Completely bombed an interview yesterday, and I’m ok with that. I realized how wildly unprepared I was and how I can make it better for the next ones I have lined up! It’s ok to fail and learn from mistakes. Also my kids were running around in the background so hopefully that wasn’t the reason 🤣
Folks who have interviewed with Accenture Strategy recently, I have been told that there is no case interview. Only skills interview. Can someone please confirm if this is accurate? Thanks!
My interview for an internship lasted over an hour. Good or bad sign? It was more of a conversation than anything...
Have you were been asked to do a ballpark budget and provide director options before officially getting hired for a project? Feels like a lot of phone calls and research if they're still interviewing other candidates...
How different is interview prep for HBS Vs GSB Vs Wharton? Just trying to estimate amount of effort I’d need to put in if I get an invite (given already crazy hours at work)
Applied for UX Designer at Deloitte digital, appeared for all 3/3 rounds of interview. After the third and final round, haven't heard from HR in 2 days. How much time should I wait before moving on?
First time I interviewed at my current firm I didn't make it past my second round due to a bad review from an interviewer. Applied again a year later and got hired. In between that year, the interviewer who wrote me a bad review got fired due to poor performance. Moral of the story, it sucks that one person can mess up your job search so badly but don't give up! Often times it's not you, it's them!
How do I answer “why are you leaving Deloitte” in an interview without trashing my current job? The truth is that Deloitte has low pay, uninteresting work, and extremely slow career progression with little opportunity to differentiate oneself from peers, so I am looking at other firms which don’t have those issues.
Recently transitioned to a startup and my confidence has skyrocketed. Presenting, interviewing, making my point heard are SO much easier when I’m working with colleagues and not clients who I feel don’t want me there. For those who struggle with confidence, there is hope!

Best way to prep for the McKinsey PEI interview?
Hi everyone, I need your advice. I've been interviewing with MBB and Tier 2 firms over the past few years. However I was never well prepared for case studies. I now decided to take 6-8 months and seriously prepare for cases/mental math and try them again next year. I currently have Victor Chengs book and few others. What else would you recommend for me? How can i lay out a plan to study? Any source you can recommend free or paid?

Anyone here from KPMG Toronto IARCS? I would love to know more about what is done in that dept, what your day to day work looks like, work load, working hrs and salary
I used to be passionate about my firm’s people. Loved coaching junior folks and paying it forward with all the great mentoring I received early in my career. But my firm’s values and senior leadership priorities have incentivized a purely numbers vs people culture. It’s made the job so much less fun and personally fulfilling. Anyone also struggling with this and any advice?
My client made me an offer in a city I’m not excited about and know no one. But I absolutely love the company, the people, and I know I would be happy with good pay and work-life balance...(cont)
Does EY pay 100% for maternity leave 4 weeks before baby is due? I know they do 16 weeks post delivery but CA state law allows you to take 4 before due date. Anyone able to get it approved and paid?
My utilization has been so low since COVID closed off the offices. Should I be worried? Should I reach out to my relationship/career coach? Change to another group/line of service??
Ladies, looking for advice on when to tell job that I’m expecting. I am due early November. I’m on the bench, so being considered for multiple rolls. I’d start and then have to go on leave 2-3 months later. Any advice? Are there any specific rules? I was thinking of telling HR 30days out to start leave conversation. TIA!
I'm 25M with about 2k monthly savings after discounting all expenses and 401k. Any advice on how to invest 1.5k every month considering I would need $500 for food and other expenses.
What technical questions have you been asked on interviews at the senior accountant level?
Is it possible to push back on a parental leave policy? I work at a startup and they’re sharing with me the plan today (I’m the first pregnancy).
Any insight into EY’s IFCS practice? Thinking of applying to their open staff role from another firm, I’d be transferring out of audit.
Usually I try to live in the moment, but other times things come to mind from the past that make my life feel like it could be a soap opera. For example, I crushed on a guy from school for a few years, and one night as a young adult, found us both drunk alone in my apartment. A few months later he texted me and said he just got married at the courthouse and that I should be in the wedding party when covid was over. It shouldve happened by now but it hasnt yet…👀🙂
Just interviewed for this job that sounds superficially good but I think will take me back to the work I did 10 years ago but will pay my target salary and will have a fancy title (VP). I don't really want to do this but I need a job, have run out of UI and don't want to deplete my savings to nothing waiting for the perfect job. If offered, should I take it and continue looking or will it look bad? Changed jobs within 1 year once already. At least this job would be spinnable for what I want.
Recommendations on getting COVID tests on Oahu?
I got hired as a freelancer on a project. 2 days in and we’re off to a slow start getting access to what I need. It’s paid hourly. I blocked out time to work a full day knowing I’d dive right in but that’s not how it turned out. My question is do I bill the full day even though I only put in a few hours of kick off calls and contacting folks to get access to the things I need? It’s not my fault they were disorganized. What would you do?
So the VP of HR at my client was caught with a prostitute in his office this past weekend. Booooom!
