The likelihood of a phone interview is almost guaranteed. (Worth prepping for). Beyond that is not guaranteed, but will depend on when your resume is put in front of the hiring managers (as in team that’s hiring you, not HR) & that initial phone screen Source: Been in this situation for McKinsey Solutions & other companies

Is the likelihood of an interview high/almost guaranteed? I’m wondering if I should start prepping now or wait until I formally hear from them. Thanks so much!

I’m a late 40’s, 3rd year Partner in Big4 who joined as a DEMD after 2 decades in industry. I’m weighing an offer to join another Firm - it’s a straight comp play for 30% higher Comp for a similar role. I realize that the BS is mostly the same at all B4, so I don’t think for a second the grass is greener. But the comp is nice, and I’m not vested enough to lose much money. Did anyone here make a similar jump to another Firm, and in the end, was it a genius move, or did you come to regret it?

I am struggling with the fact that I have 13 years of HR experience in one capacity or another, along with a bachelors degree and my PHR designation yet companies say “I’m not qualified or they ghost me when I apply for HR openings. I am experienced in all aspects of HR. How are people with little to no experience coming right out of college obtaining higher level roles than I have currently? It makes my passion for the field just go away.

I’m sorry but if after 2-3 interviews, you can’t determine whether a candidate should be extended an offer, re-think your hiring practices. No way should anyone have to meet so many people and asked the same questions, for a job where you’re interviewing for a VP/Director role, or technical role.

Been considering getting out of Big4 consulting for a while now. Recently started interviewing and got an offer out of the blue. Rank is somewhat similar, but pay is pretty much same as now, except for one time RSU quantity that vests over 3 years.

Looking to crowdsource my decision based on inputs from others who've jumped recently v/s those who have stayed put temporarily. Penny for your thoughts 🥺 Contd below
