What kept you going when you were trying to break into consulting? I’ve networked a ton and gotten referrals. However it hasn’t translated to interview or recruiters ghost me after the initial screening call saying “they will follow up”. It’s honestly been a very painful process and idk what I’m doing wrong.

Worth using a recruiter? Pros and cons? I'm trying to switch from being a general litigator to a specialize a bit. Curious if it would be beneficial to use a recruiter in this situation since they'll need to sell me a bit. Or is it just cost prohibitive at this point and I'd have a better chance applying on my own.

Giuliani says no Mueller interview, live or written. Their old excuse was that in a live interview Trump would be just unable not to lie. But if they won’t even *write* answers...
“What’s your process,” I had never really thought about how to articulate that … but I believe not having a good answer on an interview lost me a good job. Now I’ve heard that some copywriters have branded decks or Google slides to represent their process. Thoughts?

Gar nichts los in DE? 🧐 Wollte mich mal mit anderen Consultants über Gehälter unterhalten. In welchem Feld und welcher Karrierestufe seid Ihr unterwegs, und wie hoch ist euer (Ziel-)Gehalt? Ich habe 5 Jahre Berufserfahrung und komme mit Bonus bei ca. 70.000€ realistisch raus. Kann nicht einschätzen ob das gut oder schlecht ist. Auf dem Papier könnte es mehr sein, aber Wunsch und Wirklichkeit passen da nicht so 🥲 Wie sieht es bei euch aus?

DoorDash recruiter reached out for a role, proceeded to send me the analytical exercise a few days later. Prior to her sending me the exercise I realized I don’t want to go forward with the interview process as I’m too slammed with work at the moment. Can I just tell her that I no longer want to move forward? Will there be negative consequences?
What’s the rule set on doing cases during the interview process on a work computer? E.g. a case requiring me to do some excel modeling and then a deck on it to present. Is this problematic if I create this from my work laptop and send it to them from my work laptop?
For those who have kids or have decided you want to start having kids, how did you know you were ready to start trying? I’m turning 31 and my husband and I have been married for 8 months. I’ve always wanted to have kids eventually, but I’m having a hard time coming to terms with how much life will change and the sacrifices that have to be made. Maybe it’s because social media has made me acutely aware of the the mom struggle. If anyone has helpful advice to push past the fear, please share!

What "hard truths" or insights has the coronavirus crisis revealed about your own firm and our larger industry? Let's be pretty open and honest here.
I've become really jaded about consulting. I find all so often you need to tell the client what they want to hear to keep their business and I feel like so much of the what I recommend doesn't actually get implemented. I'm looking to make a career switch so I can both create and execute on my strategies. A product management path seems very promising for this. Does anyone who switched from consulting to product management have any recommendations of h helpful PM books, courses, or programs?
Moving to NYC next year, and my SO is based in Seattle. He is very keen to spend more time with me in NYC, even suggesting living there while remote working is still a thing.
