I am going to a volunteering event tonight. I'm just wondering what else I can do while in the office. The HR lady made it sound like you can hang around a water cooler and get staffed on a project.

Read up on the leaders doing things in a space you're interested in working in. Reach out to the direct reports of those leaders and try to help them with BD/ potentially a project. You'll get to network with the folks you're interested in working with, do a project that you have interest in and probably meet more people doing similar work. #triplewin

We like to help each other out PwC1 and a lot of things can go wrong in the aforementioned game plan ^

Lol op, there is no networking in the office. Such bullshit from HR

Ask who does work you're interested in then go introduce yourself

LMAO OP, usually no networking in the office for me.

Opportunity to go to an EV/tech company for a promotion and easily 20% raise in total comp but don’t think I want to stay there long. Would you still do it and use it as a stepping stone?
Worried the experience there might make it hard to come back into consulting or other work.
