Contacts. Neediness is good, hotness is more important. (And I think glasses are hot.)

M or F?

I wear glasses during interviews and client first meetings bc I'm a tall blonde and look young. Glasses make me appear older and nerdy.

I see ya P3 😉

Depends on your power. Maybe contacts with a cool 0 power frame to get the best of both worlds

Contacts. You need that clear eye contact... no distortions.

Whatever you are most comfortable in!

I am applying for a mortgage and this process makes me never want to buy a house. The lender asked me for an explanation on Etsy and eBay transactions that were deposited into my checking account, a 2021 P&L statement for both businesses and documentation of when the business was formed. I made $0.31 on Etsy in my entire lifetime and my eBay transactions only involve me selling my old iPhone for $83. Is this common?

Had an interview at a firm where they have an unlimited vacation policy that’s just “speak with your deal teams in advance to get time off”.

Hey all, I know MBB sponsor international candidates but at what stage they look at your visa situation. Do they take into consideration initially before sending you any online assessment test and while reviewing your CV or they look for it after you go through interviews. I had a chat with previous McKinsey consultant and he was like you automatically get cut off from the system if you select 'require visa sponsorship'. Not sure if it is true or not?

How many rounds of interviews do firms usually do for laterals? I have a first round coming up with a co-chair, partner and associate in the group I’ve applied to, but it’s unclear whether that’s just a screener/I’d have to do callbacks. If relevant, I’m being poached by a partner that just joined from my current firm so my understanding was that I’d be fast-tracked.

Recently had my technical coding interview - overall didn’t feel amazing about it, my interviewer kept misunderstanding and mis-answering my exploratory questions about the problem. Not sure when I will hear back, but I doubt it will be a positive. I know I’d be able to slam any of the later rounds out of the park (previous experience and achievements, questions around advanced ML theory, etc), is there an ability to progress through the rounds even if the coding section wasn’t up to par?

A question for recruiters. When you call someone asking them if they are interested in an opportunity and then ask them for a technical interview the next day and they ask for an extension does it impact their application? Recently it has happened to me twice that recruiter calls, he has my details and asks if I’m interested and then ask for same day or next day interview. And when I apologize since I actually have job to take care as well they just ghost me. Is this something that’s normal?

Hi! I would appreciate any feedback. I just finished my final round of the interviewing process for another OCM role. I’m sure that they will offer me soon. During conversations with the recruiter, I was told that the salary would be around $75k (I make $75k now) with a bonus. Upon further discussion through my interviews with the team, I am learning that this is a brand new role and change management itself is a brand new lane for this organization. I have 5 years of experience, (CONT)
