What are good questions to ask recruiters right now? Is it ok to ask how a company did during the pandemic on a job interview?

Definitely. How they handled wfh, how they plan on remote work in the future, did they win new business, etc. whatever’s important to you, ask.

Agreed but to me, how they handled it is far more telling than how their business did. I want to know what their policies were, how they supported their employees, etc etc.

Interviewing for Strategy&, specifically for the Cloud and Digital Transformation group under tech Strategy as a senior associate. I Would like to know what would make a candidate standout here.

Coming from a traditional consulting background, would applying R2 instead of R1, quality of app held constant, make a meaningful difference? Heard the advice to apply only as soon as your app is ready, but does the round make more of a difference if your work experience is undifferentiated? Tyia :)

I appreciate any kind of guidance.

After a few long interview processes, I've learned that prior CPG experience is highly valued when entering any CPG industry (even in low- to mid-level roles).

Alternatively, would love to be able to "spin" my resume to help fill in the gaps that this lack of experience leaves.
