I would, maybe something simple. Just thank them for their time and express that you're looking forward to hearing back about next steps.

Hi fishes, has anyone attended Accenture Test Automation interview? Do they ask to write code or tell code lines???

a word of encouragement: if you feel like you're being underpaid, you probably are. I realized I was and started applying for new jobs immediately - just landed a job that not only am I excited about, but I'll be making 58% more, base alone, than at my current company. and it's a lateral move!

this big of a jump may be an anomaly - I think it mostly highlights just how much I was being underpaid. but if you think you're underpaid, find a company that actually values you!


Hello Everybody,

I just got mail that I have cleared technical and managerial round for big data developer position for Cognizant.

I have 6 yrs of exp in IT. Current CTC is 13.4 lpa

Now next round is HR round.

How much package should I ask for.

And also i have 90 days notice period, will they agree.

Please guide how to handle this HR Round.
will be a lot of help 🙏

What would you do?

(Or really this is just me typing out loud. )

Currently 6 years at job A at 100K and 10K annual bonus but lil to no upward mobility. It's safe if not going anywhere.

Recruiter reached out regarding Job B at 130K with greater advancement potential but it starts out at 6 Months Contract to Hire per the agency contract. No bonus, benefits adequate by comparison. There is no guarantee to go full time.

Interview just for practice?


Just said smb port was 443 in an interview.. Ohh my god..! Kill me already.. Smh


For those who work/interviewed with Facebook (Meta) did you have another interview after your virtual on-site loop?

Recruiter initially said next step after loop was an offer if selected, now she’s telling me they loved me but want to deep dive into my response to the case study, so one more case interview.

Is this strange?

What are some good questions or indications to get a sense of if it’s a going to be a good opportunity or a total mess?

I am done with the multiple rounds of technical interviews in PWC AC and HR confirmed that the feedback is positive and they are working on next process.
Its been one week I haven't received any communication on that. When I called HR, she told that background check team will reach out to me over email or call in some days.

Can anyone suggest if I should hope for the offer letter in this case from PWC AC or not.
Also, what salary I should negotiate for Senior Associate.

Hi Guys,

I am working in the Oil & Gas industry.
YoE: 10
CCTC: 10.86

I got a call from Accenture, Deloitte, TechM and VISICS, Netherland.

Last conversation with HR is mentioned here.

Accenture-more than 30 days
Deloitte-more than 30 days
TechM-last week
VISICS-last week

Accenture and Deloitte HR is not responding. Frequent interviews are scheduled and cancelled stating official reasons.

Expert comments please.
Anybody having similar experience??
Or is it happening due to FY ending??


Despite having felt it was a great interview, being ghosted by the a couple of the big 4 after final stage. Felt connected with the interviewers and positively answered their questions and felt culturally fit for their org. What would have potentially gone wrong? Not heard from one for 1 month (probably move on now) and another 2 weeks…


Hello guys!

Any idea if HR will be able to help with offer letter? My profile is stuck at evaluation in progress from quite some time. All the interviews and negotiations are already done.


Do we get a response after an interview, even if we're not selected? As I am waiting for a response from OpenText . My interview was last week Thursday, and I have even sent a follow-up email on Monday. Still no response. Shall I consider that I am not selected and that I will not be informed as well?

Anyone else feel like they’re not right for the corporate world? It’s not my personality to let my manager know of everything I’m working on - I’m heads down and I get the job done and only bring him in if I need help. However, I’m now learning that this is hurting me because my more vocal colleagues are being recognized for tasks I already do. I just hate these corporate games. Why isn’t it enough to just do the work well?


I made a mistake starting SIP in a ULIP. Used to invest 7500 per month starting from November 2018. I have discontinued my premium payments since last year. That is when my fund was moved to an interim surrender state and now it earns 4% per annum interest.

After 5 years of lock-in that is November 2023, can i withdraw the entire amount at a time? (Of course after paying surrender charges)

Additional Posts in Interview Tips


Has anyone ever worked for Vibrent Health? I have an interview there next week and the reviews look atrocious lol. Check out the Glassdoor reviews if you have nothing better to do — skip the 5 star reviews and go straight to the negatives. I’m genuinely curious as to what’s going on over there.


I applied for a job based on the job description and now have an interview with the Recruiter in the next couple of days. In preparation for the interview I did some research and have serious concerns about the company. E.g., most of the most recent Glassdoor reviews describe the company as a "sinking ship" with poor benefits and poor leadership.

How would you approach this situation? Would you mention the bad reviews to the recruiter? Cancel? Continue and see what happens?

Anyone have experience with a required on-site final interview for a fully remote job? I'll have already had an interview with the hiring manager and a teammate and a presentation of a case study. So with some of the team being fully remote and the role I'm interviewing for being fully remote I'm not sure what I should prepare for the on-site. I really want the role and want to respect their process but it's hard to justify visiting (across the country) and getting time off my current role.


Had an interview Thursday, went really well. Was told I'd be a great fit, they even had me turn around return, and meet with the decision maker the same day. When I was leaving they said they were sending an email with "quizzes" required by corporate.

I sent my thank you message the next day, and the reply said "keep an eye out for the quizzes, so we may move on to the next stage."

It's Tuesday and still nothing. What should I do? Another follow-up email? A call? Or just wait it out?


I’m interviewing for a non-technical, mid-senior level role at Stripe. I know culture is really important to them. To that point, I have a half-dozen or so friends that work there, and I’m wondering how it would be perceived if I asked them to formally or informally advocate to the hiring team on my behalf? I know efforts like this can rub people the wrong way, so I just wanna be careful before deploying them. Anyone who works there or knows them able to comment on this?

Hello there! I have applied to so many jobs at Tesla (like 10 no kidding), and I don’t even get to the phone screaning part… I have a Master and a lot of certificates, any company would be lucky to have me, is there a secret I don’t know to get an interview at Tesla? 😁


I got an informal offer stating the salary range before they officially extend a written offer. I accepted over email and the recruiter said this:

Are you comfortable accepting at the (lowest part of the range) and everything else listed? Or would it need to be on the higher end of the range I suggested?

What the heck do I say while being polite??? Of course I would rather it be higher than the lowest part of the range!!


I'm venturing out and starting to interview for different companies. Is it okay to lookup the interviewees on LinkedIn beforehand?

When accepting a verbal offer should I email my decision to the recruiter or call?

I’ve accepted a job to fill a maternity leave for a few months, but then 3 other companies have reached out for permanent roles. If any of those end up offering me the job, how much notice should I give? Will I burn the bridge there? In the new job I will have no benefits and health insurance is a deal breaker for me, but I don’t feel like retracting now.
