Sorry to read this. Take a deep breath and make small incremental changes in the three major circles, family, work and health. ie.... start having breakfast with the family.... start block scheduling one afternoon at work to get caught up... start with taking a 15 minute walk at lunch.... breathe and stick to it and next week will be a little better...next month significantly better

New to consulting w a strong Procurement/Strategic Sourcing industry background. But I’m bored and want to use my MBA on Strategy projects. Advice on transitioning and which firms would be probable?

What professional networking groups or specific posting avenues would you go to when seeking a new role? I’m researching new ways that mgmt consultants seek new opportunities other than LinkedIn. I have decent response rates on there but I know not everyone looks at that site. I figured this is a great place to get suggestions. :). Thanks in advance.

Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.

Does anyone else struggle with how they interact with colleagues at the same level as them or in general?
