At KPMG it’s one of those points you must hit to be considered for promotion. I would reach out to as many of your internal contacts as possible, your resource manager, anyone. If there isn’t anything available from them then search on your internal database for people who work in an area you’re interested in and reach out.

Other than paying bills on time and keeping credit utilization low... how do you increase your credit score? Mine isn’t bad, but it’s been pretty stagnant for the past 2 years. Should I have a mix of credit? Anything that works for others would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

How much should partners be expected to communicate with one another in terms of demands on associates’ time? Should associates be managing all the way up, or is it reasonable to expect some level of coordination at the top? My firm does not have a workflow coordinator so I am curious as to how other firms handle this issue. This has been a problem at my firm which has left to people leaving after being over-utilized.
