I am an HR Business Partner at my current company but have been afforded a few human capital consulting opportunities with various big 4 firms. I don’t think I’d want to make a career out of it given the long hours, however I’m contemplating accepting the role and doing consulting for 2 years and then going back to industry. Is this a practical path? How hard is the transition from consulting to industry and what sort of roles have ppl landed that did transition to industry? Would love advice!

Are you happy being a lawyer? Simple yes or no. No qualified answers like “most of the time.” If it’s a most of the time then yes because no one person likes their job all the time, even people who are living their dream. Now if you want to say no but it might be the area or I’m tired of it that’s good. Explaining why yes or no is okay.
31 yo SM here- feel like I have lost myself in my career. I am single, I’ve let my health go & am very overweight, always hyper stressed/ quick to get frustrated, work most weekends & nights, my college / childhood friendships all seem like they’re on fumes/ like I’ve been left behind without a husband/kids & I’m the harsh / successful career girl who doesn’t come off as warm. New friends seem impossible. Out of touch with family. This is not the real me.. Advice on how to get out of the rut?

FEELING LOW☹️ My family knows that I am appearing for interviews regularly and attending calls from multiple HR's frequently. Appeared for around 25interviews, failed in all of them. In some the requirement did not match, in some I could not perform well. I have been a top performer at my current org, but after failing so much I feel low now. My family is my strength,but deep down I am feeling are they starting to think that I am a waste at my work.Don't know if this is becoming painful inside me.

I recently started a role in industry where 2 managers report to me and they each have 3-4 staff and senior accountants report to them. It’s a large company with over 5,000 employees. I have weekly 1:1 meetings with the 2 managers. How do I determine how much direct interaction and communication to have with the staff and seniors? Specifically I’m looking for examples from other people in similar roles.
