Any advice for an educator looking to pivot into consulting/ed tech/business in general? I went to a top 20 school, teach for america, got my masters, I'm smart, resilient, great at solving problems.... but also have never done anything but teach

Struggling to get hiring managers to take a chance on me....I just submit resumes and cover letters alllll day into ATS blackholes and never hear back. any advice from recruiters, others who have done the pivot, or anyone would be appreciated!

Happy to chat. I was in a similar boat with Ed administration. Considered edtech but ultimately ended up in consulting after getting an MBA which was a game changer.

Network. Ask your friends for referrals to companies you’re interested in or if they know anyone who can refer you. I’m in the same boat. I’ve been applying for multiple jobs since March and not one call. However, someone I know who had 3 years of teaching k-5 (only job out of college, undergrad degree only) was referred to deloitte. Person got the job and now lists their role as a “business analysist” 🤗 case in point, I believe in you and deloitte is hiring literally ANYONE if you “know someone” and get a referral.

Hi from the UK

I recently accepted a new position in a start-up and received the contract today.

The offer letter mentioned 'enhanced' maternity pay but the contract mentions 'statutory'

I'm not planning on using this benefit anytime soon but that if I need to I won't be messed about.

Any of you UK based would be able to let me know the amount of details they have within this section of their contract? I'm keen to go back to ask further details. Not sure what the norm is?

Thank you!

Considering role at KPMG just found out from the offer that I wouldn't get any 401k match until 2 years which wasn't mentioned in interviews just that benefits offer 6% and didn't specify how eligibility works? So if I start I'm not eligible to next year then following year is when the match is paid? That is a lot of time value of money lost. Are other firms more competitive, I'm following up with pending offers from Deloitte and PWC, do they do the same?
