Looking to break into T1 or T2 firms with 7 YOE in consulting mainly facing the public sector. Any tips on how to land an interview or get my foot in the door? It’s getting more and more obvious that it’s time for me to make a move.

Interviewed for Deloitte Tech Strategy SC and got a verbal offer for Consultant instead. I negotiated the offer to 120K salary and 10K signing bonus. I’m a boomerang with 4 years ERP consulting but this past year I’ve been doing DEI Consulting. Spoke with former colleagues who rejoined Deloitte and got much higher offers for SC. How do I go back to the recruiter to negotiate further? I suggested that I’d probably sign but needed time to think. Now I’d like to go back and request 140k salary.

Need opinions.. Over a month ago, I applied as a Content Marketing Manager (3-5 years of exp.) at a software startup. It’s a newly created role at a company with ~15 people.

I was just asked to do another ‘final’ project.. I've spent hours on the others & I’m starting to feel like this process is too excessive.. thoughts?

Anyone know what the format of that interview is? What type of case to expect? Appreciate any guidance on how to prep. Thanks in advance.

So a company I interviewed with took me to the final round but rejected me for an architect role. Then, two months later the hiring manager hits me up for a manager role he thought I would be a good fit before the job was posted. We had a call and he said he thought I would be a long shot replying back to him. Also, he said everyone liked me and no need to interview. He said he has to post it and let HR do their thing before he can make a final decision. Why post a job if you want me for it?

Been passed over for promotion twice (had support from multiple partners both times). Received the top performance rating every year since joining the firm (6 years), which I’ve heard is rare. When passed over, the partners say there were others who have been waiting longer (not necessarily with the highest ratings) and that I should “keep doing what I’m doing” and basically wait my turn. Anyone else face this and have any suggestions/guidance?
