How’s internal mobility within Apple? I don’t know if the team I’m interviewing with may be the best fit, but I do think I’ll get a foot in the door and get great exposure to tech. I wanted to understand if people can move around after a certain period within the firm.
Is it possible to find a good exit in a less populated area? I don’t want to be near a big city — I want a house and a big yard. But every single job that would be a good career move is in a big city. Do good jobs in small markets exist? How do you find them? I’ve considered 100% remote roles, but it seems hard to progress in a career if I’m not physically present.
Super unhappy with my current project/firm and looking to pivot quickly. Struck out at an MBB final round last week, had been prepping for a while. What’s the best course of action moving forward? Continue networking, applying, and trying to get referrals? Not sure how much longer I can take it doing current work. For context, went to an Ivy and have 2YOE. Any help’s appreciated.
Looking to move to a fintech startup. Ex-MS Investment Management, current senior strategy consultant at a management consulting firm (recently promoted). 5+ YOE. Want to do either partnerships or Ops Strategy, but open to reccs. Anyone willing to refer or provide guidance?
Are staff augmentation common in Big 4
I got married when I was 30. Now I am 34 and all of a sudden I find myself pressured to have a baby ASAP. My parents, my sisters, my friends and my husband all have been telling me that it’s late and I should start planning soon. There is another couple in my social circle who just announced their pregnancy and the rest of them already have kids. The pressure has skyrocketed and I am terribly anxious.

Mega fund VP level role with all cash comp (obviously) OR equal comp at pre ipo 100B tech firm, but with still private and desired stock. Mega fund work is more interesting and clear path to D/MD hence comp growth, which I don’t really see at the tech firm. Any thoughts ? I gravitate towards the fund
Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.
I feel hopeless on my project and I cry regularly as soon as I hang up at least one call a day. (Woo work from home!)
I’ve always gotten the advice that when you want to switch jobs you should take interviews from places you’re not actually interested in, so you can understand your value in the market and have better negotiating power. I’m doing that rn - took a couple interviews to gauge my skills, my market value, and see what I need to work on for interviews that I actually care about. However, I feel really guilty about wasting their time and going all the way knowing I’ll just say no at the end. Wwyd?
