Is it okay to wear a nice white blazer to a zoom interview? I’m in Nevada, so women are expected to dress conservatively. The office I’m interviewing for, however, is fairly casual.

Is that all you have? Probably fine, but I generally like to avoid being memorable for a clothing item, rather than what I did/my credentials so I would typically just do black or something that won’t be memorable at least for an interview.

I think this is perfectly fine as long as you look put together. I mostly wore white shirts and dresses when interviewing via Zoom actually because it was during summer and I would just wear what I would normally wear to the office during summer and I got offers all around. If someone doesn’t want to hire you because of your choice of clothing that they can barely see through a screen I wouldn’t want to work there.

Those that have provided a salary range to Big 4 during interview, where does your offer tend to match up? Towards the bottom of the range you provided or mid range? How much room is there for negotiation post offer?

I'm currently in a process for senior associate at a Big4. The process began on July, yet between the first and second interview it took like 3-4 weeks. And between the 2nd and 3rd like 7 weeks. I sent an email to HR during those weeks asking for an update and didn't have an answer. Then it a 3rd one was scheduled three times (the manager didn't connect to the first 2) and next week I have the last interview with 1 partner. Is the timing normal? Or were they looking for other candidates or what?

hey, fishies! i got a dilemma. would you take an offer that’s $5k less than your desired salary range/expectations? (e.g. you say your range is $115k - $120k & they come back with $110k). but also this would technically be a $5k cut from your current salary, which is pretty much maxed out for its current title/salary band.

HOWEVER, i’d be moving from a midsized agency to a very prestigious agency, which also covers 100% of your healthcare premium AND deductible…
