experience with ESPPs?
