My brethren In Deloitte Canada, do you guys travel or is it mostly that Toronto folks work in and around Toronto?

The latter - and yourself?

I worked with a Canadian citizen but this person works for the US firm (Consulting)

OP - I travel every week.

Hi All - I have upcoming final rounds with Deloitte Strategy (Transformation Strategy & Design): 1 case, 2 behavioral. I feel a little under qualified. I’m coming from a non-Big 4 Advisory group. I’ve had the fortunate opportunities to work on strategic cost transformations, capacity modeling, and digital roadmap projects, but can’t help but feel like they’ll be questioning my legitimacy. Any tips or good vibes would be appreciated.

Coming from a big 4 - Can we mention the names of the clients we have worked with over the years when interviewing? I am at a boutique agency now working with some people who came from Accenture and some other consulting companies and I noticed that they will reference their clients by brand name. If it is a past project and you do not give any client sensitive information is it OK to share the names of the brands that you've worked with in your previous role? What's standard?

Should I make the move from ATL to NYC? 24 and I’ve always had a dream of living there in my 20s. I’m analyst with 1 YOE and think I could get support for the transfer itself. My hesitation stems from HCOL… I don’t have any debt and have a substantial cushion in savings (lived at home the past year) but the idea of spending ~2k rent is intimidating. I will spend ~$1.2k in atl for rent. My income in MCOL is $65k. Should I bite the bullet or wait 1-2yrs for a salary increase before going to HCOL?

I don't know why this is the case and maybe it's just my agency but it seems like the people who are most eager to send out "internal trend email digests" be it cultural trends, social media changes, creative inspiration or whatever always seem to be people who are grossly failing in the primary role they were hired for.

Any insight into Mastercard Advisors? Have a new grad opportunity there. My start date at a B4 strat got postponed so decided to interview around.

Feel like there will be a broader variety of projects in B4 and while I'm casually interested in fintech, I don't want to get pigeonholed in FS so early on
