I asked about internal mobility or leadership roles 2-3 years down the road in an interview, and the company told my recruiter that they think I'm a flight risk? Did I fuck up? How do you ask this?
Turning down a company you've been interviewing with through several rounds is a lot like breaking up with someone you've been dating. Agree or disagree?
While browsing the Unethical Life Pro Tips subreddit 😂 do we have to do this much to hear from a recruiter? https://www.reddit.com/r/UnethicalLifeProTips/comments/k12jne/ulpt_tired_of_applying_for_jobs_and_never_getting/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share
I’m in the interview process for a job in the Netherlands and they’re asking for my salary expectations. I know that I may not get the full salary equivalent of what I’m getting in the states, but is there a percentage of the salary I should aim for? One reddit thread said 66% of US salary, for example
Fearless Girl swept Cannes this year. The execution sort of reminded me of a case study from an agency in Hamburg. Any thoughts on the similarities? https://youtu.be/xuouT1qO7Fk
Being ghosted by I company I had two phone interviews and two in person interviews with. When did work life become like my dating life?
Uber driver blasting foxnews With Trump and Bill O interview on, bad mouthing immigrants. I am Asian and the ride was comfy but awkward..... still gave him 5 stars.
Are tucks MBB numbers really that good? I saw a student on Reddit say about 35 mbb internships were granted in their year out of about 150 applicants (70-90 interviews per firm). Not sure what to make of this. Additionally, is it true that the battle is to get interviews and once you get one, then it’s just a matter of you performing (I.e., you’re no longer competing against classmates)?
PM told me I'll be interviewing a consultant who wants to join our project & I can make the decision to if they would be a good fit. Plot twist - Consultant was a bitch to me in grad school. Revenge?
Any advice on how to get through a technical round of an interview with an Indian interviewer?
Talked to a mutual contact today about a role I’m applying to in Asia. (We are both white Americans, he is an expat in Asia.) He warns me, unprompted, to think carefully about the decision to relocate because “white men can date the local women but white women can’t date the local men, so there’s a much smaller dating pool.” What do you think ladies? Well-intentioned advice or racist sexist BS?
I’m miserable in my current job to the point I’ve lost most of my confidence. Got a couple interviews coming up at some agencies I’d love to work in but I’m afraid I’ll bring my misery with me. Cont..
How do I deal with this: junior colleague on one of my teams right now for whom English is not her first language. Embarrassingly bad spelling and grammatical mistakes on decks. Can’t lead interviews with clients bc often they don’t understand her. PD says its all part of coaching and development. But I need to review content, NOT be her ESL tutor, which it feels like I am at the moment. PS. Yadda yadda, I get it: “languageism” is an extension of whiteness and I need to check my privilege.
4 months, 7 interviews, all done and dusted, numerous congratulations mails and messages and now they say they can’t offer the job. Weird flex, but not okay 🤬 IBM, you shithole.
Laid off by Acc, have final round interview for role at client as a new director who would be sponsor to the Acc project. If I get the job, how do I mess with them?
Made a mistake of moving to US 10 years ago thinking this was the best country! Finally after looking for a good job opportunities for 3 years and several rounds of interviews, moving to Switzerland for good. Living in this country has been hell and for everyone who calls it the best country. God bless you. Good luck everyone living in US. Hope to see y’all never. Also goodbye Daddy D. Thanks for the memories!

I absolutely can’t stand when managers message you half way into a meeting “are you taking notes” like if you wanted me to take notes you should have told me before the meeting bc we didn’t have any kind of understanding that this meeting in which we are presenting information to someone else needed *us* to take notes
