I did Google phone screening interview. They told me they need at least full 4 years of experience at big 4 to be considered. At the time I did not, so they followed up with me one year later (after I reached 4 years at big 4). At that time, I already was determined to make manager before leaving big 4 and told them about it. They said they will keep me in their talent pool and will follow up later. Super chill and relaxed talk with Google recruiter. Nothing to be afraid of!

Haha at pwc 4 I assume the person above was talking the position they applied for and the level of experience needed... Don't be too quick to judge.

It's nothing to brag about, it's not a job... It's an initial screen... The recruiter said 2 45min screen... It does not sound like pure behavioral to me. That sounds like the main interview already. I don't know what to expect and glass door is not much help.

How many years of public accounting experience do you hav r

Manager 1- did you get the job?

Don't interview from your bedroom. It's creepy. Don't hold your phone in your hand if your using your phone. Your interviewer will get sick.

Not true about 4 years. I know 2 people with 1 year experience at big4 that went to google

Working with an (external) headhunter for a role, and just found out they want me to proceed to the second round of interviews. I had told the headhunter after the first round that I was interested in moving forward (although I did express some concerns I had) but after thinking about it, I’ve decided I’m not interested in the role. Does it look bad to go back on my word and drop out of the process now?

I'm a writer. I write books and short stories and really love it. However, in advertising my real power is in developing concepts. To find very creative ways around any problems, that'll actually do something. But agencies immediately shove me into the role of writing copy, just because I can write. And truly; I don't like writing for people who don't want to read. I don't like copywriting at all. Does anyone have any tips on how to deal with this contradiction, and how to define myself?
