Hi Sachin, here’s a quick recap as a current Recruiter. -you can remove high school info -need clarification on achieved next to your college information -if any of your experience was remote or hybrid, I would add that to the title of the role. I hope this helps!

That's a good point. I'll add if my work was hybrid, etc. on my CV. Thanks

I would remove High School information. Does 2.1 mean something like a high GPA or summa cum laude? I would highlight that for sure, if it was equivalent to summa or magna cum laude. If your grades are bad, I wouldn't highlight or put that on a resume, but absolutely make it available if the hiring manager asks. Fundamentally, I am not sure if 2:1 is good or not, in the US anything over 3.0 GPA is pretty decent.

Hi, just for clarification, the UK uni grading system is the following. First-class honours (1st) – 70% or higher. Second-class honours, upper division (2.1) – typically 60 – 69% Second-class honours, lower division (2.2) – typically 50 – 59% Third-class honours (3rd)- typically 40 – 49% Thanks for tip about high school experience. I know in the UK some employers still ask for it, and some don't - it depends on who you talk to I guess

Obviously consulting is a very big field for a reason. Curious how consultants consult on things they don’t have expertise on? A lot of companies have a lot of PhD level of subject level experts, what do consulting firms provide that the corporations don’t provide internally? I remember I was surprised talking to a friend who worked for pwc consulting consulting on a chemical project of a company, since he def is not a chemist by any means.

I’m not being supported on my current project. Certain team members don’t respond to my messages/e-mails, but respond to others. I’m experiencing a coldness towards me, but I’m new to the firm, so they don’t know me and I’ve tried my best to be friendly and helpful. My Line Manager displays similar behavior, but is sometimes nice. It’s weird. I’ve raised this to my Counselor and he thinks that it’s simply a poor fit and not my fault. Have you ever experienced this? What did you do?

I have a colleague from work who’s going through a tough time (his wife filed for a divorce). Initially I felt bad and even allowing him to work at my place. Now I’m beginning to realize that the guy has a huge character issue. He has a serious gambling problem and was fired from his 3 previous jobs (two from CPA firms for performance related issues and one from a sales position where he was stealing Company’s inventories). How do I get away from that kind of person w/o making it obvious?
