I accepted a offer from Deloitte USA for a position in their Analytics and Cognitive practice. The BGC is in progress for last 4 weeks and for the last two weeks there are no new updates/requests. How should I interpret this situation? Is this normal now a days for BGC to take this much time? Or are they waiting and watching the recent market downturn and hence holding the hiring? Any inputs and thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Hi ladies! I feel I am ready to find a more managerial role: manager, supervisor, director, etc. I usually take positions I am over qualified for, which leaves me underpaid and not very challenged. However, I think not having previous manager experience holds me back as well. How does someone get manager roles without having manager experience? Someone has to yes in order to gain it, right?! Is there a way to phrase answers in an interview to get the positions?

Anyone here familiar with the hiring process of KPMG consulting in Van? Had a partner interview on Nov 21, thought the feedback was positive but haven't heard back yet (no rejection/offer). Is it something normal or the interview just didn't go as well as I thought?

It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.

Thanks in advance!
