*recent graduate* Whenever I ask an employer why I didn’t get the job or get to the second step in the interview process, they never respond. So, I’m assuming my lack of experience (I never did an internship in school🤦♀️ ) or portfolio is the problem.
Those of you in a committed relationship, how do you plan to make it work? And did that factor into what schools you're applying to?
Anyone from IQVIA? I just wanted to check something. I gave 2 rounds of interview and got selected. The HR asked for the documents for further process, I submitted them in the second last week of May. I still don't have any update on it. I called them thrice, Then I dropped an email to HR asking for an update, and the worst part is the HR neither replied to my email and when I tried calling yesterday, the HR deducted call. 🤷♂️ What should I do? They didn't release my offer letter too! 💁♂️
I have made a large mistake - generalist consultant who spent most time in ppt and word but now am an investment associate at a PE spin off firm. I have no idea how to use excel nor understand any financials.. the interview process was 2 rounds and they’re paying me 70% more. Week 2 and I’m struggling and working 14 hour days.
I was so good and confident when I was interviewing with consulting firms. Now that I am here for something close to two months, I am really struggling. Struggling to piece together coherent questions and thoughts. Struggling to speak up. Team structure is weird - no one has the bandwidth to address dumb questions, feel like I’m lost without good guidance. Overall this is not good for anyone wanting to be successful in consulting. Any thoughts or advice? Is this the initial phase, gets better?
Exponent worth it for interview prep?
What’s the best way to return to law after taking a much needed break from it? I became seriously burnt out and was able to take some time away from working but now it is time for me to renter the workforce. Unsure how to approach this on resume, in cover letters, interviews, etc.
Just realized I forgot to put my minor on my resume (Business) and only listed my major, but the minor is on my transcript which is included in all my applications. I’ve interviewed for some spots and waiting to hear back but now I’m scared that this oversight will cost me😭
Applied for Blackstone’s mid-year analyst class about a month ago. I completed both the pymetrics games and the one way interview, but haven’t heard anything since. Just wanted to check in with others in the same situation. P.S. : campus recruiting said that decisions should ‘come soon’
Thoughts on the importance of visiting B schools prior to applying? Does it really make an impact on how they view you? I applied to a few schools a couple days before the deadline...
Currently an Associate at Booz Allen in Consulting & Mission Operations,l was contacted by a recruiter at PwC Advisory, interviewed and was offered a Sr. Associate position. Pros/Cons?

Got a 44 V / 44 Q on a recent GMAT practice exam. I was a finance major at a reputable state school and have mostly A’s (and a few B’s) in my quant heavy courses. If I score similarly on the real exam, is the high V enough to offset the lower Q? Applying to T10. I’m a white female if it matters and am trying do either consulting or tech (i.e. nothing super quant intensive).
Any one who has done CSCP certification and can help guide through the exam preparation ?? Does it help when applying to MBB??
Waiting to hear back after final round interviews this week...not gonna be able to get anything done 😩
Recruiter wants to connect after my interview with a hiring manager. I know I’ll find out during the call but I’m anxious. Do you think this is a good or bad sign?
Anyone here work at Coinbase? I have a second round interview for the Compliance Tools & Data Analytics role and was wondering if anyone could give any insight as it will be a Tech Screening. TIA! Coinbase
Highest signing bonus at senior consultant level in consulting? Curious what MBB offers?
If you submitted an H1-B application for this year's lottery, does it remain active through all subsequent lotteries this year? Specifically, does the submission of an I-485 under the family-based green card process lead the H1-B application to be withdrawn / not considered for any lotteries after the I-485 receipt date? Thanks!
I’m so burnt out. My current situation at work doesn’t allow me to take a break for a while. Is it too crazy to switch to another big 4 just so I can have 1-2 months break?
Potty training question for 21 mo- I am reading Oh Crap potty training & trying to find time to do this over a LONG weekend probably Thanksgiving as it will give me a good lead of one month to practice with my child. In the meanwhile, her daycare has started teaching potty training. When home my LO removes pants, goes and sits on potty by herself when she thinks she wants to pee with the diaper on as that is not something she can remove easily. What approach do you think is the best here?
My credit card is on my old employer’s Azure subscription. I told them to remove my credit card, they haven’t done that, and I got charged again when I’m not even working at that company. What can I do on my end to make sure my card won’t get charged anymore?
Thinking about joining Accenture (US). Does anyone know when the maternity leave policy is effective? I have heard it may be Day 1 of employment, but usually it happens after a year.
Trying to determine if I’m off-base: 9ish yrs of exp (7 + 2 post MBA). Focus in healthcare strat and org change/transformation — when folks call I’ve been asking for $175K base but the roles have topped out at $150K base. These are director level roles in industry and health tech. Is $175K too high? I’m currently at a T2 strat firm…
Doing it, little by little. $1.5M for some reason feels like we’re finally on the right path. Goal is to retire when we are able to achieve median household (USA) income the rest of our lives.
#deltasucks. Bf &I planned to meet in NOLA. I go from NYC with AA and he from SLC with Delta. D emailed this morning that flight will depart 2.5hrs later with no reason. Call wait time is +2 hrs -WTH
You are told that you have exactly two years to live from today; you will be in good health for that entire time. Are you happy with your life choices to date? What would you stop, and what would you start? (These questions are usually “one day” or “six months”, but that feels implausible and forced.)
What can I do get into MBB down the road? I'll be going back for an MBA but it won't be H/S/W, either UVA or U-Michigan. I'm in Technology consulting and have zero actual strategy experience

Do you like being on retainer or more project based contracting? I'm in a good place financially being on retainer but I want to be pushed more creatively as a personal objective because I feel I'm not getting it at my current contracting agency. That would mean revising or going off retainer to open up more working hours for unknown possibilities. Open to hear your thoughts, life experience, and opinions. Thanks Creatives!

Hi All, Say you have an offer for Senior Test Engineer and SDET (not senior). Compensation is same. Both the companies are good. Given the narrowing boundaries between testing and dev, which position is better in the long run? I thought it'd be SDET. But, I'd like to have expert/experienced opinion.
How do you calculate savings? Is it net pay - expenses? What came into your bank account - expenses? Basically, does my tax considered expense and my HSA/401k considered as savings?
