Any consulting firms hiring at the analyst level right now? Profile is a business technology analyst, semi target school, < 1 year of experience. Experience primarily with technology transformations, excited about the work and want to stay in the tech consulting space. Unfortunately impacted by COVID related layoffs.....
Damn. A gunman fired at Republican members of Congress. I don't care what your political stance is, things should never get violent.
Just got fired. Not surprised and kind of relieved but ego is bruised. Anyone got any stories of when they got fired/laid off and it turned out for the better?
When someone gets fired/laid off but they keep their previous title/agency on LinkedIn, does anyone ever tell them to change it?
Anyone else out there concerned that the market is going to go bear and we’ll be back to the days of endless layoffs and starving for projects?
How do our firms view consultants and managers getting pregnant or just having young children in general? Is it a death sentence for future staffing opportunities? Conversely, would it mitigate the risk of layoff due to covid considering the optics / laws around woman’s pregnancy rights in the workplace? Honestly just curious.

Are HH layoffs this week?
Heard through the grapevine. Bunch of analysts got fired for getting too drunk at DU and passed out in the bushes. Can anyone confirm or deny?
You thought the last rounds of layoffs were bad? With continued political instability / uncertainty under Drumpf, companies will stop or slow spending on consulting and a bunch of us will get fired...
Been furloughed for a month. Sucks, but silver-lining is that I'm building a game with my girlfriend. If you're furloughed / laid off, what're you doing w your newfound free time?
Trying to get to new WiFi and I live in a remote location in upstate NY. Any recommendations on what I need mbps wise in order to work from home efficiently? I do not want my zoom or teams video calls to lag and I download large files daily. Thanks!
It is just me or do other people feel like they do better in interviews when they don’t give a crap about it? I had an interview for a head of strategy position and because I thought it was such a reach position, I didn’t prep that much, and I killed the interview. Not sure if I got it, but we’ll see.
Met with a CCO for a role on a notoriously “challenging” account. Thirty minute Zoom, nothing in-depth. A few days later the recruiter emails like “Great news. We’ve talked to many people but they’d like to make an offer to you!” I’m thinking to myself, it was a 30 minute call, I’ve never met my direct manager, potential partner(s), etc...So these guys are just desperate to fill this role, right?

Would appreciate thoughts on when to pay of student loans. Have about 40k left @ 4.5% (refinanced twice). I should be able to pay them off in one lump sum in a few months with personal savings. I’m currently paying the minimum, while saving aggressively in HYSA account , contributing to 401k to employer match, and contributing to Roth IRA. Does it make sense to just knock them out or should I increase investments focus? I know there’s likely not a “right” answer but what would you do?
What are some common exits out of a PE associate role (buyout focused), excluding MBA and lateraling for promotion? Interested to hear what others have done after their associate stint.
I just read this crazy article about how poorly ad agencies treat people who are struggling with mental illness and other health issues. The person’s boss called them during minor surgery several times (which they knew they were having), to ask about budget pacing. Link to the article here: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/surviving-big-agency-mental-health-story-jonathan-jono-decosta What can we do to stop such toxic behaviors? Why does health, both physical and mental, not matter to these ad agencies? I’m curious if anyone else has similar tales. What agency do you think this was at?

Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing. *Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb
