Hi Folks! One question - can we travel for an internal two week training to another company office without an LCA?
Good day everyone,
I'm a recent grad who landed in Canada with a small dream of becoming a human resource professional and work in corporate sector.
I'm trying to land on a job from last 10 months, after applying to 100s of jobs, been on so many interviews I am still not getting anywhere.
I've started to loose all hopes!
It is my humble request to all experienced people, If anyone could guide me in right direction that would be highly appreciated.
What are the different types of allowances that can be expected once we join Deloitte USI ?
I’m an LCSW with 7 years experience. Currently working as an EAP consultant for an insurance company from home. The pay is good but I hate being on a call queue and the schedule is SO rigid. As a working mom I’m wondering if there are other options for remote WFH positions in insurance out there that don’t require being in a call queue and having supervisors monitoring every single second of your day? I work so much better when I have time to prioritize my tasks and work at my own pace.

Trying to do a little market research. I’m a partner at a corporate boutique focused on tech startups, and we’re recruiting BigLaw refugees. Would the following offer be appealing to you?:
-Fixed salary 60% of Cravath scale
-No hours requirement. We expect you to work hard 40-45 hours/week, but we’ll respect your nights and weekends (with rare exceptions), and let you take holidays and planned vacations
-Work from anywhere
If it’s a marginal “no” for you, what would push you over the edge?
Another vanity question, sorry!
What other botox-type things have you tried that are worth it and not too obvious? (e.g. any fillers? Restalyne? Other things?). Curious what else is out there and for what purpose. Don’t want to look Hollywood fake, just young 😇
Co-worker told me first time he met the partner on the engagement he said "you were supposed to be a girl".
The partner was trying to make team more diverse, not a creep lol.

Hello all, I'm a junior level consultant in the ERP space. I'm passionate about energy and the growing renewables field. Given my current career, are there any careers I can pivot to in the future or will my ERP background hinder me from getting into the renewables industry?
Does anyone have the Suvie? Too busy / tired to cook and getting concerned about feeding my kids takeout all the time…
If I want to produce my own film, should I partner up with a production company? The CEO likes my project but wants to help produce it, meaning he wants his vision to become a part of it. We'll see how this turns out.

I have about 100k of my previous company stock , holding them for 3 years now. They did not grow much like other stocks and it’s risky to have this much amount in individual stock. If I sell them today I would have to pay about 20k in taxes. What’s the recommended way for selling? Should I sell Thai year or next year?
So its a foregone conclusion that Elon will develop an electric space car that can asteroid mine autonomously while being controlled by a brain chip. Therefore I am putting my life’s savings in Tesla!
My pension fund account finally hit 0% return yesterday. It was at 20% IRR at its peak.
I have a Roth IRA that I opened in 2003 invested in CGMFX which has not being doing so great. I'd like to reinvest this in something a little more stable but wondering if I should wait until it (hopefully) goes back up or cut my losses now? I stopped contributing about 8-10 years ago when my income exceeded the cap. I have about 900 shares.

Is it safe to invest in my Roth IRA? My firm has a lot of stock buying restrictions. I’m worried that as I get promoted, they will shut down more of my accounts or positions.

In 2018, when I was 40, I paid a fee-only fiduciary a flat rate fee of $2400 for financial advice. My spouse & I had $1.5M in invested assets at the time (excluding home equity). We spent two 1-hr sessions with the fiduciary to review joint assets, and a week later he spent another hour walking us through a thick summary of asset allocation suggestions, various retirement scenarios, etc. I thought it was worthwhile to get a pro’s opinion, and there were no assets transferred to his firm since we just did the $2400 flat rate fee - I made tweaks to asset allocation on my own. I would consider going back to a fee-only fiduciary in another 2-3 yrs. Fortunately our investment accts (including contributions) have grown to over $2.2M since then 👍
I’ve looked into it as well and when i went to see one that was a pretty good one (and family friend) he basically told me i was doing everything they would do.
My conclusion is if you’re active in this bowl, do your research, i don’t think you really need one. So much free information is available these days.
I think it’s for people that perhaps need some hand holding. I’m assuming you’re not one of those as you work at PwC? Just depends, i guess..
I moved to one at 37. I didn’t have much— less than half a mil. But I was finding that between the work and a young family I didn’t have enough time to do sufficient market research and make sound investment decisions. That was 18 months ago.
I didn’t move everything. Kept about 10% as my play money. This week I moved that 10% to him as well (as it was only 6% by now). I did okay. He did a lot better, and some of my highest returns were from mimicking him.
At what point can boil down to want vs. need. This can vary (some of these mentioned above)—your level of financial acumen, looking for a sounding board, lack of time (now and in the future) to focus/invest in learning/doing, lack of a plan and guidance for coming up with one, someone to ask you questions you may not have thought of, help guide conversations b/t you and a spouse, etc.
