Crushed the interview!

I would be fully inclined to agree with you here. If an employer is apprehensive to extend an offer because of your hair, it isn’t a place you’d want to work.

Problem is, which employer will ever mention your hair? Its too obvious, esp during these times.

For better or worse you should ask employer for feedback on your interview.

I will be able to see their reactions.

For what it’s worth, I’ve only interviewed with my natural hair. Mostly twist outs but that’s just how I wear my hair.

Need some advice. I started prepping around Dec for interviews networked hard. Secured bcg, OW and lek interview. Covid happened, BCG pushed back. Round 2 with ow and lek pushed. I’m currently employed at KPMG. Do I just wait it out or continue networking and looking for opportunities? I’m open to global roles, I am in Canada now. Just heartbreaking and I know I’m not alone.. rotten timing. :(

Hello everyone!
I was interviewed by Accenture and after 4 rounds of interview I was told that I had passed and that they will be sending me the offer letter within 2 days.

Can anyone here from Accenture help me out please?
Thanks.

I don’t have time to look for a different job or to interview. I live alone and I just don’t see a way out of this.
