My three cents:

-Arrive prepared with options/alternates for every important line.

-Pay close attention, especially when the camera is rolling.

-Do not offer opinions or concerns or alternate ideas within earshot of the clients. Bring those thoughts, quietly, to your CD.

Hi fishes, I am as SAP ABAP consultant having 5+ yrs of YOE . Please suggest me which technical skills I should have to excel in my career as a technical consultant. Please guide me how to have those.

I'm at a career juncture and have decided on a career in anti-money laundering as my new path. I'm also highly interested in additional education to further my career and am eyeing graduate school. Which is best? A law degree or a master's in international relations? Those are where my interests lie. I keep reading that JDs are valued in compliance but am wondering if a different graduate program is better for my goals. I already plan to obtain the CAMS certification. Thank you!

I don’t think the juniors are entitled, they just want to share in their firms’ wealth. Surely any salary increases for the Classes of 2019, 2020, and 2021 would easily pay for themselves through billable hours.
