Been living in NY the past 3 years at an agency. Im interviewing for a role in LA and excited/nervous. Felt like I didn’t really get to experience NYC because of the pandemic and now I might be leaving. Good opportunity, but have never been lived in the west coast and not sure how to decide. Advice ? Anyone going through it too?

Controversial opinion but: they’re the same city.

*sound of a “nope!” buzzer*

NYC is so much better in a million ways than LA. I hate traffic, driving, hot weather, smog, obnoxious plastic surgery, superficiality, and faux science “health consciousness”. I have good friends in LA and every time I leave - I think- THANK GOD I DON’T LIVE HERE.

You hate traffic, driving, hot weather, smog, obnoxious plastic surgery, and faux science huh?

Nyc blows, LA blows, escape the cities bro

You’ll never know which you like better until you try both. Plus, you can always move back. That’s what I’ve told myself with every move and I’ve never regretted, even if it wasn’t my favorite city in the end.

Consultant here with ~2 YOE! In the past few months, I feel pigeonholed at my firm and being pushed more and more towards coding and RPA (Robotic Process Automation). I feel my greatest strength is my analytical work! While I definitely understand the value of automation, I feel like I can bring the most value in a BA role. Any advice/suggestions on how I can take the next step in advancing my career? Thanks in advance!

Just heard back from EY that they will not proceed with an offer 😞 Receuiter said I did great in interviews but the market condition change/lack of pipeline was the concern. Recruiter wanted to keep the communication open for next year as they expect things to change by then, but all sounds a bit like a nicely wrapped rejection. Disappointed but I guess I should focus on the next interviews with Deloitte and KPMG!

Down because I got some upsetting (work-related) news yesterday. I was up for promotion and did not get it, basically for my actual job that I have been acting in for over a year. I had perfect reviews and perfect on the technical portion of the interview. Apparently they dinged me on something subjective relating to situational competencies. Colleagues—who I trained and mentored—did receive promotion and we will all be working at the same job, just them at higher level and pay. Contd.
