I’m using My consulting offer. It’s expensive but I figured i would be more upset if I didn’t get a coach and didn’t pass than if I didn’t gain as much value from the coach and could have gotten in alone

Do any of the MBBs consult for FAANG or top tech companies? Or do all those companies exclusively use in house strategy teams? If any MBB does, a referral would be much appreciated

I really appreciate when interviewers give feedback and don’t ghost. Just received a rejection email saying I interviewed well but didn’t have the experience. It’s a slight confidence boost for me.

I’ve applied to over 40 jobs since I was laid off in March. Not one click to my portfolio, per analytics. With a family of four, we are being spread thin. Not only is the income desperately needed, but my creative soul needs a release. I would be happy to do typical Art Director work but I’m “over qualified” for that and am never taken seriously when applying for work below CD/ACD. If anyone needs or know of any company needing freelance work, large or small—I’d really appreciate the lead. 🙏

I have a little less than $30,000 in a “Pension Cash” fund of my previous employer. When I say cash, this is truly cash - the ~$30K will sit and continue to rot until I turn 55. Not tied to anything in the market. The firm is adamant that I cannot withdraw/roll over this money under any circumstances until I hit 55. Anyone been in a similar situation? Any advice on possible options to gain access to the funds?

I have about 30% of my 401K in a target date fund which hasn’t moved the needle much. Wondering if I should “sell” 10% of the target date fund, hold money in a money market and then wait for a dip to buy more S&P. Note - this is all done within the 401K portfolio. I am not cashing out of 401K.
