Wonder if anyone can offer advice on which cert to pursue next? I obtained my CompTIA Security+ last year and wondering if I should go for the CySA+ or Pentest+ next. I also have my AWS CCP and will be sitting for the Solutions Architect soon as well. Currently not doing security stuff at work but would love to keep my skills going. I was hoping one of these next certs will help me finally break into a security role and love the idea of pentesting but not sure if the CySA+ is more beneficial.
it’s four years into work from home.. …. your boss still doesn’t wear headphones or mute themselves on calls … . … you’re trying to present your work….. another day, another battle with what you said two seconds ago

Anyone interested in a Manager, External Reporting role with a growing technology company (recent IPO) in Manhattan? $125k + bonus with WFH flexibility. If so, DM me. Interviews will be conducted via Zoom.
How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?
Do you count internships in your years of experience? What if it was a long internship that didn't feel like interning and just felt like full-time but was labeled internship?
Perpetually an intern... working at the same company for 1.5+ years and easily doing the work of a junior creative, & taking the heat off my CDs daily; sometimes I’m the only AD on big jobs. I’m not making a livable wage & I’ve undercut my soul, free time, and financial stability with no end in sight. My teammates always really appreciate my hustle and insights. It makes me wonder what else I could possibly do. Put on more make up? Start poppin adderal? I’m joking... but what would you do?
Is asset management a difficult path post-MBA? Are there any lucrative finance roles outside of IB that are available to T15 MBA grads?
Our START interns need to get it together. Ripped jeans. T shirts. Shorts. At the office-what is this? FYI, I'm black and was also the equivalent to a START intern at another firm. Do I say something?
I find it interesting the volume of talk about anti-anxiety meds has dropped off a cliff since the pandemic started. Are we feeling less social anxiety WFH?
In the past year we switched to wearing jeans in the office and are now allowed to work remote from home when we don't have to be onsite. Just curious if this is standard practice now in the industry.
What can I do to get hired at my agency? Ive been an intern for almost 9 months already and it seems like all I do is resize banners. I know I could leave but it is my dream agency and CONT.
On my notice period and bench for the next couple of weeks. With wfh I'm basically doing whatever I want (running, reading, swimming, day trips nearby) during work hours. Can't travel abroad cos UK visa is being issued. Any activities/places I should visit in London that get jam packed during the weekend?
Hey guys- I have an intern buddy who was assigned to me and they’re just down the block from me. They want to meet up and I feel awful because they came to the city to intern and they don’t know anyone. It is not policy to meet up rn but if I was to just meet the person in a park for a coffee is that not a good move?
Recently, I have applied an internship at EY, but I didn’t received the assessment test. Does anyone know why？Thank you！EY
My roommate is currently having a very loud conference call with 60+ very very giggly people. This wfh is going to be fun... she can sit in her room and close her door but nope. Thanks for listening 🤦♀️
Have not changed jobs recently, will be leaving Accenture soon. Is there a checklist I need to start working through (like 401k, insurance.. etc )
Pro tip: use your PTO to go all in on a personal hobby or side project for a week. It’s super refreshing, and you don’t have the stress of travel.
Anyone from LBMC care to share how’s it like working there? I have an interview this week for a tax senior (remote) position. What’s the wlb and pay compared to big4?LBMC
If I have a bunch of money sitting in stocks (no options)...do I sell now? Wait & hope market goes up if/when COVID panic is over? 😬😬😬
Married 🐟, does this travel lifestyle help your marriage? I’m hearing some colleagues refer to the time away as “refreshing” and it gives them a chance to miss their SO. Thoughts?
Has anyone been sent a package from Hilton for hitting 100 nights? I received an email from FedEx that a Hilton address was sending a package, within a week of hitting 100 nights on the year.
I had a major client interview scheduled for today with a very sr client for potential job- it has taken forever to book. An hour before the meeting my Internet went out. I live in a remote area so I don’t have cell service (my husband was out running errands so no car to drive anywhere). I missed the interview and had to followup when it got back on. We rescheduled for wed but I’m pretty horrified. Sent apologies with weak explanation of Internet. How to handle when we finally speak?
Hi everyone, Job ID 138141WD is there anyone from PWC who can provide the referral if possible?
Analysts who left in their 1st year either (voluntarily or laid off) where did you end up and how long did it take you? Consulting isn't for me and I'm obviously only eligible for entry level roles
Anyone in LA and have any tips/insights on how to get connected here? I moved here last year so still pretty new and have had limited opportunities to connect with others due to covid. It seems in both my dating life (F dating M) and trying to make friends (any gender!) people are very flaky. I’m wondering if there are places, groups, or just general tips I might not know of where people are more open and interested in making real connections. Any advice is welcome!
My in-laws bought a Wyndham points time share. And of course they are regretting it now. Is there a way to get rid of it?
Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.
I’m back to having no billable work again. My department almost completely dried up when covid started, so I’ve been relying on work from other busy departments at my firm to keep me busy since March. I feel like I start a new job every couple of weeks and am constantly begging for work. I’m just exhausted. Can anyone else relate?
I got laid off in august and found a freelance gig a couple weeks later. If the freelance gig goes away will I qualify for unemployment? Assuming I don’t qualify right now, right? (I’m in CA)
WYR? Work on a prestigious brand but don’t make anything. Ever. With an up and coming agency that could be something cool some day? Or an agency where you make ALOT and have the opportunity to work on a lot of different brands but have to spend a year working on one terrible client with no work life balance?
Anyone know if what guidehouse senior consultant salary is like, specifically for Cyber? Not much info in glassdoor.
