Mentally yes, financially no.

Let me guess, you are the mile high, cigar smoking sex machine?


Had a semi-mental breakdown today about high expectations and unsustainable lifestyle choices. I often dream about what it would be like to just drive to work on a Monday and drive home at 430pm (or lay on a beach all day)



same as EY1

Financially yes, mentally no. I'm too much of a sociopath that I actually enjoy Consulting.

Getting very discouraged. I don’t know if my experience is all over the place or if I’m experiencing age discrimination. My last job was eliminated because of COVID and after many leads no offers. I’m tired of submitting my resume, filling out application after application, only to get an “we regret to inform you”. I hate filling in salary expectations and being over the budget or being under the allotted budget. Sigh…. Frustrated recruiter aka job seeker


Interviewed yesterday with D for a consulting role with GPS 2ish YOE and multiple internships with big orgs. Everything went great except the qualitative part of the case which was awkward because I was emailed a sheet that had partial info about the case prior to the start, but I was supposed to act as if I didn’t? Quantitatively went very well.
One interviewer had to reschedule due to technical difficulties. Idk if did well enough for the offer but the wait is🤢

Hey fishes,
Just wanted to know the notice period in Australia.
I am on dependent visa with full working right, but seems cts do not have any project.
I am looking forward to put down my papers as I am in free pool.

How much is the notice period for cts employees in Australia if anyone have any idea.

Thanks in advance.
