If your resume/cv is 2 pages or longer you better be really freaking special. MD/PhD etc.

Should be 1 period. I question your ability to think and communicate key points clearly if you go over.

Thoughts on Cyber/generally working for EY vs Accenture? I got a nice offer from EY which I have to decide on next week, meanwhile Accenture is still trying to schedule my final interview. Part of me just wants to sign with EY and say thanks to Accenture, but that’s probably mostly due to my prejudice to ACN from the shit talking on this app 😂. Can anyone shed some light on the comparative experience between these 2?
