I am in a dilemma. I've got a decent offer but I want to get better offers from big MNC. I am working as a third party recruitment in their client based company, but they have not made me their permanent employee it is now 10months in the company. I was thinking of telling them that I have got a good offer and negotiate for permanency and better offer here only so that I will have some to prepare and get better MNC offers as then I would have 2 months NP compared to 15 days now.
I received this message from a recruiter working on behalf of another organization. Does anyone have an inkling as of what organization this may be?

Anyone got experience with McKinsey Digital? Couple questions below:
- Where do most applicants come from for associate roles? (5YoE requested) what's the average background - still oxbridge and top MBA?
- Associate renumeration structure?
- is it more people/strategy focused like Accenture or more tech development
- Where does the majority of their client base sit?
- is travel frequent?
What are other MBB tech alternatives to B4?
Working with this client and sadly I'm 30 sign ups short and the due date is tomorrow. Thought I'd reach out and perhaps get a few of you guys to assist. It's a bank, though the campaign was a success the client obsesses over figures, they won't like that report when I send it over.
So, if you can do with an extra mobile bank account ,please get one here. You could also get it an not use it, up to you. Very easy sign up here 👉 :https://bit.ly/BankThatPays

I used to think other women were dramatizing discrimination against women in tech. I went to uni for IT & worked as a tech all through undergrad & always felt respected by the male colleagues
When I got my first corporate job, I realized how much people will respect you LESS just because you’re a woman. You could have the right solution but you’ll be considered last due to their bias (sometimes subconscious bias too).
It feels horrible. Has anyone been able to cope with this in a healthy way?

Would this actually work?
Should I specialize in Blockchain or AI? I’m a freshman in a CS degree and I can’t decide. My main argument to choose blockchain is the easy entry with little experience and high salary, I plan on growing my skills during the bear market and get a job once the market recovers. Regarding AI, I find this field fascinating but I feel like it requires a lot of experience, degrees and diplomas.

I’m currently working with a senior level HR candidate. This individual has a doctorate in business with a focus in HR, her SPHR, Federal, and private sector experience at the singer level, and has a fabulous personality. I’m curious is anyone else having difficulties play some candidates like this? At this point I’m starting to think it’s racial or her sex based of the lack of interest in this candidate. Any thoughts?
I was hoping to get some advice. I have a degree in biology with a minor in chem. and a con. in marine biology.

I have recently been asked to interview for a local high school. My questions are, if you were the interviewer, what would you be looking for, and what questions should I expect/should I ask.

Anyone made the switch from a traditional path to being a professional career coach? While I do enjoy the tax compliance part of my work, I think my real strength and passion is in the people: mentoring, motivating, helping people to think about and set a plan to achieve their goals. Does career coaching seem like a good fit? Any advice on where to start?
Would moving from a firm to an employee relations position mean that I never secure an in-house employment law position? Or would such a move better position me to go in-house one day? I am having difficulty transitioning from a labor & employment firm to an in-house role, and so I am exploring alternatives while keeping in mind my future career trajectory.

Are there anyone working at MBB's Turkey offices? I do wonder what are the criteria for intern recruitment, since I haven't received any reply from McKinsey and BCG. I don't want to be seen arrogant, but I believe I have a nice CV and studying at a targeted university, besides interning at a Tier 2 firm right now. I really wonder why they didn't like me and never replied any application so that I could improve myself and apply again. But I'm really not sure that if they even see my resume. Thnx.

They will usually try to satisfy your ask but it depends mostly on the projects available at the time you are on the beach.
To ensure you have a positive experience and get to work in the industries you’d like, probably you should use your Career Development Committee meeting (twice a year) to ask to be staffed in x,y or z industry.
Most likely than not, they will listen.
