Is McKinsey not hiring h1bs this year?
How is SAT/ACT factored into the MBB campus recruiting process? Does this test score make or break one’s candidacy? Wondering if a low SAT but solid GPA w/ good brand names and leadership experience will be good enough to get an interview
Had an interview 2 weeks ago that went really well. Haven’t heard a yes or no just emails asking me to stay tuned. What does that mean? Am I on a waiting list?

Anyone go from audit at B4 to a non-audit role at a young, growing company and can offer some advice on finding roles/selling yourself for the position?
Hello guys!! Can anyone of you please help me out? Or atleast some advice!! I'm a bit confused between Accenture and Bain & Company. I've offers from both of these firms with almost similar package. The role is not related to consulting but more into the technical+business side. If I go with Bain, will it be more fruitful wrt brand value and job switch in next few years? Also, how is the hike and compensation benefits for the employees at Bain? Any sort of help/advice is more than welcome!
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
I’ve got a 3 hour long callback interview via zoom coming up sometime in the next couple of weeks. How do I keep from becoming fidgety and zoning out?! Seriously worried
I’m starting to wonder if the Biden admin assigned Kamala this “border excursion” to watch her fail. I liked her better before she gave interviews.
Would exciting into state government be a good exit at this time. I assume positions are more secure, but am hoping to hear perspectives
Staff 1 audit, started in October..I was assigned to advisory role for summer..can I request to move to advisory in Fall or will I still have too little experience to ask for move
My company is bleeding talent! I took up a PM role 3 months ago at a not-so-hot smaller tech company. When I joined there were 8 PMs. Today, 6 of those have quit and 3 of those are in the past 3 weeks. We’ve hired 3 more since I joined. I haven’t built deep enough relationships here to probe about their reasons for leaving, but I’m really concerned. The company is undergoing many changing priorities and acquisitions in play which definitely could be why. What would you do in my shoes?
Do you consider time spent in a Master’s program, working ~20 hrs per week as a paid intern in a relevant position in your YOE? I’ve gotten mixed message on this from a variety of sources. Difference of 3 YOE vs 5 YOE at this point.
A day after I sent my signed offer to an agency and putting my two week notice to my current agency, I just received an interview request from my dream tech company ever that will allow me to get out of advertising. Should I still take the interview? And what can I say if I want to keep in touch?
Has anyone seen or discussed this Petition for SHRM must support Black Lives Matter & the LGBTQ community? I’ve grown increasingly concerned and disappointed in SHRM’s lack of vocal support for employment protections for LGBTQ+ and black and brown workers, especially as a black woman in HR. It seems like SHRM is overly focused on what is absolutely “legal” and not what is right. I’m of the opinion HR professionals must not only be “legal” but have a relevant and compassionate stance
I am an SAP FICO consultant on H1B. Got just laid off and looking for a job. Can you guys kindly give me some leads/referrals.
I know M&A has a terrible rep, but if there’s anyone who enjoys it (or at least doesn’t completely hate it), could you please say what you like about the practice? Interviewing for an M&A position and really do want to love the job, at least for a year. FYI, I’m retooling from lit, and no, staying at my current firm isn’t an option.
SF fish: how much do you pay in rent each month? How much do you make? Alternately, what % of your annual salary goes to rent? I take it the 30% rule does not apply in the Bay Area 😣
Anyone know how what the salary range is like for senior analyst for paid search at Edelman?

95% +Utilization, got a 4 of 5. (no raise, no bonus). I was benched last year due to awaiting my clearance (missed utilization) and got a 3 of 5 with a raise and bonus.
Regarding the politicalization of COVID, this opinion was shares somewhere else and felt compelling enough to discuss…..The right wing political parties are using anti-vax, Covid denialism as an isolating issue to radicalize their base. This does not get them more votes, because these were already their supporters, but it does make them far more entrenched in their views because of the social sunk-cost of alienating them from everyone else. The absurdity and high social and real cost of (Cont.)
What would you say is the shortest acceptable (wouldn’t raise questions) tenure in tech?
After consulting, how hard is it to change industries (i.e. from CPG marketing to tech marketing role)? Got a good job offer in CPG/Beauty but wanted to have flexibility in case I don’t like it
Why are firms so hesitant to fire low performers? It’s horribleeee for the teams that these people are on because everyone else has to pick up the slack
The PL on my case makes every feedback feel like a personal attack - not only towards me, but towards everyone else on the team. He is unpredictable and choleric - should I raise this topic in my...
Moms, do you have recommendations for formula? My baby is 5 and half months old, and I want to supplement with formula, just a few ounces every day. She had some Similac and enfamil samples, and don’t have any negative reaction with either.
Can we talk about those senior consultants that give you attitude when you propose them to embark in a project (with great follow up opportunities) and refuse because they think it is not fitting with their “career” plan and they want to “manage resources”? How do you deal with that ? TBH: I’m shocked with such attitudes. Which manager never had to work on content tbh?
I’m trying to fix my resume, so I can be fully prepared if more layoffs happen at ACN. I really want to include client names, rather than a long description. I know about the NDAs, but what if we’re not disclosing confidential info and the partnership is public? What do you guys suggest? I really want my resume to be noticed.
To those of you who have high billable requirements and are single, how do you manage your time? Especially those with pets.
Has anyone interviewed at D recently? Do they still do assessment centre for manager level hires? And is it normal to expect weeks between interviews?
Please help. I was laid off this past week. I am international and my OPT is coming to an end very soon. I had a call with an immigration lawyer and Deloitte unfortunately does not offers additional support for immigrants aside from said call. I am in need of a job ASAP. I have until July 24th to find a job or I will have to start a new educational program or leave the US. Leaving the US is personally not a viable option.
