I was asked to provide a writing sample after an interview today. All the memos I've written are client confidential nor do I have easy access to. Since I recently graduated, should I just use...
Trouble networking virtually; I started recently, 3 months ago. I am not sure how projects/internal moves work but I was wondering if anyone has advice on networking virtually? I am finding it tricky because I don't know anyone apart from my team & I can't view Talent Marketplace because I am on a billable project, not sure how long it will go. I enjoy my work and not looking to move just yet, I wanted to see what else is out there and looking for opportunities to network with more people.
Having a farewell zoom party after our project closed out tonight with people that range analyst - partner. Any fun zoom games to play?

What are the industry standards/averages for Total Comp/Managed Revenue for “client partners” or “account partners”?
I heard a news about few people who are in bench were laid off recently. Is it true? Anyone heard about this? One of my friend's friend who is around 2 years was laid off. She was told by talent team that clients are asking for more experience candidates and they were not able to match her to any project. She is from Salesforce practice. Please confirm if anyone heard this type of news.
Hi bowl, I'm not okay today. I woke up feeling off, then my project told us that my workstream is ending this coming Friday. I feel like an after thought, I feel so anxious and so tired. I know I should eat today but I just want to lay down in bed and disappear. I'm sorry for this post, I just needed to write this and cry as I do it.
B4 strategy or general 🐠, would love your advice. Currently, 2 YOE at a well known non B4 firm doing PI/Transformation work. I didn’t get promoted this year because I didn’t have enough experience in my particular group because I was staffed on a different project for awhile. I’m interested in Strategy analyst roles (1 YOE). Will me not being promoted hurt my chances? I’ll probably get promoted at the beginning of 2022. Should I wait until then to apply? Thanks.

As a copywriter, I’m about to apply to a job that is more in the strategist realm. The reason I want it is because I’m intensely passionate about the client. Any tips to help sell my writing experience as a strategist? Anyone make this change and want to share advice?
I am going to give resignation notice on Friday (2 weeks). Or should I resign on Monday? There are also client meetings next week and not sure if that makes it awkward for my team.
I’m in digital planning/buying. Do people need to get a masters at some point to keep progressing in their careers? What type of careers (needed for client side?) is an MBA helpful for down the line?
Any tips for building a client base from scratch? I’m a 4th year associate at a firm of 12 attorneys. I practice in business, compliance, and real estate (primarily on partners’ files) and don’t litigate. Most of the partners’ clients are wealthy friends or friends of friends (not my circle). Associates are not referred business, even cold calls, and so far “networking” events like Chamber of Commerce luncheons have been a bust. I equate a book to autonomy and career choice and pressure is on.
Hello! Has anyone taken the PMP prep course offered by Project Management Academy? If so, could you please provide me with a coupon code. Thanks!
On the bench and anxious! Does everyone have a project lined up immediately after a project ends even if that project weren't the top choice?
New to Project Management. Today my company asked me to PM a new customer Project. The Project is assigned a team with a technical lead. My career so far has been in development, but I have already been a lead on projects where managers had little presence and I had to do a lot of customer interactions. However, I have never been present in a project kick-off and high level decision making processes. What do I need to find out on early stages of the discussion, and what to ask in onboarding?
Quit my old firm, started my new one 4 weeks ago. On a understaffed first project acting as senior /manager with a difficult client. Thinking about quitting to go back to my old firm. Thoughts? Left on good terms/open door with my team offering a counter offer previously.
I am really starting to lose my patience with the WFH conversation. I understand that some roles can be completely executed at home, but our office manager just complained that 3 days per week starting in September is too much for them. Their entire job is based around our physical space but all these NYT op-eds about how WFH is the only way has sparked entitlement.
How do you feel about your firm's benefits package, on retirement (401K), PTO, parental leave, and health insurance? Curious to see whether and how you think your firm needs to make adjustments.
I landed a first interview at my dream company and role, but I received a rejection after. All I had was a phone screening interview, I can’t understand how I could have been cut just from this? (CONT
If you’re a young creative and leave your agency to go in house for the next gig, are you shooting yourself in the foot for later on?
If there was an app that managed your healthcare life and would: 1) keep track of annual appointments (i.e. annual physical, dentist, eye, gynecology, etc.) 2) store all your health insurance(s) information 3) automatically sync to your teledoc (or other like) account(s) to schedule appointments for you, and 4) track all your healthcare expenses for the year (HSA or non-HSA) would you use it?
I’m a gambling guy and I can bet $10,000 that Trump does not have COVID and this is a ploy to sway voters through sympathy.,. Though fake, Trump will reduce his social media presence for some days and then return announcing full recovery. Should that happen, he’ll win the election because the country will see him as a “hero”.
Yesterday 2,216 innocent Americans died from COVID. Today, Donald Trump’s only public action was pardoning a person who plead guilty to lying to the FBI to protect Trump. I dare anyone to try to defend that.
When updating your linked in profile, if you were working toward another degree (MBA, phd, etc) would/should you include that info?

Anyone have experience with FDD at a B4 vs more of a specialized firm like A&M? I'd expect the latter to pay more, but curious if the deals worked on are actually different or there would be a diff vibe at an A&M tier. Trying to get out of audit, but not sure it's worth sticking in B4 since not feeling EY at the moment.
I am a newly promoted manager (~5months), I'm interviewing for manager at another big 4 (homegrown, so need better comp haha). 1st round was behavioural with a Partner and SM, but final round is with two newly promoted SMs. This doesn't add up. Has anyone had a similar experience? Why would they have more junior people do the final round interview? Thanks in advance!

So what do you guys do at happy hours to make them more interesting? What do you drink? I find them boring because it’s not networking with new people and I’m sick of water or sprite.
Is there a reason why Facebook is hiring so many positions in NYC? I feel like everyday I see 5+ new posted, makes me worried there is high turnover or something and almost deters me from applying. Anyone have any scoop?
