Are there options trading coaches or mentors? I’ve done well in stocks trading, have basic knowledge of derivatives from the BComm in Finance and various books/online resources.
But I feel like I’m really lost in the actual practical aspect of options trading and would love to learn directly from someone who’s experienced and successful in it. Preferably someone who’s smart about risk-minimizing strategies.

I've been trying to get out of customer service for a few years now ever since I got my bachelor's 6 years ago. I have a bachelor's in business administration. And Im getting my MBA in November. I feel like I've done everything I can to move ahead, but I feel blocked. I've tried sales, account analyst positions, operations, marking, digital marketing. And not a single will reach out to me and offer me a job or they'll interview me and say I'm not a good fit. Help?

I just recently got a job, which to me, is amazing. 120k salary, no real expenses other than living costs (rent and food). What is a good way to set myself up for success? My company matches my 401k contribution. Not sure about Roth or traditional. Trying to save up as much as I can because I am a little late to the game, late 20s. Any advice to someone trying to learn and catch up?

Can anyone provide some tips for getting into MBB. Currently working in rx and getting MBA part time from a T25 school.
Started at Slalom a few months ago after multiple big 4 stops. Best decision I’ve ever made for my career. If you’re current B4 and want to learn more, let me know. They’re building something truly great though and happy to be a part of it.
Edit (some are asking but I’ll reply in comments or DM)
1) tremendous WLB and people centric approach - people centric is not lip service.
2) pay is more than competitive and growth has been great -
3) you make a real impact on clients.
What is the “Part Time Associate” or PTA position? Is this an internship or something?
Does any of the MBB+T2 in the US have such position?
Sorry if this is a dumb question. I recruited directly to a FT position and have little clue about how the internship system works. I haven’t seen my firm (one of T2s) offering the “PTA” position.

Fish, have you had a hard time with your parents/in-laws listening to the social distancing guidelines. I live in the same city as my in-laws and they are having happy hours in their driveways, going to parks, etc... we have a small kiddo and they want to see him, but I can’t bring myself to take them over there because they are so lax with social distancing. Has anyone else experienced this?
