Does a masters from Harvard Extension School come with the same perks, open the same doors as regular Harvard? I’m guessing there’s always going to be a difference but seems like a good deal (it’s cheaper than some state schools) with a semi-prestigious datapoint to add to the resume? Would love to hear from folks who’ve done it.

Considering getting my nose pierced. It would be a really tiny gold stud, nothing bulky or sparkly. What are the chances this will impact my career…I’m 30, female, and a personal injury lawyer. Been wanting to do this for awhile, thought it would make me look unprofessional. But now I’m thinking life is short and no one would really care. Thoughts?

Have you ever been ghosted by a recruiter that added you as a connection on LinkedIn? I saw an interesting job posting and reached out to the person who posted (the hiring mgr). 2 days later, a recruiter from the company sent me an invite to connect but didn't include a message. 3 days after that, I sent them a message asking for a call to learn more about the role. It's been almost two weeks now of total silence. Why did they send me the invite if they had no plans to follow up with me?
Is there a community for recruiters similar to SHRM but for talent acquisition pros?
Big plus if there’s a strong presence in New York City metro area.

Any other Deloitte folks get screwed in their year end rating because of low utilization since there were so few projects to be had earlier this year? Manager openly said it was "beyond my control".
Can someone at BAH tell me where a “Management Consultant, Senior” falls in the scale of things? I am currently with Accenture and am a Consultant and trying to figure out if this is a step, down, lateral or step up. Mainly concerned with responsibility level at the moment.
Are your companies letting you work remote? I asked my company about possibility of going fully remote next year and was met with resistance. According to them, working full time remote stifles growth, especially for those that are new in the company and are in the junior staff (manager and below). How is it at your firm and are they being more flexible with remote work?
Lately, I’ve been noticing, that I struggle with deep conversation/asking proper follow-up questions. I move on from topic to topic and don’t dig deeper to truly understand a topic (this is not just due to my lack of interest in a certain topic, I just don’t realize it).
Sometimes the person I’m talking to also loses interest in the conversation. Has anyone dealt with this? Any tips to become excellent in conversations?

Monday morning flights kill consulting careers
Just showed up to a partner happy hour and was first to arrive. I figured it wouldn't reflect well on my work ethic to be the earliest to a HH so I bounced...to another bar until more people show up.
Any Deloitte SM or + here? The way we do proposals in service ops is absurd. No communication, siloed teams, analysts writing technical approaches, disconnected leadership. Is this par for the course?

You will probably get better answers in the KPMG bowl, but from my limited understanding, ignition is (at least partially) responsible for developing client relations & getting more work in the pipeline / helping that work continue down the pipeline to eventually become an engagement
Be careful with KPMG ignition. My 2 friends work with them and in their group they’re strictly internal teams. No travel, no clients , and basically just coding monkeys (that also have to work with offshore teams). Also less pay because their group is technically under tax.
D1, please explain more. Currently interviewing.
