Any advice for someone (a friend) looking to transition from film production to advertising? Having a ton of trouble getting even an interview for a junior role - even the most junior account roles are asking for 1-3 years of agency experience. TONS of transferable skills and super eager/great attitude, just hitting a wall. I suspect all it’ll take is a break by one of the many people he’s met for coffee, but any advice or words of wisdom would be appreciated.
Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on. Also, we get put on so many random engagements it’s hard to build tangible skills. I am talking big 4, MBB is a different game.
What was the Parthenon Group like before the EY acquisition? How was it perceived compared to MBB, Big 4, etc. in terms of prestige, exit opps, etc.?
Has anyone heard of DLC Inc in Los Angeles? They’re a financial consulting firm that I am being recruited by. Seems like a decent fit for my experience but I want to know more Exit opportunities?

How much $$ are firms are willing to pay for a consultant with 3 YOE? It seems like a lot of firms are on a craze to hire and poach talent. Trying to judge how much I can negotiate with a lateral move (Big 4), and whether it's worth leaving my very comfortable environment right now. Would appreciate your input - thanks in advance!

I was diagnosed with ADHD a long time ago, and because of the low severity of it and the affects of adderall I decided to not be medicated. I think with WFH and Covid times it’s gotten a lot worse for me and I’ve noticed my work performance tanking and my anxiety rising in public accounting. I know this is normal for people in PA who don’t even have ADHD, but does anyone have any advice??
