This has been said in a lot of different places, but renewed postings are an automatic thing. They have no control over it. It doesn’t sound like the job is closed, it sounds like they need to slow down, so why would they take down the posting? People look way too much into this stuff.

I switched from audit to consulting, and I thought I’d enjoy my job since I’m no longer ticking the box.. doing something that’s more challenging (what people said lol) .. helping the client etc etc but honestly the job seems pretty much the same. I still work on meaningless BS stuff. Is it because I’m not in ‘real’ (strategy) consulting? I do process improvement / CFO advisory. Or are all corporate jobs pretty much the same other than the pay / wlb (which is def. better)
