Oh my! I understand how this would change everything. That is a huge shift- does your kids school provide before school care? Or a neighbor who would be willing to watch them? Good luck!

How’s it been going?

I’m an S3 up for promotion next summer but I’m not sure even if the promotion will be worth it. Is it worth it to stay till the manager or is it time to jump ship.

So I actually start in advisory with a diff b 4 firm tommorow as an experienced staff, I got contacted by a company that sells accounting software mostly close automation etc. they have big clients and got series D funding, I think I’d be a good fit but I don’t know how to judge these huge life decisions when they come so quick.

Does the amount of "Breakthrough Cases" rising among those fully vaccinated make anyone... wonder? Now there's a "Delta+" variant? Now they are saying "No vaccine is 100% effective so this is to be expected"? As if we're just suppose to shrug our shoulders after they have been pressuring everyone to get the vaccine? I'm fully vaxed but I can't help but wonder... this is what the Anti-Vaxers have been warning and saying the whole time and it's making me second guess which side I'm on...


I found a dream job that I’m uniquely qualified for and applied 2 weeks ago and still haven’t heard anything. I messaged the hiring manager on LinkedIn after applying to express my interest and they said they’d pass my name onto the recruiter. Is it appropriate to find a company recruiter on LinkedIn and try to reach out as well…or should I keep waiting? I want to be proactive so I don’t miss a shot at an interview, but don’t want to come off as pushy or desperate.


What does M&A consulting at big 4 look like, especially at the entry level? All my previous experience is in audit/tax and I know nothing about consulting, just wanted to try something new. I liked my finance courses in undergrad, but not sure how relevant that is. Would I have ANY transferable skills from my accounting background? Can you explain what the work is like for a new hire? Especially if you've made a similar switch?

Thoughts on resigning before or after partner’s 4 day long weekend/ mini vacay? I wanted to do before so as to give a full month of time as I think she will really need it.

Tips? Advice?
