I will be moving to Montreal in couple of months from Boston. I already have a Scotia credit card with me. Should I start building my credit history by making some purchases here and there. Will it be helpful in any way when I land like rental agreements etc. Any other suggestions.
Some savage ripped the crossword answer sheet out of my in-flight mag. How am I supposed to know what "to go, say" is alluding to without talking to the guy next to me in the nascar jacket

Has anyone been close to 75 night platinum and talked your way into it? If so, how close? Debating if it's worth staying at SPG if there are better hotels since I won't get to 75.

Does anyone else feel like management likes to make staff the butt of every joke? It’s pretty much locker room talk every time staff spend time with management (lunch, travel, etc).

Mamas who travel... how did you overcome the fear of having your child not have the same “mom” relationship with you?
One of the best thing of the job is you won't be stuck with the same people. I'm so glad I'll roll off soon and it's been so frustrating to deal with some ppl on my team.
As someone who never plans/wants to get married or have kids, I know I’ll never get back the money I spent on my friends’ weddings, bachelor parties, kids birthdays etc. I know that and I was fine with it because they’re my friends. But last weekend, I didn’t bring a gift to my friend’s kid’s 8th birthday party. Not cause I didn’t want to, but just ran out of time and honestly I don’t know what 8year olds are in to and I’ll just give the parents a gift cards later (cont)
Curious as to what the views on canibas (medical & recreational use) are in the finance industry. From what I've seen, it's a stigma compared to alcohol, but maybe it just appears that way?
I currently work in a hybrid sales/marketing role. However, I would love more experience in marketing specifically so I can move in to a marketing specific role.

Thank you

That awkward moment when you're sitting in Orals for an RFP and the client says they don't understand what role you've been brought in to discuss...
Like most of the agencies, we were operating in a high touch environment with our clients to grow business. And in 2020 everyone understood the need to operate remotely and focused on getting the work done. However a lot of sales/opportunities for growth were discovered in informal coffee/lunch sessions with clients. I wonder how are all of you engaging with clients in a remote set up. Would love to hear everyone’s experiences..
Does EY have Advisory Director titles? I thought they had don’t away with them during a RIF / role elimination.
Have an interview coming up and I’m a tad nervous. I feel that when I overprepare, I come off as robotic and the overpreparation makes me more nervous. I have a strong network at the company but I can find it hard to describe my achievements. Do you guys have any tips or can relate?
Is there still a hiring freeze at deloitte?
My H1B visa transfer with EY has been approved. We have received the e-approval. Can I now resign or give notice at my current firm? The guidance apparently is to wait for physical copy of the approval before officially resigning. But that date is uncertain and I’m afraid I could get the physical copy a day before my start date or a week after that. I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts? As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.

I love you guys. My anonymous therapy group, sounding board, and, when needed, unapologetic enablers. Yeah I'll do another shot at PHL, why not?
Oh thank goodness you confiscated my Tom's toothpaste, TSA. I was planning on whitening someone to death on my flight later.
Do not go to the domestic terminal in ATL. TSA has made it a complete cluster fuck. Precheck line is past the restaurants in the atrium.
