Strategy role is unlikely as that goes to people with mbas. We dont poach from our partners....but the uk is a bit different. That being said....we usually look for people with 6 years of experience. We also want people with cloud experience. Personally....I think too many things are lined up against you. I'd put the likelihood of you joining us at leas than 10% unless you are out of this world amazing (lots of languages, experience on off hours, etc)

Thank you for taking the time out to respond! All very useful!

(2/2) I am hoping to secure a full-time position within the strategy or sales team following this contract. I believe it would be easier to network and secure a referral from within. I realise I am taking a significant pay-cut for a contract position but I still live at home with parents and I don’t have any real ongoing financial obligations. I am 24 years of age and joined EY fresh out of university. Some friends and family are calling me crazy for considering this... keen to hear the opinions of fellow professionals. I guess for this specific bowl, I am keen to also understand from fellow Googlers and Ex-Googlers how it is transitioning into a full time role as a contractor? Do you think I would be able to secure a position in strategy or sales if I network and make the effort? Is the data management analyst role a good role?

Hi, I had 2 interviews with EPAM. I got positive feedbacks and the Recruiter assured that soon we will have final round and roll the offer. 2 days after this Recruiter said that the concerned person is on off and the interview will be delayed. 10 days- Recruiter says that due to org specific reasons this is getting delayed. I asked specifically if the issue is with respect to Designation or compensations asked for. Recruiter says this is due to changes in management. Is this common in EPAM?

Why do recruiters waste candidates time by asking them to pursue jobs with a lower title, less compensation and a smaller scope?

I frequently get recruited for PM roles at small companies offering 80-100k. What is the recruiters thought process?
