Hey Fishes,

For the folks who have done an MBA and have stayed in consulting throughout, why did you feel the need of getting an MBA and how has it helped you achieve your goals? Trying to understand what value can an MBA add to my career if my short term goal is to continue in consulting

Worked in marketing for almost ten years but usually for companies consisting of 20 people or less. A year ago I landed a content marketing job with a company of 200 and it’s the first time I’ve been focused on “one” marketing function. Thinking of moving to a PR focused position though. I have experience (I’m also a journalist by trade) but not on a large scale like they might prefer.

What are some tips/trick/statements/advice for expressing transferable skills and experience?

Hi my sharks 🦈🙂👋🏻
I received a Welcome Kit from KPMG India as my joining date is just a month away.

However, I won't be joining KPMG as I have far better offers. Hence this welcome kit has put me in a very awkward and uncomfortable position.

So when I would be declining the joining via a mail /phone call, should I tell the HR that I want to return this welcome kit as I won't be joining?

Will they take it back? I feel it is morally and ethically wrong to keep this kit knowing I won't join.
