Hat to a job interview = good/bad?
Hi Folks, Hope everyone is doing good and staying safe!!! I have given my interview on 28th May and hr discussion and documents upload was happened on 30th May. It has been two weeks but I did not get offer letter. Recruiter is not responding to my calls and emails. I am a lateral hire. Can anyone help me to get offer letter. Thanks in advance...

I have an interview scheduled for this Friday but I’m feeling very unprepared. I need more time to think through my professional experiences and how that translates to the role in question. How does it look if I move the interview to next Friday? Would that raise eyebrows?
Feeling a bit down today because I’ve been applying, interviewing and getting several rejections. Nothing seems to be working out … I know I’m close but it does not make the rejections any easier.

Interned at PwC this summer (going to be junior this fall), got a return offer for next summer that expires Sep 1st, got an interview with McKinsey approximately mid September and they said that I could expedite if I have competing offers. Does it help or hurt my chances of getting the Mck internship if I expedite and do it ASAP or will there not be enough turn around time in general to get an answer?

A company called DASH technologies reached out to me saying I pay 16% of first year salary once I get a job. They said they will get me interviews.

I'm applying as a Software Engineer/ Web/ Fullstack.

Question. My younger brother is applying to a Top 5 business school. They contacted him a few days ago to provide his full work history (he had submitted a one pager with only his last two jobs) because they were evaluating his application. Since I am in consulting, he asked me if that was a good sign because he hasn’t received a rejection. I told him that not at all. That it was SOP and it’s been a few days. But I am older and disconnected from the college app world. I figured I’d ask here
Thoughts on Dentsu Aegis? I've received an offer for a role (promotion) and thinking about whether it is a sound move - especially in this environment. They went through furloughs and pay cuts in April due to COVID. I'd be making the move from EY which is a great company to work with - but there is such a long line up to get a promotion, and for roles I've interviewed for internally I get the good ole - you were awesome and it was rly close, but someone was just a better fit.
I’m interviewing for BCG and had a principal reach out to me for a zoom chat. Is this normal for principals to reach out or is this a positive sign?

Thinking about buying a single family home for ~600k in the next year or so OR pushing it out an additional year to get a multi family for ~1m. Thoughts? Current HHI ~175k, $40k student loan debt ($200 monthly) no other debts (credit card/car etc) Project HHI for option two ~210k. Let’s assume I can save 75k for DP for option 1 and 150k for option 2.
What would you do: in discussion with a small agency to potentially work full time. They wanted to do a 60 day engagement first to see if its a good fit. Kick the tires from both parties makes sense. They asked for my rates and gave them an hourly freelance rate to where they asked if I’d be willing to do a rate that was based off my “future” un-guaranteed employment salary, less than $100/hr, which was less than half my freelance rate. Does this sound fishy? Am I wrong to be skeptical?
I have a friend who has like 5-7 years of regional firm audit experience. He would be manager for sure but doesn't have his cpa and doesn't want to get it (I told him to just do it but he’s stubborn). Problem is he's burnt out and wants a decent job working 40-45 hours a week and can focus on his true passion (mma fighting). Can anyone recommend a job/firm he should look at? Preferably a remote position. Maybe any other general advice?

I have decided to apply to grad school and need to write a personal essay. Can y’all give any suggestions or advice on things to be sure to include? The schools didn’t provide questions to answer.

Also applying to schools in London but live in the states.

I got an email from Kellogg to pick a virtual interview slot on a calendar. My friend who also applied got an email yesterday to reach out to an alum to schedule their interview. Any reason that we got different reach outs about scheduling interviews or am I reading too much into this?
