I have an interview next week for a consultant role that I thought was along the level of my experience for a strategy role. After more digging, the senior version of this role aligns with my exp more. Should I bring this up in the first interview (panel of 4 people)?

I’d reach out to the recruiter

Yes. Likely to be same panel, but would be good for them to have that context ahead of time as they’re thinking at what level to question to at, grade you on, etc. If someone was interviewing for a staff position it would be hard for me to say, they should be a senior, unless that is very clearly observed in the interview. Short story tell the recruiter. Going to be easier to have expectation at higher level in interview then start lower and try to work your way up.

Hi Fishes!! I am looking a referral at JPMC for software engineer.

I got laid off and am putting together my CV. I’m confused and would like advice on how to structure my resume given in consulting we move across so many different roles and type of project work. Would anyone mind sending me an example of their CV? I’m targeting FAANG and start ups at the moment for product management roles. Background is in human capital consulting though I’ve had technical roles in the past and one traditional product management role in a short project.
