Never get chummy and be so open with your interviewer. As an interviewee your job is to sell yourself on the role you are interviewing from. You spin your experience to fit the job description.

They wanted me to apply in another year. Now I want to lay my cards on the table and show him truly what I could have done. I realize I will never work there but want his advice

What's your goal? Get in anyway or get advice? 1 - would say chance is gone, 2 - maybe ask someone else?

Obviously I’ll be able to network within those two years and probably find something more permanent, so it’s very similar to gig work at BAH. I also just started a new project at BAH last month so I feel uneasy leaving after a month. Can someone at Deloitte give me more insight about PDM work at the company?
