I was asked to do a take home assignment for a product design role which the company loved. They invited me to do a final interview this week. The interview will be with different groups of people (engineers, designers, etc.) and I'll be talking to each group for 30 minutes. I wasn't told anything else about the interview. I'm definitely preparing to discuss my take home assignment project, but is it wise or a waste of time to prepare a slide deck for my portfolio projects?

25 y/o female, only 3.5 years into consulting and can’t see myself doing this forever, rising the ranks and making partner. I feel like a failure/loser for wanting to stoop beneath my potential and exit the rat race at such a young age. Already looking to pivot, but no idea where to go. I’m in change/transformation/strategy so no technical skills. I enjoy helping people be their best (coaching / program management / talent optimization type work). Sad that my only skills are soft skills. Ideas?

I need y’all to amp me up. I’ve had a kick ass year with a handful of awesome accomplishments. I am expecting a promotion in April and have never negotiated a raise. I’ve been with Weber for quite some time so I know I’m underpaid, but I also really love my role so I’m not looking to move right now (I also just had a baby and I don’t think my mental health could take another massive change!). I don’t expect to catch up, but negotiating extra will show I respect myself! Pump me up please! 🙌🙌🙌

I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.
