Why not?

If you play up you tech skills, they will align you to technology (you don’t want to be here). Advice is to play up you industry knowledge and show strength in one application so that you can do functional consulting.

Accenture cannot guarantee you to be staffed as PM on a project. If PM is what you’re looking for, try to apply to start ups

Just started a new job as an LMHC 7 weeks ago. It’s fee for service. Was told during the interview I’d have a full caseload always and have more stable clients. However, I’ve been getting at least 1 no show/cancel per day and found out that I don’t get paid for it unless the client pays. Now with these no show / late cancels, I have less clients and no new intakes are being put in my schedule even though I’ve alerted the intake dept several times. Is it bad I want to leave already?

2nd Interview for Sr TPM (AMZN L6) role — flow was too easy (recruiter was more intense!). My interview was led by a direct report to the hiring manager I was scheduled to meet with. There was no explanation or heads up of the change. I talked to recruiter just now and won’t be moving forward. I can’t help but feel that the decision had already been made by the hiring manager not to proceed. I definitely appreciate the practice but it definitely has a sting to it.

Hi everyone,
I am in the last stages of an interview process and I really fucked up a 15-min talk with some on the team. I’ve already spoken with two collegues and it went very well, but this one I totally blew because I stuttered, was super nervous and could not answer the questions properly. Considering that I’m probably not a favourite for this one guy, what do you think my chances are for landing the job? Can I do something to “save” the situation?

What to tell in interview when you are already serving notice period

I’m feeling very neurotic about my third interview and need advice:

I was asked to pick a time yesterday, did for the Monday morning slot, and was told it would be added to the calendar. I reached out today asking for any details about what I should have prepared for the call like I did for the second. It’s been a whole day and the interview has not been scheduled and no one has given me the details on the call. I’m worried. I’ve been ghosted before and it is getting harder and harder to deal.
