If I got laid off, can my friends at other firms submit me for a referral bonus to be hired as an experienced associate/staff? Or is the entire point to poach from direct competitors?
Why the fuck do people keep questioning for exit ops and then go on saying they're #askingforafriend. This shits anonymous you dumb fucks, we all know you're asking for yourself, quit being a pussy
For god's sake, if you are opening your mouth at anytime during the day in the audit room, brush your teeth or get some breath mints...

My friend (recent grad) wants to apply to Accenture Strategy through my referral. Is ACN Strategy hiring right now?
How feasible is it to find a job in the industry or another consulting firm just by applying online / LinkedIn / harassing recruiters vs. knowing someone who can do a referral?
Do you guys write cover letters when applying online (aka no referral)? I used to follow that rule and then got bored, but I'm wondering how much difference it really makes these days
Currently a contractor looking to eventually get an FTE position. Suggestions on a good way to go about this? Don't have a lot of analysis experience but have lots of excel knowledge
I have a good understanding of options but not the various strategies and such. Can y’all recommend some good research sources? Does mostly everyone use RH or a different brokerage?

Would you rather have an overwhelming amount of work on your plate or barely any work at all? I’ve experienced both and I can honestly say that I’d rather have an overwhelming amount of work. If it seems like no one needs my help on anything, I just end up feeling self-conscious about the quality of my work and my reputation as a professional.
Agreed to join my mom for a virtual knitting class. It's me and 30 grandmas on zoom and this is honestly the best Friday I've had in forever

🐟 Web devs - I'm currently part of a 2nd interview panel this week for a frontend dev post internally but I also like to dedicate some time outside of work to review and provide feedback for portfolios, github projects, open source contribs in preparation for any upcoming interviews you may have.

Anyone have any tips for getting past the "new consultant" anxiety? Everything from how I look to the team to my first month's utilization rate has me staying up at night...
Do y’all notice that the caliber of FAANGMULA talent seems very meh. Like program managers etc making 200k+ with chill hours, non-target schools and average work experience.

Junior litigators, how are you all doing? Am I the only one finding it impossible to manage my own caseload, take on new urgent assignments from partners, and not be burnt out right now? Getting to the point where I’m so behind that I sometimes feel too overwhelmed to even start on my task list. Doesn’t help that partners take forever to review my work so i can get the product to the client. Looking for commiseration & encouragement that things will look up lol!
