My life's first interview after graduation in HR is for the Recruiter post in " Concentrix". I am a bit nervous because I don't wanna miss this opportunity so please my fellow seniors give me some tips and advice for my first interview. I will really appreciate that. Thank you
Any babe willing to chat or refer me to MBB, Big4 for strategy consulting? I'm trying to take off my career but cant do without MBA. Got 2YOE in strategy, 2YOE tech cons. & On-going Tech + Strategy
Any insight on getting MBA from mendoza as far as prospects for transitioning into a post-mba strategy consulting role? It’s ranked outside the top 15 but from research seems like it still sends plenty of grads to top consulting firms (not MBB)
Applying to T15 in R2. Currently have a 700 GMAT (43Q, 41V) after taking once. Even if I raise my quant to 47, which would be impressive for me, I’ll still be at a 700 (possibly 710). 3.6 undergrad GPA. Worth retaking? Or just focus on the rest of my applications?
I’m casually interviewing, and I finished the final round for a smaller, lesser known firm recently. They want another follow up call to gauge interest. How do I tell them I’m just wanted interview practice and won’t probably even take their offer 😂. I feel bad.
Starting MBB soon and would appreciate any recommendations on preparing myself for success on my first day? I’ve got a number of weeks until I start and will take some time off, but I’d also like to stay sharp and come in feeling confident. Any suggestions are welcome.
Anyone ever recruited for / work at iconiq growth? Thoughts on their culture? Exit opps? What can I expect in the interview process? ICONIQ Capital
Is MBB (mostly thinking about McKinsey) really that bad in terms of WLB? I feel like people tend to exaggerate things sometimes - i was told i'd be working approximately 65h at Deloitte in Tech Strategy and honestly that barely ever happened. I wasn't considering switching since I love my job and my team, but many people are telling me I shouldn't "waste" my potential at Deloitte (whatever that means...). They kind of got to me and now i'm looking for more info about the culture/work at MBB.
I have 2 YOE at a tier 2 consulting firm and just graduated top of class with an MS at a target school. How do I go about networking/getting a referral to transfer over to MBB?
Have an interview for a role with EY's human capital consulting group tomorrow. Any opinions on the practice?
Interviewing for jobs honestly sometimes feel like the hunger games where only one person survives the fight
Wasted 2 years and good health working at Deloitte, never getting strategy work. Now I'm too burned out to do MBB and will never be able to break into strategy. Fml 😤
Any PAs who went for fed jobs? I'm curious about GS13 level, what experience time in PA is needed for that? Also, any interview tips?
Has anyone ever tried negotiating for more vacation rather than a higher salary? I'm applying and interviewing for jobs right now. Some firms have unlimited PTO while others only give a few weeks. Personally, I'm much more interested in getting an additional week of vacation and would rather negotiate for that but usually only hear of people negotiating for salary. Has anyone had experience with this?
Any suggestions for escaping the ops life? Just took level 3 and have been doing interview prep... unsure how long I should look internally before looking outside of the nest
For a Company the size of 500 employees, what are your recommended corporate communication policies for announcing furloughs or layoffs?
Sorry if this isn’t the right bowl! I was fired from my last job due to performance issues. I filed for unemployment and was approved, however my former employer filed an appeal. I’m not even sure what they’re protesting but it’s making me really nervous. What should I do now?
What exactly is “Client Partnership” role? The description sounds strategic and fancy but I have a hunch it’s more like running after clients to beg for their time.

What industries are doing well right now and reps are actually enjoying their day to day? My current role has sucked the life out of me while trying survive Covid and the burnout has reached a new level. I’m actively applying but want to find a good fit I can grow with. Not a fan of company hopping.
Just got an email from a recruiter with job positions targeted at mgmt consultants. Know there have been a lot of layoffs lately so thought I'd pass these along (see below for links).

XPost: How do you appease the client when they call and ask when their tax returns are done and they want them done now but they are further down the queue of returns because they submitted their PBCs later than other clients who submitted their source docs on time?
Partner community, it’s interesting to see so much opacity and variation around partner comp...for the benefit of the community at large, do you mind sharing;￼ (1) company, (2) Years as Partner / Equivalent, (3) cash comp (base + bonus) and (4) % Commission? Fully understand that “commission” is not the standard by any means but if you could express your comp beyond cash as % of revenue sold, I think we can cut through the noise a bit. TIA!

I’m trying to fix my resume, so I can be fully prepared if more layoffs happen at ACN. I really want to include client names, rather than a long description. I know about the NDAs, but what if we’re not disclosing confidential info and the partnership is public? What do you guys suggest? I really want my resume to be noticed.
Accenture digital fish. What percentage was your bonus? I found out my bonus numbers but I had left in October. I was a level 9 and got 4%
How hard should you actually work in consulting? Obviously we have utilization requirements so we work long hours but I’m tired of giving 100% of my brain power. Is there any benefit of working harder? IMO there’s an incentive to work slower
