Best consulting firms for real inclusion?
Has anyone leveraged an offer at another firm to get a raise at their current firm? If so, were you successful and were there any long term impacts within the current firm because they think you tried to bail? (Getting recruited by other firms for higher TC but enjoy current firm’s project types more.)
Has anyone taken short term disability leave for a mental breakdown? I’m like 5 minutes from a breakdown and I just want to know what my options. I have a psychiatrist, do I need her to tell work I need treatment?

Feeling like consulting isn’t the best career for me b/c of the lifestyle and I met someone who I hate being apart from every wk. But I always wanted to reduce gender gap, so I feel conflicted/guilty.
When it comes to recruiting, is it good for the industry when the first word out of HR is "diversity" and not "talent?"

So I have applied for 21 jobs in the last 3 weeks and I have had just 1 recruiter reach out and no interviews yet. Most of them are for jobs I feel I am a strong fit for. Is it a clear indicator that my resume is not attractive? Or is this level of striking out expected?
