Any moms at kpmg take maternity leave around the time when a salary increase should be taking place (e.g. start your leave mid-september when comp increases is expect in October)? Is it worth pushing off those 4 STD weeks before the due date to get yourself the new salary before going on leave? Any other ways to get the higher salary while on leave? Does it take effect if youre using pto and not the parental leave (maybe save your primary parental leave for a day later or something)?

Switching consulting agencies atm. Currently I earn way below average at 42k€/p.a + car. Next week I am negotiating with another company wanting to employ me. I am actually bringing in a customer with a fixed 2 year project @ 1000€ all-in/day rate (5 billable days/week). What salary should I aim for - and what bonuses? I would love something around the market average of 65-75k is it realistic even though I am in my mid 20s?
Mask off: Journalist to freelance copywriter. Started working full-time under contract for an agency that won't hire me. I've freelanced for agencies and in-house marketing teams, but I'm always the outsider looking in. I want to transition to a full-time permanent gig. Interviews seem to go well, 2 agencies went to 3 interviews and nothing. I know I'm totally missing something that agency insiders would understand. Would love advice on navigating uncharted territory. Thank you!
If anyone can review my resume and provide some tips that will be truly great. Currently applying for financial analyst job, but no luck so far.

Hi! I’m a student who doesn’t go to a target school for EY-Parthenon but they are now recruiting at my campus for this year to see how it goes (I’m an undergrad). That being said, how can I better my chances of getting an interview? What should I know before going into one-on-ones or applying? I need all the help I can get!
My interview for an internship lasted over an hour. Good or bad sign? It was more of a conversation than anything...
My upcoming interview date with McKinsey conflicts with my exam, which I absolutely have to take in order to pass the class. Is there any way I can push my interview date back without jeopardizing my candidacy?
I’m applying to a program that sends students to various banks and PE firms. The entire recruitment process is highly competitive and I’m seeking advice on how to prepare/approach the interviews. I am starting the Breaking into Wall Street Guides, but am iffy on articulating technical questions in a concise way. Any advice (also regarding behaviorals and overall how to impress the admissions committee)?
What are some reasons to decline a second interview? I recently interviewed for an Internal Audit role but I didn’t feel like the pay range matched the job. This IA role is for a small credit union and you’ll be the only IA. It’s a new role they came up with this year as different departments would have a a role at different audits. Their pay range is 65K - 75K DOE.
ACN gets compensation info tomorrow for salary increases. I expect to hear a lot of joy and sorrow on FB. Good luck everyone!
QB/AAG/Gamma folks -- how'd you find benchmarks for your total comp seeing as there arent as many out there? What's the reasonable equivalent TC for A/C/SC in SEA?
Damn. Was lucky enough to land an interview. The interview went numerous rounds, it was super positive, so then I decided I would be 100% honest about something I wasn’t good at, in hopes of being clear that I was ready to grow. Then I got ghosted, and I think it’s because of the said honesty. Feeling low and stupid for ever admitting a “fault” in an interview instead of just telling them that I’m perfect.
Anyone can give some pointers for what to say for the "Why Stanford" question in the interview? higher marks for those that are weirdly specific :)

Looking for inspiration: what’s the best virtual event you’ve seen so far? (Loving random slack groups and of course Fishbowl!)
Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode. Open to suggestions or ideas. My team is spread out internationally, so even sending a stupid “swag” gift is next to impossible.

Sorry but what do the Art Directors on this app do. I always thought this app was for Big 4 and consulting firms folks.
Do you ever go through an interview totally prepared and you’re thinking “I am seriously nailing this!” And you leave it feeling super good, but you remember one thing you said that could have been misconstrued, or something you did that was maybe weird, and by the next day you just feel like you completely bombed it? No, just me? Are there any true indicators for knowing whether you did well in an interview or nah?
Got promoted but planning to put in my notice. Will I still get the promotion bonus after 2 weeks? Or should I wait till oct 15...
