I'm in talks with PwC India for potential offer for Advisory Tech Consulting in banking domain & I'm holding another offer from a Fortune 100 Insurance, Banking & Finances company, but doesn't have the 'Brand Value' in India. PwC India is offering the location Kolkata & other offer is from Pune(my preferred location). Keeping in mind the recent political events(I interviewed at PwC before election results) looking for suggestions from you 🐟es, which one would y'all go for? Brand or Location?
I just moved to a foreign country and I am really in need of a job. I applied to a big 4 and spent weeks making it through interviews only to get turned down, because they wanted someone with big 4 experience. How can I get big 4 experience if a big 4 isn’t willing to hire me? I feel defeated.

Would you ever let your firm/company know that you are looking to leave before you give your two weeks notice? Here’s my conundrum, I have a great relationship with my boss, company, and upper management. I’m planning to switch jobs so I can relocate closer to family. I have some interviews coming up, and already have an offer in hand, so leaving is a foregone conclusion. My boss is going to be blindsided when I tell them I’m leaving - I can’t overstate how great our relationship is. Thoughts?
I had six hours worth of Zoom interviews with an AmLaw100 firm on Monday and Tuesday last week. I haven’t heard back on anything yet - when is “too” long to have not heard back and when should I reach out to their in-house recruiter for some kind of update?
What do you do when your SO is so naive that she tells her employer during a promotion interview that her long term plan is a career in academia.
Ok be honest, candidates. I really love this set of questions, I’ve been considering shifting my current interview style to these questions - I think they really give you an idea of who this person would be within the work setting. But the questions almost feel too deep for a recruiter to ask. What would you think if a recruiter took a different path and asked these questions instead of the usual ones? https://blog.shrm.org/blog/9-interesting-interview-questions-that-actually-reveal-a-lot-about-candidat

I joined D's Workday practice as a C and been here ~8 months. I'm getting an offer from a lesser known practice with a 66% increase and a promo to SC. I currently love my job and team. The only motivation to jump is the money. If i stayed at D i'd prob get promoted next year and yet it wont match the salary i'm getting offered today. The money would allow me to reach my goals a lot faster, but is right to move just for the money? I know the work at the other firm will be less interesting.

Have a male friend who had been extremely helpful when my parents were sick (neuro related). He’s a recent neurosurgeon, we’re friends since primary school but we havent spoken for a decade since we lived in different coast. In the last 6 months we speak a lot due to his expertise in this health field and generosity to follow up regarding my parents health. What can I send him to thank for his help all this time? Any nice gestures. Fyi platonic only, he’s married
Question: Does it give me any edge applying at Google if one of their global recruiters sent me a referral link to apply instead of just applying online? Seems legit.
