I was an experienced hire. I had 2 interviews with HR. Then 3 interviews with 2 managers and a director. My last interview was with a partner. So a total of 6 rounds

Screen, 1 behavioral, 1 situational, maybe something more informal after that or a partner screen but that should be it

All that just for an associate role? Dang. I was an experience associate hire for also a major project in advisory. I had one round with the recruiter, did an in person interview with 3 people, and then I got an offer. I feel like you should be done by now.

Are you still with major projects?

I was an experienced hire as well - pre-Covid, you would have your interviews in person in a two(ish) hour window. Things have definitely changed a bit with Covid and I guess it’s a bit more drawn out, but you’re probably talking to the same # of people. If you’re advanced after the panel, you may have a short call with a partner, or you might get an offer right away. I didn’t have a partner call, but others did.

Like many groups across the firm, fit is huge so they are probably trying to make sure you’re a good fit. Good luck OP.

“Fit is huge” aka it’s not about how qualified you are but how well they perceive you to fit into the old boys club. Keep in mind this is the same group that hazed it’s new joiners by making them all chug beer from the same cup…

Current M&A tax associate, just got off the phone with a recruiter for a senior M&A position at a private company.

I don’t think I want to stay in accounting/tax long term but it feels somewhat wrong to have spent all that time on the exams just to not get licensed. Thoughts?

Wonder if anyone can offer advice on which cert to pursue next? I obtained my CompTIA Security+ last year and wondering if I should go for the CySA+ or Pentest+ next. I also have my AWS CCP and will be sitting for the Solutions Architect soon as well. Currently not doing security stuff at work but would love to keep my skills going. I was hoping one of these next certs will help me finally break into a security role and love the idea of pentesting but not sure if the CySA+ is more beneficial.
