I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card. My meal expenses are per diem so I'm thinking about the AmEx Gold card as it has 4x points on dining. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA
Thinking outside the box: need H1B renewal stamping, eligible for Dropbox in my home country. However, going there is still risky in case of a 221g and consulates closed. Can I send my passport to my home country through a friend for Dropbox stamping? Once the stamping is done, I can travel to home country (after they courier my passport back) Is this possible or am I going crazy?
Can anybody shed light on why I got bumped? I booked an award ticket (class YN), which I thought removed you from upgrade eligibility unless you have the Chase United card (have the no AF version).

Anyone given the Googlyness and Leadership interview? What kind of questions are asked?￼
I feel like I can’t redeem my career. I’ve been out of paying work since I graduated. My bar was delayed due to a medical problem and since then I’ve only been able to find volunteering. I’ve been working for free for 2 years now. My network is tapped, my mentors are confused why I can’t find anything, my law school’s career services actually gave up on me, I don’t have the money to move to a new place, I have no other support and I can’t even go back to retail because nobody’s hiring out here.
Hi Everyone! I’ve been thinking about potentially switching from HR to another field of work. I was curious to know if anyone on here started their career in Hr and ended up in a different field? Also, what field did you end up in and why did you make the change? Thanks guys!

I recently shifted my career from data analytics to strategy and feel very passionate about this field. I would love to continue growing down this path, but I’m uncertain of what next steps are, specially to continue working in tech. Would love to hear what your career path has been and if you feel like an MBA is needed in order to keep growing. Thanks!
