So how hard is this fit call? Is this last part of getting accepted? Any tips. ?

A fit call is like every other fit call. It makes sure you aren’t bullshitting your resume and can speak like an adult.
It’s step 2 of about 20. Step 1 is getting the fit call.

Now I’m realizing, do you mean a fit call with the hiring manager for a specific role/team, and that you’ve already had on sites and been HC approved?
Or is this the recruiter fit call - the very first time you’re talking to someone?

HC = hiring committee. Did you pass that?

Clarification. Yes, I did the onsite. I passed that. I got head count.

Now fit call with that specific manager

Thanks for clarifying. It's an opportunity to be open and find out what the team is going and alinging them with your objectives.

I had the call with the director of my org and despite my experience with one headline project the team was running, I was more excited about a more 'on the fringes' type project and expressed my interest to do that. It was well received. You don't have to do the second part - cos that just me, I accepted the offer only cos I wanted to pivot my career in a very specific direction.

How do you guys rationalize the kind of work you do/company you work for based on public perception? For example, I’m about to start work at Deloitte which I’m proud of myself for achieving but also know the kind of reputation it has especially in this town as the home of too many obnoxious Navy Yard frat bros. When I tell people that’s where I got a job they mostly go “…oh”. I feel stuck between being proud of the work I do but also feeling the need to defend my decision.

We live 3 hours from family and, for the most part, no one will come to our house to see our kids. We go see family about ever 5-6 weeks, and always invite people to our home to stay for the weekend but they tell us it’s “too far.” We are getting frustrated with always being the ones to make the effort and our family is always complaining that they don’t get to see their granddaughter. Are we wrong to think that this should be a two way street? Does anyone else face this?

Got an offer for non technical PGM. The recruiter says they have been back and forth with comp committee the last 4 business days negotiating the offer on my behalf. Today is the first time he revealed the numbers and said it’s the “final offer” and if I want a higher base they would restructure it and take away from equity. When the recruiter says it’s final, is it really final? Or should I be asking for more?
