First week at new job and I find that 4 of the 5 member panel that interviewed me don't work with the firm (non F500 CorpDev) anymore. It's only been 2 days here and I'm expected to get the job done and take lead on new deals since they're understaffed and have multiple competing investment opportunities. While I don't mind putting in the hours, I feel kinda less confident about the team as a large reason for me to join the firm were these people that don't work here anymore (all ex MBB/IB)

BIPOC who started working in healthcare advertising and eventually were able to leave, how’d you do it? My spec book gets me interviews for junior and mid copywriter positions, but when they ask me what kind of work I’m doing at my current agency, the whole conversation goes south. They either become immediately disinterested, or beam up and suddenly the interview is only about an open pharma role, which is more frustrating because if I want to stay in health I’d go for copy supervisor roles.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

So it pisses me off that they shot their mouth off about how great year last year was...cont
