Received an invite to interview for a first round! Wait timeframe do you give recruiters to start preparing for the conversation? Is it within the week? Following week?

If they notified you today, probably end of this week, beginning of next. All depends on how much time you need to feel prepared.

First round - a week, not same week, a week max. Final onsite mutiround (half/full day) - 2-3 weeks max. Less if it's virtual.

Received an invite for a superday very quickly after applying to Goldman. Recruiter never sent me the zoom password and then the password failed to work so everything started a full 15 minutes late. Interviews went great including a “they’ll definitely be a second round” but then I received the rejection email the next day. Do we think the tech issues played into that significantly or just my interview not stacking up to other candidates?

I recently started (5/mo ago) at a new agency and everything is a 180 from my last role and I’m honestly getting discouraged.

How can I turn this experience around?

A question for recruiters. When you call someone asking them if they are interested in an opportunity and then ask them for a technical interview the next day and they ask for an extension does it impact their application? Recently it has happened to me twice that recruiter calls, he has my details and asks if I’m interested and then ask for same day or next day interview. And when I apologize since I actually have job to take care as well they just ghost me. Is this something that’s normal?

Hey everyone - I am 28 with 5YOE (2 in consulting 3 in industry) and am working towards a part time MBA at a T15 program. My current comp is 130k which I am quite happy with (having started at 52). I see posts here stating folks comp in consulting to be around 300-500k. How does one get to those numbers? Are you all in MBB or T2 firms and how did you get to that position? I was hoping to get to those numbers by 35 or 40, and was thinking of a plan to get there.

Help me out, everyone seems to be having much milder symptoms with Omicron. Is the hospital capacity issue due to people panicking and going to the hospital despite having mild symptoms or because staff are out with illness? I don’t understand how the medical system is on the brink of collapse right now. Maybe I have a skewed view of Omicron based on anecdotal experience?

I know it’s all been said before. I would’ve never expected to be in this kind of situation or that it’d go on for so long. Others have lost far more than I have due to COVID. I’m grateful for my health. But I still feel an insurmountable sense of loss from everything that’s happened. A professional opportunity I worked for years to achieve had finally materialized and then disappeared just as quickly. I feel isolated and hopeless, just trying to survive and one day see an end to the madness.
