How are you planning to depart the initiative you’re currently on? Are you already slated to roll off, then who cares. If not, just play this out in your head: you get the role, you tell your M, M says you cannot roll of until xxx, you think oh sh*t I am screwed, you tell the PPMDs on your new initiative that you can’t join until xxx, the PPMD like you a lot, and (1) asks you to split time with current project (2) says he will talk to project PPMD and this could go either way (3) says you should continue on your current project. All 3 will leave you and/or your snapshots disappointed. You can fix this by talking to the M and telling him how important it is for you to roll off / work on a type of initiative. Work together with the M on a roll off date, and both you and M will be happy ever after.

Interviewed for Deloitte S&A Tech Strategy SC and got a verbal offer for Consultant instead. I negotiated the offer to 120K salary and 10K signing bonus. I’m a boomerang with 4 years ERP consulting but this past year I’ve been doing DEI Consulting. Spoke with former colleagues who rejoined Deloitte and got a much higher offer for SC. How do I go back to the recruiter to negotiate further? I suggested that I’d probably sign but need time to think. Now I’d like to go back and request 140k salary.

How do you reflect after a second or third round interview with the team/managers where the conversation is mostly chatty and light, there’s no real technical questions or anything and then you get rejected? With more technically driven conversations I can usually tell if I did a good job answering or not.

Hi guys! I’m hoping to get your insights on this: I have been exploring job opportunities and applied for a position at a big company, i later found out that the hiring manager asked someone about me (someone who I’ve dealt with on a couple projects). That person is not on my list of references. I feel like someone who doesn’t truly know me is being put in a powerful position to determine my “fate”. Their judgement of me could be completely subjective. Is this situation normal?
