I just left ESG. A lot growth the last 12 months, but all very low margin.

A lot of my projects were assurance based, so basically audit but for emission data. Had some cooler projects like risk and opp analysis, but honestly most of it was either assurance or assurance readiness.

Unless you have a strong passion for sustainability it’s really just audit in a different flavor, would not recommend.

Interested to know as well from a Tech Risk standpoint!

I work at a boutique firm specializing in ESG strategy and sustainable finance advisory. We are increasingly moving away from emissions and environmental data assurance work. Our core service offerings have become decarbonization strategy and implementation work, as well as social impact measurement/strategy/disclosure.

I posted before: I long thought I was NYC for life, but the disparity between taxes and services was beginning to weigh on me. I can't pay MORE in taxes and receive LESS in services than everywhere else in the country. Our streets are dirtier and our trashcans overflowing. Our shelters and public housing are a disgrace, and many homeless are on the street. Our police are handcuffed by progressive BS, and safety is becoming a distant memory.

And I hadn't even yet thought about our schools. .

Siegfried Group -
I had an initial call with a recruiter and got turned down about 6-7 months ago. I was having a really bad day (just found out a relative had passed, more than normal work stress, ect) and just really had a tough time gathering my thoughts. I honestly should have rescheduled the call but I just didn’t really want to have to push it out and coordinate schedules again. Any chance I can get a second look? The career path aligns with my interests and my background is a great fit.

When you don't have enough work to keep busy, you should procrastinate in order for it to pile up that way you will be busy again. This is the key to living a stressful life, with intermittent periods of "I should be working" guilt ridden down time
