They’ve had a mass exodus of attorneys from their firm in the past year. Heard they’re in a very fragile state right now so just proceed with caution. Had an old co-worker that lateraled and has since lateraled to a different firm for those reasons.

Anyone recently gone through the interview process of LinkedIn Sales Strategy and Operations? Associate level. Want to know how the interviews were, what all was asked, and if there were any tests, assessments, or case studies.

Hi ladies. I’m not happy in my current role (bored with the work, feel completely undervalued by management, etc) and want to take advantage of this job market to switch into consulting (preferably MBB). I have zero experience with case interviews, so how long do you recommend studying/prepping prior to applying? Should I apply now and prep while I’m waiting for an interview? Will this be enough time to adequately prep? Appreciate any advice!

Hello friends. I just need some encouragement or support, I think? I feel like I’m in a rut with my career. I feel unhappy for a variety of reasons but primarily gender politics. I want to apply elsewhere but I feel like my confidence has been drained, and I don’t quite feel like I’m good enough to get a job anywhere I’d like to work. I just want to make a difference and learn but it all just feels so hopeless right now 😭
