Possibly. I’m in the same boat. If it’s flat out reject I presume they would have just told you, or not have said anything?

How do you get over the anxiety of potentially picking the wrong next job? I’ve always felt like I made the wrong career decisions in adulthood (e.g., not taking up computer science in undergrad, the consulting offer I picked after undergrad was in a low growth area, the second job I picked ended up having a terrible manager). As I get closer to finishing interviews and getting offers, I dread trying to figure out where to go because I’m sure I’m going to pick the wrong thing.

Should I follow through with the interview for this role? Is there a chance Deloitte GPS would offer 97K-100K for the consultant level? This is for a Human Capital Consultant role btw
