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.
A company I applied to 9 years ago followed up with me today to see if I would be interested in the position....

So umm whose’s going to tell him? Also not surprised over half the people in this pic have caught COVID.
Any recommendations on airlines or hotels for a long call due to corona virus ? Or is it too early to tell when will be the rebound?
Earlier, someone posted about being desperate to find something new... I think we should have two posts - one for people employed but miserable, and one for people laid off and searching. Myself?
I don’t have a tribe, but I’d like to have one. This lifestyle, pre-Covid anyway did a number on my social life. Maybe I watch too much tv but how are people finding their girlfriends? 😭 for reference I’m 26!
I was hoping the vaccine would help us get back to more normal, open, and less restricted activities. In some ways it has but since there are so many unvaccinated, is there any other way we’ll be able to move forward from this pandemic? P.S. I’m not trying to start a big argument, I’m genuinely just looking for the light at the end of this tunnel.
How does one show personality in MBB interviews? How much is too much? Humour? Info about personal life? Specifically interested for BCG
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). Would you do the last interview and THEN let them know you don’t want it? Or would you tell them before the last round interview? And would you just say you’re interviewing with some other places more aligned to your end-goals?

What practice areas (if any) would be a natural move for a mid-level commercial real estate/finance associate? I started trying to leave my firm in February and, at the time, was super in-demand. Now, with Covid, commercial real estate is slow & I think I'll be stuck where I am for at least another year if I don't make a practice area shift. Are there any other practice areas where my experience would be valuable?
What sort of swag did you receive when you joined your firm? (Not talking about signing bonus)
Is EYP really a T2 or the salary compression has changed industry opinion about them ? Their M&A practice does exact same work as PwC DDV for a higher salary ! I don’t see any other difference. EY-Parthenon
