Left my consulting job after 2.25 years in October 2019 for a venture backed startup. Laid off in March 2020. Joined a VC fund as an intern shorty after, but our fundraise (for our fund) got pushed back.

I was approached about helping grow a small executive recruitment firm focused on private technology companies. I’ll be chief of staff. The company takes $150k/placement + equity. The co expects to hit $1m in rev this year. They also invest in startups.

Should I do it? Is this pigeonholing?


Anyone else have a terrible attitude about PA after being so fired up as an intern?

I feel like I’m not alone when I say I absolutely hate audit with a fiery passion.

is it possible to be fired as an intern


How long is too long to be an intern? I've been interning for about a 1 year and half now at 4 different agencies. All extended me until I'd leave for another agency. I was told bad timing/layoffs


There's a Pwc intern getting fired somewhere


Intern hire set to start Oct (Healthcare/MC)... All the layoff posts have me a bit concerned, and has me considering other options. Am I overreacting?

Anyone have any idea when the hiring freeze might end within AWS ProServ? I’m currently at Amazon and have a TS clearance, PMP & CSM. I come from a Big4 consulting firm with a background in Enterprise Performance. I’ll be honest and say I’m not feeling very safe in my current role with the ongoing layoffs. Instead of leaving, I’d love to go back to my “consulting roots” and join the ProServ team. I’m taking my AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam next weekend. Hoping this freeze is lifted soon.


Hi All,

Wasn't sure if I should post this in Federal, but just got hired to GPS. I received a interim clearance for a public trust. My biggest concern is that I was fired from my first job after college. I was actually very shocked that I got the interim without any questioning.

My question is what does D do if you can't get a trust? Do they fire you?I want to know because I am starting to consider to move, but don't want to move to DC and not have a job...

If offered a great position and 30% bump, seems like a no brainer to jump. But I’m wary of an upcoming recession, and how being a new employee would make me vulnerable to layoffs. What do you think?


Anyone here familiar with the hiring process of KPMG consulting in Van? Had a partner interview on Nov 21, thought the feedback was positive but haven't heard back yet (no rejection/offer). Is it something normal or the interview just didn't go as well as I thought?

It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.

Thanks in advance!

Let's cool it with the layoff threads team. Consulting is up or out and the business model depends on 15-20% churn to work. Unless you're seeing 1 in 5 people quitting expect some firings every year


Was put on PIP coz of last year's util%.
Currently having intermin above expectations in PIP. PIP POC says BPOC(SM I haven't worked with) fired on him for giving a good feedback and asked to set unrealistic expectations w/o - clarity in requirements, supporting docs(tho they have it) and feedback.
I have recorded the calls with PIP POC & coach telling that they can't go against BPOC and give a good feedback despite I meeting all the expectations.

Hi ladies,
Was on a client call today with the rest of my team and call began with introductions and everyone in my team introduced themselves in a roll call manner. I was expecting my name will be called as I did majority of the analysis work & will be asked to introduce myself. But my director went ahead & told that I am a staff member on the call to take notes when clearly I did more than that.I felt rejected, demotivated & cried on mute. Please advice what should I do in this situation.
