Congra! you were laid off by KPMG back in Oct?

They didn’t call them layoffs, but there are a bunch of stories about people being let go for performance reasons without any prior documentation. That’s a layoff by another name.

How do I set myself up for success in the first 30 days of my new EA role? What questions should I be asking? How often should I be meeting with my executive? 2-3 times a week or daily morning touch base calls?

NYC, rising 4th year, V5, M&A. In July, I got the call from the partnership that I should begin to “explore other options.” I always knew when I left, whether on my terms or not, I would exit to finance. It’s been a rough transition. Been pretty discouraged and hit a low point of shame & apathy in August. Just wanted to say that I finally landed my first formal PE and IB interviews this week and am beginning to feel hopeful again! I think it’s all gonna work out.

Hi guys, I have a last interview round with a company coming up, and I already know I don’t want to work there (as I’m interviewing with other places I find more exciting).
