I’ve been interviewing for other companies over the last few weeks and my biggest fear with leaving consulting is losing my ability to bullshit. I can talk circles around people and really sell myself. Has anyone left consulting and been able to keep this superpower?

Case interviews scare me. I know I’m in consulting but before the interview for my current role I had never done a practice case. When I was prepping I barely ate for 2 weeks because I was so stressed and nervous. I have case interviews coming up for positions I really want and I’m freaking out again. I like consulting but don’t know if I can do that all over again just to *maybe* get the job. Any words of encouragement or tips to get me through this and prepare thoroughly? Anything helps

I have been approached for a new job opportunity. Its a good company & normally I would definitely go ahead with the next step but I just found out that one of my ex-colleagues is in the same team that I'm being approached for. It would be at the same level. This person was a really bad employee & really ruined the team culture.. The only good thing I can say about this person is that they were smart enough to quit before being fired. I'm apprehensive to even try & interview here. Any advice?

I’ve been at EY for about 6 years and I am now applying for strategy roles. I know it’s competitive but things aren’t really going my way.

I am so drained and never been depressed before but I think I am starting to get there because of how exhausted looking for a job is 🥴🥴🥺🥺🥺🥺 Any success stories to get some motivation?
