Would you cancel an interview (for tomorrow afternoon) when a partner schedules a meeting at the same time?
I need help: In consulting interviews, is it a death sentence to have been part of the COVID-related layoffs at a Big 4 strategy arm? I have now been rejected from two other T2 strategy firms, and apparently the feedback is that “I have great experience” but they “are not moving forward with my candidacy”. I’m getting beaten down here. I have 10 years consulting experience, 7 at health plans, 5 in strategy, and 3 as a manager. I know my industry, function, and story. What am I missing?
For those who work in pricing/product strategy for large asset managers - specifically, what does the work entail? I’m interviewing with Blackrock and am not sure what to expect. I assume lots of analysis/benchmarking on fee structure, what else?

Can we just get rid of the typical job interview?? I feel like we would all benefit from just having a conversation about the position and the candidates skill set/experience w/o all the behavioral questions crap!
As an ADC applying this summer for 2022 start, I haven’t gotten a chance to connect with any L.E.K. Consulting members and I really want to get to know the company better before moving on with my application. Any L.E.K.

Capital One Power Day had three interviews in the morning. HR calls in between to say if you have a fourth in the afternoon. They told me this depends on caser availability. Is this really true, or does something else determine the 4th case?
Can anybody share what to expect from the first round for ZS (Behavioral + Case)? Is it a typical case interview and is it structured vs. open-ended? Would appreciate any insight!

I have an interview soon and suspect their salary band is below what I would accept even in a best-case (glassdoor shows about half of my current TC). Is it rude to push through and see what happens?

￼ I completed a case study for a company about three weeks ago and they finally got back to me and said they wanted to move me to the next step which is presenting my case study. I have a week till that meeting. Would it be inappropriate for me to go back to my case study and tidy it up? I don’t think any of the main information is going to change but possibly change my headline or format of a slide. ￼￼￼￼￼
I am in a situation where my group is about to be laid off. I have not interviewed for 8 years and never in the US. I consider myself extremely talented in the tech field and have contributed to many well used libraries and frameworks but I can’t even get an interview anywhere I apply. Are there any resources to get feedback on what I’m doing wrong?
Tik Tok has made me realize that I should’ve became a real estate developer. Instead I chose a path where I’m afraid to ask for 5% raise, and burn my brain 80 hours a week working for the man.

sooo.... supposed to start with 1 firm next week but got offer from another B4 for a LOS that I prefer. How do I tell first firm that I'm not coming...?
Isnt it weird that they dont pay you a bonus after 10 years at the firm because you are serving your notice. I think its unreasonable to work for the whole year in question, be on the payroll when the bonus is paid out, contribute signifanct revenue to the team and still get paid nothing because its 'discretionary' once you tell them you are leaving.
Can’t help but feel invisible in my current situation- I’ve been pursuing a transfer for over a year (within my same group) and even though I’ve repeatedly asked for help and pulled in directors and partners —I keep getting pawned off to different people. This has cost me a promotion this year although I’m a high performer and my pay is at the high end of my bracket. Meanwhile, white colleagues are getting promoted each year (unheard of). I am told that i’m getting paid well so to be ‘happy’

I have a friend who unfortunately was just laid off as a bank teller. He has four years of experience, but has never done consulting. Is this something that he could try his hand at? Or do you think that he should have more experience or certifications under his belt first? Trying to see if he can start as a consultant.
With 5 years plus experience at 6LPA is too low. And this is always with the support teams like HR. What is that I need to do so that I get some good salary in HR is there any certification which is in demand or yet to come into the market !!
