Thank you for being willing to do that. Shame the people you spoke with suck. If they hit you up for the referral later, give them one and let HR know how mercilessly transactional the candidate is.

You're appreciated.

I recently had someone reach out from another company asking how to break into transaction advisory from audit over LinkedIn and sent paragraphs of questions. I answered them and didn't get a thank you either. Super lame.

Same thing happened to me the other day! I wonder if it’s the anonymity of the app. I never faced this outside of FB. People are always very thankful otherwise.

Beware of EY FAAS. They’ll have you interview for one location, tell you you’re fine to wfh, tell you they’re fine with you relocating later, and make it seem like you’ll be working on clients there. Then after they tell you they’re giving you an offer they’ll tell you they’re trying to map you to a different office while you’re out of state until you move to the original office location. Really insincere, why not just tell me you’d have to map me to a different office before or during interview
