I feel like using star method in interviews in overrated. I stopped using STAR and finally started to get offers. It’s better to be genuine and let the conversation flow than to stick to a structure. Thoughts? Maybe I just got lucky.
I’m currently a senior accountant and I mainly focus on accruals and expense analysis. Prior to this role I was in State & Local Tax. I wasn’t sure if tax is where I wanted to be at the time especially because I heard you can get pigeonholed. I actually kind of miss the work that I used to but also found tax can be very mentally challenging. I’m struggling with trying to decide if I should go back to tax or maybe use my current experience to go into FP&A or a Finance related role. Advise please!

Capital One Power Day had three interviews in the morning. HR calls in between to say if you have a fourth in the afternoon. They told me this depends on caser availability. Is this really true, or does something else determine the 4th case?

Hello all. Recently left an agency position to go back to freelance. ￼Have an idea for a promotional thing to agencies as an experienced freelance copywriter, an ad-industry-specific promo I want to do and need a reality check.￼ When you present concepts (i.e. ad concepts, websites, etc.,) do you use fake body copy? If so, what are the names you call that fake copy? I’ll be glad to share it, but ￼because it would look like some kind of a stealth pitch I’ll wait. Thank y’all.￼

Received an offer from McKinsey & Company and am super stoked to join, but I’m getting quite criticized in my personal life for the decision mostly because of the public image of the firm. I get where they’re coming from, but figured most of the consulting industry was like this, not just McKinsey, and strategy work is what really interests me. Any tips on how to deal with it?

I need help: In consulting interviews, is it a death sentence to have been part of the COVID-related layoffs at a Big 4 strategy arm? I have now been rejected from two other T2 strategy firms, and apparently the feedback is that “I have great experience” but they “are not moving forward with my candidacy”. I’m getting beaten down here. I have 10 years consulting experience, 7 at health plans, 5 in strategy, and 3 as a manager. I know my industry, function, and story. What am I missing?
My firm has not announced any raises yet even though the market has gone up (A LOT) and firms in the area all have done so. I’ve decided to demand a raise to the compensation committee.
