Depends on your race/gender

Disagree. I got a near full scholarship from 2 M7s as a half Asian male with a 740 and 3.85 gpa. Did not have stellar extracurricular, but put a lot of personalization into the essays

I have round 2 interviews coming up with Kearney for an Associate role within the Strategic Operations practice.

Aside from Kearney expecting the candidate to lead the case. 3) I've heard cases are mostly Operations oriented. Is that true? Thank you in advance

#advice #mentorship #creativedirectors Hello, business owners and creative community leaders. Since moving to SW Florida end of 2019, professional life has been a f*ckin doozy (for many of us.)

Feeling defeated, frustrated — bang head here! Any mentors / leaders that can advise a renewed jump to restart? Thank you in advance.

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
