Without any details about your level, skill set, etc. you expect people to answer. First thing even before you prep for interview, learn how to frame questions

Thanks ey2. @ey1 the intention is to leave it open ended. If you haven't interviewed recently or want to share some questions there is no need to troll

I just got what are the negatives that show up on your reviews.

Come to Crowe. Hit me up and let's make it happen

Don't worry, their goal is to lowball or not hire you, so stop tying to jump through hoops.

I’m not sure if this allowed but I have a couple of interviews coming up and I’m having a hard time figuring out how much to ask for Experience 3 years of paid social experience, Mostly B2B, enterprise and up clients. Been promoted pretty consistently. In SF. I’ve been told 90-95 is within range from agency recruiters, but this job is in house for a big tech firm ( and would be something I’m super stoked on) am I crazy for asking 110? Or is that to big a jump? Thank you fellow wizards

Had a third interview with CEO of tech startup last week. Now the HR manager emails me saying she wants me to 'hop on a call' with the CFO tomorrow. I already interviewed with him for the second interview. I'm not sure what to expect, it doesn't make sense that I would have another interview with him but I'm not sure what else it would be. Any ideas?

Question for recent Deloitters and other consultants who work at consulting firms with job application forms like Taleo (a detailed form) Did anyone skip the non-required blanks and yet still get an interview/offer? For example, Deloitte application has non-required fields asking for supervisors from each job. I would like to put a note: “My supervisor does not know I am job searching; references available upon request should I be selected as a finalist candidate.” I worry that’ll look bad

Was about to accept an offer with a smaller brand strategy firm and got a push to interview with Deloitte for a partnerships lead position that really matches my profile…but love the culture of the smaller firm. Go for big brand name and bigger check, or growth and connection at smaller firm with exciting work?? Obviously just in first round with Deloitte—but 25yrs old, so trying my best to think ahead and make smart moves!
