Your job is to really listen and obtain their trust. I don’t prepare at all for first appointments. They should leave liking you because you’re a likeable trustworthy person. If you start with Beta and Sharpe ratios you’ll lose them pretty quickly. I don’t research how to fix a car before I get my car fixed. I need to trust the guy or I don’t. Take good care of me put my interests first and don’t rip me off. This is always true

Hey all - I am at a regional firm in the northeast (300 employees) that recently started a search to include permanent remote, full time or part time roles in every facet of our tax group. We honestly are growing quickly (below average turnover) and just need more good people as our client base grows. Good management, very fair compensation, and an actually flexible work environment (we have quite a few part time / reduced hours) and advancement opportunities... Give me a shout!

Those working in consulting at big 4..are you constantly seeing yourself working 50+hrs during Covid and just being told to keep doing it? To what extent can we push back? Just because we are home doesn’t mean we don’t have family obligations as well... expectations up front are never communicated so I don’t find out I’ll be working long until I start a new client....meanwhile many colleagues are working 40hrs consistently but pay is same.... not a complainer but something’s gotta give
