#advice #mentorship #creativedirectors Hello, business owners and creative community leaders. Since moving to SW Florida end of 2019, professional life has been a f*ckin doozy (for many of us.) For 15 years I’ve been an art director / brand / designer and can say I’ve done well. After many connections and interviews and tests and hoops I’m not getting hired. Feeling defeated, frustrated — bang head here! Any mentors / leaders that can advise a renewed jump to restart? Thank you in advance.
Need advice - working less than a month. I recently moved to industry as VP role from audit. I realized that workload and responsibilities were way more than I expected and the company fired so many people ( vps and svps) and wants me to replace 3 VPs work for the year-end. I worked all wknds just to figure out if I can compete the work or not, and concluded that it’s beyond my capacity. I was not told this during interview, and the culture is very toxic as well.

Hello everyone, I had given written test for Snr java developer in HCL and cleared it. After i cleared it, i gave technical interview on 25th of December'21. Since then, i haven't received any sort of response from any Hr or Talent Acquisition grp. I have tried contacting them in all possible ways. If i hadn't cleared the round, they could have informed about the same.
I have consistently gotten Bs in every single class in law school with a single A- and B+ thrown into the mix. I have extensive work experience prior to school having worked at a firm as a legal assistant and in entertainment before that. Where should I be applying now that firms have concluded summer program hiring and probably aren’t excited by my mediocre grades? I am intelligent and hard working with excellent interpersonal skills, but when it comes to exams I am weak. Any advice for a 2L?

Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2? I got a few offers recently, and now have to make a decision between Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2. GT has higher salary and position, while KP's people are really nice and professional during the interview, besides it's hard for me to say no to a Big 4 opportunity. GT is focusing on enterprise and high net worth taxes, while KP is focusing on energy mining industry tax and tax provisions. Hard to make decision!

Hi All, I am in the midst of a public trust MBI rn. I got an EOD so I can start working on my project. I've heard if you fail a clearance it's nbd, because they can just put you on a project that requires a trust. My question is what if you fail to get a trust? Are there government projects that don't require any clearance? Also, would I be able to attempt to move to commercial in a case like this?

Anyone happy with where they're at and don't want to climb the ladder? I'm a C-level and make just about 6 figures annually. I don't live in a high cost of living area (it's moderate) and don't have a ton of expenditures. I live VERY comfortably and have investments as well. I cringe everytime I have to list out "professional goals" or promotional timelines to aim for. I don't want the promo, just give me my annual raise and let me cruise and enjoy life. Any firms that embraces that mentality?
