How to set yourself up to get fired.

Your contract for the full time role likely has a clause that says you can’t work another job. Most do.

Definitely look though because mine doesn’t. It actually says you can take work “after hours” incase you have other interests.

read your contract

Contract says no but them greenbacks say “oh hell yes.”

I’ve done it a few times. It’s tiring but the extra $ to me was worth it. The scheduling meetings in the middle of your work day was the toughest part to navigate if you don’t tell the freelance gig you have a full-time gig. Just get up early & work late.

TO THE STRATEGISTS crafting your next big brief: how about we do something else besides “Inspiring You to be the Best You, Also Passion.” Maybe show your client the FIFTY other companies doing that exact strategy, and tell them not everything can be inspiring. Toyota for instance—not inspiring. Yogurt—not inspiring. How about we not inspire any “passions” or build any “worlds around you” for a while—give it a rest, maybe THINK OF SOMETHING ELSE and see how it goes?

Hi fishes.. Advice required since I am confused. Profile - MBA from one of the IIMs, Deloitte S&O, total and post mba experience = 2 I am getting an industry offer for 34 LPA which I feel is huge considering my experience and role also seems good. My only confusion is that I feel if I stay in Deloitte for 1-2 more years, I might be able to switch to MBB or Kearney. I always wanted to try the client site lifestyle and might get better exit opportunities after that. What should I do? Thank you.
