You got into Deloitte, which is tougher than Harvard, you can do anything :) But for real, it’ll be tough to feel totally comfortable but you should be able to make significant progress in a week

Wow, that’s amazing! Good luck, let us know how it goes

What’s the company name.. maybe someone case you?

I feel this post. I started in internal audit and have long escaped

How long were you in? I’m leaving as an S2 and just feel so behind but it’s pathetic to get paid 75k with 3 YOE

3 yrs, glad to have got outta. Went to acn when I did

Would you mind if i messaged you?

Ginger turmeric tea
