Feeling rushed into setting up next interview rounds from McKinsey interviewer. Don’t have the bandwidth with current work to do adequate case practice between rounds. Will it reflect poorly on me if I push for interviews to be a week or so apart especially Round 2 and final? McKinsey & Company

Is it normal to attend all of Google interviews and feel like you aced it? Just seeing if it is really me who did well or how they make me feel. Preparing for the worse is important. 😊
Ok be honest, candidates. I really love this set of questions, I’ve been considering shifting my current interview style to these questions - I think they really give you an idea of who this person would be within the work setting. But the questions almost feel too deep for a recruiter to ask. What would you think if a recruiter took a different path and asked these questions instead of the usual ones? https://blog.shrm.org/blog/9-interesting-interview-questions-that-actually-reveal-a-lot-about-candidat
Anyone have a Goldman Sachs Marcus high yield savings account referral? I opened one but afterwards realized there are referral bonuses I left on the table. If anyone has a referral, I may be able to finesse applying it retroactively (benefitting both of us). Conversely, if anyone is thinking of opening one, I’m happy to refer you. Feel free to DM! Just wanted to keep the inside baseball for US.

Do you take your zoom job interviews in your office? Hard to schedule video interviews when you’re going into work.
I wore a sleeveless blouse like this one below for a zoom interview. Is that okay/biz casual? The v neck part keep parting apart so I had to pull it together multiple times during the interview.
There's a major QSR i recently got an offer for, and someone who interviewed me said I can ask him any questions I had. I noticed he came from consulting and so I'm curious to ask him which industry is better and what the similarities are between this role and consulting. Should I ask him that or is this HR bait?

Any diplomatic tips to get interns/juniors to work faster? Without having ever experienced the hectic nature of being in the office, ours seem to be working at a snail’s pace (3 billable hours to copy 4 blogs over to a different platform? With no SEO or image research? Dream on... 🐌) and considering it to be working under pressure. I’m not expecting the world from them and understand it’s a learning experience... but also want them to be working faster to be able to take more on. Unreasonable?
I’m a junior attorney at a boutique transactional firm. It’s a pretty small office and I only started in April. I’m having drinks with my mentor — a female partner — this week and I want to have a frank conversation about compensation. I know I’d benefit a lot from knowing her salary, how much she works, how much business development she does, what she brings in from profit sharing, etc. I always share this info when asked but still… Any suggestions on how to tactfully ask about this?

Go an offer from an early stage start-up for 7 thousand shares out of 2 mil (0.35% stake). How valuable is this in my offer? They want to keep my salary low in the short term until they get through Q4 and then come back to the negotiating table. Want to see if it is worth negotiating for more equity in exchange for less salary. They plan on doing Series A funding in Q3 and are considering increasing the number of shares. They project 1.8 milion in revenue 1 year after product launch (Nov 2022).
I’m current an S1 in corporate tax for a Top 10. I had an interview with a Big 4 for a tax technology position, but didn’t get in. I’m heartbroken because it was my dream job. 😅Everyone I spoke to seemed to like my experience and the recruiter said the team liked me as well, but they didn’t offer any feedback. Any advice on software or certifications I should get to help me get into tax technology and tax transformation? I’d really appreciate it - thank you for hearing me out!

I have 8 yoe as a BA. It's been 2 months since I joined a Big4 as a Scrum master. I was asked to shadow the project manager but the person is just not helpful.

Am I in trouble?

Has anyanyone else noticed a kind of salary stagnation in tech recently? I am getting pushback on my desired salary - almost everywhere. It seems logical given my current salary and experience level and what I would want in order to leave (at least 20% increase). I think there's a trend of offering lower salaries and expecting more at the higher levels of experience. Is this anyone else's experience?
PHR or SHRM-CP?
My work is highly focused on inclusion and today, while driving through the park, I felt bad for laughing at a group of larpers. They have nerf combat gear, too. I tried hard not to be insensitive to them being their true selves but i laughed … hard! And now I feel bad for laughing at them.
