*2 mins of rejection call and significant groundwork and preparation for the next one. I also found case prep in particular good for helping with general clarity of thought and planning in my wider life. It's not all for naught.

Thank you EY2.

The processes I went through for all the rejections, helped me prepare for the eventual wins later in the cycle

They called you ??? Mostly it’s an 10 seconds email

McKinsey always calls for rejections afaik at least if you make it to the interview stage

At least you got 2 mins of call/email. I had instances where they will just ghost.

OW ghosted me only McK respects you enough to give you a 2 min rejection call

Trying to exit into FAANG but know it may be a long shot involving a handful of rejections. Meanwhile got approached by a number of recruiters for a) smaller emerging startup <but need to shift geo>, and b) major banks for in-house strategy. I’ll proceed with interviews with a) since it will give me a flavour of tech recruiting, but should I even go through with interview process for b)? Thoughts? Fyi, have not interviewed in 4+ years!

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today.

I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

My wife and I would like to retire at age 50 (or earlier). We’re in our early 30s. We’ve been maxing out 401ks and IRAs for years and started contributing 20k a year into a taxable account to start filling the gap since we can’t access 401k until 55. At what point should we be reducing 401k/IRAs and redirecting to the taxable account? Otherwise our income balloons late in life. Curious how others are managing this.
