Struggling to plan long-term for my career. How did you manage waves of recessions and layoffs?
How close am I to seeing an offer letter assuming all thing’s go well? For context, I was laid off a month ago so I’m starting to get really anxious now.
With the 1st company, I just completed a panel interview after having an interview with the hiring manager and completing a take home assignment. Will hear back next week.
More details of other interview processes in comments due to character limit on post.

I wish Ad salaries were like NBA salaries. Each year you get a ridiculous raise no matter how shitty you perform. If you are good you get bird rights and no layoff clauses. And retire at 35.
I am observing that in layoffs.. The percentage of non tech guys affected are more than tech.
Is there a specific reason?

hi, looking at joining a t2 as an experienced consultant. the recruiter mentioned the job was part of this specific practice being built out in reaction to a recently won 5 year project. if i am hired into this team, would i be expected to be linked to this project for the entire 5 years? my concern is that the position ends up being contract-like with no exposure to other projects and teams and that my fate would be too closely linked with this project.
I am trying to get into the Program Management space, but all jobs I have seen needs Program Management experience.
I have 2 years of REAL project management experience and 4 years of project management experience if I stretch it to include college capstone projects and stuff like that.
What is the best way to go about this? Anyone went through this same trouble? What roles/companies should I be looking at?
You can not join any competitor (WITCH) after resigning Infosys... Is this true?
I have read in offer something like you can not work for similar client with whom Infosys is working but still not clear. Please clarify if anyone have any idea.
I seem to go through this cycle where I'll try to fix a problem, fix it and then go back to my old ways. I'm trying to fight against it but basically my performance review is coming up and I think it's likely I'm going to be let go because of my failure to meet expectations. Earlier in the year I was going through a rough time and working through it, I have gotten better over the course of the year but I feel it's not enough. I got fired from my last job. I'm so sick of this cycle
MBB in Brisbane? Looking to relocate post-MBA. I see plenty of linkedin profiles with Brisbane listed as location yet only McKinsey has an office listed on their site which I’ve been told is just used for client meetings. Is this true or is there a genuine local presence?
Is it normal for directors to indirectly tell you to bill 45hrs to a client with no cap to get your utilization up and to increase their collections? There's probably 5hrs of actual work for me to do. First year in consulting, so I don't know if this is the norm. I've also had another scenario where the invoice was too low and was asked to add a few more hours to the bill
Nothing like being told on a Friday afternoon that a client wants to close a deal the Tuesday after Christmas. How do I politely tell the parter “excuse me, but what the fuck”?

This guy helped me today finding a bus stop and then thanked me for talking to him. He mentioned people aren’t as social in downtown. I was in a rush and forgot to tell him that I’d be happy to be friends with him. How do I find him now 😩😩
Applied through the GS jobs portal on 10/5 for the early careers program in SLC, one position in trade and transaction management, the other in client services/sales support.
Heard back through the recruiter on 10/8 and just got my HireVue last night (10/13) and completed it today 10/14. Both of the positions are currently saying “Resume Under Review”
Any insight to this at all? How long it’s taken to get a super day invite back? How soon after did you get a rejection or offer?

Looking to purchase my first rental property in the near future with two “partners” via an LLC. If I run the property at a loss (including 27.5 year depreciation and interest deductions), am I able to off set those losses against my active income?

Had the most amazing mtg today...I was the only woman on a creative call with 5 men (I am a producer FYI). They were brainstorming campaign slogans...typically I shy away from making creative suggestions, but we were going around in circles so I said “what if it were just X”. Everyone just kinda nodded and moved on. 20 minutes later a dude makes the SAME EXACT suggestion. Everyone flips - immediately loves it. The CD says “that’s the one, mtg over”. It was so surreal I cant do anything but LOL

I’m in an open relationship, a first for me. Not something I was looking for, trying to figure out if this can work for me. To be clear, we were never exclusive, but now we are beyond the initial dating phase. I honestly don’t understand how this works and need advice. In a typical relationship, I would expect to be first choice for weekend plans. Here I have to check if he’ll be available. Is it reasonable to ask that certain days are mine? All advice on this topic welcomed

I work for a creative consulting agency and I’m unsure what I want to do with my career. I’m a 25 female living in nyc. I make slightly less than $60k and I’ve been working since August 2019. Not sure if I should try and go for an MBA, get into a traditional management consulting firm, switch careers altogether. I like where I work now, but the pay isn’t likely to increase for a few years, and I feel like I’m not learning or growing as much (pandemic WFH). Any advice? I’m stressing myself out.
