Someone I know applied for an SC position with a fake resume. Literally no IT experience. Apparently recruiter bought it and scheduled a second round with a PPMD. I can't accept the fact that our colleagues are getting laid off and yet people like these get an opportunity to join the firm. Any thoughts?

I got laid off and 3 weeks later a SC from HR sends me an email about an opening at the firm. Should I apply???

Just got laid off, what would one year as a Senior Consultant in Strategy, an MBA at a top 15 school, and 6 years prior work experience get me? Any potential to get a strategy/BD position at FAANG?

Ex-Deloitte (and other) consultants who got laid off: If your experience has been in strategy or payments, my firm is still hiring. We have positions open at Director, Manager, SC and juniors levels.

Found out that the C suite got -$80k/piece for bonuses last year. Meanwhile since February we’ve had two rounds of layoffs and no one in the building has had raises in two years. I am so over this.

Hill Holliday in Boston laid off a bunch of people and so far, by my count, it's 13 women 3 men. 4 working moms. 1 woman 6 months pregnant. And most of the creative layoffs were women??

While looking at my company’s benefits guide for next year, my plan choices are between a 6000 deductible w/ no copay til that’s met, or $400 premium (just me, no spouse or dependents). Employer-provided insurance doesn’t seem to be much of an advantage over getting it yourself. Have you all noticed premium hikes? (Yes I get that we’re in a pandemic, but damn).

Hi all! I just wanted to share my experience with the CPA exam and how I prepped in hope that it helps some of you. I just found out that I passed my last exam yesterday and I’m now in the process of applying for licensure. I took REG and passed with a 75 about two years ago now. I also took the other 3 around the same time and failed all of them. I tried to fit them all into a semester but that wasn’t realistic for me. Fast forward a year later after I got out of PA and went into industry cont.
