Colleague got chosen for a project and I heard through the grapevine that he was the “only junior employee considered for it.” As another junior employee, how do I phrase my feedback question to essentially ask “why wasn’t I chosen?” I honestly care less about the project itself and more about why they didn’t think I would be able to do it

It’s not why wasn’t I chosen It’s not about them You should ask, what can I do to be selected for x-type of projects in the future. Don’t compare yourself to others. It doesn’t do you any good and honestly it sounds petty coming out.

Hi guys, I am due to start working at EY soon within audit. I will be commuting to the office by train when in the Birmingham office. This will be from Leicester. Usually if a commute is about 1.5 hours+, Mazars authorises hotels. Is there a similar policy at EY? When not in the office I would prefer to drive to clients, not sure if me being in Leicester affects whether they will tell me to suck up an extended commute? Would a mileage claim be from the office to the client? Thanks!

When is it time to go client side from agency? I’m not looking for a new role but a contact has a contract to full time placement that is for a stable company and sounds like a significant pay raise. My current agency has good benefits, I liked the work pre-covid. Now raises and promotions are paused, and they’re very hesitant to hire with no end in sight. I’m not sure it’s worth it to hang around.

I feel like there is an easier way to do this on line learning. Same grade teachers at the same school should be one big group. For example: One teacher has the discussion or lecture and does the presentation to all classrooms. One teacher mans the computer to answer questions that come in and handles any tech issues. Another teacher grades assignment and takes role and handles the admin part. Wouldn’t this be easier? Teachers could rotate or just stay in one role.
