Anyone here consider (or actually) take a Coronavirus distribution for their 401k (assuming you meet the vague requirements for one) of up to 100k (no 10% penalty, three years to roll into another plan (can be IRA-roth or non Roth) and counted as a trustee to trustee transfer (no one per year IRA rollover issues)?
Thoughts on using this as an opportunity to get $100k out of the 401k and into accounts you want to increase investment flexibility (and broker account bonuses)?
What’s the best work out of Singapore this year?
What's the differences between working at ServiceNow Global Elite partners like Deloitte, DXC, IBM, KPMG versus Elite partners like GlideFast, Infosys, Cognizant, Thirdera, Crossfuze, Highmetric, etc.? Do you feel being treated like a person at smaller companies (Elite partners) rather than just a number at bigger companies (Global Elite)? Do smaller fishes (Elite) lose more big contracts to big fishes (Global Elite)? I'm considering a change and don't know which companies to choose.
Has anyone bought a property recently in downtown Toronto? I'm running the numbers with my GF and can't seem to make the numbers make sense...the returns are slightly higher than inflation in our various scenarios (~4%). Not sure how it makes financial sense to buy here...

I want to move from Credit Risk to IB. Do you know anyone who has done this before? Or have tips?
I honestly feel my short term memory is just absolute trash. I can still think quickly on my feet with say quick mental math or new info, but retaining non-intuitive info like remembering how to do some admin tasks or even remembering what I did yesterday. Anyone experience anything similar or have tips? I hope this isn’t a long term thing but idk how to train my memory skills
When someone offers to introduce you to someone in their network, do they ask for your resume as well, or just set up the intro without your resume? Just curious. I hear differing views - some people say your resume is confidential and shouldn’t be shared for networking calls and some say it is a must. Would you ask for someone’s resume to set up an intro call to an MD?
Does anybody have any noteworthy experience with EC M&A in New York?

I'm currently working at a major IB's back office. How do I upskill myself (without an MBA) to get ready for front end IB and PE roles?
I’m a first year associate, updating my CV these days. It looks very wordy and detailed and if I try to kill some bullet points, they all seem important enough to be in there. Will someone working as an IB associate, be kind enough to share their CV after hiding their personal details, of course? Will help me big time. TIA :)
Looking to lateral to GS Tech from a boutique. Anyone know of openings or can push resume along? Applied online to most BBs and heard back from all except for Goldman Sachs
I'm at a smaller MM bank. My original goal was to start here and hustle through into a BB, but I wasn't expecting to really like the people (my team, my direct seniors). I think the work we do probably wouldn't differ a crazy amount (we close deals, just smaller of course) and I'm wondering if I really have a reason to try to move into a bigger bank.
Has anyone made the switch to software engineer at a tech firm? Idk if I could do this life anymore lol
What’s the best lateral analyst candidate look like? 1 year of experience, 2+ years? Really been trying to network and make a push as I’m trying to move over as early as possible so I’m am curious to hear some insight. And obviously I realize I’m dumbing it down by just looking at length of exp. here
Anyone has any insights or comments on City Capital in Chicago? I know the founders were from William Blair…
Currently in Corp Dev. and have worked closely with senior bankers on a number of projects. I’m interested in moving into the banking side. Is there anything wrong with reaching out for informational interviews if my team is a current client?
I joined KPMG’s Deal Advisory practice straight from college and am approaching my 6 month mark here. I want to jump over to IB, realistically targeting an MMIB. That said, what would be some ways to present myself as a strong candidate over someone coming in from a tiny boutique shop? I know that modeling, BIWS 400, and networking is key, but I’m not sure what else to do to stand out. Also is CPA even worth it? Would love to hear from y’all, esp from former FDD/B4 folks that made it.
