First consulting firm to go bankrupt or acquired? Any votes? No travel, no H1Bs, and recession = plenty of market disruption.
Leave for another consulting firm even tho I’m up for promotion in a few months at my current firm? Pros of leaving are better work life balance, not stuck in one industry, minimal travel.

Got final interview with 2 ppl from Deloitte yesterday, 1 is a manager and the other is a partner. I think I did well with the manager.For the partner, he asked 2/4 questions that I did not prepare so did not answer as well as expected. He stopped asking me after just 10 mins with those 2 questions. Given that I have some strengths from my resume ( high gpa, passed cpa) and fluent communication,friendly manner. Any hope? Position: Audit staff.

I have an interview scheduled for this Friday and I don’t think I’ll be ready or have enough time to prepare. I just checked my email and realized how much work I have to get done and it’s looking like I’ll be working a lot of hours this week so I won’t have much time to prepare for my case or technical interview. Should I email the hiring team and ask to reschedule or just not sleep this week so I can fully prepare?

Need some advice: For context I’m an engineering student - I’ve gotten a role as a business analyst for a health tech startup that just raised their series A (10M) and is rapidly scaling.They brought me on part time until I finish up school in the spring.

I’m going to finish-but how do I make it easier to balance

I’m currently a senior accountant and I mainly focus on accruals and expense analysis. Prior to this role I was in State & Local Tax. I wasn’t sure if tax is where I wanted to be at the time especially because I heard you can get pigeonholed. I actually kind of miss the work that I used to but also found tax can be very mentally challenging. I’m struggling with trying to decide if I should go back to tax or maybe use my current experience to go into FP&A or a Finance related role. Advise please!

Hello... I have cleared three rounds of interview and my recruiter said I am still in contention for the Job position at Deloitte. However, I don’t see things going progress since 2 months.

I don’t know when will they even do my background check... I don’t want to miss an opportunity with Deloitte.
