Good questions to ask in an interview? I’m rusty
I am applying for jobs atm, and someone from an agency told me as an advice: “Don’t just say you’re a copywriter, say you’re hybrid or digital or whatever, the future of CW is dead”. Do you agree?
For those of you who are interviewing with MBB and trying to transition from B4/ACN, are you currently in strategy roles at your respective firms?

Have first rounds with McK and BCG in two weeks (undergrad) and am liberal arts major. I’m nervous about math portion of case interviews - any resources for practice case math outside of rocket blocks? Or general advice?
I’ve been in consulting for 3 years now and I’m burnt out. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to make the transition from consulting —> biz ops (skills to market, interview prep, etc?) Also any recommendations on how to get data experience on projects?
How often do you feel that you’ve nailed an interview, and then gotten an offer? Alternatively.. How often have you gotten an offer despite what felt like an “okay” interview?
Is there anything that an interviewer does during an interview whether that’s first round, during a case or final round that makes you think, this is going well and I will be advanced to the next stage / extended an offer? In that same vein, what makes you think, I effed up ?
Curious if anyone knows anything about Accord Consulting in Mass? My son goes to Brown and has an interview for an internship. They seem really new?
What’s the dress code for virtual interviews now? Have a first round with BCG and debating if a crisp shirt will be fine, or if I need a suit? It’s also super hot, so don’t want to be sweating the whole time 😓
Just found out I have a four hour long interview coming up. Does anyone have good excuses for getting out of work?
Damn. Was lucky enough to land an interview. The interview went numerous rounds, it was super positive, so then I decided I would be 100% honest about something I wasn’t good at, in hopes of being clear that I was ready to grow. Then I got ghosted, and I think it’s because of the said honesty. Feeling low and stupid for ever admitting a “fault” in an interview instead of just telling them that I’m perfect.
Where do you go in nyc to do phone interviews?
Hi fishfam, any idea what the interview process for senior consultant in Deloitte USI looks like? Do you know anything about the case study initial round? Is it a take home exercise?
Biden calls Arizona "an important city" during an interview. Truly unfortunate the Democrats continue with the elder abuse of making him go through with this campaign. This is like checking a guy out of the nursing home and dropping him off in a random place and letting him wander off. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://m.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DAQXHn5-igKw&ved=2ahUKEwi3u8PZm-zqAhWRlnIEHa3WDVUQtwIwBXoECAYQAQ&usg=AOvVaw0n02Rz7lmrrFbu8N2kAuvq&cshid=1595811150099
Left the country without advanced parole while i485 pending and re-entered as a visitor (i know dumb). Got an green card interview next week. Is it a 100% denial? Or any chance uscis didnt notice.
Hey I’m going through the interview process with a few consulting firms and am looking to get more practice. Does anyone have a pdf of a case book they can share? Also, if anyone else is interviewing and wants to run a few practice cases over Zoom let me know!
Anyone practice meditation? What are some of the benefits and any recommendations on how to get started?
“If I said / did / acted the way the client just did, I’d probably get fired for it.” - Me, multiple times each day 💭
Delta and Korean Air JV?
Roth or Trad 401K? $210K in yearly household income + 10% bonus (just wife and I, both 32y.o.). Take home pay is about $140K - includes 401K contributions and health benefits. Can't decide if Roth makes sense as I don't anticipate our retirement income will exceed current spending levels. I get the appeal of tax free withdrawals but at the expense of paying more up front. Any advice?
I don't usually fly American.. but is terminal 4 always this filthy in LAX? L there's literally piles of trash on all the tables and bathroom floors. I've seen cleaner bus stations in S America...
Just received an email from KPMG recruiter to schedule a phone interview. I applied for a senior position. What questions can I expect from the phone interview? I feel nervous...
Which of the big 4 has the best compensation? What I have heard is Deloitte has lowest base but highest bonus, EY has the highest base but lowest bonus, PwC is 2nd in base and bonus.
Partners or whomever can help me understand about billing and hours. To keep things simple, let’s say you only have one staff to work 1,700 billable hours a year on a $60k salary and you have only one job that and the rate charged to the client is $300/hour and an projected hours budget of 1,700 hours. So ideally you would have revenue of $510k. If the staff takes less time partners make less money and if they take more time partners make more money while the staff keeps the same salary?
Thought experiment: Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? The US today is about to crumble from within, similar to the Soviet Union in the late 80s.
I got an offer from a firm I like. Offer is good I’m happy. But have a question — Would it be ok to push back on the start date in the offer letter? I would liken to have a week or two between when I’d end at current firm and start at new firm. If this is ok, should I talk to them directly, or go through my recruiter?
No money for award submissions and executive trips to Cannes with expense accounts for expensive restaurants and wine this October, until our furloughed brothers and sisters are brought back. If you hear that this is happening, please post about it with hashtags.￼ Solidarity Now.
I know this is stupid / petty but I just found out my new salary & I finally make more than my husband! He’s always made more & I spend more than him and have always felt bad about it. Not any more 🙌
Once Canada reopens for international tourists, it should be possible to stay there for 14 days and traveling by plane to the US right? Coming from a Schengen country (with US work visa) and looking into options to make my way back to the US. The US/Canada border closure only affects land travel as far as I know..?
FYI, I suck with money. Fortunately I've been able to save a bit recently. Where to put my money to work? I suck at investing but heard about some high interest credit unions? Any specific advice?
I’m wondering whether and how other firms credit time spent by associates on business development for purposes of meeting the annual billable hours target. Is such time fully credited?
Any advice/insight on suggested exit opportunities into the sports industry for a staff (soon-to-be senior) consultant with 2-3 YOE at EY in business transformation consuktint? Don’t want to aim too high but also don’t want to lowball myself. Thanks in advance!!!
Anybody successfully create additional income streams? Disciplined saving and investing is obviously the safe path to wrath, but I don’t like being wholly dependent on my salary and the market
How much PTO for manager level at Accenture? Are there any collective disconnects? Deloitte shut down for 5 days July 4th and the week between Christmas and New Year's. Then there were the other federal holidays, of course. Is there a typical sign on bonus for manager level?
