Just lateraled and looks like I’ll be taking on a sizeable privacy practice from an associate who left recently. Any benefit to CIPP and CIPM training/certification as a lawyer? In DC if that matters.
2 YOE at a T2 strategy firm. Would jumping to a MBB boost M7 MBA apps two years down the road? Has anyone does and if yes, what was your story?
How many years of experience does one need for a Consultant role at Parthenon these days? No-MBA.
Engaging in dumb hypotheticals but I'm curious: At 1 YOE post-MBA, would you pick Amazon or MBB if the estimated TC is the same, and you've been working in consulting since your MBA? Obviously this depends on the role, but for the sake of a broader audience, we'll assume the role simply isn't a backwater contracting/etc. role at Amazon and that for MBB it's core consulting. Like an option below & comment your thoughts.
Does anyone know any jobs in the Texas area for IT support? I am an entry level professional and I have a clearance. Also, have Azure certification. But it is hard to find a job in Texas that’s paying worth while.

What is your recommended GMAT study prep materials and recommended study time? Target schools would be part time MBA at Berkley, UCLA, or Northwestern.
I’m struggling to see the value of a MBA as a consultant. If you come back to consulting, you lose career progression. You can’t really go to PE/VC from MBA with a consulting background only. A MBA will not help you get any job in tech any more than your consulting experience would. Same with industry jobs. What’s the value other than a free 2 year party/networking session assuming you return to your firm?
Thoughts on the Quantic School for MBAs - I like the concept of a cheap part-time MBA, but will it be of any benefit in moving up early in my career / reputable? Currently a project manager in big tech.
Need to recertify my AWS-SAA cert. any recommendations on best resources given the new test format (SAA-CO2)?
Is it possible to move into Management consulting roles without an MBA? If yes, which companies can I apply to?
Are qualifications/certifications (scrum, lean six sigma, BCS BA, Prince 2) seriously considered when applying for new roles,pay increase and promotion? In other words is it worth the time to attain these? Obviously I understand experinace is most important but just wondered if certifications help with advancement in roles, pay,promotions etc
Returning to B4 firm post-MBA in a few months - I was thinking I'd like to start reaching out to some of the contacts I'd networked with last summer to see what they're up to / what projects they have pending. Just wondering if this makes sense or if it'd be more annoying than anything. Thanks
Hey fam. Appreciate your inputs on this: I used to be a software developer and currently work as a tech risk consultant (CISA, CRISC certified). Have completed a couple of cyber courses but do not have prior cyber experience. Most cyber sec job postings require prior experience in cloud, aws, devops etc. Applied to a couple of roles but no avail. A) Can I start a career in cyber security without prior experience? B) Will CISSP or relevant cyber certifications help?

Any self employed people (I’m a sole trader since May 2021) in the US with suggestions for disability insurance policies? I would want one that pays to 65 with inflation adjustments.

Hi! Currently interviewing at Accenture and was wondering the required utilization/billable hours for their federal practice. (Would probably come in at the “consultant” level). Thanks!
Any Slalom Boston folks out there? I’m interested in networking. I know the recruiter very well from the Hartford office and have been connected to the Boston recruiter. More so looking to chat with current employees rather than recruiters as there is a hiring freeze.
Been posting my more expensive watches here, but what do we think about this? Cannot afford the Double Red Sea Dweller lol, but this does a good job of giving me the feel of it. Robust and Good Movement though !! Thoughts?

What do you actually spend 10+ hours a day doing as a strategy consultant? Meetings, expert interviews, excel modeling?
at what point should you inform your project you’re wanting to roll-off? do you wait to secure a role on a different project? or do you inform them you’re looking to leave - so that you can inform potential projects when you’re actually coming available?
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
Ever since we had our first child, I have come to realize that I’ve been in an abusive relationship. She verbally abuses me and there were also times where I was physically hurt. Her reactions and emotions are so extreme, she estranged me several times and for several months for the smallest disagreements. I’m thinking to file for a divorce but really feel like giving it sometime to heal over the damage first and then figure out the logistics.
