Anyone take SHRM? How many hours did you study?
My management brag about how little PTO they take - it makes me not look up to them but rather pity them & think I'm in the wrong firm. No one regrets the days they didn't work on their death bed.
Anyone feel almost shamed or snarky comments are said when you do your job or don’t slack like some of the coworkers? I don’t want to be rude but also want to let them know it’s not cool.
Interview Question: Understanding how many layers we usually have for interviews, how do you flex yourself when you are pitching the professionals to get the position? Do you usually repeat the same history told on the previously round or try to present “new assets”?
Are you finding it easy or challenging to translate your "in person" lessons to an online format?
Is it easier/harder to recruit for mckinsey implementation vs a generalist role for mba full time recruiting? I kinda like ops work, but wondering if there's any issues with supply & demand re: hiring.
Whats the deal on rebounds? Managers who left right before being made senior manager? What do those guys call themselves and more importantly what role should them aim for?
How do you respond to co workers asking for your help while you are on maternity leave? It’s regarding project work that you transitioned over. My maternity leave is also unpaid.
Any insight into Mastercard Advisors? Have a new grad opportunity there. My start date at a B4 strat got postponed so decided to interview around. I'm interested in data + analytics and would want to go into industry eventually, but conflicted because unlike BA programs at CapOne or Visa, you're still working for an external client. Feel like there will be a broader variety of projects in B4 and while I'm casually interested in fintech, I don't want to get pigeonholed in FS so early on
If you get an offer a few days before you have a final interview (or while you're waiting to hear back), is it okay to ask for some time? Or do they expect you to answer right there? i'm in the final round for 2 different media positions in 2 completely different places (NYC and NC) and things are moving really quickly for both. the NYC job is my dream one but they're both offering $40k so i'm conflicted. any advice would be helpful lol

3.3 GPA in CS, 760 GMAT, Deloitte internships - should I bother applying to deferred MBAs? Or do I not have a shot?
I work in a group that has had to come in to the office regularly during COVID (lots of work with original documents and wet ink signatures). It’s real estate and title companies still require wet ink documents. One junior has refused to come in because he says he’s concerned about COVID. We all wear masks, close our doors, and socially distance. We’ve all had to pick up the slack for him. Just found out he’s taking his second vacation during COVID and visiting family in FL. I could scream.
M&A tax professionals - has anyone leveraged their M&A background to get into a top mba program after 4-5 years of work experience and completed a career change?
Do travel insurances like Atlas cover coronavirus ? My MIL was visiting us when this thing kicked up and her flight back is cancelled and insurance is till 31. Wondering if i should...
Mother superannuated today and was able to watch her farewell speech. Feeling very emotional (i.e. tearing up at midday) as I recall our humble beginnings and how much my middle class family has sacrificed and achieved. My parents sent their only daughter for higher education abroad and it is tough to see them grow old. Getting exposed to so many new facets of life as a 25F…. just one of those days. Kind words only please 🙏
I have been pursuing a job at a certain firm for over a year. They initially rejected me, but then offered me a job after I had already accepted and started at another firm. Well now I have been laid off and I reached back out to this firm. They called me 4 weeks ago and asked me a few questions, asked about my requested salary and mentioned a possible interview. Now it has been radio silence for 4 weeks. Should I just keep waiting?
Looking to start a new hobby, anyone have any recommendations for guitar lessons and maybe a couple singing lessons?
