I had an interview this morning and the hiring manager told me they had a hard stop at a certain time, but the interview went over that time by a couple minutes and they kept asking me if they could answer any other questions. How good of a sign is this or does it not mean anything?
What are signs you usually see when you’ll probably get the job? I was a referral candidate and 6 people total are interviewing.

This might have been already asked so apologies in advance, but has anyone gone back to public/advisory from industry?

Currently in Assurance and want to experience private industry as either a Senior Accountant or SEC reporting role but don’t want to shut myself from these other opportunities? Or should I persue advisory first and then private accounting if it doesn’t seem like a good fit?
