Happened to me before - Had a meeting with the hiring manager, and the VP. Had three interviews - on the last interview, discussed benefits and salary and said everything should work out and the next step is an offer letter. Got a call the next day saying it wouldn't work out for them and they rescinded everything. That just means that company isn't for you - you'll fine something better.

It could be nothing to do with you, this happened to me a few months ago about 2 weeks after the interview the company was bought out in a merger. It could be a lot of things, I would just take it that you did well and move on to your next opp.

Weird but not unheard of.

Thank you!!

Think you dodged a bullet here

I think so! Ended up getting similar offer (may end up being better) I accepted a couple weeks later and I start on the 10th. Think it all worked out!

I feel if this is how they treated you .. you don’t want to be part of such an organization

Hey guys. I have a technical interview with AlixPartners restructuring and turnaround team. This is for their summer intern position. I didn’t come from a restructuring background. Does anyone have an idea of what might get asked in the interview? Is it going to be very restructuring specific or some general accounting/ finance/ operational sides of topics.

I am an expert path associate at McKinsey with 1.5 YOE + 6 YOE prior to McK. Expected 2022 TC = 200k base + 50-70k bonus. How should I position myself for (Sr) Director level jobs given my current tenure? I want to test the job market right now, but it seems like recruiters are reaching out for Sr Manager jobs with significantly less TC than what I’m making. Any tips on specific themes or types of experiences I should highlight for those positions would be greatly appreciated!
