ty!

The above feels pretty accurate. Would also note that you have a fair bit of say in how fast the process goes, specifically between being told you have an interview and actually doing it

Mine was 4 weeks at BCG

Dang BCG is on top of things, quick question if y’all don’t mind, should I be targeting the consultant level? (3 YOE, 2 at B4 consulting and 1 at large startup)

Probably not, likely SA (12-18 months to C)

I have built a really strong connection with my client, but it has gotten to the point where she asks me to schedule meetings for OTHER people (not myself nor her). She has me take attendance in meetings with 50+ attendees as well. I feel like a personal assistant on top of all the other work I have to do. Am I over-reacting? What should I do?

Ladies who have gotten omicron - did you inform your clients? Or just say you were sick? I work remotely so I am not sure if people are expecting us to continue working. My male managers both got it and passed it off as not a big deal. In all reality I could continue working I am just much slower. Does this warrant a team wide announcement? I would rather just do my quarantine and ride it out. I am a bit slower and not on camera so I feel like maybe I should mention something.

Today id like to share the first ever stock I purchased as a bright eyed 23 year old dummy. I hold onto it to remind myself every time I log in to do my research and understand what I am investing in. It also reminds me that just because a stock doesn’t cost a whole lot, doesn’t mean it’s cheap. I’ve since learned many more lessons, but I always chuckle at this one. May all your lessons be cheap and successes be large!
