I was offered a job at a big 4 firm l as an A2. Office is local. I’m currently an A2 at a mid-tier firm. It’s great & the culture is great. However, I was hired to be fully remote. It’s been only 4 months but I regret it now because I can’t do culture activities and really miss people and the office environment. My dilemma is I like my current job & firm but fully remote is very hard, has its cons. At the same time, I never imagined I’d get hired by a big 4 firm, plus resume building. Thoughts?Deloitte

Ok be honest, candidates. I really love this set of questions, I’ve been considering shifting my current interview style to these questions - I think they really give you an idea of who this person would be within the work setting. But the questions almost feel too deep for a recruiter to ask. What would you think if a recruiter took a different path and asked these questions instead of the usual ones? https://blog.shrm.org/blog/9-interesting-interview-questions-that-actually-reveal-a-lot-about-candidat
