Or, better advice: blow it and go to a much better firm.

Is it harder to get in, or easier to get laid off 😆

How desperate are you? Even if you are, show up as if you never wanted this job. And then speak normally.

Don’t be nervous. You’ve got this. Just bring a bottle of good scotch as a gift for each of them, opening it and pouring them a glass to start the interview.

This sounds like my interview at PwC a few years back. First round was with a partner followed by a manager and finally by another director. All three of them will look for different qualities in you while being inter in your subject matter. The partner is more interested in trying to find out who you are, how you approach a problem, and your best qualities. The interview by manager was fairly technical in nature. Finally the interview by the director was more about working in teams, cultural understanding etc. Be confident of your subject matter and just try to talk with everyone. Ask them questions and try to build a relationship. You will be fine.
