Hjelp 😭 I have an interview on Monday for a research and advisory firm, and before the interview they want me to pick out a tech article to discuss. What exactly are they looking for here? What kind of article should I chose?

Don't take my word for it, but given it's a research and advisory firm I imagine it's important for them to be on top of what is new, trendy, making and impact in the industry. So anything that has information that could help another tech company find the latest solutions. Cloud and cyber security are hot topics.

Agreed. And make sure you have your own opinion and analysis take on macro and micro themes. They’ll be evaluating your critical thinking skills. I’ve interviewed many folks where that aspect of process was difficult for them.

Or take a look at the non-trendy. Spotting signs of downturns or potential problems are important too.

If you have any expertise that your resume did not highlight… pick an article about that subject.

And practice, practice, practice your messaging about the article. What do you want them to understand ?

You are picking one article, but what is the context.. the problem space… the market they this article is talking about ? How much revenue is estimated for the market ? Who are the market leaders or is this a green field ?

During the pandemic I lost my job and was desperate. I found a 5 month tax law internship to full hire and applied.
Description: “$20/hr to JDs, $15/hr to JD students”.
This was our convo.
Me: …I graduated from law school a few months ago…
Interviewer: so I’ll be paying you $15/hr if you’re hired… I’ll let you know in a week
Me (in no position to negotiate): umm… okay
*3 months later*
Interviewer: You’re hired! However it will now be an unpaid internship, are you still interested?
Me: *ghosts*

Just got a really attractive offer from PwC yesterday from comp perspective. Looking at about a 45k increase for the same job, but my biggest reservation is the Partner I interviewed with said it is “very difficult to establish an internal brand here”. Does that mean I’ll stagnate for a couple years? Is it a social club? If anyone is at PwC if could add color to what he meant that would be super helpful because it’s hard to not take this offer at this comp level.
