Hey I legit started at S& a couple weeks in the cloud & digital strat group as a senior associate. So i was literally in your shoes not too long ago. With the partners they want to know that you will work well in the team, that u can take direction, that they can put u in front of the client as the main do-er. I was cased by a couple partners as well so be prepared for that. Most importantly… act like youve been there and that you belong. Say you are comfortable with whatever and you have experience in those areas. As cliche as it sounds make it a conversation and add color to yourself by saying you went golfing over the weekend or something to humanize yourself. Feel free to dm happy to help!

Should I assume a company isn't interested if recruiter ghosts? Context: a firm recruiter reached out to me and organised two interviews with a partner and principal. The partner interview was a 30 mins conversation where we walked through my CV (not a fit interview though). For the principal interview, I log on and see the recruiter who gives me a random excuse why principal won't join and said we'll reschedule. It's been almost 2 weeks and I haven't heard back.
