Hi there, Is stating that you had a career change and you feel sometimes that you are behind in knowing more about accounting a good weakness in an interview?
Can I company rescind an offer? I negotiated too hard on the level and salary. Today was my offer acceptance deadline and the recruiter reached out to me saying that they understand me not bei mg happy with this offer as they didn’t meet my level and salary requirements and would love to stay in touch for future opportunities. I replied back saying I accept (since I really like the role, the team and the company and am fine with the slight pay cut) but haven’t heard back. It’s been 9ish hours

Need some advice! I’ve been out of the interview game for a long time but I have one coming up with a partner at PwC for an advisory role- is it going to be technical (expected to complete a case) or more conversational? I’m just nervous bc it’s 45 minutes long. Also any other tips would help, like how to dress, etc. Thanks in advance!

During the interview/hiring process, when is the best timing to bring up the title negotiation? Based on the senior level job description, I'm confident and capable for all the requirements (con..)
Made up my mind. Resigning from my current position. I have 1 interview set - I know I am a strong candidate. I worry that I am so checked out, I need to resign now rather than deliver shitty work.
Do you take all recruiter calls or only ones you’re truly interested in? If you take them all, when do you end the conversation if you’re not interested? After the first recruiter call? After interviewing? Waiting til you get an offer for kicks?
I sometimes wonder why starting things is so difficult for me. I keep postponing them to the last moment and then rush through it. I need to prep for few interviews and need to seriously up my game. But I have a starting problem! But once I do start, there’s no stopping me. I can keep going for days like that- studying and hyper focused. Why am I so lazy? 😭😭
Openings for ETL - (SAP BODS/ SSIS/ Talend/ Flexter/ Informatica/ Python) Message me for applying/questions!
I’m a senior with over 8 YoE, I have been doing SQL, python and tableau. Was managing engagements sometimes as a junior product manager and sometimes as a team lead. I want to move out of consulting but the whole interview process intimidates me and I feel I don’t know anything or have no skills. I’m feeling listless and depressed with my current job. Anyone who moved out as a product manager or a data scientist/engineer/analyst? Looking for someone who can guide me! Thank you!

Im in the final round of interviews at VMware and news came on Monday that they are being acquired by Broadcom. Is this something that I should be concerned about? I know layoffs can happen after a merger/acquisition but there’s not much overlap between the two companies (chipmaker vs cloud infrastructure). My job will be a Sr Business Analyst role in internal strategy/improvement Any advice from folks experienced in M&A?

Arguing with the bf about "work husbands." I personally have a lot of colleagues who have one, whether it be a work wife or husband. Let’s set the record straight, upvote if you have one!
What's the most expensive bottle of alcohol do you drink on a regular basis with your own money? Please mention level. Don't want partner 1 telling me how he buys a bottle of pappy every other week.

I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.
Everybody I know wants to get out of this project. It's only this project or you guys too???
Embarrassing thing you’ve done at work and got away with? One time WFH, I fell asleep and woke up 20 minutes into a 30 minute call. Didn’t join because I felt it was too late. No one ever mentioned it
