I received offer letter from Accenture mentioned joining date is 1st-Oct-22 as I had told them that my notice period is of 3 month,Later I got to know that it is 1 month as i am still in probation. So I asked them to give early joining.

HR told me to put resign and let him know my LWD and as per that he will send revised offer letter.
My last working day is 20 July. Still I haven't received revised offer letter.

Can anyone pls suggest what should I do?

Will they provide early joining?

How do you transition from big 4 consulting to big law? My clients are all funds, and I do international tax consulting. I have used my connections to refer me into probably 10 big law firms and it’s not working. One most recently came back and said they aren’t interested bc I have no law firm experience. How am I supposed to get it though? I can’t go to lower ranked firms bc my clients are all “big.” … any suggestions appreciated!

I’m so stressed out. I haven’t been here very long (about 15 months), and my wife is expecting our second baby this winter. I’ve been having issues with my managers for the past few months, and I feel like it’s just a matter of time before I’m gone. I want to look for a new job, but I’m afraid it will be an impossible time to get hired elsewhere. Anyone got any advice for getting a new role as a finance engineer?

4YOE, all current company. Overall happy, I think they’ve compensated me fairly over 70% raise over the years plus bonus. But seeing other salaries I am thinking perhaps I can make more in tech and also gain more experience as current company has pretty outdated systems. I feel some loyalty to current company but also scared that I might regret if new job doesn’t turn out great. Thoughts?
