Why?

That is not going to play out well in this economic environment. Humanities masters are useless. Humanities PhDs take too long. You can get a Masters in Economics and go work as an Economist at a bank or get a PhD in Econ and teach.

As someone with both a humanities masters and an MBA, i can confirm this. Understanding is that grad programs in Econ (Ph.D.) are extremely competitive though. You could go back to school and become a psychologist or something, but that's a tough road to hoe and don't think that pays very well

I just started with a company as an HR Generalist. Within the 3 weeks of being there, my boss’s boss left, and today I found out my boss gave notice. HR is not valued at the company and it’s disheartening to know I was hired into a mess. I am now actively looking but how do I explain to other employers why I am actively looking and what do I put on my resume? I have never had to deal with this before.

Hi! Would like to get some perspectives on the Walmart and Amazon offers that I just received. Slightly more interested in Amazon Fashion's work but it's offered at $80K less than Walmart...

A few questions here:
1) Is the Amazon brand better than Walmart that's worth $80K in TC?
2) Are Strategy roles better perceived than Marketing roles and will have higher long-term pay potential? (I went to business school where almost everybody wants to do Strategy...)
3) Is Amazon culture very concerning?

I am a person of color in big 4 consulting. Somehow every time (approx 6 occasions) they give me a “mentor” or “buddy” or manager on a project it is someone of my race. I am assuming it might be my firm’s diversity focused way of trying to help me with opportunities and networking. However, I feel handicapped from being exposed to a wider range of colleagues beyond my race as I already have so many of those formal connections I have to cater to.

How should I think about this?
