Have an interview with MM PE fund founder for VP ops role. What would you ask him? What would you expect him to ask?
I’m thinking about taking the gmat/applying to grad school over this next year. I am 23 years old and have a little over a year of experience in operations at a investment bank. Is it worth it/ what type of positions would I be able to get post-grad?
Looking for some interview advice.
What do you usually answer to the question "Why are you looking for a job switch?" when you are actually moving between similar roles/firms?
For instance, from one of the Big4s to another, or between a Big4 firm to Accenture/Infosys etc.
Looking for inputs specifically from Management Consultants. :)

Just interviewed for this job that sounds superficially good but I think will take me back to the work I did 10 years ago but will pay my target salary and will have a fancy title (VP). I don't really want to do this but I need a job, have run out of UI and don't want to deplete my savings to nothing waiting for the perfect job.
If offered, should I take it and continue looking or will it look bad? Changed jobs within 1 year once already. At least this job would be spinnable for what I want.
Any advice for preparing a first interview with a hiring manager? AD role in big pharma. I bypassed HR as I vaguely worked with the hiring manager recently. 30min meeting.
For those that have left PA for Fin. Analyst or non-accounting role, how did you land the interview? Worth considering external recruiter?
For those in the analyst Development Program, how long did it take to hear a decision after assessment day? I have an offer with another consulting firm that I need to accept or decline by 2/18, but Accenture is my top choice and final round interview is 2/11.
I've shared this with my recruiter, but curious to know other people's experiences.
Thanks in advance!

I have applied to multiple consulting positions and haven’t heard anything back from any of them (haven’t even received a rejection email).

In a meeting we a client, we were looking at a stock image of a smiling Black man holding a baseball bat while wearing a hoodie. The client comments that it’s the wrong way to hold a bat. Cool. But, then follows up and says, “Also, he just looks aggressive. Like, this person would definitely attack me and my family.” I was shocked. But, apparently, I was the only one. Because everyone else on the call laughed. They were all white except for my partner who is Mexican. But, he still chuckled.
