Have a power round coming up at McKinsey next week with 3 PEI & case interviews. Any insight on how intense it is compared to the previous round or how best to prep would be greatly appreciated.

PEI: Prepare two stories for each theme. Suggest that you don’t take this lightly.
Cases: interviewer-led, fairly easy to navigate as you’d know what you needed to solve the case for. Practice McKinsey-specific cases for longer prompts. The prompts are really long.

Hello, fishes.

Can anybody here refer me for a position at DE Shaw? Also, any insight on what should be included in the resume would be really helpful for me and others as well. I mean relevant projects/info related to the position should be included but anything else like resume structure etc.

Thank you so much.

I was in a very hostile work environment at Citigroup so I decided to leave the company to join JPMorgan Chase. But after over a year I decided to apply for an opening with a different team, went through all of the interview and the hiring manager wanted to onboard me. However, the recruiter was not able to get approval from the rehire team to process the offer so that didn’t go through. Does anyone know how to find out if I’m permanently ineligible for rehire at @citigroup
