I have roughly 1.5 YOE at a top 10 firm, half in audit half in TAS, no CPA. I’ve applied to and received referrals for pretty much all big 4 and other 10 firms. For the ones who gave me a phone screen or first round interview, I was told they’d like me to have more YOE before considering me. Yet I see folks on here with 1.5 YOE in just audit getting senior roles in TAS at these same firms. I believe I’m personable and decent at interviewing. Any ideas on why I’m not getting any offers?
If a company reached out to set up a phone interview and you replied with times you were available, would you follow up with them if it's been 1.5 work days since you emailed them and they haven't set anything up?
Anyone interviewing for Wharton at Philly? Would like to form a group to practice. DM me if you are interested.
Are thank you notes or emails after an interview still recommended? Or, would they just annoy the interviewer?
Post interview follow-up emails -- looking for advice. I don't want to sound too generic, nor do I want to sound too intrusive. (It's for a smaller PE firm). TIA.
What was that krrrttt sound Cardi B made during her interview with Biden supposed to be? Genuinely curious.
Sunday thoughts - prepped for an upcoming interview all day and felt wracked with self doubt. Then realised that the 5-year-ago (22yo) me would be thrilled to be where I am now. I came from nothing from the middle of nowhere - the land of teen moms and red necks. I had imposter syndrome all throughout undergrad and didn’t believe in myself. If you’ve come a long way, share your story and let’s toast to our successes. This job can be hard, but getting to today hasn’t been easy either
Any MBB fish that went from T2 > industry > MBB? Why did you go back into consulting? I am in a pretty good role right now but besides industry circles, I have no branding. MBB has invited me for interviews. Should I even consider? TC is about the same and I have decent hours. Worth going back for the brand, network, flexibility in/possibility of better exit opps?

How often do companies you interview with reach out to your current firm/team/managers about your performance? (Wondering if I need to take this into account as I start recruiting for tech jobs)
Has anyone interviewed with Microsoft for a Program Manager II role lately? If so any tips or advice, I have mine coming up this week!
Currently have a good WLB with 30-40 hr weeks. Have an MBB interview scheduled. They’d probably give me only 20% bump as I’m already in top band. Is MBB worth the hype that I have to sacrifice my WLB?
Are beards appropriate in big law in the US while interviewing and/or working as an associate? Could it just depend on the person interviewing you? From what I’ve seen in Europe, they’re tolerated even in old school environments. Thank you!
Tips on Facebook Product Marketing interview. Anyone have insights into the case study presentation and the technical interview questions?
Hey all, Been out of work for about a year now, been interviewing and actively since being laid off due to companys budget cut. Was in final / decision rounds before covid and everything has been tbd or rescinded since. Responses have been few and far in between and now the year gap is becoming a concern. Would like to ask if anyone has tips or can point me in the right direction. I come from a management consulting/prod mgt background in tech. Disregard the risk consultant title.
I was placed on PIP due to unavailable projects... and right before my pip period was about the end, I got placed on a project. is it weird I was hoping to get fired and get my severance package?
I rolled off a project 3 months ago. They keep reaching out and asking me to help onboard new teammates to give them historical knowledge (it’s a long-term project). Do I have to keep doing this? Or does it get to a point where I can say I don’t have the time and there must be someone more recent who can help?

I wanted to check what are your thoughts in this bug move, any helpful tips, inputs, resources if you would like to share. Appreciate your time and inputs. Thanks!!

KPMG is providing $1000 non-taxable work from home payment to all employees hired before 3/15. Doesn’t make up for zero bonus but better than nothing. How does this compare to other firms? I heard PwC and EY are doing stuff too?
