Hi Fishes! I have an informational interview (phone call) coming up with a recruiter from EY. I’m a tax associate up for senior and I’m very excited and nervous to even have a chance with EY. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions on how to prepare or what’s best to say?

Be ready to articulate what experience you have had in your current job / role with at least 1 example and explain “Why EY” specifically. Otherwise, make sure to come across as having a positive attitude and a good work ethic. At your level I’d imagine they are looking more for a personality / culture fit than anything else.

Best of luck please join us!

In the current environment you'd need to give them an affirmative reason not to hire you

It’s also saturated with competent mid level lawyers who seem to get all the good work before it trickles down. A position has opened at a competitor firm that I am considering applying for. Looking for peoples thoughts - is now the time to leave?
