I posted a while back about building an IRL meet up app that is centered around in-person activity dates and meet ups. The app is called Venty (www.helloventy.com) .Users earn points from engaging in social activities through the app and points can be redeemed for prizes. We are doing a soft launch next month and would love your help by following our IG page:“ Helloventy “ and signing up for the launch list on the website so you can test the app before it launches and give us feedback. Please and thanks 🐠 fam.

Feel like I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about splitting chores recently / managing house work and I want to make a plug for an app I found recently called Sweepy!

Had an interview with FB this week. Recruiter said they were going to schedule time with me to prep for the next round (which involved a case interview with a team member). Had the recruiter interview Monday morning and still haven't received any follow up. Is this normal considering recruiter told me on the call that I'd made it to the next round? What is the best way to respond? I was thinking about calling to leave a follow up message. Is this too much?
I recently moved from a Tier 1 specialised boutique to a large U.S. BB and I just loath every single minute of my life now. Would it look weird if I quitted (been 2 months) and came back to the boutique ? I trust they would take me back but wonder about the messaging (e.g. I would look like a quitter who does not know what they want for themselves?)

Do you guys at BCG think it would be a smart decision to make a lateral move to PL from Big 4? Have great network and support at current company.

Question for Asian ladies: how old were you when you felt you “had it figured out” — in terms of work, relationships, etc? Asian M here, basically was an idiot until I hit 29-30.
