How does experienced hiring (generally) work in consulting? Are there cycles similar to campus recruiting or is it year-round? Got laid off a few weeks back and the job hunt has been frustrating
I’m considering applying for remote legal admin positions in addition to my current role (also remote, with flexible schedule). Do we foresee any issues with working two remote jobs, assuming no conflicts? How could I go about talking about my current role, if asked? It would be nice to have an extra income source, and since I work from home, I don’t see the time being an issue.
DM for EY referral. Junior levels preferred.
I felt very good following Dana’s Town Hall. Having heard other networks are already facing furloughs and layoffs, did you feel as encouraged?

Newly promoted experienced hire SC making $113k, 10 YOE (switched industries). Got an offer from TCS in an Advisory practice (not the tech sweatshop stuff that I keep seeing people mention). Base salary is $190k and in TCS equivalent of a M role. Downside to taking the salary hike and boomeranging back to D in ~2 years? FYI - I have 2 kids, so that kind of pay raise is kind of a big deal.
Had an interview with a firm in NYC I’m really interested in earlier this week. It felt like it went well and like the partners (including the hiring partner) liked me. What is the general time between interview and offer/rejection?
I’ve been laid off and, as I embark on my job search, I’d like to keep my marketing skills sharp. Any recommendations on must read books, or resources?
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
Hi All. Recently got laid off here in Chicago. Trying to network with other people from other firms. I was wondering if any consultants in Chicago would like to meet up sometime? Thank You.

Got laid off. Not completely unexpected but still stings. Everything on the table but difficult to decide path forward. Been doing this so long I never considered anything else. How do you prioritize?
With this all AI and automation what group you think is good for job security and exit opportunities? Core Business tax, international tax or expat tax? Planning to stay until Senior 2 or M1 thanks
Anyone know the difference between title from job posting when applying and your title/role in the internal Accenture system? Started at Accenture today and mine don’t match
For over 15 years I held customer support roles in a variety of industries. At the same time developing skills in other areas; such as being ordained as a Zen priest and receiving an Integral Coach certification. After being laid off in May, I decided to pursue my coaching business full time. My question is, for those who have sought out coaching, which area of your life did you focus on first and why?
Has anyone reapplied for a role where they previously got rejected after interviewing? Was it successful?

Any advice on how to do virtual interviews when my firm has me back in the office full time?
I’m still fuzzy on this whole innovation thing. People are still getting hired to the role. What do they do? They seem to be nothing more than pundits. Someone else could be hired for that salary.
Just got dinged from McK & BCG US, but received offers to interview with their offices in my home country. (EU) Is it worth doing this and try to transfer to the states at some point or should I reject outright? (Have a T2 return offer and a Bain interview for the US)
With traditional education being challenged by Coursera, Udemy, EDX and other MOOC's, do certifications like CISSP, CISM, PMP, CCNA.. still hold weight in today's world? What about 3-5yrs frm now?
Has anyone found the AWS Cloud Practitioner Certification to be helpful for people in non-technical roles? Any experience in how potential employers view this cert would be greatly appreciated!

If Toy Story was real... Do you think the toys would try to help us? or would they stay still and leave us to fight COVID19 alone?
When you went to the drive-thru at Sonic for the first time in years for a 50 cent corn dog only to have your credit card info stolen... Cruel world we live in.

Not so H1B - Is there a CPA service that i can use to file my tax return by contacting them through email? I already returned to my home country but my tax return is so confusing. Thanks!
I moved to Canada aft not winning H1B. I recruited w some firms and went through final round. They said that they can sponsor me a visa, but i am not sure how they will take me. Is H1B the only option? If so, i am afraid that they wont be willing to wait till next year to hire me..
I almost got out of Pharma... A CD from a Consumer agency doing solid work reached out, and I was so excited thinking I could finally do the kind of work I love. Then they told me they will fill the position with a current employee. I played it cool, but I can’t deny I felt frustrated. I don’t wanna do healthcare, but it seems like it’s the only thing available in NYC nowadays. I also don’t have many connections in this city. So, IF you need an ACD/Art (full-time or FL-to-perm), let’s chat! 🙌🏻
