I was unemployed 6 months. Now I’m turning down interviews because there’s so much interest. Clients and publishers are throwing wads of $$$ at me. If you’re struggling, keep going. There’s hope!
For those of you who are successful in your interview process and landed on an offer, did you feel like you ace every question they asked in in the interview and articulate perfectly? I’m a bit nervous now Bc I felt like I could have spoken better 😭😭😭😭

I interviewed for a job in a diff location and during interviews they asked me multiple times how I felt abt relocating. I said it was fine, but the more I think about it the less I’m open to relocating. I now have an offer from them, is there anyway to negotiate no relocation? They are remote until mid year 2021. I’m Happy to fly in on a monthly basis but I don’t want to move there.

Can you wear business casual to an interview
How do you stand out during interviews when the vast majority of candidates have a similar background? Starting to feel like the kid who didn't get picked for the team.
Job apps have terms at end which includes fact that they can reach out to all listed employers. Should I reach out and check that they will not talk to current supervisor, or rather forego applying?
Anyone know what Weil’s average hours are like given that they don’t have billable requirements? A lot of people say big law comparable but I know some people in big law shooting for 2000 and some shooting for 2600 and those are two very different worlds. Was considering applying to a role there but wanted to get a feel for what this really equates to.
I haven’t received any marketing emails from Tuck after I applied and interviewed. Anyone else experiencing this? Hoping this isn’t a bad sign
Is anyone still waiting for a Kellogg interview invite? They said 6 weeks and that’s this Thursday. Are they not interviewing every candidate like usual?
I’ve had countless interviews at a few agencies, all with 4-5 interviews taking months at a time to continue to receive the email “we went with another candidate but everyone loved your experience and thought you’d be great”. I feel so down right now, and I keep thinking it’s me. How do you stop feeling so discouraged? I’m still at my current company/role, I’m just not happy at all so looking to find something/someplace new.
What do unemployment benefits look like now? 450/week plus an additional 600/wk if it’s covid related? Is it taxed as income?

Any 🐠 looking to hire a consultant with S&O + M&A experience? I have a diverse range of experiences across industries and verticals and would be an invaluable resource to any team (my manager’s words, not mine). Interested primarily in tech or retail. Currently interviewing for two FANG positions in ops, but would love to expand my search! Thanks!
If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?
Interviewing for a great position in industry (tech). They have equity comp & great benefits. Spoke to their HR, then interviewed with 2 people in the tax department and am getting scheduled for a next round of interviews. The only problem is: the office is about 1 hr from my house (I own). They said repeatedly that they want someone who will be in the office 5 days a week. I would actually move but can’t rent out my place now due to some repairs going on that will take 4-5 months. Thoughts?
Anyone else feel like their actual work is very disconnected from their paycheck? If I do a great job and create a ton of value for the client I’ll get a maximum of a 15% TC increase YOY (much less due to covid). Similarly if I do the absolute minimum it’s really hard to be fired since I’m in a hot market and they can’t decrease my TC without cutting my base pay (which I’m 99% sure they won’t do). And my raise/bonus won’t even necessarily be indicative of my performance anyways.
