Always be yourself. Don't change to try and impress them because if you're not really a match you'll be miserable there. Other than that, the basics. Dress well, arrive 10-5 minutes early, brush up on the company's mission/vision, history and what they're all about, new projects, etc.

Speak clearly, pause, listen. Don’t try to oversell yourself and ask meaningful questions. Good luck!

Thanks for the advice. Can you please expand on "meaningful questions". Any suggestions on what to focus on?

You can always impress them by showing you did your research on the company. Take some time to research their products or services, their wins, mission statement, etc.

Be confident, but not cocky. Make eye contact. Be prepared to "sell yourself" and clarify any questions about your resume. Come to the table with a few questions about the company.

You don't have to go overboard. Just be yourself and just be confident. Make sure to talk in a way that you sound so intelligent. Arrange your thoughts in a logical manner.

Hey, Chi. First time caller.

So I'm considering a switch from law to consulting, and noticed EY has started posting salary ranges for positions. All the mid- to senior-level jobs I'm looking at are in the $95k to $150k range. Is that right? True for all the big 4? Seems super low. I guess I never thought about it before but how exactly do you folks get paid?

Anyway to salvage my stupidity?

Managing partner called and offered the position and asked if I wanted to accept before going I to the salary and benefits. I said yes, then he went through the rest and said a written offer would follow. At the interview, the executive director said they would lay out every on paper before the offer.

I assume I know the answer, but do I just have to suck it up for the year before renegotiating or would calling first thing to negotiate be okay?

Hey recruiters and professionals, I set up a coffee chat with a colleague on the FP&A team at my company for later this week. These are the topics I plan to cover: their journey to the company, challenges the team is facing/what a junior analyst would face, what skills I should be working on, and who I should be connecting with to land a role on the team. Question to the audience, what specific questions should I be asking to get a better understanding of the team/make a good first impression?
