Consulting Exit Opportunities

Is there anyway I can get a re-do on an interview?! I had a phone interview with the hiring manager but it apparently didn’t go as well I as thought 😔

The ship has sailed. Good luck OP and don’t beat yourself up over it. Just think of it as good practice and a lessons learned.

Exactly! Honestly the first few interviews are a little rough because you’re just getting into the swing of things. An amazing opportunity will come up and you will be better prepared based on experiences like these.

Keep your head up OP and keep at it. Think of it as a practice round. If their feedback was that your responses weren't elaborate enough, that may be their way of saying you were unable to demonstrate the depth of knowledge they were looking for. You may very well have it, but perhaps should focus on how you frame your responses. Don't get down, another great opportunity is around the corner!

I completed 9 interviews at a company. Did an assignment netting in a 15 page presentation. Received very positive feedback from those along the way and the external recruiter. Planning to receive an offer today. Just received candid feedback that it "heartbreakingly going to be no" and that it is only based off of something a reference said about me 11 days ago (had interviews since then). What would you make of this? Would you reach out to your references to temperature check what happened?

I don’t mean to be vague but does anyone have experience or insights on if things are “better” as a black person working as a consultant or in house somewhere rather than in an agency? Any POV is helpful. For background I currently work at Ogilvy in a pretty junior role and I see NO ONE that looks like me. Peers or at the top aside from those in HR/diversity and in addition to dealing with the day to day reality of being a POC in corporate America, its hard to visualize a path to “the top”.
