I just realized people with MBAs don’t really know things…worked with an AC without a MBA vs a C with a MBA.
The former was acting as a mentor and the latter needed help aligning boxes. What is going on here 💀 pls fix

Exploring solutions consultant role at L4, 4 yoe in mgmt consulting incl MBA:
Q1. How operational are the responsibilities? Have heard about having to meet targets for number of tickets resolved. Concerned that it's all about executing vs delivering long-term impact
Q2. Does the role provide enough transferrable skills, given the area is in ads policy? Is it too niche / limiting in terms of internal transfer for example?
Would welcome any insights, particularly from ex consultants, thanks!

Should I get an MBA? Would it be useful in the future if I'm a manager and potentially thinking to leave in the future?
Applying for open positions seems like an exercise in futility this summer. I took a non-teaching (but still education related) position when COVID-19 hit because our hiring at my district stopped and contracted due to funding. Now that we're gearing up for the fall, I've applied to all open positions within my certification, and so far not one single request for an interview and 2 pos closed. A colleague at my current job applied to two, and got a job offer within two weeks. I have an MEd?
I'm 28 yrs old (MBA) with 4 years experience working in the industry and 1 year in advisory. Got reached out by a recruiter for a manager position at another big 4 (thought they wanted me as senior consultant) . I feel flattered and humbled. Most managers I've worked with are 5-10 years older than me. So I started to question if I'm experienced enough to try for this position. How old were you when you became a manager?
Hi all, I am trying get into consulting from industry. I have a masters deg. No MBA. Should I approach the recruiter for a business analyst role or should I target associate role? I have about 4 yoe but I don’t wanna hurt my chances by directly applying for associate role . Any advice?
Question on Wharton - do you all think Wharton these days prefers people with some sort of tech background and entrepreneurship goals post MBA? I’m imagining W is trying to catch up with H/S on tech and entrepreneurship fronts but it’s just my guess.
A follow up question - is entrepreneurship truly not competitive at W?
Thoughts on Corporate Venture Capital after MBA? What are some good places usually recruiting on campus?
Everyone looking for that new industry. I think I’ve found it! They need better ads and F&B needs consulting.
Big 4, Accenture, etc. - are they allowing negative covid tests to go into the office as a substitute to proof of vaccination? Or requiring a negative test in addition to proof of vaccination?
That awkward moment in the elevator when you're not sure if he's going to be a gentleman and let you go first or if he's going to charge out before you.

If I want to create a unique (non-stock) shampoo bottle in 3D so I can apply the graphics I designed, what is the easiest Adobe product to use? Need something LIKE a CAD app but very simple since I am NOT a 3D designer.
Am willing to accept there is no perfect answer but I'd like somewhere to begin my research.
I’m 20+ years in and at a professional crossroads. Looking for recommendations on trusted career coaching firms that can evaluate my skills and experience profile to explore best fit for next 20+?
AITA? My brother who would help me hide a body but is also known to enjoy a minor scheme asked me to sign a blank piece of paper and send it to him so he could put it on a doc as a witness. Continued
My college best friend just lost her mother after her second battle with cancer. She lost her father to cancer in college, and all I can think about is the daily struggle I helped her with and how alone she must be feeling (even with siblings).
30 years old now and she lives across the country. Anyone have ideas of things that I could do to be supportive? Already sent flowers.
