Hi Fishes, Looking for a referral at EY. Note: I have given the interview in Sept for a client & they didn't offer the role to me.

I’m over the moon excited about an opportunity to work as a growth strategist at a startup. It’s client facing where I’d work as a strategy consultant for clients to grow their profits by using the startup’s product/business model.

Thoughts or experiences with this?
Help! Applying to a job and one of the only real requirement is to show how I’m “adept at understanding client needs, and designing and implementing creative solutions”. My issue is I work in risk advisory and most of our client engagements don’t actually involve implementation. We usually present our findings and recommendations and move on. What’s the best way I can tackle this? I’m coming up blank and the deadline is soon.

Does anyone have advice for working with a client with an extreme language barrier? My client is very nice but English is his second language, I don’t think he’s understanding most of what I’m saying, and he doesn’t provide any of the information I ask for.

We are a family of 4- husband, myself and 2 boys. We flew to Miami and came back. Other than being in flight and at the airport where we double masked, we were all by ourselves avoiding crowded places. Once back, my son got a cold, cough and slight fever too. We went to urgent care and they took a covid test, awaiting results. Now I’m super anxious and scared and feel stupid for exposing my kids. Anyone else in the same position ? Looking for positive vibes.

I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
