5 minute screening call with an HR Screener, 30 minute call with Recruiter, 30 minute call with someone in the practice, and then 3 consecutive 45 minute interviews with management. I had a Manager, Director, and a Partner, and then received the offer within 72 hours.

They pretty much just ask to verify that you have a degree, that you don’t require sponsorship, and that you are okay with travel. I think every person I interviewed with KPMG asked me if I was okay with traveling.

On a hiring freeze at the moment. Likely won’t hear much of hiring until mid October is my best guess.

I’ve heard that there is still hiring but for only very specific skill sets. So if you are specialized, there’s a chance that the there could be movement on the role. Good luck!

I’m coming back to my former job after 6 months and leaving my current position in one of the most toxic places I have ever been. Never thought I could be harassed in so many ways in such short period. Gladly, I left the door and they’re taking me back. Even though it’s a huge relief, I’m worried about how to explain to my coworkers why I’m back. I’m way too vulnerable to lay out the truth. Anyone here to give me a useful tip on how to handle this?

I can honestly say that working from home these last few years has been the best thing that’s happened to my career as a producer. I never realized how distracting being in an office was. Now, I actually can focus on bidding, scheduling, reviewing contracts, and all of the stressful parts of production WITHOUT having to factor in code switching and a commute. I left my agency producer role for a fully remote producing role and I’m just….thrilled. Anyone else refuse to go back to office? 😩

I feel like I’m getting left behind at work. This girl who is my age started on the same day as me & in the same position. She seems to be doing more work and working on cooler projects than me. She’s in the office and I’m wfh bc I live w a divorced sick parent and I just generally feel insecure and that she’s getting noticed more by our boss/team. I feel like I have been raising my hand to do things and helping people out w projects/jumping on opportunities but I can’t shake this feeling. Help!

I am interested in pivoting from an agency into a traditional business consultancy role. I have start-up tech experience and four years of Strategy experience for media clients. Are there any projects folks in consulting would recommend I take on to add to build on to a resume? From the outside looking in, it seems like there is an overlap in the core competencies of a strong strategist at an agency and a consultant.
