Interviewing for some small management consulting firms. Seems like live cases are pretty common as part of the process. Not so much the Bain / McKinsey type questions but smaller versions of them. Any tips on preparing? Good resources to check out?

Had a hirevue for Goldman. Next day my status got updated to interview. It's been 3 weeks but I haven't heard back, and I don't have any recruiters to follow-up with. What do I do?

All of my friends and seems like everyone around is looking for a job change as I see on a average, everyone is getting close to 100% hike in new company, is this just a bubble, because hiring and job is wfh, or this trend continue even next year once the physical offices open up? I'm going through a bad FOMO, seeing everyone change companies and getting double the pay. Tried giving interviews, but many rejected me just because of my 90days notice period. What should I do? YOE-2.5

Had a lateral interview that seemed to go well, with an invite for a second interview just 4 days later. Said they'd be in touch. After one week I followed up writing sample. They thanked me and said they'd be in touch "next week" (which was this last week). Never heard back. Any advice on what to do next? Don't want to be annoying, and don't know what a typical time-frame is.

Interviewing with a small internal strat team (currently 3 FTEs) led by the CSO. One VP was awesome, Ex MBB really energetic/excited is with 1.5 yrs in tenure. Then interviewed with the other VP and Manager. They weren’t great, overall not quite at the same level as the VP in terms of professionalism and pedigree. They were very tactical and felt more like middle managers without vision. The latter two seem to have grown up in the company (3-4 years)
