Might be a silly question, but have to ask since the actual value of EY-Hult MBA seems so small...does EY provide the raise you would expect with getting an MBA if you complete that program? I would assume they have to, but that you wouldn’t get MBA pay if you moved to another firm afterwards?

So like many others, I’ve gained a lot of weight in the past few months 😭. I’ve always hated eating salads and veggies in general (guess my picky eating habits from childhood never subsided🤦🏻‍♀️). That is, until my friend introduced me to this salad dressing. I’m telling you now I look forward to eating salad for lunch! Hopefully it’ll help some of the salad-haters here too (just try not to add too much lol)

I’ve been in strategy (social and Comms) for 8 years — with each move up, I feel myself getting farther and farther away from the creative process, which is my favorite part of my job.

What roles are there that straddle strategy/creative? Is there a way to transition to a creative position — and what does that look like? From everything I’ve seen, it seems like I would have to start over at entry level Copywriter and a lateral move to a comparable Creative position is non-existent?

Hi everyone. English is my second language. I understand the language, I can write relatively well, but I struggle when speaking. I'm not at all an elegant speaker. I sound so un-smart when I speak during meetings 🥺

Impromptu speaking is a nightmare. I struggle to find the right words for even the simplest things. I struggle to translate my thoughts into words.

I'm looking for advice on how to improve, or even book and course recommendations on how to become more articulate.
