I’m convinced that while practice does help, case studies are fundamentally designed to evaluate your critical thinking skills and IQ — which are immutable qualities. No matter how many mock cases I do, I can’t seem to figure out how they work and therefore can’t crack any interviews (10+ tries). I don’t think I’m as smart as I once thought 😕😕
I was interviewing for McKinsey in the defense and security industry (clearance needed) and thought I did absolutely great on the first business case. The second, however, was with a principal that had very different political views from my own (I’d done some research on her LinkedIn). The business case felt different from any others that I had studied and felt like an attempt to get political without directly doing so. I was quickly rejected following the 2nd interview. Should I try reapplying?
Had a project interview yesterday and it was pretty mediocre. One of the managers really liked me, the other seemed a little skeptic and wanted work samples. I’ve been pretty anxious since and cont

Hello. I have an interview for a company that doesn’t offer maternity leave for employees under a year. I happen to be 5 months pregnant. My job now gives 18 weeks total but this new job is more pay, something I’d be much more passionate about and I’d actually get RSUs for the first time. Have you guys negotiated maternity leave? Have you been pregnant looking for work? When do you tell your employer?

How would you go about telling a company you don’t want to do anymore interviews? I was originally told probably two or three, then “one last one”, and now “potentially two more”. In each interview, they talk like I have the role and keep asking how much notice I would need to give as if they’re in a rush to get me in, but then schedule another round of interviews. Honestly the interviews seem more like meet and greets. Cont.

I recently began to feel Covid-19 symptoms and decided to get tested (waiting for results). My husband took the rapid and tested positive. Meet the Teacher is Monday and school starts for my students on Tuesday. If I have to quarantine, I have no idea how this will work. Will a substitute meet my parents and review the routines and procedures? Has anyone experienced missing the first week or two with your class? I need advice.

Resume gap: My position will be abruptly end in December (was informed this week). However, I won't be interview ready in the next 2 weeks. So how bad does a gap of 1-2 months appear to tech recruiters? Common knowledge is it is a disadvantage to the candidate from a salary negotiation process. I'm also told hiring decisions at places like AWS & GCP take time and it might be a few months before an offer letter is received.
Why is US healthcare so expensive?
Is 75K plus 5K sign on and 5-10% bonus based on performance a good salary for a financial analyst (fp&a) role in MCOL (Think Dallas, Portland, Austin). I have 2 YOE and CPA. TYIA
Hello, I got an offer from a different firm but they only offered me $15k + more than my current base salary with no signing bonus. I don’t know if I want to accept it, don’t think the increase is that much. I am going to ask for $15k but also check with my current employer if they can match. I don’t hate my current employer and will probably leave for a industry job next year so not sure what to at this moment.
The world population is nearing 8 billion! How do you feel about humans overpopulating mother earth and depleting resources and destroying natural habitats? And why are those of us who choose not to have kids still the black sheep in today’s overpopulated world? Are people just not getting the memo? Is denial at play here or under-education? Or perhaps cultural norms that are outdated, but still very influential?
Got an offer for 30% increase in pay from Freddie, haven’t seen much online about the culture there though. Can anyone give me an idea of how it is? Also HR at Freddie was slow and disorganized which put a bad taste in my mouth so I’m a bit wary but the offer was amazing.
Few recruiters reached out to me and have been offering a hefty salary. Similar situation last year was different. I.e I see salary difference of 30 to 40% in base salary range. I am too excited to take the offer’s, but also scared that is it just momentarily and when market stabilizes they would fire folks???? The companies reaching out last year and this year are different ; none of them are big tech companies.
