I don’t even know what to say during my job interviews anymore. Do they want my “story” or just how I can make them money...
Dear Every Agency, For BHM, instead of your daily ‘famous blacks’ postings, post profiles of your black employees. If you can’t fill up the month, stop pretending you care about D&I.
where do you invest additional cash? Consider you max out on 401K? Not interested in equity markets, CD rates are too low....any suggestions? what percent of returns are decent?
How do you find time to recruit / interview while working full-time? I’m trying to leave asap but am struggling to find time to interview and prepare for interviews.
For those who have leased cars before... would you do so again? Paid off my 2nd car but considering a luxury car as my next vehicle. Is leasing then swapping b4 it's old a good strategy?
Looking for some advice from fellow fishes here. How important do you all think it is to have a second baby ? We have a 2 year old now and we are trying for our 2nd. We have been trying for over a year now and started fertility treatment recently. I am not looking forward to IUI, IVF etc especially since we don’t have any much help and my husband and I both have full time jobs. Is it a deal breaker for our kid not to have a sibling ? Is it going to be worth the pain to go through fertility?
How are industry case study interviews compared to consulting firms? Also, what would you consider to be a “math case”? This is for a strategy analyst position in industry.
Okay MBB, serious talk. What do you do in your Sustainability Consulting? What sort of candidates are recruited?
for the Audit SMs out there.. hard to relay my question so I will just shortly tell story.. worked B4 1.5 years then moved to top 10 firm.. made Sr Mgr in Oct 2015 and was high performer (cont)
Which Big 4 firm will be first to cut U.S. salaries? Will it happen tomorrow night, Sunday night or Monday? It's coming people it's most definitely coming.
Any fish with experience moving to an internal, non-consulting role with their firm and have an opinion on making the move now? Would be promotion (which I am unlikely to get in my area of the org due to freezes) but very aware of the old adage “if it’s not billable, it’s killable.” No layoffs yet and no pressure for me to move out of consulting, but this may be an option to level up and maybe have a better exit in 18 months. Thoughts?
Frustrating to find out an old college friend you coached pre-interview ended up rejecting the EY offer.. only because I found out via LinkedIn versus an email thank you follow up
How is Industry compared to Consulting? Worklife balance, workload, and culture wise. I keep hearing it’s better, but is that truly the case?
Received an offer from one firm. Another firm I am interviewing with this week just asked the details of the other offer. What should I disclose ?
What’s a good place to start to help prepare for interviews? Should I apply to a few jobs I might not take to get good practice? Or do I just jump right in for my dream roles?
Flight is delayed 3 hours from DFW to ATL and it’s not related to Florence. This is ridiculous. So if anybody wants to hang out at DFW tonight...
Mom likes Maya Dirado, keeps sending me jobs at McK. My response: I'd only get in with an MBA, Stanford undergrad, or Olympic gold. Her: don't sell yourself short, experience counts!...Expert mom-ing.
