I have 2 YOE at a tier 2 consulting firm and just graduated top of class with an MS at a target school. How do I go about networking/getting a referral to transfer over to MBB?
Looking for a referral in consulting. Anyone who can refer me from Big 4's or MBB or any other tech consulting firms? Can DM you if you are willing to provide me a referral. Thank you!
Hi all. Quick question - I had a phone call with a recruiter from EY about a Senior Consultant role in FSO. They mentioned that they'd sent my resume up and that others were very interested in connecting as well. I finished the recorded interview/game assessment yesterday. How long should I expect to be ball of anxiety in the shape of a human? My appreciation in advance!
Does anybody do a “work uniform” in the office? I’m new in an in-house role at a company that has dress for your day (primarily jeans), and I’m thinking about doing that when we go back (1-2 days a week). I need to buy new clothes post-covid anyways. I’m thinking some casual, but quality, plain black dresses that I can wear a sweater, jacket, blazer (when necessary), shirt, etc. over. Could dress up or down with shoes. Thoughts?
Any EY PAS folks who can assist with a referral?
Working with an (external) headhunter for a role, and just found out they want me to proceed to the second round of interviews. I had told the headhunter after the first round that I was interested in moving forward (although I did express some concerns I had) but after thinking about it, I’ve decided I’m not interested in the role. Does it look bad to go back on my word and drop out of the process now?
Anyone from Genpact? Need a referral TIA

Was laid off in April and just got an offer for 25% more than i was making but for a role that I am not too excited about. Times are tough and i do need to get income. How bad is it to accept but continue with the rounds of interviews I started for roles I am more excited about?
Trying to exit into FAANG but know it may be a long shot involving a handful of rejections. Meanwhile got approached by a number of recruiters for a) smaller emerging startup <but need to shift geo>, and b) major banks for in-house strategy. I’ll proceed with interviews with a) since it will give me a flavour of tech recruiting, but should I even go through with interview process for b)? Thoughts? Fyi, have not interviewed in 4+ years!

Interview feedback: my answers weren’t concrete enough. I answered questions by sharing my work process, then sharing an example from prior projects and in the example I included how I prepare, who I involve, what that looks like day to day, types of required meetings and what is discussed, how I make decisions, etc. I’m looking for tips on how I can address this feedback? I have fulfilled the responsibilities of the role I applied for so I have the experience. Just need to frame it right.
If offered a job at a promising but small HF, what's the least (base salary) that you would take on the position for?
Is it possible to find a good exit in a less populated area? I don’t want to be near a big city — I want a house and a big yard. But every single job that would be a good career move is in a big city. Do good jobs in small markets exist? How do you find them? I’ve considered 100% remote roles, but it seems hard to progress in a career if I’m not physically present.
Anyone have a career counselor they would recommend? A friend is trying to shift into a different role/industry but not getting much interest from companies. Info on the costs would be helpful too.

How long did it take to process H4 and H4 EAD this past year. My SO just got their EB1 denied after multiple RFEs. Now have to switch to H4, as the H1B is expiring soon. We’re applying for an O in parallel. Looking for advise or positive stories to stay hopeful. I have an approved I-140
I was contacted by a Facebook recruiter for a Data Scientist interview, but I'm not ready to take a new job right now. Should I take the interview for the practice or would that look bad if I want to seriously apply next year?
Now that the CDC says no masks needed indoors if vaccinated, is anybody concerned what that means for kids under 12? I’m assuming that the honor system isn’t entirely going to work (I.e., some unvaccinated people will go maskless). I don’t want my 5 and 7 year olds around unvaccinated unmasked strangers, but it’s also a bummer to stop taking them places. Not that I was taking them that many places, but the occasional grocery store, shoe store, etc. seems riskier now.
Had second interview with MD and don’t think I did well 😔 at least it’s Friday and can drink away sorrows
Trying to see if MBA is worth for me - I've just accepted an account director at an agency for $140K, 6 yoe, and trying to seek for MBA in order to transition into tech marketing. I heard that it's only worth it if the salary would double, but since I'm in HCOL I would hope that won't be the case. When you were trying to gauge if MBA is worth for you, what resources help you the most?
I have received an offer for a 50% increase in TC to go into a Sales (Solutions Consultant) role. I don’t really want to leave consulting as I left sales 3 years ago to go back to consulting. However my wife and I are expecting and she will no longer work after we have our child. As much as a I don’t want to jump again or go back to sales I’m at an impasse between doing work I enjoy or living (and paying) for the life we enjoy. Anyone experience this dilemma before? Thoughts or advice? ￼
