I’m devastated; I did three rounds of interviews, a weekend case, and I don’t think I’m getting the offer because I lack the finance experience. They just took the job off LinkedIn and just ghosted me. Does anyone have any insights into corporate development roles at strategics or start-ups? I would love to connect.

I’m in the interview process for a job in the Netherlands and they’re asking for my salary expectations.

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)?

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.)

Well-intentioned advice or racist sexist BS?

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.
