Assuming skills/ relevant knowledge are table stakes and this is no higher than a mid-level exit: HR: did you lie in your resume, why are you leaving/ what’s your leverage (eg potential competing offers if you’re actively interviewing or benchmark against current pay or are you desperate to leave your current job) Manager: Good attitude/aptitude towards learning, strong work ethic and basically a culture fit in terms of “do I want this person in my org?”

Also as opposed to Accenture strategy where it might be someone’s 5th choice to go to, interactive tends to be people’s first choice given our mkt position

Did you end up making a dashboard with public data solely for industry interviews?
