Show of hands; who has been laid off because your agency lost a big client? Also, when you interviewed for your next job did you feel comfortable saying that? And do other agencies understand?
Currently interviewing with Google and working with a recruiter in a specific function, is it frowned upon to keep applying to stuff if it’s relevant to my experience (outside recruiters function)....
Why do recruiters asks you how things went after an interview? What’s the rhyme and reason? Clearly they find out from the interviewer lol
I'm looking to pivot from consulting into tech. I've gotten lots of interesting from tech companies on the ops side but am much more interested in product management. Any advice on books or courses to help make the transition? I'm struggling to land PM interviews at companies that aren't tiny startups :(
Excluding the depression/recession we’re currently in, how many applications do you typically send out before getting an interview? I’m at 47 right now with no interviews and I’m beginning to lose my patience
So I've had multiple interviews at a NY agency for an account role. Spoken with the President but felt I didn't do as well as I could. Maybe a bit long winded in parts of my response. The whole vid..
I am a background check away from putting in my notice. KEEP grinding if you’re miserable and/or have trouble getting out of bed in the morning. This took a lot of ghosting and interviews+offer letters being taken off the table due to COVID. Stay humble and you’ll be next. Take a midday walk and schedule some coffee meetings to expand your network and stay sane.
For MBB interviews, what is a good gauge to expect for quantitative complexity? The case study books all have cases ranging in complexity from easy to hard, but not sure if I’ll get absolutely floored by the real interview

@Bain folks: I got invited to a 10-min digital interview (HireVue). Any idea/tips on what to expect?
Has anyone negotiated a second time for your comp and how did you approach it? I interviewed for the same practice at two comparable size firms. I like Firm A a bit better but they gave me a 15% lower package comparing to Firm B. Negotiated with Firm A and they matched to the exact number Firm B offered. The fact that they didn’t even bother to offer a little bit higher than Firm B bothers me a bit, since it doesn’t make me feel like they really want me. Do you think Firm A is low balling me?
Interview on Monday for diligence. Any tips?

When you express an interest in a Credit Fund to a recruiter, will you fall under the PE or HF interview path?
Completely bombed an interview yesterday, and I’m ok with that. I realized how wildly unprepared I was and how I can make it better for the next ones I have lined up! It’s ok to fail and learn from mistakes. Also my kids were running around in the background so hopefully that wasn’t the reason 🤣

Been interviewing with Delloite for a role in Risk and Financial Advisory - cyber risk infrastructure team, want to know if this a good area and what is work life balance ? Would be good to know what I am potentially getting myself into. Deloitte
Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.
I don’t understand how people keep posting about the bench and being unassigned. I’m in advisory(not audit) and my entire LoS is trending 90%+ utilization
Has anyone interviewed with EY recently? What is the digital assessment they are having? If someone who has taken it can shed some light that would be really helpful! TIA

Help: The 2 interviews in this round are a week apart, I just had the 2nd interview and realized I didn’t send a thank you note to the 1st interviewer… is it better to only send to 2nd interviewer or send a one-week late thank you note to 1st interviewer?
Has anyone ever interviewed for an entry level role, but were offered a higher level role based on the interviews and experience? If so, what did you do or say? Context in comments.
Got a call from an AWS recruiter for an L7 Principal TAM position. Any thoughts? She mentioned total comp maxes out at $300k, which is approx 25% below my target for jumping. Am I being too greedy?
Are jobs in Transformation (mainly digital trans) desirable? Do they pay well? I’m very confused on what would be a good consulting exit if I don’t want a classic FAANG.
