I’ve spent the past 4 years in Big 4, I really value my time in Big 4 and credit my firm for where I am right now interviewing with you. It’s been really cool learning how all of my clients operate from both and internal and external perspective. But looking forward into the future, I know I do not want to be in audit. I can tell you with certainty that I was not born to be an auditor forever and audit is not where I see my long term career going. To me, audit is very monotonous and repetitive. My clients differ in industry but generally the procedures and memos are the same and I find myself carrying test works and memos from one client to the next. to be honest I’ve always viewed audit as a tick-box exercise in order to meet regulatory standards. but this opportunity at [company] really stood out to me because [reasons 1, 2, and 3].

like

My “reasons 1, 2, and 3,” are usually:

1. Super hands on role
2. Opportunity to learn and grow with the company
3. I resonate with the company’s mission/values because [x, y, and z]

like

Of course I am coming from audit so you should be able to tailor my response if you are in another practice.

I jumped on a call with a candidate to debrief from his interview results I asked him how felt it went and if he enjoyed the interviews. After he shared with me his feedback I started to highlight the areas where he did poor and where he did great. But in the middle of it he cut me off and said, can we just address the elephant in the room, did I pass it or not?. His approach threw me off but I wanted to share with him but it seems like his disregard everything I had said. Anyone experienced it?

Hi guys, Any tips for interviewing at Microsoft for Sr. Operations program manager role? Thanks in advance!

After an interview this morning, I sent out what was SUPPOSED to be a thank you email. I really should have stepped away from my desk and put my full attention towards it, but instead I rushed through it and am now realizing I didn't even THANK HIM FOR HIS TIME OR THE OPPORTUNITY! Ugh.
