McKinsey & Company Have a case interview for an associate role in the Ops practice at McKinsey. Will cases still be generic or Ops focused? If so, any specific case industry / types I should gain more business sense on? Comfortable around general application of conceptual frameworks, but don’t have too much pure Ops work experience.

Hi IBM sharks 🦈
So I got interviewed for a project by the IBM team. The interviewer told me that its a go ahead from their end, now the client will assess my profile and if they too are fine with it, I will be onboarded?
Is it true that we have client interview as well? If yes then after how many days of interview by IBM team, client interview takes place?
Or its just that if the IBM team is fine with it, we are selected for the project?
Any inputs on this will really help :)
A quick check. How many of you got the project after joining in coforge? If you got the project is it same client which was promised while interview process? Please respond.
*recent graduate* Whenever I ask an employer why I didn’t get the job or get to the second step in the interview process, they never respond. So, I’m assuming my lack of experience (I never did an internship in school🤦♀️ ) or portfolio is the problem.
Are there any recruiters here that wouldn’t mind taking a look at my resume please?? Trying to go back into the workforce and keep getting turned down for jobs I know I qualify for. Been applying to Customer Success Manager, Director of Customer Success, Customer Relationship Manager positions.

I applied to Bloomberg sales and analytics and did the video recorded interview. It’s been past the 10 business days that they were supposed to get back to me. Should i still have hope at this point ? Does anyone know if Bloomberg sends rejections letters or leave you hanging ?
Sharing my interview experience with JP Morgan Chase India: I gave 3 rounds of interview for a VP position spending total of 3 hours including a coding test of 1 hour as part of 3rd round. The panel was from U.S. and they appeared very interested at every stage. However, as soon as I finished the 3rd round, they went silent. As per my self assessment, I performed well in the coding round. However, when I followed up I was told that they are considering an internal candidate for that position. JPMorgan Chase
I don’t really know what to do with myself. I have been looking for part time work because that’s all I can handle, but honestly nothing is really interesting me much anymore. I feel like I am aimlessly applying for jobs. I tried creating emails that were “fancy-ish” for invoice receipts I send out, and that was fun. That has to be a job — for making those types of emails. What is that role called and how do I get into it?
I am a consulting analyst who would like to become an investment banking analyst. I have seen a lot of positions requiring candidates with 1-3 years experiences in IB.

I just need 10 minutes of your time.

Hello ! I am starting my first job as a data scientist next month, and I want to give a good first impression to the team I will be working with. I have curly hair, so do you think I should straighten it out of fear of being labeled as careless person ?
PS : There were two interviews in total, one of which was via phone and an other with the HR where I straightened my hair. Thanks !
Anyone feel like all the FAANG companies are losing steam? People have indicated they would never work for Amazon or Meta, Netflix is kinda going down the drain rn, and Apple and Google are getting railed for their return to office policies. Always been a dream to work at FAANG, but now reconsidering 😅
Advice to directors, senior managers, MDs and partners applying to Google
1. Google is growing slowly. Gcp is growing really fast. Make sure you know where you are applying
2. Sales and sales related roles are growing the fastest.
3. You will not get a team to do your work for you - all the stuff you used to delegate. You will need to do that now.
4. The people that run teams are called managers. They do the following a) scoping work b) staffing c) people mgmt.

Curious the pay difference between SAP and partner consulting firms. What can a S4 HANA cloud or OnPrem consultant expect to get paid at a place like EY or another big 4 firm with 3-5 years of experience in PMO/Functional Consulting roles with an MBA?

In theory, Agile is like being in a "union light"?
There's collective bargaining by the engineering team about what tasks they take on (Grooming / Sprint Planning ~ Contracts).
There's regular feedback and round tables to see how to improve things (Retros ~ Union meetings).
Anyone else see this, or am I just being silly?
Completed my loop with meta and the recruiter wants to connect via phone. Do they call to reject? 😢
What if "The Metaverse" becomes a thing, but the versions of it that get used are built up piece by piece by many smaller operations and Meta ends up with very little in the way of market share?
