Is this a real question? Work from home that day or reserve a conference room on another floor - and preferably a room that isn’t surrounded by glass walls.

We don’t say go anymore.

See if there's a wework or Regus or something nearby. You can reserve a room for the hour. I did that once for a video interview

Yeah I just work from home. See if the public library has study rooms you can reserve. My old agency, none of the conference rooms were soundproof so I couldn’t do that. One place I video interviewed specifically told me they wouldn’t care if I just used my phone and went outside to a local park or something, but I personally didn’t want to do that

Book a room. If anyone asks, say you have to call a partner agency you work with to align on something. Bonus is if you actually do call them briefly before your interview in case anyone asks where you are. My last AD was a nightmare so I made sure to always have the receipts to back up my story.

Coming from a big 4 - Can we mention the names of the clients we have worked with over the years when interviewing? I am at a boutique agency now working with some people who came from Accenture and some other consulting companies and I noticed that they will reference their clients by brand name. If it is a past project and you do not give any client sensitive information is it OK to share the names of the brands that you've worked with in your previous role? What's standard?

Any advice on a Bain full time first round interview? I go to a non-target school, and am an engineering major. I’ve tried applying to consulting internships since sophomore year and have never received any interviews from anywhere. I’ve been casing all summer with friends and am super nervous before the interview. Would appreciate anything that could help me stand out or anything to avoid that would get me rejected. I know Bain heavily focuses on the case and not as much the behavioral.

How do you keep from getting discouraged while job hunting? I’ve had 3 final round interviews in the past month and gotten passed over each time.

Rejected by 2 exit ops after on-sites where 2 of 3 recruiters sent a personal message/email saying something like "you seem great/qualified but not the right fit". One said "the HM said you seem really bright and would hire asap if we were looking for a generalist". Another said "this isn't about weakness or lack of experience, just questions on fit". Do recruiters say this to a lot of people or is this genuine? Trying to gauge whether my interview performance is at least solid.

I think I'm mentally checking out of work.
