Thoughts on being asked to do a test project post interview? Sr AD with a portfolio to back it up. Responded saying I could do it at my freelance rate, they replied back saying since it's not a "real project" they wouldn't pay for it.
ACN interviewer made a mistake and did case study interview for manager level role instead of consultant role. I have great feedback from 1st Interview and not so much from case interview because of this. I had a catch up with the recruiter this morning and he said they've now closed recruitment and have said they will get in touch with me towards end of January for Q2 recruitment and that I may need to do case interview again. Good prospects or bad?

Guys, after following up for feedback on my final interview, the recruiter sent me the below email: "Thank you for reaching out! I have received the feedback and will give you a call in the morning." What could the call be about, an offer or not? Please help 😴

Any staff attorneys/hourly attorneys willing to share their experiences? I’m partnership track in BigLaw but am so interviewing for a staff/hourly position at a different BigLaw firm for the work/life balance. I just am hoping I’m not trading one hell for another!
I've been applying for new jobs for the past few weeks. My supervisor just let me know I qualified for and will be getting a promotion as of January 2022. If I get a new job with a different company can I take it? Is there a minimum time to stay after a promotion?
Interviewing for a role at Deloitte strategy and wondering if anyone has recently completed one. Haven’t done case based interviews since undergrad, what level of detail are they diving into for quant based cases? How much mental math required?
What salary range should I be asking for? I am looking to transition from Audit to Forensic Accounting and have both my CPA and CFE. I also have 2 years of public accounting experience. I currently have 5 interviews all in Forensic positions.
Recently received an offer (out of the blue) midway through an interview process, and was a bit in shock - was told there would be a technical and additional steps. (External) recruiter was very aggressive and tried pushing me into a decision on the spot. Told them I needed to think about it and see the formal offer. Got a call from the hiring manager saying they were concerned about my “lack of enthusiasm” and that I shouldn’t share too much info with recruiters. How do I proceed?
What are the typical questions during the Solutions Architect interview at Tableau Software ? Or what questions should I prepare for?
Curious how people use LinkedIn - if you interview and it goes well but you don’t get an offer, do you add your interviewers on LinkedIn? Has a great conversation and it was a strong cultural fit, but both sides realized it wasn’t a good functional fit.

I am doing UXR interviews, and although I read that a background in design isn’t necessary for UXR, I have been asked a few times now whether I have experience in design and can use design apps. I have applied research experience and a solid understanding of product development, which I think should land me a UXR role one day, but I’d to hear any thoughts though if you think design knowledge is necessary for UXR?
Had a successful screen call for Deloitte strategy consulting, and the recruiter promised to schedule follow up interviews within 2-3 days. I followed up after waiting for a week and was promised a response from another recruiter. It’s been another 3 business days. I hope your consulting teams are not as bad as your recruiters..😑
MD folks. Finished all of my interviews and recruiter setup a follow up video call for next week to discuss next steps. What should I expect? How can I prepare?
How many of you growing up actually understood your future income potential? I still never really expect to break $250k, but like if someone told me that that a job I would eventually get with a starting salary of 75k could take me to an achievable 300-600k+, I’d laugh. I’m pretty sure it’s because income levels for my parents were always pretty stagnant, but very middle class.
So unmotivated by partners complete lack of communication and transparency during COVID... Radio silence re: firm health, bonus prospects, unresponsive to emails, team zoom mtgs scarce + a joke, etc.

There’s so much of a race to marry and settle down for male and female desis, so for those of you who got divorced with or without a child what is your life about now? This culture is so unforgiving so much of the time, that without both these things in place they’re not about inclusion much either. Do you still feel a sense of urgency to race to remarry?

Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
