I interviewed recently at a big brand. I was cut after the 1st in-person round. As disappointing as it was, I asked recruiter for f/b. They actually replied w/honest f/b I can use going forward 😃
HR from old job wants to reach out to me about something I mentioned in my exit interview. Why would HR want to reach out to me when I’m no longer employed? Been at my new company for a month now. I left bc my old boss was not good. I dealt with HR in past about the issues with my boss & team for months but of course HR was no help resolving the issue. Should I tell HR to shove it & don’t contact me again? I said what needed to be said. I’m very happy in my new job btw.
Mask off: Journalist to freelance copywriter. Started working full-time under contract for an agency that won't hire me. I've freelanced for agencies and in-house marketing teams, but I'm always the outsider looking in. I want to transition to a full-time permanent gig. Interviews seem to go well, 2 agencies went to 3 interviews and nothing. I know I'm totally missing something that agency insiders would understand. Would love advice on navigating uncharted territory. Thank you!
Bain & Company Bain & Company seems to be reaching out to a lot of people to interview. Are they considering the time to case prep for working professionals is between 1-2 weeks max, if not less?
How do you prepare of your interviews?

I am wondering if the CCMC is worth it when it comes to case management positions? I have done case management for 6 years but I am not certified. I find that when I apply to case management positions that don’t require the CCMC I am either overlooked with my experience or I make it to an interview but not selected. I’m debating on whether the 8 weeks of class and $1000 cost is worth it when it comes down to being selected?

About to have my panel interview with 3 EA’s at Meta next week. Any tips? Anyone know what the next step is?

I’ve only had my screening with a recruiter, so I’m a little confused. I wish it were that easy!
I am an international student who applied to mckinsey. I was contacted by my home country office for a first round interview although I did not include it in my office preferences list. I am yet to speak with the recruiter regarding the recruitment process.
Does this mean that all the offices I've put up as preference rejected me but somehow passed on my profile to my home country office?
Will I only be considered for this office?

Has anyone gone through Triplebyte and had a bad experience with their placement process?
My technical interview was whatever (although the guy acted really bored the entire time), but the feedback was positive and I was told that I should keep my eyes open for interview requests, but then after that communication became nonexistent.
Had a interview for a job position, was supposed to hear back from them Friday, then today... No response. My coworker just hit me saying he is quitting tomorrow, when I asked "to where" (cont)

I have a lot of anxiety because I feel I'm trying my best, but there seem to always be corrections or a mistake in the work I put together, and/or I feel like I take longer than everyone else to get tasks done.
Any tips? Is this normal? I try my best to check my work before sending it out to the associate for review, but it feels like I check 99 things, and 1 thing still slips through
