How long after final round big 4 interview for experienced hires do you usually hear back about an offer or rejection?
Hey everyone- So I didn’t get an offer for a consulting role that I had initially applied for, however the recruiter said all the feedback was positive and they’d like me to interview for a different role in the group. Are my chances of getting this other role a lot higher ? Thoughts? Thanks!

FISHES I NEED YOU. I have been posting on here about how I’ve struggled to get out of consulting after an 8 month interview process with various final rounds where I did not land a job. NOW I have another opportunity with an ops role at Uber and could really use some feedback from someone who has presented the take home case before. If you have any info about helpful tips you can share please comment or DM and I would be forever grateful and will give back myself one day!
I have an interview coming up for Rev Strategy & Ops under Customer Solutions. This will be my 5th interview with Google, after things not working out for two other roles. I am so tired 😓 & with little confidence. The recruiters have all said I have had great feedback but it’s the cases get me. So many weekends have been spent prepping with the same result. Yet the recruiters continue to back me; placing me in the process for more roles. Just feel hopeless & like I’m letting good ppl down 😞

Hi 🐟, starting a grad scheme in Management Consulting at Accenture UK. Do you have any insights on standing out? I would like to transfer to their Strategy practice ASAP. On a side note, had a bit of bad luck as I aimed at Strategy Consulting in the UK so rejected BCG Poland for it and failed in a final round to McK UK, but then A did not think I got enough experience for Strategy so I'm looking for a genuine advice on this. I suppose interview wise I'm there.

I’ve been asked to assist on a few very visible and very high stakes account meetings. The thing is, I’m no where near the most senior, but I am one of the only women. I’m in my head that I’ve only been asked as a ‘token’ so the project doesn’t look bad for being so male-heavy. How have other people 1) assessed if they were being tokenized, 2) gotten out of their own heads about it, &/or 3) found meaningful resolutions that promotes gender equity?

Just got home from being COVID tested. Went to a school gymnasium. They space out patients well. I was the only patient, registered with 2 ppl behind a plastic screen. Walked all the way to the end of the basketball court to greet a nurse in a face shield. She swabbed both my nostrils and twirled it back in there for 15 seconds each which seemed like forever. It wasn’t too uncomfortable, it made me want to sneeze. Results in 5 days. Just as I left another patient came in.
