Does anyone else feel like this has been a “lost” year for career growth due to layoffs, furloughs, hiring/promotion freezes, the difficulties of all remote work, etc? Or is it just me...
Anyone here who was already working in the US on H1B but trying to leave consulting or laid off, ever take up an offer for a new job in Europe/Asia and transfer back to the US, either on the previous active H1B or L1?
For those who survived layoffs and crises before, what things and actions made a difference? How'd you come out stronger? Did you pivot into something new entirely?

Just got my $6k severance check. I don’t need the money right now since I’ve got a bit of a cushion in my checking. Do I: 1) put it all down towards my student loan (it’ll cover half of the balance remaining). 2) open a HYSA and put it all there (currently don’t have a savings account for an emergency fund) 3) Combination of 1 & 2 4) Other?
Networking: I’m trying to build a network with MBB employees but I’m searching for roles in another country where I’ve got minimal school connections. Should I start by building a network in my home country and ask them if they can put me in touch with someone in my target location? Or just go straight to people in my intended location with cold requests/emails? Thoughts and views welcome!

I just graduated with my MHA and took the opportunity at a Tier 3 firm. My goal late in my studies was to be at MBB. What can I do going forward to still reach that goal at some point in my career? Thank you for any advice and I do regret I didn’t know about the opportunities of consulting in undergrad or early graduate school.
MBB, Tier 2, Big four consulting 🐠, has any of your firm or your office entered at least the first phase of the return-to-office plan? To my knowledge consulting industry has been more conservative (almost everyone is still remote) and hasn’t made any substantial moves unlike banking industry, Is that true?
i just had an excellent review with my supervisors. we are aligned i am ready to be promoted. i will be moving from project manager to senior project manager. the catch; my company has laid off 75% of its staff, and cut our salaries by 25%. timing is unclear, since we work in the live entertainment space. what is fair to ask for? i have 7 years work force experience, am the only one in my position, touch every creative deliverable the agency makes, and updated and streamlined 10+ processes.
Talking with clients & friends in the financial sector... things will prob get worse before they get better. We’ve only seen the first of layoffs and as Q2 draws to a close, shit may hit the fan 😬😑

Am looking at exit opportunities and researching FAANG. Curious to understand why anyone would join Amazon which has the worst benefit of the FAANG? Can anyone share what’s better at Amazon that I am not aware of? Amazon and Facebook on sites lined up in January! So researching now!;)

Experienced hire that just finished training with new company and currently on the bench. I’m based in a small office with minimal consulting folks - should I be going into the office?
I have an interview coming up in 2 days. My SQL skills are kind of rusty since I haven't used it for years. I'm not sure if i will be asked some SQL but it's one of the requirements. Any tips on how to get ready for it in such a short time?
