What’s general turnaround time from final candidate interview to decision / offer? Friend I referred for a SD role has gone through the process (2 Partner interviews, 1 SD interview) with the last interview occurring about two weeks ago. She hasn’t heard anything from HR and HR hasn’t responded to her emails asking on status. Not sure if that’s par for the course or an indication she got dinged.

I am new to MBB style case interviews and trying to prep for an interview with Bain soon (possibly with McK as well) . There are tons of books, articles, YouTube videos, etc. and I don't know where to start or which one is useful 🤯 can someone share their experience on how to plan interview prep for mbb?
Hi everyone, hope you are doing well. I applied to BCG and received an email from them telling me I was on the waitlist for interviews. What is the chances of getting an interview if I am on the waitlist? I am not well connected with BCGers, any recommendations on who to contact? Do any one of you think they can help me or connect me to someone willing to help from the inside? I applied to Atlanta, Boston, and Miami. I am on a F1 visa which makes things harder, MBB being kind of my only options.
Company I am interviewing with is small, so it doesn't have a 401(k). Any suggestions on how to invest well in other ways if I want to do more than the $6,000/year an IRA would allow?
I interviewed for a position remotely 3 weeks ago with the 3 partners of an agency at the same time, and it went well. The CFO then took 30 minutes after the initial hour to talk more and she asked that I reach out to her for more questions as well as to let her know when I have relocated as I told them that I am about to move. After 3 weeks, I sent a follow-up note to the HR contact and no response all last week. Shall I try contacting the CFO directly since she did ask that I do? Thoughts?

How do you all handle taking recruiter calls and interviews during the day when you work at an office with very few conference rooms? I wish more people would take calls before 9AM but alas...
Is general consensus that Revolut’s interview process not worth the massive effort given WLB, culture etc?
I know it’s subjective. But how many interview attempts on an average fishes here took to crack offers with MBB? Does re-applying have any advantages?
I hate the fact that when recruiters reach out they don’t say what the salary range is, virtual or in-person, weekly hour expectations, how big the accounting department is, or literally anything you would want to know before deciding whether an interview is worth your time.
Upcoming strategy case interview with EY Parthenon. Anyone know if these are interviewer or interviewee led? Knowing what to practice will help.
Is there anyone here from McKinsey or BCG in Montreal willing to chat? Im thinking about applying soon, but I feel like speaking with someone who works there will help me assess if I would love working there (culture, types of projects, etc), and that my interest isnt solely based on prestige/reputation!
Anyone know how soon I can reapply after getting this email. Also would love for someone to shed some light on why I did not get passed the resume stage when I have been able to land interviews at other consulting firms ( High T2).
For those in smaller high growth tech companies, where do you turn for resources on org development, engagement, trends, etc.? I’m moving from a large tech org to a a 150 person company. SHRM does not seem relevant at all. Podcasts, social media followings, etc?

Hi fellow immigrants. My partner and I are in the process of getting a visa, and we need an agent and as many contacts as possible for intent letters. Anyone that can offer some help?

How far is far enough to try and negotiate relocation costs? I live in Oakland but got an offer in San Jose - around 90 min commute. Just bought a house here though and would want to move closer. Would I get laughed out of the room to try and negotiate relocation?
I need help asking for help - more specifically identifying what exactly others can help with. There are extenuating circumstances in most cases but I’ve had coworkers out in bereavement, project scopes increasing, and my own capacities are shrinking with burnout - I can’t focus, misreading/misinterpreting, I’m spacing on finding documents/notes, and overall inefficient between calls with the volumes of emails. Friends & manager tell me I’m being too hard on myself, but work is only piling on
Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!
