Interview Question: Understanding how many layers we usually have for interviews, how do you flex yourself when you are pitching the professionals to get the position? Do you usually repeat the same history told on the previously round or try to present “new assets”?
Has anyone else had a job interview screening through chat messaging on Wire? What the heck
I have been pursuing a job at a certain firm for over a year. They initially rejected me, but then offered me a job after I had already accepted and started at another firm. Well now I have been laid off and I reached back out to this firm. They called me 4 weeks ago and asked me a few questions, asked about my requested salary and mentioned a possible interview. Now it has been radio silence for 4 weeks. Should I just keep waiting?
I recently left an agency because of its toxic environment. There was bullying and gender discrimination. At my next interview, should I be honest about why I left?

If you get an offer a few days before you have a final interview (or while you're waiting to hear back), is it okay to ask for some time? Or do they expect you to answer right there? i'm in the final round for 2 different media positions in 2 completely different places (NYC and NC) and things are moving really quickly for both. the NYC job is my dream one but they're both offering $40k so i'm conflicted. any advice would be helpful lol
My dream agency interviewed me. Asked who my seniors were and poached one of them. I am a little rattled by this experience. Did they only interview me to see who the seniors are and what everyone did? Is this okay for agencies to do? I've only ever had 3-4 interviews so far...and I am not quite sure how to feel about this. Or if this is common. Or if I am overthinking.

Question about interview process: I’m transitioning my career to product design and have been applying for a new role. I heard back from a recruiter for a product designer position and asked me to complete a design exercise. The thing is that I’ve not even had a phone interview yet. Is this normal? Also, how long should a design exercise take? The only thing I received is a list of prompts choose from. Thanks!
Just got an interview for an in-house job at FAANG, but I recently accepted another job offer already. If I turn down this interview, will I ruin my chances later?
Anyone who interviewed with Goldman Sachs recently, how did the salary negotiations go? The couple of calls I received from HR, they want to pin down a number before even proceeding for the interviews. So just wondering if they negotiate it when giving an offer.
Had a final round interview with B4 consulting on Monday and spoke with a partner for 10 min. When is it okay to follow up with them about a final decision? Currently staffed and they wanted me to start in March. So wanted to give my team maximum time to backfill my position.

After having a pandemic baby, grinding non stop for the last year and dealing with massive understaffing cause everyone is finding new jobs - i’m done. Anyone have success talking a leave of absence at their agency and then rolling into contract/freelance work?
SF Bay Area small firm associates with 3 years experience or less: what are you making in base salary? Annual bonus? What’s your billable hours requirement (if you have one)? How many hours do you work per week on average? Are you plaintiff or defense side? Trying to get a feel for what average compensation looks like and what factors into it.
On a fast track for promotion, and also have a good standing/reputation already within my MM bank so far. I also have a complicated visa situation that my bank is handling. Not closed off but not really set on PE or anything. Is it still worth starting fresh and likely a delayed promo at an EB?
For our M&A folks, what type of interview questions can be expected for operational due diligence (buy/sell), carve outs, and integrations type interview? Thanks!

Always been with II-ranked teams and twice voted rising star. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
Man, i just found out i have a leak in my house water mainline. I am shocked to see the estimated cost. $1100. That will be the highest repair cost that i have to face. Man owning home can incurre lot of repairment cost. There goes my vacation budget in a drain.
What’s the difference in the types of exit opps between MBB and B4 consultants? Is the gap really as big as people make it or does it mainly come down to networking, relevant skills, and luck?

I am moving geographies and so in a bit of dilemma. The hiring manager reached out for a consultant level role, a level down from my current title. She said the Sr. con role just filled up so either I could interview for consultant level position or wait for a few months when Sr. Consultant positions opens up. I have limited client facing experience since I went from backend to front end and also opportunity to move to desired geography. Not sure how to tackle this smartly. Any thoughts?
