Anyone here recently interviewed with McKinsey Digital? Have a interview coming up and would appreciate any help I can get! TIA!
How long did you wait between interview rounds? I had my first R1 interview in may, and found out around Memorial Day that I was moving on to the next round. Since that day, I’ve followed up a few times (1x every 2-3 weeks) but it’s been radio silent. The Hiring Manager who I have spoken to said I’m still on their candidate list. I know the process at Google takes awhile, but wondering if I should continue to follow up/if this is an indication. It’s for a Pgm role in GCP
Any CBS ED applicants heard back on interviews / rejections? What does the average timeline of response look like?
Hi fam, I need some advice. I have an offer to leave consulting to go to a “startup” I’m really excited about. That said, the comp is on the lower end of what I was hoping for (slightly lower than what I’m making now, including equity) and there’s a very good chance I’m getting promoted to manager next month at my current firm. No room to negotiate TC so that’s off the table. I’ve interviewed for a few FAANG roles (which didn’t work out for a mix of reasons) with TC much higher than...
I have started looking for a new job after being at my first post-law school job for only a couple of months. I’ve been applying and I’ve talked to some recruiters who seem wary of me being early in my career and leaving. Would love some advice from people who have experienced something similar (staying at my current job is not an option at this point)
Had second interview with MD and don’t think I did well 😔 at least it’s Friday and can drink away sorrows
Interviewing for jobs honestly sometimes feel like the hunger games where only one person survives the fight
How many people are waiting for bonuses before leaving their current firms? I’m at PwC and our bonus will be given on 10/1. I’m pretty sure my entire team between director and senior plan to start interviewing after 9/15 or 10/15. Are there any other firms who have yet to pay out bonuses yet? Wondering how hard it will be to find something in a couple of months.
Hey Googlers. Currently going through the interview process and got there via referral. Im just curious how serious the actual referral is taken when considering someone for a job/interview? For example at B4 a referral just gets you a look at HR and the text of the referral and who it’s from doesn’t matter at all, it’s more of a checking a box exercise to get HRs attention. Is it the same at Google or is it more significant?
I am currently applying to consulting from undergrad and am wondering what the best additions to my resume would be. I currently have pro bono consulting and advisory experience with nice outcomes, have worked on some entrepreneurial projects, and have interned at a startup as well. What would be the best addition if I could choose between research work at my university, interning at another startup, and starting another company?
How do you all navigate a job search while working? I'm looking to move to another job and I'm currently in my first post-undergrad job. Finding it difficult to identify the most efficient steps to switch. Is networking the most important step? What is the most efficient way to get the interview invite?
Help! Need some tips on negotiating. Step by step. SC at Deloitte offered at AWS for L5 data scientist. Big raise to $240k TC. 3 YOE+MS. Word of mouth says that this is a good offer for my location (DC). I have a bunch of questions and I'm also looking for any tips for anything I'm missing. -Even if it's a good offer, is there always $ on the table to ask for? -I have a final interview elsewhere this Thursday. Should I start negotiating now or wait until I hear on the other option? ...
How long did it take to process H4 and H4 EAD this past year. My SO just got their EB1 denied after multiple RFEs. Now have to switch to H4, as the H1B is expiring soon. We’re applying for an O in parallel. Looking for advise or positive stories to stay hopeful. I have an approved I-140
Had an interview last week that went well. The next day, HR sent an additional application to fill out (basically same info as the online app). Is that a good sign or usual process for 2 apps? Still waiting to hear back.
3 weeks ago I applied to a CM role with KPMG and last Thursday I received an email to fill out the KPMG Online Employment Application as I move forward to the interviewing process and contact my recruiter with any questions. However, no recruiters have reached out to me yet. What should I do? (I applied on my own and am not in the referral program)

Founded club and other ECs from college, recent advisory board positions but don’t have much to list from them yet. Target is consulting.
Hi, Can anyone guide me how to prepare for the case study round in Accenture Strategy Canada? I'm a lateral hire
Working with an (external) headhunter for a role, and just found out they want me to proceed to the second round of interviews. I had told the headhunter after the first round that I was interested in moving forward (although I did express some concerns I had) but after thinking about it, I’ve decided I’m not interested in the role. Does it look bad to go back on my word and drop out of the process now?
News happens. 45 point run up in ES in one hour. We ticked into new highs. But, as long as we are within 10 points of the close, we will fill the gap, meaning some pressure on the open. Obviously, got blown out of my sells, but have reestablished up here at a 93 average. Short from 3093
What are your thoughts on moving from analytics consulting (incentive compensation, forecasting) to strategy consulting? I recently made the same move and am wondering if I made the right choice?
What t2/MBB firms are hiring at the post undergraduate or less than 2 years experience right now? Thanks
Looking for advice. I’m currently interviewing for a position that pays $20k more than I make now. It seems like the job would not be giving me much for my portfolio and may have some work/life balance issues (but tbh what agency doesn’t). I’ve got piles of student loan debt. I’m only in year 2 of my career. Do I take this job for a year, deal with the downsides, pay off a huge chunk of my debt, then get back to fun stuff? Or will it hurt my career to have a portfolio gap?

Well fuck. I got laid off. Just when you think you’re in the clear, 2020 brings the pain. Guess it’s true that the big title comes with a big target.
I need some must-read book recommendations. Can be professional improvement or otherwise stellar non-fiction. What has you raving?
Up for promotion to manager, have an offer to leave Big 4 for a 35% pay bump. Would you try to negotiate if you know others who have jumped to the same company for 15% more?
Left Public in January after getting my CPA license. At an industry gig now doing tax....is there any point to doing CPE and keeping my license active if I'm not using it? I'd reactivate it when applying for new jobs but don't plan on job hopping for another 3 yrs or so.
Physical book recommendations? Looking for topics on Python, ML, DS, etc. Any interesting must reads in the field? Looking heavy to up-skill and get more technical! The journey begins now.
Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.
In EY advisory during promotion year will there be extra salary increment apart from the normal year end appraisal? Expecting promo from SC to Manager
How common is PIP in consulting? When someone is fired in consulting, is it normally preceded by a PIP, or is that the abnormal case? (Talking firms 1000+ people)
