Recruiting call: "We've had a number of applicants turn down offers because they're afraid of flying." LOLOL. That's like applying for lifeguard and being surprised when there's a pool. 😂

Hahahahaha, funniest thing I have heard today. Are you sure the recruiters aren't making that up to protect themselves? Who would ever apply for a consulting job (especially at ACN) who was afraid of flying? Not sure I buy this.

Forget work, the limited perspective you have on life if you're scared to jump on a plane and travel overseas should be a disqualifier in itself...

Yeah I find this so strange too. Or the students told eachother that it's a safe bet to not burn bridges when saying no

I feel like of all firms, Accenture is pretty good at staffing people locally. So perhaps they were betting on that until they decided they didn't want to take the risk. Regardless, fear of flight is something people really need to just get over.. We live in a connected world where people fly places. And it's statistically way safer than driving the same distance anyways.

Yeah not being able to fly anywhere sounds so restricting and really limits any sort of growth for you. I knew a kid who didn't run division 1 track because he didn't want to fly

This is what they should really tell them coming from someone who did college recruiting: you'll be flying a lot with very interesting and impactful projects...but if not you'll be local do one hour drive commutes everyday until you do

Should I secure an offer with company 1, and keep company 2 warm? I’d way prefer company 2>company 1, but both are still great exits. Company 2 recruiter said she’ll reach out to managers for me to get me an interview but I don’t know how to much weight to put on this.

I’m not sure if I’m doing anything wrong or if there is more being done behind the scenes that have nothing to do with me. Either way, I’m getting frustrated and my productivity in my current position is slacking as a result.
