So I'm super bummed cuz I thought I did amazing in my interview with KPMG but it seems like I got ghosted... I sent a thank you note, and a couple days later I sent a follow up email asking where my application was at in the process (already had a few interviews) and nothing. I was really hoping to get the job because I want to leave my job rn and this position seemed to be a perfect fit for me so it sucks that it seems like I didn't get it...

You might not be ghosted yet. Internal HR isn't good at much, especially not with sending updates when they don't have information. They may still be waiting on something and are just failing to communicate that. They are not incentivized to care about doing this and therefore do not (exceptions for good people exist)

Oh, this is about to get very interesting. KPMG2 did that person worked at Oracle? 👀👀

Took 7 months and 9 interviews, with multiple follow-ups for me to get hired. Until they’ve told you “no”, assume it’s “yes”.

Wow that's crazy!!! I guess I'll take your optimism at face value heh

Tell them you have another offer and need to accept within 5 days. If they still don’t make an offer then you didn’t make the cut

Sure

Which group you interviewed for?

Digital Transformation...? The recruiter said it's a new team coming to Canada (or something like that)

Pick up the phone and call them…

I'm just worried I'd piss them off or something...

Sometimes they take a while. I wouldn't beat myself up

I just hope that's the case... I just wish they gave some sort of update even after I sent a follow-up instead of dealing with this uncertainty...

But why do you want to move to KPMG...

Oh! How did you go about doing that? I was told I cannot do that... And if I were to it would be extremely hard (I'm from NetSuite in the Canada branch)

Cleared 3 rounds with HashedIn for Senior Manager role. 15 years of experience and holding multiple offers (highest CTC offered - 38 LPA, 34 fixed). HashedIn is saying 28 fixed is the max they can offer. I was under the impression that HashedIn is a pay master and that they could easily go beyond 38 LPA. Is that really the case ?

He’s on track to graduate in 4 years so this really is not great for any of the college kids in a similar boat. Just trying to help him navigate - he’d never ask for help or a favor.

I feel very conflicted about whether to jump into an EM consulting role from industry. My husband is older, has switched jobs to a role that pays significantly less to his previous one pre-lay offs. We have 1 baby and I think I want a second. We really need this jump in salary to make this work. Irrationally I’m afraid that by not seeing my daughter Mon-Thurs for a few years it will damage our relationship and we won’t be close. Can people give me some real perspective?

Hello everyone! New fish here in this fishbowl. I have a question concerning empowering and developing the team.

Is it possible to empower the team and delegate certain tasks and then risk to be perceived as “irrelevant” to the superiors (because the team is doing the legwork)? Is this an unfounded fear? Is it a real risk? And if it is a real risk, how can I manage it?
