Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories. I started as a C at 29 (yes, unfortunately, I fall into the bucket of exp hire hired at a lower level...), made M at 33. Doing well but also feeling like I’m already too old to aim to be a P. Hoping for some perspectives.
Interviewing with BCG next week. Approximately how many questions would be asked in the 25 minute fit portion? My interviewer has an interesting hobby (from the bio provided) that I want to ask about, but I don’t want to impede on any behavioral questions that need to be asked
Anyone got recommendations for fantastic immigration lawyers in CA? My fiancé is on a green card (2 years away from citizenship) and would like to have his elderly parents join us here in the US (they’re currently on visitor visa) 🙏🏻
Ive never been one for activist investing but at this point buying GME and BB is the best middle finger you can give to wall street. If your broker doesnt allow it try Chase YouInvest (free trades, not sure about fees for options however)
If you could work remotely full time and live anywhere in the US where would you choose to live? (Assuming all visa hassles addresses around proximity to office etc)
I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
Anyone successfully convinced a US employer to sponsor your H1B when the company traditionally does not sponsor? How do you do that?
When based in a city like NYC with multiple hubs, how do you think about the airline to chase loyalty on?
Hi fellow immigrants. My partner and I are in the process of getting a visa, and we need an agent and as many contacts as possible for intent letters. Anyone that can offer some help? We're experience enough, hot agencies, hot cities, live work, real interest from NY agencies... Is just that we don't know people in the US yet. Any help would be appreciated.
My fiancé is on H1-b and his parents’ US tourist visa expired. Is there any way to expedite the visa process so that they can come to US for marriage functions? I am a US citizen if that helps at all.
How do you keep from getting discouraged while job hunting? I’ve had 3 final round interviews in the past month and gotten passed over each time. Their reasoning is always “we went in a different direction”. Each of the interview processes was 4-5 interviews so it’s a big time commitment and really gotten my hopes up each time.
Who did the amex spots with the violinist and the people all shot from behind? That's not Ogilvy, is it?
Hi all I just got my H1B very recently and don’t know much so please be patient with me! I am planning to travel from Chicago to Baltimore just Monday - Thursday and only for next week. Do I need to file an LCA and have it approved before going? It is obviously not going to get approved in time so this is more a “should I cancel my trip” question
Morning All! Any advice for how to get a job at Barkbox—what they’re looking for or a contact to reach out to? Ive applied a few times in the past but never even get to the interview stage. They’re hiring again, figured I would ask some advice. Thanks!
Hi folks, given difficulty in getting visa stamping done in India at the moment, any thoughts on getting it stamped in Canada? Any risks I should be aware of? (I have always gotten my stamping done in India in the past) Thank you.
My Mom is traveling first time with me to India and I want her to feel the luxury and all benefits of United Airlines. If anyone has Global do you mind upgrading Mom's seat? Would be really appreciated :-)
Having a hard time emotionally...project started pre-covid and I was told it will be about identifying process improvement opps within supply chain. Then ends up becoming this whole headcount reduction initiative! I feel so sad 😕 this is not why I joined this practice. Idk how do I cope? Please don’t say things like grow thicker skin, it’s our job.
So I've seen a number of articles floating around recently saying all Americans (not just the priority groups) could get the covid-19 vaccines by April. Thoughts on whether that is actually highly likely? I initially thought end of 2021 was more likely, but perhaps I should be more optimistic?
Hey 🐠, what are your recommendations of books, articles, or practice tips to improve communication, both verbal and written?
What are some cons of working at MBB? Bad work life balance is probably the biggest but ‘what else’?
Cam anyone DM me Deloitte supplemental benefits doc? Planning to join in few weeks and onboarding team not responding
Do you also hate "sandwich feedback" (praise, criticism, praise)? I know it's part of western culture. But clear and direct feedback should be enough. Working 12 hours a day, no one should have to waste time on this.
I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.
Does anyone have thoughts of Kelly's latest video indicates that more people could be up for agile promotion next year?
I need to travel to India for my sisters wedding in November. I also need to get H1B stamping done for first time. In India only emergency appointments are available. What should I do?
Does IBM GBS provide reimbursement for WFH setup ? I heard there will be 45k balance per employee where we can claim broadband and other expenses through bond portal. Can anyone throw some light on this if you have any idea ?
Thoughts on targeting a super small area? I have a client in the Detroit Area who just wants to target ONE suburb for a specific campaign.
Got an offer with Microsoft for L60 recruiter.Any idea on the salary ranges for the same and also around the work culture.Will help in my decision making.
Layoff news from Deloitte! Is there a pattern?
I’m interviewing for BCG and had a principal reach out to me for a zoom chat. Is this normal for principals to reach out or is this a positive sign?
I work in a Rep Services Call Center for an Insurance/ Investment Company. Currently I'm pursuing my MBA at Western Governors University and I plan to get my Series 7 after my MBA so I can get out of the Call Center and advance my career. I'm looking for some advice / guidance/ideas for growth opportunities from here. I'd like to hear about good experiences and bad experiences people have had in this industry, where did you start, how did you grow from there, what licenses do you have, ect.
How are people "networking" now that we are wfh? I mean, you are barely even aware if people still work in the same company. Previously, you at least saw them every now and then at the office but now... They could have fired half the company and I wouldn't know
Had a lateral interview that seemed to go well, with an invite for a second interview just 4 days later. Said they'd be in touch. After one week I followed up writing sample. They thanked me and said they'd be in touch "next week" (which was this last week). Never heard back. Any advice on what to do next? Don't want to be annoying, and don't know what a typical time-frame is.
Apply your skills to create positive behavior change and social impact. We are hiring a strategist/comms planner for a public health marketing agency based in San Diego. I’ve been with the agency for years and love the brain candy. Always a good challenge to dig into. Role will focus mainly on substance use prevention - ranging from fentanyl, meth, alcohol, marijuana for teens, etc. Ideally seeking candidates working in Pacific time, but recruiting nationally. Agency experience a plus! https://rescueagency.com/careers/position-description?gnk=job&gni=8a7887ac77831b52017784299090435c
