My counselor was a little older, so it felt awkward at first for me , too. But she was responsive to the texts and it was good for a quick tip or quick accountability/reminder for coping tools. Give it a try!


Yep I do it all the time! And my therapist responds pretty quickly and it’s so helpful to text.

Hello Bainees 🐠 I was invited to attend a Bain London “Curious about Consulting” event 2 weeks ago, after a CV submission, and given particular timeline to apply and interview dates. And I have strong reason to apply to London (used to work and live in London, currently based in Paris) On the other hand, a good friend who is a Manager at Bain’s Helsinki office is willing to refer me to Bain’s Stockholm office. But I have a relative weaker reason there. What do you suggest? Bain & Company

Just drop everything into ARKK and grind at work to get more capital to dump more into ARKK. Their methodology works and is basically what we all want to do but maybe don't have the time to do.

I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting). Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued

Hey everyone! Second year Deloitte analyst and I’ve been interviewing elsewhere, like many others. Just got told from the recruiter that I will be getting an offer from Apple as a Program Manager in San Jose (big jump lol). Right now I’m living in a MCOL city working remote, but I would need to move for this role (eventually lol). Any ideas on comp, living costs, etc. would be greatly appreciated. I’ve never been out to San Jose or San Francisco, so I’d appreciate any advice or DMs of any sort! Deloitte
