Commercial real estate. Mehhhhh.

Deloitte1, very neat. Been very interested into digging deeper into blockchain and bitcoin payments. Recommended reads from your research?

Insurance. Not most glamorous but will always have job opportunities

OP, there's a ton. You should start by reading the higher level conceptual POVs that most consulting firms are putting out - Deloitte, McKinsey and PWC have put out some good ones, specially for financial services.. Then get deeper, read the original Bitcoin white paper, understand how a blockchain works.. And go from there

I went on a date with guy for the second time and we split the bill again.... todays bill was $28. Yes i can afford 14 dollars but i feel like he should have paid the bill as a kind gesture.When i later brought it up he said that if a woman offers to pay he sees it as her “ investing” in getting to know him. He also mentioned that all his previous girls split the bill. Am I wrong for feeling a way about that?

I always looked with curious eyes at what other consulting firms could offer in terms of pay, prestige and advancement, but I'm no longer curious after seeing how other firms have handled this pandemic *cough cough* Deloitte.

I'm so happy to be at EY and not elsewhere. Happy I made the right choice.

Hi Ladies - Trying to decide when to officially go on leave. I was thinking two weeks before I’m due but everyone keeps telling me to work up until the due date to have more time at the end with the baby. I’m honestly just tired of working and barely get any sleep at this point. Wouldn’t mind having some me time (I have 5 months leave) but also realize the baby could come early. Let me know your thoughts!
