I’m sorry that you feel the need to even ask this question. Guessing you’re new so welcome to consulting, but this is the kinda shit no one gives an f about. Do whatever is comfortable, it’s not like you’re coming down in an EY track suit. Also don’t be scared to eat alone at restaurants lol, couldn’t believe when i saw someone say they never go to restaurants alone while traveling.

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 :)
