Any advice on searching for career paths that might be available many months from now? I'm an experimental nuclear physics PhD student graduating in 2 years. I'm trying to understand how to effectively/efficiently search for jobs/careers that would use my skills.

Consulting all I know. Don’t know what else you can do with physics maybe NASA, space x etc

Suggestions for companies etc. are always welcome! But I'm trying to understand how to even ~find~ this information to begin with. So far I know to use Google searching, LinkedIn, and the American Physical Society.

Browse LinkedIn everyday. You are looking for people that have physics degrees and what they did after school. Also look for job roles that you fill you can do via reading the job description and keep track of that. Do internships etc

hey all, i’m 3 years into my career. some decent work produced, some awards (mostly student). after getting laid off last fall and many many applications and emails sent, I’ve decided to spend time and money on a creative PR stunt to get my dream agencies’ attention. I’ve decided I don’t want to settle any longer, and I’m ready to make the jump to the elite. so people that have made it to their dream agencies: when did it happen for you, what made it happen, and was it everything you hoped for?


Coming back to D in October after LOA. During that LOA, I was approached by other firms, and received 3 offers. I do want to stay at D but if they cant match the offers I received, I will leave (offers include 30% increase and a promotion). How should I go about this? Do I contact my coach and let him know that I would like to stay but received different offers and I want to know if Deloitte can match them?

What's Accenture's promotion path/general years of experience to each level?

I’m wondering what Accenture is actually doing. Is it more like a Big 4 Firm, doing theoretical consulting things. Or is it more a IT-Service/ Outsourcing company like Connection, Atos, Bechtle, etc. doing hands on technical things? Where is the main focus on?


I just left the ad world and living a more peaceful life. With that said I’m bored. Any agency gossip? Who’s sleeping with whom? What client did you lose? Etc.


Given all the recent buzz about expected large raises around the big 4, I’d like to level set on the average salary for a 4th/5th year female senior manager in federal tax ( credits & methods group) in the Midwest - Chicago/Minneapolis/Detroit market. Anyone willing to share a range if they work in a similar area of tax / similar level? I recognize all groups vary greatly in salary expectations, so looking for input specific to my area. Current expectations set at 140-160k. Reasonable?
