Let’s focus on the positives! What’s been happily eye opening, inspiring or motivating for you during these times?
Is anyone here an influencer manager in addition to managing their socials? I've been offered a role like this but would like to know more about it. There's some red flags for me regarding the demands on my time and very little boundaries, but it does pay a lot. Thanks!!
Anyone exit into quant finance or trading? Had more traction during undergrad but it seems consulting has made me less attractive of a candidate?
Friend has been trying to get me into Microsoft for almost a year now. Tries through the referral program and never heard anything, even a phone screen. Resume has worked for other companies. Any tips
What are some possible exit opportunities in the creative field for a tech consultant (idk if the title matters tbh lol)? I am thinking design and marketing but curious to see if others have insights!
I got referred to a role at EY and got a message from a recruiter with instructions to schedule an “on demand” interview. Has anyone heard of or done this?? Apparently I schedule a time convenient for me and it will be video recorded. The screen will pop up questions and I’ll have 30 secs to think of a response up to 3 mins long then record it. I can review my response and re-record once if needed. This seems really strange and awkward. No indication of how many questions.
What do F500 look for when hiring Chief Data/Analytics Officer positions? Would 20+ years of progressive leadership experience in consulting in this space qualify?
Capgemini opening! If interested, please send your CVs to hr.corpbrite [at] gmail [dot] com P.S. Freshers please excuse. Only experienced candidates required.
Ed Jones FAs- I saw where the firm is going to do a partnership offering next year. This is going to be my first offering (was too green last go around) and am curious as to what people around my production level have gotten in the past. I’m level 8 (700k production), about 250k in T-12 profit. I’ve served in leadership roles, including a “Key leader” role. Is thinking 40-50k offering too much?
Don’t see any job invites or referral requests here. What’s going on folks? This is the time to start the thread.
What are some interview questions you have received (or given out) for the role of senior copywriter?
I just received a first round interview for at GS for a role that seems like internal strategic finance (job description says stuff like ad hoc analysis, construct competitor analysis, etc.) however I applied for and even got a referral for an FO (non-IB) role. I’m kinda bummed they didn’t take me for the latter role but if I get the above role, is internally transferring easy? Is the role even good? For context, I’m trying to get IB/Strategy consulting roles, with LT a goal being on buyside.
Is kpmg hiring people on opt?
Interviewed for a job. Didn’t get it. A month later the Hiring Manager started liking all my tweets AND then super liked 🙄 me on tinder. Fucker
Getting recruited for great role at a fortune 50 company at VP level. While I hit all of the wickets for what they’re looking for, I can’t help but to think I may be slightly under experienced. Cont’d
I was given a verbal offer and then the media agency lost an account before I could sign an offer letter. Now there is a temporary hiring freeze. Is there any hope? I’m really sad about this.

Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...

Toxic workplace phrases and what they really mean: “Fast paced environment” = no time off and chaos “Need a self-starter” = no training but we still expect results “Must wear multiple hats” = understaffed and underpaid for amount of work “We’re like a family” = no raises
True or no?
Honestly Microsoft you’re doing amazing! Keep those servers down Monday thru Friday from 5pm-8am.
What is the worse consulting company out there in terms of culture? I want to make sure I don't fall into any trap as they tend to offer more $$$
question for women: what is your open and honest opinion when people refer to a group as “you guys” in emails/chats? I’ve been very cognizant to use gender neutral pronouns but I’m curious if anyone really cares (I understand there might be no right or wrong but I’m curious where the majority stands) Also, is it weird if I email a group with only women and say “Ladies,…” I know that sounds weird but if it’s a group of men I’ll say “Gentlemen,….”
Curious which firms have mandatory PTO at specific times of the year (ex. between Christmas and New Year's)?
I’m worried my boss knows I keep breaking into their house. Most weekday evenings my boss is out dining with clients, so like any other junior employee I take that time to enter their home and go through their stuff. Last week my boss found my ID card in their bathtub (I needed a quick wash while there). While I’m not doing anything technically wrong, I don’t want to create friction at work. Any advice?
