Does EY GDS allows internal transfer to countries like Canada and the US. Although, I understand that technically these countries have different entities such as EY Canada and EY US but do they provide any help here?
Let's say I get the Canada PR myself, will my manger at EY GDS recommend me to EY Canada? That won't be an internal transfer but still will be helpful enough to get a job once I move to Canada?

I am considering switching to tech sales. Currently I am in an Account Executive type role for a Recruiting company. Was curious to know more about BDR/SDR KPI expectations and if it would be better to start a career with a large company or mid sized company within the space.

I was thinking HR software would be the logical transition for me but I would also be interested in selling Sales Intelligence software.

Any insight would be appreciated!

I’m depressed. Nothing unique about my depression - I’m in big law, my career defines me, when I’m not working I can’t find the will to get off the couch, I’m sad or I’m numb…I know I’m the only one that can make a change to my life…I’m on antidepressants. Just extremely unmotivated and paralyzed. Self-help books are not for me, but I am curious - has anyone tried a guided depression/anxiety journal? Any recommendations if so? Or, if you have experienced the same, what steps did you take?

I’ve been in a major struggle lately. The past 4 years I’ve had brain surgery, cousin committed suicide, mother had a stroke, and my grandmother fell and landed on her head last week. After my surgery, I was diagnosed with depression, OCD, PTSD, and severe anxiety. I’m officially epileptic and now limited to what I can do outside. Point is, it has been so hard to focus on work but I really do enjoy my job. I’ve had seizures on and off lately. Any advice?
