Not so fun one: drank too much at the holiday party and feel like a total idiot. Nothing happened but still, lesson learned. Any advice on how to recover?
What is the purpose of a flipped classroom? Some teachers are doing their lessons via video so the kids are prepped before class. Then, what do they do in class?
What do you think that the education system needs to do, to get young people to be better prepared with challenges in life? For example, I grew up in Malaysia, national secondary schools had home science lessons, where we learnt from ironing to cooking to carpentry to sewing to plumbing to soldering on a circuit board where we did individually or in teams. To me, these skills altogether prepped me with a lifelong ‘Swiss Army knife’! Anyone with children with ideas?
Hey fellow Disney Lovers, I generally have a few lessons in which I can use Pixar shorts to teach students how to identify and discuss literary signposts, how to identify and explain the development of theme, character traits, and other narrative elements. What are some of your favorite shorts? I am trying to incorporate activities where my students get to choose their own clips for independent practice with these skills and need a variety to draw from.
Almost got hit by a car crossing a street because I was too busy chortling at a FB post 😐😐😐 instead of paying attention. Lesson learned.
QQ for any TTP users: what would you recommend as the most accelerated use of the portal? I have my GMAT in about 10 days. I've had access for half a month and I'm through ~20% problems. I've only targeted sections where I felt I needed the most improvement mainly focusing on chapter tests. If I haven't met the accuracy needed, I've then spent time on the lessons and usually hit the accuracy after. For additional context, aiming for Q47+. I was on a Q45 on a Veritas mock last week.
What are the lessons that you have learnt from Strategy Consulting that you may not learn in other management consulting?
Lesson that one of the greatest managers ever to exist told me: Don’t ever, for any reason, do anything to anyone, for any reason, ever, no matter what, no matter where, or who, cont...
Does anyone here do dropshipping? I want to start and I’m looking for some direction on how to do so. If anyone has experience doing this, I’d appreciate some advice/lessons you learned along the way!
It's finally happened. I can feel that I have given up. The breaking point? My CD making a big deal out of having a call on Saturday at 1 pm to look over a deck that was due this morning. I rearrange my schedule. I move my kids piano lesson. I stay up until 2 the night before making sure everything is in line. He never calls. Doesn't respond to my text. I send him the deck and he doesn't respond until Sunday afternoon. Then gets pissy when I say I can't hop on the phone at that exact moment.
Got an email “reminder” that weekly lesson plans are due Monday morning. I’m tired. I want to reply “no” because I don’t have time to make detailed lesson plans on their template...for lessons that I won’t follow...for a curriculum they haven’t given me yet....But I should probably just ignore it until I’m less tired so I don’t let my mouth get me in trouble. Do y’all turn in lesson plans?
For those who’ve used TTP Verbal. Approx. how many hours did it take you to complete all lessons/get through the material? For additional context, Started studying 8/30 and I’m 33% through the Quant material (includes all readings, questions throughout the readings, and some of the “easy”practice tests. I have 7 weeks of studying left so trying to plan how much time I can leave for verbal. Thanks!
Does the workload lesson over time, or do you just get used to the longer hours? Hmmmm...
Lesson learned: Wear yoga pants with no panties to get free shots from bartender while picking up takeout. Whiskey? Yes, please!
Does anyone know of user friendly resources to teach Tinkercad to 4th and 5th graders? The website lessons seem to make lots of assumptions.
I'd love to connect with other elementary librarians to discuss lesson ideas, class management styles, etc.!
When you do work for school (lesson planning and/or grading), do you keep the TV or music on in the background? I like to, but it's also distracting and makes me way less efficient.
What's your go-to lesson?
I’m sore. BF and I WFH all last week and let’s just say coffee breaks got on the wild side. Let’s see what this week holds..
As someone with a background in the military, is it worth it to try to go back to the government as a tax analyst or senior tax analyst for the Dept of the Treasury? I'm wondering if I'll have an edge in getting hired as I've been at the GS-13 level before I left the military and I'm hoping I can use that time in service to add to a pension time requirement in the government.
Any budget friendly WFH chair recommendations? Was looking at a gaming chair, but bad reviews have put me off.
I asked a vice chair in my group to talk informally about working remotely going forward (we already are remote now and was largely flexible pre covid) and also a possible pay bump. This is my first salary/work benefit negotiation and I’m so nervous I might just unhire myself before we actually get to talk 😭😭
Do you count internships in your years of experience? What if it was a long internship that didn't feel like interning and just felt like full-time but was labeled internship?
Need help on referrals. I’ve had my book for 14 years and never really been good at asking for referral. Is sending out a letter to current clients asking for two referrals a bad idea?
Is Lewis Brisbois making a concerted effort to attract top tier laterals? Seen multiple V100 associates lateral to there. Move seeks baffling on the surface so wondering if it's anything other than personal circumstances
Salary negotiation question: has an employer ever initially offered you more than the lowest number in your desired range?
Any one gotten any updates from EY LAW about H1B decisions ? I got fast tracked and I’m pretty sure it’s been 15 days already

Anyone can recommend a great workout plan/program that‘s doable in limited space (think: hotel room) using bodyweight and/or rubberbands? Used to do Insanity Max 30/ P90X but didnt find a version to download to my phone and it requires a bit more space. Especially now that hotel gyms are still mostly closed due to COVID-19
Slalom manager or senior manager comp? I’m not sure if the levels, but looking for equivalent. Looking at strategy as well
Any McKinsey fish willing to chat about a potential referral? I believe I’d be a strong candidate (and earn you some $$$). Details in comments, thank you!
Finally watched The Social Dilemma on Netflix. It didn’t say anything that we didn’t already know about social media and big tech, but it’s still alarming and worth the watch. The biggest question I have after watching is why do people still romanticize FAANG? Is just purely the money and prestige? Are we selling our soul for a highly regarded exit opportunity? Just curious.
Google Technical Solutions Consultant interview process... can I expect a process similar to google Software engineering interviews? Or is it less technical?
If you request a salary that’s too high does the hirer usually tell you it’s too high and offer you the salary they had in mind or just ghost you and move on to the next candidate?
