Definitely feel you. Most of my activity/success comes from Monday-Thursday, Friday feels dead for a lot of prospects that don't want to fill up their calendar for next week.

For me, Monday is a slog because I'm usually setting up my pipeline for the week.

Not sure if this has been shared on here, but looks like Bonvoy is updating point redemptions to align with cash value of rooms vs seasonal peaks / hotel categories. So for example a Category 8 hotel in peak season is 100k points/night, regardless of nightly rate (let’s say it’s $2,000/night). I’m speculating you’ll see that jump to something like a 1:100 exchange so that the same hotel room in 2022 will be 200k points / night.

I did not do well on my interviews for a consulting firm, but the Partner and recruiter are still giving me an offer and keep trying to sell me on the firm/seem desperate. Salary is beyond the norm, is this a red flag?

Has anyone here been ghosted by a recruiter after a good interview? Please share your experiences.

How much room for negotiation is there on role level when moving to MBB as a lateral? Currently M2 at a boutique founded by ex-MBB partners. We often compete with MBB. Recruiters at each firm have steered me towards joining at Associate (M) /Consultant (BB) level which I believe is common practice for lateral moves. This would likely result in a small pay cut for me, even at A3/C3. All have suggested a 6-12 month window to Manager promotion is possible. Would appreciate some advice, thanks!

Thinking of switching to Accenture. How’s the federal healthcare consulting side? Interested in healthcare analytics.

I know these are tuff times, but I wonder if there’s a good consumer-focused / integrated agency hiring senior creatives (ACD/Sr AD). I’ve been looking for new opportunities on LinkedIn, but all I‘be seen is in the healthcare space... I know that is better than being unemployed, but it’s not my cup tea. Any leads?

I’m currently working at a law firm in San Diego specializing in coastal property rights as a litigation paralegal and legal assistant. We received a minute order from a preliminary injunction hearing. Our client was ordered to post an injunction bond of $2,500. First our client walked to the courthouse to try to pay the bond up front, but they would not accept his money. He tried to call several bond companies, but all said the amount was too small. So how do you post an injunction bond?
