Depends on when day 1 is (I.e. are you planning to do it over the weekend?) but no matter what the answer is always 48 hrs at the most

I received the prompt on Sunday. Does it look bad if I schedule the interviews on Thursday and Fridays? There’s no submission i believe

I had a really weird interview for Creative Director today. It’s a small startup. HR interviewed me and asked all the hard hitting questions (how do you get design inspiration, how do you deal with design roadblocks, what sets you apart for this role?) which I thought was odd for a screening interview. They made some affirmative noises then said the next step would be a design test (one pager) which I would present to a panel of interviewers including the CMO. Anyone else think this is odd?

I plan on applying to accounting PhD programs later this year and every program requires letters of recommendation.

If I ask for a letter they’ll know I have intentions of leaving but I plan on staying with the firm until I start the program which will be fall of 2021, almost a year after I ask for a letter. Does anyone have any advice on how to go about it?

Was my screening interview last week appropriate? The HR reached out on Sunday to schedule screening interview, I replied on Monday of my availabilities (from Thu to the next Tue) and she didn’t reply until I followed up on Thursday. Then she sent an invite for the same day afternoon. I said the availability was outdated and i would be free on Friday. Then we had the interview on Friday. During the screening, she asked why I changed employers so quickly didn’t ask me to ask questions.

Hi everyone! I am relatively new to consulting space. I worked with Deloitte in a research role, but have joined an MBB firm at a more front end role.

I wish to know does people care about your looks in consulting (specially when you are on a client facing role?) I am an Indian male, and I have acne (not a lot, but considerable). Cont. in comments
