So I've had multiple interviews at a NY agency for an account role. Spoken with the President but felt I didn't do as well as I could. Maybe a bit long winded in parts of my response. The whole vid..
Got conditional approval for global entry. What can I expect in interview or is there anything I can prepare for in general? I am an Indian Citizen, will that affect my interview?
What did you have to go through to get your current role and how did you prepare for it ? Almost every interview now has an excel case, multiple rounds, different types of testing ?
FISHES I NEED YOU. I have been posting on here about how I’ve struggled to get out of consulting after an 8 month interview process with various final rounds where I did not land a job. NOW I have another opportunity with an ops role at Uber and could really use some feedback from someone who has presented the take home case before. If you have any info about helpful tips you can share please comment or DM and I would be forever grateful and will give back myself one day!
What would you do if you interviewed for two firms, firm a and firm b, and received and accepted an offer from firm a, but shortly thereafter received a better offer from firm b, before officially stating at firm a? Would you try to leverage the offers?
Has anyone applied in the extended round 3 / round 4? What made you decide to do it? Were you always planning on applying in the fall? Do you still expect to?
How long after final round big 4 interview for experienced hires do you usually hear back about an offer or rejection?
I have an interview coming up for Rev Strategy & Ops under Customer Solutions. This will be my 5th interview with Google, after things not working out for two other roles. I am so tired 😓 & with little confidence. The recruiters have all said I have had great feedback but it’s the cases get me. So many weekends have been spent prepping with the same result. Yet the recruiters continue to back me; placing me in the process for more roles. Just feel hopeless & like I’m letting good ppl down 😞
What’s your favorite non-job/law related question to ask on an interview? My is what is your favorite book or what are you currently reading.
Followed up with 2 new potential jobs early this morning. The interviews were last week (went well) and I have yet to hear squat about next steps. I feel like I have PTSD from all this ghosting...
When you go through 6 rounds of interviews but don't pass the final round 😔. Back to the job boards.
Hi 🐟, starting a grad scheme in Management Consulting at Accenture UK. Do you have any insights on standing out? I would like to transfer to their Strategy practice ASAP. On a side note, had a bit of bad luck as I aimed at Strategy Consulting in the UK so rejected BCG Poland for it and failed in a final round to McK UK, but then A did not think I got enough experience for Strategy so I'm looking for a genuine advice on this. I suppose interview wise I'm there.
Have a 3rd interview with an EY partner after the holidays. There won’t be a case and it’s only 30 mins. What do they look for at this point?

Sloan vs. SOM vs. Saïd? Post MBA goal is MBB or impact investing. No money at either. Currently making 54k so the salary boost would be nice, hoping to stay in the US near term but potentially Asia long term.
Have you participated in a medical mission unrelated to your place of employment? If so, which program did you go thru?
Does it make sense to invest in 401k if I just came to US and plan to stay only for next 3-4 years. I have heard there is a 10%penalty with premature withdrawal but once I leave US, wouldn't the low
Before COVID, anyone work at the Pentagon on site? What's the culture like? Just accepted a job there. After COVID, I will be on-site full-time.
“when I think back, from my obviously privileged position, on the texture of daily life during the past four years, all the attention sucked up by this black hole of a president has been its own sort of loss. Every moment spent thinking about Trump is a moment that could have been spent contemplating, creating or appreciating something else. Trump is a narcissistic philistine, and he bent American culture toward him.” I think about this all the time as I spend hours in this bowl.

I feel like Deloitte is getting real slimey. Putting more than the typical number of staff on PIPs, to give themselves the opportunity to fire people for cause in a month or two without severance or anything.
I have to communicate to my client that I’m rolling off a project but they’re out of office for the next week. Will email suffice?

My situation & looking for yall’s opinions: We came into this country as immigrants last year and bought our first house with our savings (House was 410K , put down 100K down payment) in Dallas. But, we don’t have much in way of investments and only have 25K in savings + 15K in both of our checking accounts . We have a toddler and a new born baby. I was making $140K and contributing 7% to my 401K which puts me only at the 8K mark for this year. I’m 34 and felt so stupid after reading a lot of the smart decisions folks are making here. Given my unique situation and desire to play aggressive catchup and be more financially savvy especially for the sake of our kids; my wife (25 y/o) will start working next year (110K) and I got a second job (140K) to essentially double my income . Other than maxing out our 401K, What practical steps should we both start taking immediately to a) play catch up and starting building that wealth ; and b) to reduce our taxable income as much as possible since we’d be at ~ 400K household income next year?
