What role are you thinking of? What skills do you have?

If you can, try to get a referral. Applying cold is very difficult

OP what skills do you have?

I have a wide range of skills..I'm predominantly into object oriented peogramming..my skills include java, java ee, spring.

I also know angular, node, react,bootstrap , vue.

I also have a PMP

I am a front end and back end developer. I'm a "FULL STACK DEVELOPER". I'm finding it incredibly hard just to land a call.

Well it seems like you have the necessary skills. Where’d you go to school? What major?

Now here are the long list of factors that don't work in my favor

1) I'm 32 years
2) immigrant
3) on h1b waiting for green card
4) bachelors in computer science...No masters

But I am pretty sure there are ppl at Google who fall in above category..

Yes..PMP is pretty much useless.., but formy age maybe adds a little value

Wait till you get your green card. But start practicing for the programming interviews

I've actually turned down both, I'm in a very specific group outside of tech though, real estate side

Wow M2 you’re so cool

OP - What role are you targeting? For Google, maybe consider something in gTech as a starting point if you're not getting formal dev interviews.

Question for paid search experts who have big agency experienc (e.g. big 4, dentsu, etc.) - is it considered standard to use SKAG instead of STAG, and use alpha/beta structures?...even with the changes Google has made to phrase and exact match? The various agencies I've worked at (small agencies) never use that method.

If you were interviewing someone from a small agency and they said they didn't use those types of account structures, would you think they were inexperienced?

Why does it take so much time to approve exit for employees serving notice period. During this period the employees are pressurized and treated really bad. Is this very common in KPMG.

After all the employees should be treated fair enough even in the notice period. What can be done to serve notice in a better way, Talking behalf of all

Serious question: I’ve worked in MBB, Big 4 and tier 2, and the number one reason I’ve heard for younger (less than 5 YoE) talent leaving is that they are “not doing strategy work.” It’s also the top request from younger staffers to do on every engagement team I’ve led. The question: Are there any consulting firms really letting new talent do this? Or is this the top delusion of new MBAs entering the consulting world?
