I have an interview for social media strategist with a rising DTC startup in NYC. I’m feeling imposter syndrome, since I’ve never marketed such a big, hip company. What books can I read or courses can I take to come into the interview solid and prepared? Most of my marketing theory is based on Seth Godin books and reading psychology.
LEK🐠, how different is our casework (pack creation / iteration, model approaches, expert interview formats) compared to MBB? If it’s fairly similar, I’d turn down the MBB offer I have to pivot into tech. If MBB gives a new consulting experience, I’d accept. Generalist path. TIA🙌🏼 L.E.K.

Thoughts on Jabian consulting? Up for promotion in July, and got presented to interview with Jabian. Working on getting to Capgemini Invent right now after my promotion. Jabian is offering a much better salary but its a boutique firm. Should I consider Jabian, or go to Capgemini Invent and get better exit opportunities?

How would you describe the “it” factor when interviewing? Is it obvious when someone doesn’t have it, and is there anything I should avoid doing? I’m feeling pretty good about my PEI and casing skills, but want to avoid being that candidate that gets dinged for not having “it.” Thanks! 🙏🏼
I've started my job hunt in earnest. Revamped my resume, been setting up informational interviews, getting emails from recruiters ... I'm so excited for the next step!

Two of my really good friends at work have had their work dry up in the past few months (because of the Rona). I'm like two months ahead of them on hours, and they're worried about not making their minimum billable requirements. Feel sort of guilty and try to avoid talking about hours with them. I'm just hoping the firm doesn't give them trouble...
Expectations for a raise from Associate to Senior Associate at KPMG? I got around 14% my first year as an associate; 20% too high to assume?

How frequently is a PE investor realizing a full fund return? I get that it’s hard with timing. But let’s say it’s a $750m fund. Returns 3x MOIC. $2,250M. 20% is $450M. You’re an MD with 2% of the carry pool earning $9M. How often is that $9M paying out? Would depend on a typical rate of capital deployment and fundraising.. let’s say you raise a fund every other year. Average investment is 3-4 years. If you invested the whole fund in 1-2 years. And do this with over 10 years, that’s $45M?
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.

Got an Amazon offer (they reached out to me, interview process lasted several months) but discovered I was pregnant after getting the offer. For medical reasons and complicated history of miscarriages, I can't commit to a start date prior to delivery. In order to be transparent, I have shared the news with the recruiter. Should I expect them to withdraw the offer/any advice on what to do?
