I need to learn how to do Time Series forecasting in R this weekend for a project. Does anyone have a favorite YouTube video or resource that got them up to speed quickly? I haven't done this type of analysis before.

Lots of us are skilled at delivery but most sales books seem to focus on the pitch and closing... What are your best resources for learning to develop and nurture strong, lasting client relationships?
Anyone left consulting for project management? Do you mind sharing your experience I.e., pay cut/ raise, work/life balance, stress/ anxiety level, overall level of happiness? Thanks Fam
We are here to guide clients: but this is not always the case when your client believes they are the target audience for their product. How do you convince them that they are not and trust the agency?
This week SUCKED and i spent the entire trip home talking myself into thinking positively. Told myself next week would be great, my mood picked up, and then I saw an email from a client that has already f’d my Monday. 🍻 everyone!
I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.). I work with reps at these places as part of my job, but technically their loyalty is to my clients (the ones spending $ on their platform), not to me, working at the client’s creative agency. So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?
I'm struggling to establish boundaries on my project. I get new work assigned at 6pm most days and I'm told they need done by the next day. I start at 7am everyday. Anyone have advice on what I can say to leadership? I seriously can't be working 7am to 11pm every day, my personal life/family is really taking a huge hit. I don't mind the occasional long day, but consistent 14-15 hour days aren't gonna fly anymore.
I've been working in pharma for 5 years and was promoted to AD in 2019 without a pay raise. I am looking for new opportunities now since I'm underpaid. I have strong client relation and leadership skills. Should I be looking for mid or senior level positions? Is senior AD the next level?

Hired as a Director into consulting but the client wants me to become "Chief of Staff" to his functional area. Should I consider that a demotion or promotion? Didn't really sign up for staff augmentation. Large part of my team is inept and the program is failing in areas. (Paper Lion title I never really had a chance to direct anyone.)
First time needing to edgarize a document (my practice is ECVC and have a client doing a Reg CF raise). Am I right in assuming that it’s just converting a Word doc or PDF doc into an SEC-specific format? Any recs on service providers? Would love a cloud-based self-serve tool and understanding of how pricing is supposed to work.
When I was in industry, I started presenting to SVPs as an intern. Now my manager says I’m too junior to present to an SM on the client team (I’m a level 10). This is a little upsetting
New-ish analyst currently on the bench. Any tips on how to network and find a good project that aligns to my skills? I go to events and reach out...what else can I do? What works for you?
Interviewed for a senior strategist role and as we were griping about how clients can be, I said “oh yeah well the dream job is to never work with clients again right?!” And the recruiter just got back to me that “the role requires client interaction so that’s a dealbreaker”. I feel so dumb for getting comfortable during an interview to joke like that.

I've an year experience at a legal ed tech in marketing (including content creation-both written and vocal-in form of podcasts, generating leads with the help of it, running affiliate marketing projects like Campus Ambassador Project and Referral Marketing. Also can anyone refer to a leading edu tech company? Roles like Product Manager, Relationship Manager,etc It's being difficult to find one without MBA
Is there supposed to be a process to determine if a project is a good fit? Feeling as though my firm regularly throws people onto engagements who have skillsets unrelated to what the role demands
Just got rolled off a client for dui on my background check. Is this the end of my good reputation at the firm?
I'm new to the industry and this is my first corporate job. Been working as a BI analyst for about 2.5 years and I roughly make $80k. I'm having a hard time trying to gauge how much should I be making, or if I speak to my manager about increasing compensation how much to ask for so I won't sound absurd. Do you all have any tips on this or are there any tools that I can use to accurately gauge how on average much I should be earning?

Starting from blood work to getting pregnant, if everything goes smooth what is a timeline we are looking at?
I had first round interviews Monday of last week. One went really well, the other was fine(I could have def done better). Haven't heard back yet. Does that mean I didn't make it through to next round?

Would anyone buy a restaurant? There's a decent restaurant near where I live selling for what appears to be a pretty low price (assuming due to COVID). I'm really tempted to give it a go, and I have the finances to "weather the storm" until vaccines are out. I would of course go over their books before moving forward, just curious if anyone's had a positive experience?
Mortgage rates: are these good? Trying to find the best with the lowest points. This home will be 5-7 year plan. Chase offered: 2.75% 1.57 points for 30 year or 2.8% .875 points for 30 year or 3.125%, no points for 30 year. Are these good? Gonna ask sofi next.
I am sure it’s been asked 100 times but humor me please. Best office chair to add to the good I’m doing with a stand up desk? Lol. Would love to stay in a reasonable range if possible (800 max)
Anyone here part of the Workday practice at Deloitte and willing to share info on the culture/people, pipeline, bench and expected salary for an experienced consultant?...(cont)
Hi! I want to exit out of consulting with almost 4 years under my belt. I’m mainly looking for product manager roles but debating going into SWE (after studying). I’ve applied to so many roles externally but rarely get call backs. How can I increase the number of interviews I’m getting or be seen as a competitive applicant?
What are people's thoughts on hiring freezes in the M&A/ M&A Tax space? There are salary freezes and layoffs (especially at EY Deloitte), but will a hiring freeze be put in place? No matter how (cont)
