I’m a upcoming graduate student studying Accounting, and I also have some sort of data analytics and programming background. Recently, I am exposed to the accounting advisory services which makes me feel that this is what I want. Can anyone gives some advices on both the interviews and what the career path looks like? Any thoughts or comments are appreciated!

Thoughts about freelancing someone after you interview them as a trial run? Part of me feels like it’s an obvious way to really get to know how someone works, in a way you never would from just interviews. But I don’t want to commit a faux pas by asking. And I guess it would bias me towards those who are currently not full-time and are able to freelance.

Need advice: have been interviewing for a strat role. Did a case in late December. Someone left the team in new year so they have to reevaluate their org structure. Recruiter and director keep reaching out to confirm interest and just spoke to director. They won’t have an answer for 2-3 weeks now but still like me. Job is still open on LinkedIn. Are they going to hire me or not?

It’s been nearly 7 years since I’ve interviewed. Came to my firm right out of college. Getting back into it after all this time. For the first two companies I’ve spoken to, I’ve spent nearly 6 hours a piece on just the interviews themselves. Is this normal these days? I hate to complain but it seems like a big time commitment, especially since nothing is guaranteed. I also understand it’s my choice to put myself thru the misery 😬 - just looking for some insight on what you’ve experienced.
