CONSULTING TO INDUSTRY : LOWERING THE BAR? I have an offer from industry, moving to Europe (Scandinavia), but I'm getting the feeling that I'll be devaluing or losing my standard, because the role is naturally not that dynamic as in consulting. Am I thinking right? Or am I thinking too much? Current 9 yoe in solid Tech & Management Consulting in India.

Moving to Scandinavia sounds excellent. That’s what I came to say.

Yeah. Take a chance. I was always very adventurous at your age. Loved to travel and do new things. If you don’t like you can come back. But it may also open up new opportunities.

Take the offer - you won’t regret. Make sure they pay first year housing, $20,000 relocation costs, signing bonus, and 4x your India salary

It’s a big move, and a negotiation, I would ask now for a signing bonus (you can let them name the amount if you’re shy) and for 90 days of stay rather than 45. If you’re shy then ask for 60.

You’re right. But my sense is you moved to industry for WLB or other reasons 🤷🏼‍♀️

As an immigrant to the US, I worked before for a couple of years in Oslo. Loved every minute of it and kinda miss it now but made US my new (permanent) home. A few positive things off the top of my head: - great English skills everywhere - started around 8:30, lunch at 11am (which was a shock to me as it seemed early), everyone out at 4pm - great work ethics - people were very welcoming - summer vacations were typically 1.5 mths long Some negatives: - annoying winters, most evenings the streets were completely empty - everything is expensive (good salaries though) -taxes

Currently in a full time role at an RPO but have a potential offer in house on a 6-9 month contract with strong possibility of conversion at Hubspot. Pay is $15k higher than I make now. Would it be a bad decision to take the contract / contract to hire? I don’t doubt my ability to get converted, but the entire market is seeing huge layoffs so it makes me a little nervous. Thoughts?

A recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn about an open remote EA role at his company. Fast forward, the recruiter tells me that leadership now wanted an EA that was in-person. I’m disappointed bc I wasn’t even looking for a new role when he reached out and was excited about the possible new opportunity. Has anyone successfully countered a company’s decision with reasons why a remote EA works just as well as an in-person one?
