I'm 7 months in and doing a really bad job at my current project because I hate consulting and the job itself makes me really miserable. I feel really helpless and don't know what to do because the worse I do the worse opportunities I'll get at this firm later on and then I won't be able to leave. I've been interviewing with some other companies but no offers so far, afraid I won't get any because I'm leaving so soon. Truly feel so helpless and lost, I really want out.
What’s more anxiety inducing. Waiting to hear if your passed your final interview for a job or waiting to hear if your offer on a home was accepted?
I recently left a pretty good summer internship to take a full time job and I regret it. I have been losing sleep over it all summer. And after remote work ends, the job would be in a high cost of living city as well. Due to this, I am looking at switching jobs again. I feel terrible about starting my career as a job hopper. Despite getting interviews at good companies, nothing is making me feel better about this situation. I don’t know how to handle the thoughts racing in my mind.
What’s the proper business courtesy after you accept an offer? Do you normally email the people who interviewed you about the news (if you get informed by the hr)?
Have a SQL interview coming up... They said it will be 3-4 questions that should take me 1-1.5 hours total, and to know "intermediate to advanced SQL, particularly joins and window functions". Any tips for preparing? I can do the hard questions on StrataScratch and am wondering if that's as hard as interview questions will get.
Any advice on a Bain full time first round interview? I go to a non-target school, and am an engineering major. I’ve tried applying to consulting internships since sophomore year and have never received any interviews from anywhere. I’ve been casing all summer with friends and am super nervous before the interview. Would appreciate anything that could help me stand out or anything to avoid that would get me rejected. I know Bain heavily focuses on the case and not as much the behavioral.

Am currently working in strategy consulting, wondering what it’s like to interview for Strat positions in industry/tech firms? Are there cases? Am beginning to prep for exiting.
Rejected by 2 exit ops after on-sites where 2 of 3 recruiters sent a personal message/email saying something like "you seem great/qualified but not the right fit". One said "the HM said you seem really bright and would hire asap if we were looking for a generalist". Another said "this isn't about weakness or lack of experience, just questions on fit". Do recruiters say this to a lot of people or is this genuine? Trying to gauge whether my interview performance is at least solid.
Currently interviewing at a startup and a new position opened up that I really like. Would it look bad to ask the recruiter if I can also be considered for the new role?
Had my final round interview 3 weeks ago and provided my HC packet to my recruiter last Tuesday. As of yesterday, the recruiter still has a few “admin tasks” they need to complete before I can even go to HC. Losing hope…..
Does anybody knows someone who works in the pharmaceutical/medical sales field? My husband is currently looking for an opportunity to break into the field but haven’t gotten any interview yet (he has been applying for almost 2 weeks now). We are located in Virginia and he has a BS in Biology + B2B sales experience at a F500 company. Appreciate the help sisters!!
A question for the associates: How should I talk to a new associate on my team (4 mos.) about critical issues including 1) spending too much time on a single project; 2) not meeting expectations in terms of number of billable hours; 3) botching easy procedural issues? This person has significant skills and writes very well. But their work is consistently turned in at the last minute, they have to be corrected on procedures regularly, and they never come talk to me without an invitation.

Live in Jersey City. Drivers license expiring next month. Need to get mine transferred from Mass to NJ before renewal.

Does Amex platinum reimburse for CLEAR?
Got an offer to move to another B4 strategy practice with a title & pay bump (15%). However, most of the work is in an industry I hated working in (financial services). Is it worth making the jump for a year if the ultimate goal is FAANG?
Has anyone here drafted their own prenup? Context: I am first year attorney and my partner is about to start law school part time. Other than debt and our 401ks, neither of us is bringing much to the table in terms of assets. We want a prenup to opt out of equitable distribution laws and how martial property is defined. We aren’t sure it is worth the expense of both hiring lawyers to draft what is likely to be a simple document. But we also want a prenup that will hold up in court.
When your project sucks but you can’t roll off
I’ve heard mixed things about Amazon creative departments. What makes it worth it? What kind of benefits do you guys receive?
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
