Over communicate with your superiors to make sure you’re on top of your work, particularly in the beginning. You’ll quickly realize that know people will just expect you to magically know things that you were never held responsible for before.

Be encouraging to staff, but also take the time to really train them and teach them every chance you get. It will ultimately make your life easier when they get the swing of things

Be encouraging. Staff and interns need guidance and support. And be on top of your projects.

Background story - I interviewed with a company that I really want to work for for a role that I was a perfect fit for. I went through 5 rounds of interviews then was told that they ended up going with an internal referral however the entire team loved me so much and they're looking for other roles for me. I thanked them for their time and didn't really take their word but 2 weeks later I get contacted again for another opportunity on a different team. (Cont'd in comment)

Hi Folks,

My joining date is 1st August in @PwC India, I received another offer and asked HR to match it. She came back with another offer less than what I got some where else. I was waiting for revised offer letter but yet no luck. I called HR and now she is saying its still in process and waiting for approval from Business head. Should I wait or join other company on same date?

Roasted Acorn Squash & Kale Pasta with Pecan Breadcrumbs - Everything about this pasta says Fall! The sweet caramelized roasted acorn squash seasoned with sage. The slight bitterness of the kale, and the nuttiness of the pecan breadcrumbs. Combined in a Parmesan butter cream sauce. All the makings of a cozy and decadent autumn dinner.

Good luck bro/sis. It's hard work going on your own. Be prepared to do all the client work, recruiting, HR, IT, admin, and anything else. You have to do it all or be responsible for it all.
