Shouldn’t be hard especially after two years with the firm. Make sure you talk to your counselor and find out what the process is.....Also, depends on the need in your area. But if you’ve proven yourself for two years I’m sure it’s not going be a problem

Deloitte keeps reaching out to me. It’s like the 4th or 5th time a recruiters reached out to me in 6 months and I’ve applied separately a couple of times. I’ve been rejected every time (either application gets rejected or after screening / interviews). Am I just part of a diversity quota for the recruiters? Genuine question. Below’s the company info for the third party recruiter for Deloitte. Not sure I even want to respond this time.
