The disappointment of having to decline a BCG interview because you know timing’s not going to work out. Next time... But the recruiting team is one of the friendliest encountered thus far.

Even though their rejection letter was automated, between MBB, they had the nicest one. I actually felt touched by their rejection LOL

@ Booz1 - No, other timing reasons. Potential start date was not going to work out for me. @BA1 - Not sure how I secured it? Maybe my resume narrative?

Feeling blah. Got an offer and turned it down (I wouldn’t have taken), and told this other company that I got an offer, which resulted in the recruiter speeding up my 2nd interview. After the interview, they said that they’d need another interview and to speak to my refs before going forward, and that if I have an offer, they don’t want me to hold me back from taking it. Mind’s kind of in a jumble after this long process. Thoughts from my fellow fish?

I’ve just started my career 2 years back and I really want to have an international exposure. I don’t want to change my career path and stick to consulting. The only options I have is: 1. Go for MS - which is a big investment 2. Start applying to other countries for job. But I’m not sure on which countries have opportunities since my overall experience is just 2 years. Would love to hear your suggestions.

I expecting to receive an offer letter this afternoon and to walkthrough it with the hiring managers. I will also have a phone call with HR later this week for any additional questions. I gave my expected salary range (pretty wide and aggressive) during the interview process but haven’t talked specifics. I assume negotiations happen with HR instead of the hiring manager? Anyone have any insight? Thank you so much. First time interviewing outside of college

I'm really good at my job, a high performer and have visibility with partners. However, I hate it. I wake up in the mornings feeling angry and resentful. I'm not able to exercise creativity as I'd like to, and feel I'd be happier in a completely different field. I'm scared to leave behind the reputation I've built. Big 4, it's safe/comfortable/addictive and Im addicted to being on cruise control. Anyone else been through the same?
