Investment consulting is different than strategy / management consulting. It’s usually providing investment advisory for institutions (endowment & foundations, pensions, family offices). You evaluate fund managers and tell clients which funds you think are best to invest in. Haven’t interviewed at Mercer before but would just Google / prep for questions like how you would choose a fund for a portfolio.

Hey folks, any thoughts when you finish last round of VO and haven't heard back from recruiter since then and still goes without update for more than a week (6 business days). As the HR didn't reply my email sent 4 days ago, I was wondering if I have to ask him again. This is indeed one of my most wanted job and I regarded my VO interview as a pretty successful one. Any experience when it takes a loooong time for the recruiter to get back to you after final round of interview? Thanks!

Applying to roles within the same federal agency. I know you need one year within the probationary period, but can I apply to a higher GS level? For example, if I'm GS 9, receive a promotion to GS 11 at the end of probation, would i be able to apply to GS 13 roles if I'm qualified? Tried researching this for hours but only found info on applying to other agencies.

My Quickbooks was showing the wrong figures and after being fixed recently I've learned that in my almost first year I've made less than 5k in profit!

People keep telling me that most businesses don't even turn a profit the first year, but I don't think that's really applicable in our field. Anyone else struggle the first year?
