I was on the other end last year... it's nerve racking as a student 😓 Cut them some slack!


Ha. We must've been at the same job fair. A little prep would go a long way.

Hah yeah, it's very stressful to find a job out of school! It's hard to find unique questions for firms when essentially all consulting firms are pretty similar when it comes down to the day to day

The entire process of recruiting needs to be revamped.

Hot take: I think twitter should require all of its users on the platform to be verified prior to use on the platform. This immediately cuts down on the amount of bots that are running rampant on both sides. Also, people couldn’t behind an alias sharing disinformation. They can post what they want but verify the identity in more ways than just an email. With all the fake and alias accounts it might as well be reddit the way it currently is being used.
