For all the McKinsey & Company fish, I just got my new updated offer:

112k base; 18k max performance bonus. Old offer was 100k base; 30k max performance bonus.

Is the new offer better? For campus hire BA role btw.

My interview got over on June 29th right after the interview the recruiter called me and told I’m selected and they will be sending the offer letter. He mentioned there will be a delay in releasing the offer letter since merging is happening right now. few days back I sent a mail to HR.. but no reply. and after that I received a mail stating they are no longer considering me for this position. Does this happen to anyone else ?

Got let go from my job in May and have been applying for people ops/hr coordinator, recruiting coordinator, etc. type roles without any luck. Does anyone know of any companies that are hiring? I have 2 years of experience and am starting to feel discouraged
