Does anyone have a recommendation for someone to help me write my resume and synthesize my experiences? Been in consulting for 3 years since undergrad and want some outside perspective on potential exit opportunities. Thanks in advance!

The most helpful resume feedback I received was through from an alum of my program (this was while I was recruiting during my MBA, but you could do the same thing). He was kind enough to spend 30 min on the phone with me going through my resume. He read through each of my bullets and told me what he read. I found out that I was not communicating nearly as well as I thought I was and my experience was coming off much weaker than it actually was. I went into recruiting and got about 5x as many interviews afterwards. Having a different person's perspective - preferably someone from a target industry and who doesn't already know you well - is extremely valuable. I would look into your network and see if you can find someone like this to give you their perspective.

Thanks SC! I have a few people from industry that are willing to look it over and provide feedback/edits, just hoping for a service or person who is able to help me shape the narrative and explain my general skill set since I’m open to a lot of different things. Really hoping for someone to help clarify that jumping off point before I get individuals to help me tailor and refine my story

Rant: I interviewed at a mid size firm for Senior Tax Associate role and went really well. Partner calls after a couple days to say they want to offer me a job and asked me if I wanted senior 1 or 2. I said senior 2 since I have a years experience as a senior and she was okay with it and discussed salary. She said she will think about the final offer and let me know. A week later she comes back to tell me that my small firm experience probably won’t help much and it would be difficult for me...

Getting haunted by the fact I didn’t get promo for 2 years and just got it this year. The peer then is my (thin line) day to day reporting manager who still leans on me. While I respect her position, I’m feeling like I don’t have the independence of “running the show”. The client has been ours for over few years so I can’t even make “relationships” work. No team reports to me directly so feeling like I’m still a SC but with a title. I hate bringing low energy but what can I change about this?

Does it make sense to have a common data strategy and a single data lake across this products? What are the benefits?
