I interviewed for a Risk Assurance associate position at PwC a few weeks ago and they offered me the position with a Fall 2021 start date 🥰😍 I can’t even begin to explain how excited and happy I am. I worked so hard to get the offer into my dream firm. 🤲🏽🥺

Any advice for a 3rd year risk assurance associate looking to break into a consulting role? I feel like I don’t quite have the tech experience (knowledge of SQL, Java, etc. ) and i don’t quite have the accounting knowledge being that we’re in IT. . Anyone make the switch ? What advice would you give ? Anything I should try to learn now or any transferable skills you leveraged? Anything would help!

I don’t mean to be vague but does anyone have experience or insights on if things are “better” as a black person working as a consultant or in house somewhere rather than in an agency? Any POV is helpful. For background I currently work at Ogilvy in a pretty junior role and I see NO ONE that looks like me. Peers or at the top aside from those in HR/diversity and in addition to dealing with the day to day reality of being a POC in corporate America, its hard to visualize a path to “the top”.

Are they hiring at EY right now? Had a recruiter interview 2 weeks ago for a senior consultant position in the Supply Chain team. No response about the next steps yet. The recruiter tells me that the hiring managers are not responding. Baackground: I was referred more than a month ago. The recruiter reached out to me 4 weeks after submission. Very positive response from recruiter but no movement even after 2 weeks. Is this normal? Or is the impending economic slowdown slowed down recruiting?

I currently work in a legal adjacent job bc I got fired and was wondering if judicial clerkship would be a way to help employers overlook that. Any former trial clerks here? Was it beneficial?

I deal with a team that I ask for help to show me how to do something after requesting a task to be done. I am happy to work on the task and learn. All they do is make sure to cover their butt by making an e-mail trail showing the bare minimum of information and expect me to get a task done. After, I tell them I need you to show me how to get the task done and shadow me in order for me to get the task done 15-20min.

I feel like I am drowning daily.
