How to break into PE post MBA (HSW) if I have consulting (ACN) but no I-bank exp? I’m good with financial modeling, so I don’t think the technical interview would be a problem. And if I do break in, would my opportunities be limited in the future for any reason? (Ex. MBB -> I can get on partner track...can I ever hope to get on a similar track at KKR, etc. if I try to break in and join a smaller fund first?)

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
Anyone taken any courses or certifications at product school and been successful with their job search? They have some certification courses for free and was wondering if they would be helpful.

Was forced out of a firm after more than a decade last year. Started my own law firm. Today I got a new client who called my old firm and fired one of my ex colleagues to come with me and told them they were coming to my firm. The colleague and I were close, but this is business and I don’t feel bad. Although I have been acquiring unhappy clients of my old firm for a while now, this was the first who was on a current retainer with the former firm. Life is much better on my own. :)

What are some reasons to decline a second interview? I recently interviewed for an Internal Audit role but I didn’t feel like the pay range matched the job.

Their pay range is 65K - 75K DOE.

Do any of you feel like the focus on mental health in schools is disingenuous and handled poorly? I feel as though the school district and teachers do not have the real training to contend with some of the students' issues. I also feel as though many schools are doing more damage than good by not follow real evidence-based strategies by clinical psychiatrists to help these children.

I am overwhelmed with the current state of affairs over the last six mos and six weeks. From COVID and making sure my team feels ‘ok’, to the elevation of BLM due to the long overlooked atrocities, my building my destroyed by riots and looters and then boarded up, LGBTQ focusing on the negative history instead of the pride that I so dearly love, Brands pulling out of FB (when hate is so clearly more pervasive than just on FB)...I don’t want anything swept under the rug - I am craving happiness
