It helps them gauge timelines. For example, if they know you’re in the final rounds somewhere else, they can try to quicken the interview process so you’re not forced to accept another offer while still interviewing

So they know how fast to push internally if the team is interested. Really no secret.

Thanks for clarifying everyone!

They want to know how serious you are bc it helps them gauge how much time to spend helping you. That’s my assumption.

Hello Deloitte H-1B fishes, Traveling abroad and don’t have a Deloitte phone. I was told I can access webmail and DTE on a personal device. Is there anything else to be concerned about? How would I access STAFFIT? Year-end impact statements? Any personal documents on ToD I should download? Already have pay stubs and employment verification letter for visa interview. I’m also in the middle of a PERM application so not sure if BAL would need other documents from Deloitte’s system while on PTO.

I applied for an engineering manager role at a fast scaling startup. My second interview went very well to the point where the manager told me to connect on LinkedIn in case I have more questions and the internal recruiter should get back to me soon. That was Wednesday. I sent a follow up email to the recruiter expressing that I enjoyed the interview and look forward to feedback. It's now Monday and I am wondering how long I should wait before reaching out again if at all?

So just interviewed for a Revenue Agent position supposed to receive initial offer within the next couple of weeks based on what the manager was saying. Part of me definitely likes the idea of a 40hr work week with no other crazy obligations/metrics or needing to do extracurricular stuff to get a bump in pay. The manager guy said generally they put you at a low step so pay obviously isn’t spectacular. Now entering my 3rd year as a SM is it worth taking a pay hit or would you try industry?
