What does mentorship look like at your firm? Is it mainly business development/client acquisition or something more? I work for a partner who’s been practicing since the 70’s and can pincite from memory but I often find he’s too busy to talk for extended periods of time. I’m about 1.3 years in (2020 grad) and wondering if I’m “too junior” for some form of mentorship?

What does Product Management in the Professional Services practice of a large SaaS company do?

Any tips for prepping on a move to a new role? Starting new role at Accenture (tech delivery), coming from industry, no idea what to expect.

Don't know where to start (client work, all the new technologies used, multiple industries, pure size of the organisation). Also, should I add any of my interviewers on LinkedIn? Is that normal?

However he is not really interested in world affairs, does not follow the news closely, does not have a strong grasp
