Advice please! How would you organize yourself? I've been studying for the GMAT 3 months so far and on my last practice exam (3 weeks ago) I scored 670. My goal is 750 so I feel that I need at least another month to study. I also have a MBB interview in Feb/March and I need to start practicing casing... ASAP. I've never been the organized type so I feel like I am drowning with work, +1 work, etc. What would you do? Wish there were more hours in the day :(
What could be a good interview answer to the reason for moving from PA SM to Tax Director/VP tax role?
Ever have an interview so bad you felt almost good about it? The recruiter started our conversation venting about a referral who was grossly under qualified. This immediately shifted to the agency does not follow industry standard titles. They are all very senior...so I should consider a much more junior role (they hadn't talked more about the role at hand). After talking of my experience they then summed me up as a "media person" and I had to correct that I never worked at a media agency.
I have my first round McKinsey phone case interview today and honestly feel nervous enough to throw up. Anyone done this type of screen before/have any tips or pointers to pass?
I’m devastated; I did three rounds of interviews, a weekend case, and I don’t think I’m getting the offer because I lack the finance experience. They just took the job off LinkedIn and just ghosted me. Does anyone have any insights into corporate development roles at strategics or start-ups? I would love to connect.
I received a job offer today for an entry level position. I lack experience in this field and didn't tick off all the boxes in the job description. I completed 2 conversational interviews + 1 additional interview with a skills test. They were very impressed with my skills test and all the interviewers seemed to like me a lot. I think the offer they gave was fair with market price & it pays more than my current job + benefits. I've always been told to negotiate but should I in this case?

What is your company’s stance on voting rights? What are you asking during interviews to get a good idea of where potential employers stand on the issue? What action has/will your company take?
I interviewed with a company about a month ago (internal recruiter call and one call with management) and did not receive an offer. Since then I saw another posting for another location but it’s the same recruiter. We emailed back and forth and he scheduled a call with him before he schedules the management ones. Should I bring up that we’ve done this before?

The guy I’m dating (dating for 1 month, exclusive for 2 weeks) went to test for COVID because he feels sick and wants to postpone his deferred exam. His result came back negative today and he told me that he would try to use an app to change the results so that the university will postpone the exam. I consider this to be a red flag because this sounds like a serious personal integrity issue regardless if he succeeds in doing it or not. He might cheat on other things. What do you think?
Hi! Does your agency have rules about Slack or how to interact with folks on Slack? Asking because of this piece about how Slack was/is used at Away: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.theverge.com/platform/amp/2019/12/5/20995453/away-luggage-ceo-steph-korey-toxic-work-environment-travel-inclusion
Really struggling to get enough protein when striving for a relatively high-protein diet. Everyone relies so heavily on protein shakes and bars but when I consume too much at once I feel bloated and nauseous. Like I can’t get through half a protein shake before feeling ill, or half a protein bar. Has anyone else struggled in the same way? Are there certain products you found that were better than others in terms of digestibility… or do I just need to eat a bunch of chicken every day? 😂
