Okay so it’s my first week in a new career for a new company. I wanted to make a good impression so I stayed a little later to do some catch up before finding my way to a hotel (since I’m waiting for my apartment approval) but I fell asleep and woke up hours later with no one here and the lights out. I don’t want to accidentally trigger any security alarms trying to leave, but I also don’t want them to catch me spending the night here and assume the worst. How should I go about this?

Hey Fishbowl, I’m looking to pivot into consulting. I have a job interview coming up with Deloitte for an IT audit senior consultant role. Was wondering what the compensation band/salary range would be at that level? I have 5 YOE between audit and compliance and live in a HCOL city.
I have a first round McKinsey EM interview and I was told it was purely a one hour fit interview. I have already talked to another HR representative. I’ve asked around some friends at McKinsey and was told this was atypical / didn’t know what to expect. Does anyone know what type of fit questions I should be expecting? McKinsey & Company

Question for immigrating generation parents or people with traditionally conservative mindsets raising daughters in this country. How have you reconciled your traditional mindset and perhaps ideas on conservative dressing, piercings, ink etc with a daughter who is increasingly interested in it and headed into her teens. I do think body positivity is important but I'm also stuck maybe a generation behind where it comes to looking professional. What was your approach? (im the father if it matters)
