Been working in PA for 2 years. No prior internships or business related work. Is it okay that my resume is just my associate role with like 15 bullet points? Not sure how to fill in the blank space, and it feels super lame to bring in non-relevant college jobs. Can I include ways I'm involved at the firm like mentorship and diversity initiatives?

Not all college jobs are non-relevant if you are only 2 years out. Honestly some of our best hires are former bartenders/waitstaff because they understand what it’s like dealing with needy customers/clients. Just make sure you can talk about anything that’s on it and spin it to the role you want.

Yeah 15 bullet points is overkill for one job. It’s totally fine to talk about your other work and just give it a couple bullet points of your main duties and if you did anything worth mentioning. Go ahead and include skills you picked up, financial models you’re familiar with, and software that you’re proficient in.

On this day 6 months ago, I left my prior firm. I’m still in consulting but no more waking up in the middle of the night in cold sweats, no more conversations with my gf about how my working hours and stress are affecting our relationships, no more interventions hosted by friends who are worried about me, and no more financial issues. I would have quit after bonus payouts even if nothing had been lined up. Luckily I found something. I’m in a pensive mood - life is good 😊
