*ADVICE/HELP*
Fresh graduate, 3.84 GPA, B.A. in Economics with two minors. No internship experience, and worked at a cafe for 3 years as a manager. Did some self initiated financial projects with the company in Excel, and I’m currently working at a branch bank. I want to get out ASAP, and would appreciate any help for me to get my foot into consulting. I’m talking tier 3 obviously. Is there any chance at all before the next recruitment cycle comes?

Hi everybody,

Looking for some insight/curious to hear how others would handle this situation:

I have an offer I want to accept; I was trying to negotiate for a signing bonus… but they’re not budging.

The issue is, the start date is in a month and I’m up for a promotion in a week at my current company. I would like to leave before I get promoted, I think it would be pretty low of me to accept and promptly quit.

Not the new employer’s problem? Or can/should I try to leverage this?

I’m a first-year corporate associate planning on leaving in Sept. for a 2-year MBA. The idea when I first registered for the MBA was obviously to move away from BigLaw, but I’m not opposed to coming back to the firm.

How do I go about breaking the news that I’m leaving in a way that doesn’t burn bridges or make partners upset? I’m still a few months out so idk if it makes sense to tell them now. But I also already know for certain that I’m leaving, so I’m worried that sitting on it is worse.

Quitting before finalizing offers?

I’m at post onsite and negotiation stage at a couple places but it may take another month or 2 due to either hiring freezes or general slow processes.

I want to quit now to go on vacations that I held off during prep. Does it make much difference when I negotiate offers? Like if my upcoming unvested RSU would be (partially) matched, and they find out I quit somehow, is it no longer matched? Other potential snags?

Already burned most of my PTO interviewing.
