OP, if youre getting the interviews, ur book is prolly fine. How are your interviewing/ppl skills? Id focus more on that. Im hoping u dont come off as thirsty/desperate-sounding in the interviews as u do here. Its ok to feel desperate, but mix in some self-belief too. Anyway, keep going at it, n fuk it son, make a job happen. Succeed dammit

Is your agency hiring?

I know you say that its hard with all these unposted jobs and im not gonna lie, IT IS. The thing thats worked for me is more than to ask for a job or feedback on my portfolio, I connect with people at all levels at the places ive like to work in. Create a relationship, that way when they do have a position youll be in mind. Its playing the long game, sure, but it cant hurt.

Maybe your book isn't good enough. What kind of feedback are you getting on it?. Are you asking for feedback or just asking "are you hiring?" Sometimes asking for feedback is a better way into the hiring conversation. It's not a closed question. It's open and allows for conversation, following up, and rapport building.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

NYC, rising 4th year, V5, M&A. In July, I got the call from the partnership that I should begin to “explore other options.” I always knew when I left, whether on my terms or not, I would exit to finance. It’s been a rough transition. Been pretty discouraged and hit a low point of shame & apathy in August. Just wanted to say that I finally landed my first formal PE and IB interviews this week and am beginning to feel hopeful again! I think it’s all gonna work out.

I am a junior consultant and I moved directly from the university to the consulting world, when I was at the university I was aware that the most important part of the interview process was the cases part. Now I am interviewing for a more senior position in a different consulting firm, should I still expect business cases or another type of questions?

I got an internship-unpaid-which I thought would be a good way to learn. But I found myself working just with the owner and not getting any guidance from someone on my field, because he doesn’t have any marketing or PR managers, it’s just him. I feel that he hired me to work for free and come up with a plan without any other guidance that what he knows about the industry and the objectives he wants. Is that how it works? Am I complaining for nothing?

I currently have a “retainer” agreement set up with a client for a certain number of deliverables over the course of a month and a half.
