What role did you apply for?

We really look for people that have led the project hands on. Think lead biz consultant vs project mgr. My guess is that your resume was heavy on theory and numerical results but light on the details that show that you actually did the work and know how to apply the concepts. Just my two cents...hard to speculate without more details. Also....could just be bad luck.

How can we give advice on improving your resume without seeing your resume? I guess general principles apply - show your impact, don’t have it read like a job description. Show numbers, no typos… improved X by Y% by Z, etc etc

Deciding between current firm and other offer—same salary, offer has slightly worse benefits. Current wlb can’t be beat (25-30hr work weeks) but bored and capped out career growth here. Other offer is a very interesting role w decent upside potential but hours will be more like 45-50. Any thoughts?
