How many rounds do they normally take for getting hired?
Please let me know
i have an offer for $120K on 1099 and they want me to sign/start next Monday. I just got called for another position i’ve been interviewing for, on final stages of interview. Would it look bad to negotiate start date with $120K offer for following Monday to allow time for finishing out other interviews? (ideally would like options)
Anyone here currently work or have worked for @Gartner as an AE in Large Enterprise? I’ve had a couple of opportunities to interview over the past several years but have passed both times. Pay appears to be pretty solid from what I’ve been told and I’d eventually like to work a smaller book size and sell services instead of SaaS, as these are usually always in demand regardless of economic conditions.
I wonder, why everyone is not applying for FAANG and they’re happy with startups or other companies? (Not talking about who are not able to clear the interviews )
Any Slack SEs here? I’m in conversation with a Slack recruiter for an SE role. Curious how competitive the market is with Microsoft basically offering MS Teams for free and the pandemic starting to wind down. I see most cool startups have Slack and bigger enterprises have been getting swooped up by MS Teams because of cheaper pricing and not needing to buy Zoom. I personally like Slack more but how are current market conditions and how are y’all feeling? Slack Salesforce

I had technical interview yesterday on TCS and he said he will send feedback to Manager/HR and they will call me. How long it will take to get that call.
We are going to be adding a mid-level team to my group soon. Wondering what experience everyone has had finding a team that already works together. Seems like there would be a lot of pros, especially during zoom times.
Hi! I’m interviewing for the Associate Consultant position under Value & Access Strategy consulting practice in the Health Care sector. Does anyone have any tips or advice for the case interviews or would you be able to connect me with any folks that are currently in the position? Really appreciate any help!
Question time! Two part. 1) What dating sites or apps are you on and 2) do you feel like it’s been particularly tough dating in your 30s/40s during COVID, assuming that we probably date (on average) more seriously than 20s peeps? I personally have only been on one date! A zoom one last week.
I have an interview with EXL tomorrow and the tools are SQL, Power BI, NLP. So what questions can I expect around them?

I’m a first-time prospective lateral likely to get an offer shortly. I just received a lateral questionnaire that requests billable hours, rates, fees collected, etc. for the last three years. Forgive my ignorance but is this normal/standard? Do people actually answer these honestly? One of the reasons I’m leaving my firm is there isn’t enough work in my group so of course my hours are low.
Hope it’s ok posting this here, I’m just feeling down.
My best friend since we were about 6 years old is getting married. She asked my twin sister to be her bridesmaid, but not me. She said it was hard choice (i understand, she has other close friends) and she wants to still be apart of her day as a “female usher”.
I’ve never really heard of a female usher. Is this something any of you have seen before? Gonna be honest - I’m feeling a little down that she didn’t ask me but i know it’s limited

What type of stories do MBB consultants who want to continue their career in their company tell in their applications? Im going to apply next year but Im not sure how interesting my application can be.

Can any MBB folk share examples of their general story?

Hi my IBM sharks 👋🏻
Has anyone being on bench received automated mails from RoBoT_System@xxx.mail.ibm.com and been told something like this-
"This is in continuation of the multiple e-mails on the subject, right since you were 45 days away from your last assignment closure date. We expect that you understand your personal responsibility to get assigned to a relevant project within IBM, and also expect that you take steps to achieve the same"
Is this something to be worried about?

Wait, there’s a singles bowl? 👀 But to answer your question, I chose a fintech company.
