Good for you! I'm currently balancing five...

Also it's hard because sometimes you're working on both projects remote so you can't go to team events or meet with people in person most of the time.

Always been this way. I like it though

Ey2- so true. I have been working with these people for over a year, but I have never met them in-person.

Curious for those of you who work in BD/Growth/etc or know anyone who does...is it possible to negotiate a certain % of pitch winnings into your compensation package? And if so what a traditional or competitive rate is?

Feel like when I was starting out in BD someone told me their former supervisor of the department made 1-3% of what was billed to the client in the first year after a pitch win but unsure how common or uncommon this actually is.

I think it’s easy to get in a rut in your current client project or practice and plateau in learning. So for this year, I’m prioritizing self learning and would love any insights or advice you have on the following related to strategy consulting (or life in general!):

1. Best book recommendations
2. Best external trainings that are market relevant
3. Anything else that has personally made you sharper

But UI, never done it before... high fid, design systems etc are all so new to me. This is making me so insecure getting into the new job what if I make a fool of myself? What if I ruin projects and real client work? Should be excited but can't stop overthinking.

This is a pretty weak confession, but didn't know where else to post it.

Hello everyone,

I'm new on this platform and I'm here to understand about the opportunities that might be available for the upcoming spring term.

I'm currently pursuing my masters in pace university, information systems. I have 14 months of experience in sales back in india and worked in the world's largest ed tech i.e Byju's the learning app. I'm looking for opportunities regarding sales and marketing internship. And can start working from January 2023.

Currently I am in charge of building the onboarding program for my company, so I was curious about everyone's experience with regards to this. I have read through quite a lot of materials online and the majority of the companies don't have a decent or engaging onboarding program.

What were some things that you like/didn't like, when you were onboarded?
