I don’t understand why I have to bear the bulk of the burden to be a successful role model for the entire family. I’m so tired. Why am I responsible/to blame as to why someone else is successful or not
Wondering if anyone has any tips on how to ask for a referral. I am currently an analyst at a Biotech firm looking to apply for a role at BlackRock. I had great chats with a Director and a VP about the nature of the role and that it would be an industry change for me. Wondering if I should reach out to other associates or ask the people I spoke with. Thanks!
Can anyone tell me if PwC's non-client-serving Director role is the same rank as an EY Director? Or, is it more like an EY Associate Director?
What can you expect the hiring process to be once you interview? I applied for a firm posting, had an interview with two partners for the practice group and then received a request for a second interview the same day. The second interview was with mix of partners and associates from the practice group. I sent thank you emails next day, but not a peep since I received a couple generic responses. I followed up with the partners from the first interview asking for any updates in their decision...
What option of the following would you pick if you were targeting M7 for 2022 start? A) Stay at ACN for the recommendations (will matriculate as a consultant w/ 4 YOE) B) Move to Europe and take current offer at a small startup <10 people for a Business Dev role with way more responsibility than what I’m doing now C) Find an offer at a larger, more established startup (like Shopify) but potentially in a role with less responsibility
Do you negotiate salary upfront in the interview process or after you get an offer? Base salary for initial position seemed lower than expectation but think I can negotiate if I get an offer.
McK fish, its been almost 2 months since my BA application and 1 month since my referral was put in, I haven’t heard anything regarding my candidacy yet. Do any of you know what may be happening or what I can do ? I am an analyst at Big 4 trying to lateral in I also applied to a diff role few weeks ago at McK and was rejected from that within a couple weeks.
I’m sending an email to female partner in a leadership position (never met) to set up a meeting to introduce myself. My plan is to send her a short email, giving some background about myself and let her know I want to connect to introduce myself. During the meeting, I plan to discuss my key projects, ask about her vision and how I can help her/which initiatives could participate. I’m up for Sr Mgr promotion and making a good impression is critical. Any tips? anything else I should prep?
Going into next week, regardless of what happens, remember that you have a voice and a platform to make meaningful change in your community at large. Take a pause from complaining about your current position or exit opportunities from consulting to consider what you want your legacy to be.
I came to my midsized firm from a non-traditional role, haven’t been here a year. Reflecting on my first 200+ hour month, I’m dealing with a nagging feeling that everyone is going to “find out” that I’m basically a first year associate, still in my 20’s and shouldn’t be given the level of work that I’m given. My midyear review was pretty good but I am constantly worrying about whether I’m “faking it” and how to self-assess/advocate well for myself for my year-end review. What do I say?
Just a friendly tip/reminder from a hiring manager: please please please PDF your resumes. It’s not safe to assume that everyone has Microsoft Word, especially if you are applying in tech.
When is the appropriate time to let recruiter/hiring manager know I’m expecting? I have a good feeling about getting a FT offer in coming weeks (have a couple more interviews). I’m due in late Feb and already feel guilty not saying anything while expressing interest in the job. The company gives 6 mo’s leave with no wait period to qualify. If I get a formal offer should I bring this up when I accept? Or wait till after I start?
Anyone work in an FP&A role that is tax specific? How is it? Would you recommend it, compared to big 4 PA?
I have interviews at ZS for a strategy insights and planning consultant role. Any advice on how to prepare for their case interviews? Thanks!
Where do you look for jobs? My small studio is hiring our first subcontractor, and we’re trying to do a more targeted search without drudging through random mismatch submissions from say, indeed. Any tips? Thanks!
I’m a Junior accountant, recent MBA grad in Finance, located in NYC, just got laid off due to a merger. Anybody hiring or know any opening positions?
I just want a 9 to 5 job, nothing stressful and making decent ish money. Work in a data analyst type role atm, what can I do where I just get that 9 to 5? Don't really mind if the work is boring tbh
Management consultant evaluating an offer from Google’s Go-to-market team (Strategy & Operations) in India. Two questions: 1. Given it’s an internal consulting role, are the hours equally bad / worse than consulting firms? 2. Is it virtually impossible to move to a product ladder after spending 1-2 yrs in the role?
Thoughts on this trade? I get Derek Carr and Darren Waller I give Tom Brady and Mike Gesicki 2 QB league, Russell Wilson and Matthew Stafford are my other QBs 2 QB, 3 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 FLEX
My boyfriend is overly critical, particularly when I’ve had a rough day at work. He says this is because it’s hard to find a time to talk to me when I’m not stressed about work, and in my free time I’m not around the apartment. I get needing to have impt conversations with your partner, but this is a multiple time a week, him telling me I should work out more, sleep more, after billing 12 hours a day situation. And the most infuriating thing is that he acts like it’s a matter of self control..
A few questions for anyone who works at Spark or Publicis media... is there any tag like GroupM’s “Partner” that should be negotiated upfront? Has anyone had any luck with a signing bonus? Any other insight would be much appreciated.
Thoughts about getting a 2020 Speedy before the new model comes out? Worth it as a potential “investment”? Or useless to even think this way give the number they have already sold?
It's quite interesting to see the Democrats always so irritated and triggered. Seems awfully insecure for a guy who's up 20 points in the polls. I wonder why that is.
This is a question for (heterosexual) couples with children where the woman is the primary income earner (ie. let’s say over 2/3 of the household income) and the man also works full time. How are parenting and household duties split up in your home? My husband thinks 50/50 is fair even though I work late into the night most days (often till 1 am) while he works a 9-5. When I object he says my career is my choice and he doesn’t care about the money. We used to pay for outside help prior to Covid.
Broke up with my ex about 6 months ago. I'm very non-confrontational and I didn't handle the break up well - I told him it wouldn't work, but I didn't really give him a good reason. I feel bad about it now, it wasn't right of me or fair on him.
It’s been 2 years since a right-wing terrorist, motivated by his belief that the caravan of migrants approaching our Southern border was a threat to our way of life and was somehow being orchestrated by Jews, walked into a synagogue and killed ten people during Sukkot services.
If I’m buying something online, like a camera or binoculars, is it unethical to order two competing models so I can try them out side by side and keep one with the intent of returning the other? Really tough to compare when trying to avoid physically going in store.
Is anyone else having really weird fantasies during this “unprecedented time?” Personally I find myself daydreaming about quitting, hallmark movie style. Then, I’d move to a small town where I meet a cute local that I will initially despise. But, we’ll fall in love as it begins to snow on Christmas Eve JUST as soon as we meet the deadline to decorate the tree in the square so Santa won’t forget to stop in our town. No? It’s just me? Cool, guess I should go ahead and book a therapy session.
As a single 30 female I want a dog, want to buy a house, etc. however both of those things I had wanted to do with someone and feel like I’m putting them off because I wanted them to be joint decisions. I’m starting to be sad that I feel like the things I always wanted I expected to have by now aren’t happening and I will come off like I’m trying to move too quickly with someone new.
"I am Kamala's running mate. Y'all think I'm kidding don't you?" Joe Biden is saying the quiet part out loud. Kamala Harris is the real candidate.
