You're at Deloitte now? Is it a tech role you want?

Non-tech role, at Deloitte

I just left there! It would be funny if that was one of the jobs you were applying for.

I got a better offer elsewhere. It wasn't a bad office to work in, really.

Just got another rejection... Is exiting to FAANG or MB really this hard? Trying to go tech.. or mbb, but not getting anywhere. I have 2 masters (mba, ms) from top schools, been in consulting for over 10 years, I am confident that I know my stuff well..but still I keep getting rejected. Interviewed with Google, Amazon, Cisco, McKinsey, and a few others and every-time there is something that is not a match... are the hiring managers looking for like 100% match? That will never happen!!!

For those of you who left big 4 for industry - I’m seeing a lot of people saying they got 30% + raises when leaving. How did you find these jobs willing to pay that much more? Looking to leave at the M1 level and having trouble finding anything with much more than a 10-15% increase in base comp. from my current salary. Would it be dumb to leave for that low of a percentage increase? Some are offering equity in addition to the base comp. but hard to put a specific value to that now.

We don't know what the long-term consequences of covid-19 are yet. Please wear your masks! Many viruses go on to be the cause of various cancers, whether or not you manifest symptoms when you initially catch the disease. 20 years from now, we could all have lung cancer or some sort of blood cancer. Even if you aren't concerned about getting sick now, we all should be concerned about what the long-term effects of it may be. Please be responsible. Take care of yourself and take care of others.

I've already had an isolation period so it's not Covid, but I'm thinking it might be the higher levels of carbon monoxide, as I've tried wearing a different mask and did not have the same problem.
